Lockwell thin film ceramic insulation coating or Lockwell CHI is a new generation thin film insulation system. Lockwell CHI gets its insulation properties from a range of different additives including vacuum filled ceramic microspheres (1), silicon microspheres (2) and pigments/carrier (3,4). The additives act to slow down the transfer of energy (heat) through the coating like a cross between double-glazing and regular insulation.
Application ranges from
Industrial Plants, Pipes, Tanks, Mineral Processing, Power Generation, Containers, Freezer Rooms, Refrigerated Trucks, Cold Storage Plants, Workshops, Pharmaceutical Facilities and Residential Roofing.
• No corrosion under insulation
• Reflects heat
• Reduces energy loss
• Excellent thermal efficiency
• Slows down heat transfer
• Easy application with brush or roller
• Can be top-coated
• Compatible with any surface
• Internal or external application
• Excellent UV resistance
Lockwell CHI is an easy to apply ceramic beaded coating designed to insulate the substrate to which it is applied. It is a high-solids, thin-film insulating coating that can be used internally or externally and non-flammable.
The combination of the ceramic beads and the distribution of sizes to fill as much of the volume as possible means that it has exceptional insulation properties. It provides both reflective and insulation performance, in a fraction of the thickness of other common insulation materials.
