ISBU ECO-GREEN Insulation: Ceramic Insulation Paints

  100% non-toxic, a child or pet could swallow it with no effect.  ... FACT
  Compatible with every material and surface.  ................................. FACT
  Non-polluting of course.  ..................................................................... FACT
  Safe in our water, lakes, streams, and soil.  ................................... FACT
  Highly effective: 1 mm, the thickness of a business card.  ........... FACT

    - We only know and believe the government studies and independent lab studies we
      see as evidence.
    - We see no factual negative studies from any reputable sources.
    - Our ISBU Association is not affiliated with any manufacturer or distributor of insulation.

Certainly these residential and commercial forms of Ceramic Insulation paints and coatings are
not identical to the formulas used on the NASA Space Shuttles. We think no intelligent person
would come to that conclusion.  However the research and technology from NASA has led to the
use of Cenospheres and their formulations for other insulative and thermal resistant uses.

The incredible active ingredients are hollow microscopic thermal balls filled with air. It looks like a
an off-white powder because the balls are so tiny, about the thickness of a human hair. Because
the balls are made of a pure, glass like material, they are called Ceramic. ...Ceramic Beads.

The microscopic ceramic beads (balls) have a technical name: Cenospheres, or sometimes called
micro-spheres, or nano-spheres for the smallest size. All are technically in the Cenosphere family 
of 100% non-toxic hollow glass balls that are as hard as rocks, or harder.

NASA Technology
Many new space age products have been developed through the efforts of NASA and their research
projects, but did you know that a new Ceramic Insulation coatings were originally developed and 
perfected by NASA for use on the space shuttles? Through the research of other private companies 
in the United States, the Ceramic ingredients can now be used on your home, office, storage units, 
roofs, cars and boats.  When used on ISBU, they are especially successful because the ISBU's 
are a hard surface for easy bonding, and perfect benefits because we want thin but very powerful 
insulations on ISBU so we have more usable space as we modify and combine the ISBU's creatively.

The Almost Perfect Coating
The Ceramic paints and coatings are not limited to only ISBU shipping container construction.
Although Ceramic paints are a perfect match for ISBU's, the paints and coatings are already widely 
used as the ultimate Eco-Green insulation solution. With much success, these coatings are now 
being used on prefabs, shelters, industrial buildings, offices, factories, and is gaining acceptance as 
the new solution to reduce heating and cooling cost on the normal homes. It is well adapted to top 
coating all type roofs and exteriors including wood, cement, stucco, metal, and tiles.

Once applied to a hard surface, specifically an ISBU container module, the thin coating will reflect both 
extreme heat and  and also UV rays before it even enters your home or other structure. The ceramic 
coating can be used in virtually any paint type, and virtually any color applied to walls, roofs, heat ducts, 
pipes, ...almost any hard surface you can imagine.

The best paint and coatings to use with the dry Ceramic powders are elasto-polymer paints which are 
now quite common from most dealers or distributors. 

Note: Just buying Cenosphere powder DOES NOT make a proper Ceramic paint insulation.  It truly
requires a special mix of the Cenospheres and certain proportions of other ingredients.

Benefits of Ceramic Insulation Coatings

These microscopic ceramic beads are about the thickness of a human hair; 
 - glass like ceramic composition 
 - Vacuum filled spheres
 - incredibly hard and near indestructible
 - hollow; thus creating a thermos type coating on any surface it is applied to.

The thermal coating of microscopic ceramic hollow balls has many properties including:
 - Thermal coating
 - UV coating
 - Anti-rust, corrosion
 - Sound absorption
 - Antiseptic and anti-mold
 - Fire Retardant

The space age ceramic coating can be applied by airless sprayer, roller, or paint brush; two or 
three coatings are required for maximum thermal protection. When dry, the paint with the 
Ceramic microspheres will reflect high heat and also UV rays.

Ceramic thermal coatings were developed by NASA, however they are most widely used in the 
Mid-east, Europe, and Asia for home and building insulation with incredible success. For some 
reason the U.S. building contractors are resisting this new ceramic coating technology for home 
and office insulation, even though it was developed by NASA and the effectiveness tests are 
very conclusive.  ...the rest of the world has passed the U.S. with it's own technology.

Now, with the growing demand for Shipping Container housing, prefab homes, and most
 importantly, energy savings and Eco-friendly insulations, the Ceramic Thermal coating is finally 
becoming accepted by building contractors in the U.S., both for new building construction and 
also to better insulate the roofs and walls of older construction at a very low cost.

The uses for the Ceramic micro-spheres are almost endless. Most people are surprised that the 
Ceramic micro-spheres are also the principle ingredient in the "magic coating" used by the U.S. 
Air Force to make the Stealth jets invisible...

Ceramic Spray Insulation using the Ceramic micro-sphere powder is highly effective.

NOTE: Not all manufacturers of Ceramic Coatings and Ceramic Microspheres are using credible 
formulas and materials.   [ BizGuide: Ceramic Insulation ]
