Deep Energy Solutions, A Bechtel Company, has been offering its services to Southern California for 25 years. As a general contractor active in energy efficiency we are excited to offer a new generation of Ceramic Insulation Coating.
CIC Heat Block is a latex-based Ceramic Insulation Coating containing ceramic beads that provides many benefits including blocking heat, dampening sound, and reducing or eliminating moisture.
Heat-block will lower both surface and ambient temperatures from any heat source using both reflectivity and insulating properties. It Reflects 90% of solar radiation and has the ability to withstand operating temperatures up to 400° F. When used on hot surfaces such as mechanical equipment the surface temperature can be reduced to the OSHA standard.
Conventional insulation absorbs heat until saturated and then radiates the stored heat to inside of the space. CIC Heat Block has very low conductivity and has excellent initial reflective properties, resulting in dramatically less heat transfer into the building envelope. Refrigeration stays in, sun radiation stays out, hot machinery won’t burn. Keeps heat and cool where it needs to be, thus minimizing temperature and energy losses.
Tests have shown up to 30% decrease in temperature, more extreme temperatures provide greater results. You will get greater solar blocking at 110 degrees than at 75 degrees.
By using CIC Heat Block on the interior of a building or on the housing of equipment that is generating noise, acoustical sound dampening benefits will be noticeable. A good example is using CIC Heat Block on the common wall between a sound studio and clothing store. After an application of 40 mils the sound was noticeably muffled.
With extreme temperature difference, surfaces tend to produce moisture, like the outside of an iced drink or outside of an AC unit. An application of CIC Heat Block keeps the cool in and reduces or eliminates the moisture related to temperature changes. This also eliminates corrosion and mold caused when other types of insulation get wet.
CIC Heat Block was developed using extensive scientific testing and research. It has similar properties to those used in the space shuttle thermal protection system.
CIC is quickly and easily applied with commercial grade airless sprayer to most surfaces such as roofs, walls, HVAC ducts, masonry, and high temperature equipment. Minimal surface prep required, applies directly over existing substrates. It can be used on new construction or on a retrofit to the inside or outside of a building. It can be tinted, painted, and/or textured.
