Hy Tech Insulating Ceramic Paint
Thermal Solution Products That Work!
I have a small, one bed room, top floor apartment in Southfield, Michigan. Last summer I got a $300 power bill and about went into cardiac arrest.
For a 1000 square foot apartment, this is on the high side of outrageous. I stuck my head up in the up in the attic and found out the
insulation up there was the blown stuff. A thermometer placed up there reached 155 F, about 60 F above the outside air temperature.
Using your products, I painted the ceiling and interior side of the outside walls in my living
room with your #85 "Barrier Coat" aluminum/ceramic paint. On top
of that, I painted with white paint mixed with your ceramic additive. I did not paint the back room ...
too much stuff back there to shove around.
As the gas bills show, ( note: Mr Courney sent copies of his gas bills to us ),
I used 2/3 the amount of gas last winter ( 2002 )
than I did the year before. I must state is was a whole lot colder during
the winter of 2002 than 2001. We even tied a record low temperature, set
in 1878, for one day during the first week of December.
In short, Hy-Tech ceramic additive works. Its been about nine months since I painted
my place and have just about recovered my investment. This includes
the $150 I spent on an 8 foot ladder. I only painted the living room, I can't wait to see my savings when I paint the bedroom too.
As an added bonus, I have noticed I do not hear the neighbors as much
since I have used your products. Wasn't expecting this, but sound has
as much trouble traveling through a vacuum as does heat energy.
We recently completed a 90,000 square foot building in Houma, La, an old Wal-Mart that has been converted into a climate controlled mini-storage. The flat tar and gravel roof was coated with PermaKote Plus insulating roof coating and the walls were also painted inside and out with insulating ceramic paint. Not only did these coatings enhance the appearance of the building but they also created a significant savings in the utilities for the building.
Originally it took 16 Air Conditioning units to cool the building...
it now takes ONLY 3 !
As you can see not only is there a significant savings in energy costs but also the life expectancy of the A/C units will increase approximately 4 times.

You have a winner! Last year my company started to use Hy-Tech ceramics and Bus-kote on refrigerated trailers. We have been running tests on your product for close to a year to see if what you claim is true. Well, not only have your products done what you say, they have gone well beyond my and my customers expectations! A small example for anyone thinking of applying Hy-Tech products.
This spring we applied Buskote to a Very worn in 53.5 ft refer trailer for a client. Than same afternoon we tested it against a new trailer setting dead in his yard. He and I did not believe the difference between the trailers (14 degrees!) and decided to run further tests. The results are the treated unit stayed on average 13.3 degrees cooler @ 83 degrees ambient temperature, his refer units ran 16.8% less time per cycle and 19.2% less cycles when loaded and on the road. Wow, in fuel costs alone that application was paid for in no time. The reduction in "lost load" claims and less stress on equipment cannot even be measured. I am impressed. Since these test we have tried three other brands of "ceramic insulators" to compare and they did not even come close you your product. We will be using HY-TECH exclusively from now on. Thanks for the great product!
FlexCool Insulating Systems
Last June I needed to paint my living room. A few months before I had heard from somebody who lived in a large dome tent in the mountains of Colorado at about 9,000 ft. He lived there both winter and summer. I asked what he did about insulation and he started telling me about his use of paint with ceramic bead additives, hollow spheres with vacuums inside of them. I have a M.S. degree in Physics, so I immediately understood the possibilities of what he was telling me. I wanted to add these beads to the interior paint as my house is not that well insulated and looked up ceramic bead paints on the internet. I ran across the web site for Hy-Tech Thermal Solutions and after talking to them in great detail, I decided to order their insulating ceramic paint additive. I got some paint from the local hardware store and mixed in the beads.
After painting the living room I was really pleased with the results. The echoes in the room went away and the room seemed to regulate temperatures better than an adjacent room with the same exterior exposure qualities.
After this experience I painted the fiberglass pop-top of my van with Insulating Roof paint from Hy-Tech. After the paint dried, the finish looked even better than the original top. In the hot Utah sun the van was is cooler inside when parked outside in the direct sun.
I am not often impressed with new products these days... as the hype does not seem to follow up with the experience. I must say that Hy tech's products have thoroughly impressed me so far.
We Beat the Taxas Heat!
AWESOME! That's all I can say about Hy-Tech products. I am building a new wood frame building here in Houston and decided to use Hy-Tech products to try and reduce heat intrusion through the roof and sidewall's. We setup temperature monitors inside the building so that we could compare the before and after temp's. Our first application was the spraying of the underside of the roof decking with #85 Barrier Coat, the interior temperature dropped a whopping 18° F. Several days later we sprayed the exterior with Insul-Flex insulating elastomeric and the interior temperature dropped 25°F !!!
The building is now ready for insulation on interior walls and drywall and sitting here wide open in the hot Texas sun the interior and exterior temperatures are The Same meaning there is NO HEAT GAIN from the roof or wall materials.
Hy-Tech products have proven to me they Really Work!
I own a 47 year old ranch, with a full heated basement, of which one long side is exposed to grade. It has corrugated aluminum foil insulation, which is to say, almost nothing. My block foundation has no insulation. I heat with a coal stove in the basement.
Last fall (2003) and this winter, I put two coats of #85 barrier coat, plus two coats of ceramic-loaded finish paint, on all interior surfaces of my outside walls (basement and upper level). The coal stove now adds 5 degrees more heat to the house than it did previously. In addition, traffic noise is noticeably less.
I am definitely going to cover the outside walls with Hy-Tech products next summer.

Hot Boiler Pipes Temp Reduced 45%!
This is our second order. I wanted to see how effective Hy-Tech insulating ceramics were so I put it on my boiler pipes and generated the heat to it's full capacity. The temperature on the outside of the pipes was reduced by 45% with four coats of paint. Needless to say, I am going to use Hy-Tech insulating additive on my exterior walls and interior ceilings, the reduction rate has reduced the boiler run time from a 2 hour length of time , down to 20 minutes. I highly recommend your product.
