Comments: Just wanted to let you know that your products are what you say they are. My husband and I purchased a used mobile home to live in while we build. We used the radiant barrier on the front of the trailer that is in the summer sun. We purchased the insulating additive for painting all the interior walls. We have had 2 snowstorms in the past week, getting over 16″ of snow. The snow melted and formed icicles at the edge of the roof where the inside ceiling and walls have not yet been painted with paint containing the insulating additive. Where the additive was used there are no icicles. Not very easy to do, but I am impressed and cannot wait to finish painting.
We are the HomeWood CF-Als, a FIRST LEGO League (FLL) Robotics team from Richmond, Virginia. FIRST celebrates learning about Science and Technology and during an eight week season teams build and program an autonomous robot to accomplish certain missions in two and a half minutes. The 2007 FLL theme was “Power Puzzle” and teams also studied energy choices and their impact on the environment today, tomorrow, and for future generations.
Our team conducted an energy audit on a Homewood Suites hotel. We studied current energy uses at the hotel and then developed both short term consumption changes and innovative long term renewable energy recommendations. If our short term recommendations are adopted, this Homewood Suites will become a member of the “Virginia Green Lodging” program and will be a model for many other area hotels.
The first short term suggestion we made was for the hotel to change the remainder of the rooms to compact fluorescent light bulbs saving the hotel $6275.50 over the life of the bulbs and preventing 122.5 tons of CO2 emissions. Optional linen service would cost minimal to implement and yet have a huge impact. The hotel could save 30% on linen replacement costs (currently $4000.00/month), energy use, water use, and detergent costs. Insuladd paint additive would be an innovative way for the hotel to save 20% on their heating and air conditioning costs. When they paint we recommend they use Insuladd, an insulating paint additive. Programmable thermostats are another way that the hotel could save energy on heating and air, and thus save money. The hotel is 10 years old so we recommend the appliances be replaced with Energy Star models. Since this is an all suites hotel each room has a complete kitchen so Energy Star appliances could save a huge amount of energy and water. Another suggestion that would cost very little is to put a sign on the back of each guest room door reminding people to turn off the lights before leaving. It is estimated that 63% of guests keep the lights on when they leave the room. Another low cost idea is to place a recycling bin in each room, the meeting rooms, and the kitchen.
Our first innovative long term solution is Solar Paint. Still in the developmental stages, this will use infrared rays in addition to visible light, so the efficiency will be increased from 6% to over 30%. It will be inexpensive and can be used on all surfaces such as buildings, houses, roads, and parking lots. Our second suggestion is to replace our existing landfill with a “Trash to Treasure” plant. Our landfill is scheduled to close in 2 ½-3 years, and a “Trash to Treasure” plant would be a great way to handle trash and generate clean energy at the same time. This would turn trash that we don’t need into clean energy that we can use.
What began as Robotics research turned into a team passionate about making a difference in energy conservation in their community. We learned that although the United States accounts for about 5% of the world population they use 25% of the world’s energy. The average American generates 20 tons of CO2 emissions a year and 4.5 pounds of trash a day. Locally, we learned that our landfill will be full and need to close in 2 ½ to 3 years! This information meant that it was time for us to take action and develop a plan to make a difference. We decided to not only share our findings with the hotel, but also to more broadly educate our community. We would teach simple ways to make an immediate, positive impact on the environment through energy conservation. This goal turned into the “Enlighten Richmond Energy Expo” where our theme was “One person can make a difference”.
Our goal at the Expo was for people of all ages to learn about simple changes that could make a real difference in saving energy, saving money, and saving the earth. We spent time planning ways to make this event exciting and fun as well as educational. We had a “spin the wheel” game that got people involved by answering questions on energy and water conservation and winning “energy” prizes (donated by generous companies). We had demonstrations so people could see what they were being taught. By going to different tables people learned ways to conserve energy, water, recycle, and even the importance of planting trees. This was truly a hands on event with demonstrations, prizes, games and handouts. We even had the Energy Hog getting people excited about ways to conserve energy. We also asked people to sign a pledge to replace an incandescent light bulb with a compact fluorescent light bulb. We ended up with over 600 pledges, educated over 250 people, and had a great time making a difference.
What started out as preparation for a Robotics competition turned into something larger, a team driven to make a difference in energy choices being made by their community. We wanted to get our message out there that “One person can make a difference.” One person can make a difference by doing something as simple as changing a light bulb, turning off the water while brushing their teeth, or recycling a plastic water bottle. Together we can make a difference, one small step at a time!!
We would like to thank Insuladd for their support of our efforts to educate our community on energy conservation. We loved using the Insuladd demo and talking to people about this amazing product!! This is another simple way that people can make a positive impact in the energy use of their own home.

From: RON GARVIN <firstname.lastname@example.org>
After I obtained the distributorship agreement with you, I tested the material in my shop. I am a cautious person when it comes to representing material or services to a customer.
I sprayed a metal panel with gloss white enamel, and another panel with semi-gloss off-white latex. Having been a paint distributor of automotive & industrial finishes, I was aware the test I was doing was definitely not in favor of your product.
I placed panels under an infrared lamp with a refrigeration thermometer under each panel. After a period of time I read the thermometers. The gloss white panel was 105 degrees F. The semi-gloss latex (now flat after adding insulad) was only 90 degrees F.
I did not expect such a large differential, so I switched the panels above the thermometers and repeated the test. The 2nd test only showed approximately 1 degree difference from the first test.
As a result of testing your product myself, I can approach my customers with great confidence. I am sure that our customers are going to very much appreciate the results of using this material – a great money saver in these energy costly times.
If a customer would care to call me about this material, I will happily respond,

I love your product! I am so glad I found that I could purchase just this product rather than a premixed product. I had been doing that in the past and I prefer to mix it in my own paint.

From: “Jon DeWinter” email@example.com
My name is Jon DeWinter. I am the home modification coordinator for the cities of Glendale and Peoria, Arizona. This program is through Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) from these cities and administrated by ABIL. We have a monthly newsletter that we put out to our consumers called the Bridge. The following is the article that was written about your INSULADD.
Thanks to a paint additive (INSULADD®) discovered by ABIL’s Glendale Home Mod Coordinator Jon DeWinter, (on the internet), a consumer will be enjoying much cooler temperatures this summer. The consumer had bought a mobile home that had an addition built on the side that was made into a living room. The roof of this addition was just an aluminum awning with no insulation. Last year, due to the radiant heat from the awning, the temperature inside the home would reach 110 degrees and the temperature in the addition would reach 130 degrees.
The paint additive, with a two-coat application, insulates the awning to an R-22 rating.The home modification project proved very successful in that soon after the coating, when the outside temperature was 86 the inside temperature was 70. The project was completed in coordination with ABIL, Glendale’s Community Volunteer Program and “Christmas in April. ABIL’S Jon DeWinter, found the additive, “Christmas in April” bought the additive and supplied the paint, and Glendale”s Volunteer Program supplied the labor through the Probation office.
A more recent check on the home found that when the outside temperature hit 110, the home inside stayed around 85 degrees. We are sure that this process will make it more livable for the consumer this summer. COOL!
After this article appeard, I have had four calls on your additive. I have refered them to your web site. I hope that is ok.
If you have any questions about our organization you can call me at (602) 296-0537 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your wonderful product. When I build myself another home I am definitely going to use your INSULADD®!
Dear Mrs. Méndez:
After we applied Insuladd on the walls of our Hormigueros Supermarket, we did turn off four (4) air conditioners (A/C) units. They were not longer necessary to maintain the cool temperature. This represents a monthly saving of approximately five thousand ($5,000.00) dollars on our electric bill.

Just a quick note to let you know how pleased we are with the results of our Insuladd roof coating project. I own the Hose Guys which is a hydraulic hose sales and service company. Our 5,000 square foot shop is use about half for service operations and half for warehouse storage. Even before Larry Haines told me the before and after temperature numbers I could tell that the coating made a significant difference. Previously the inside of the building would be much hotter than the ambient outside temperature even on a mild sunny day and you could feel the heat radiating from the inside ceiling. After the coating was applied it was obcvious that there was much less heat radiating down from the ceiling.
I also noticed that coming in early on a Monday morning, the building was not near as hot as it would have been in the past after being locked up for two days of constant sunshine. Needless to say our technicians who work in the shop are happy with the improved working conditions and the prospect of the heat of summer not impacting them so dramatically as in the past. I belong to several business organizations and will be hosting events at our shop that will include local building owners who can see the results of using your product. Thanks again for your cooperation and please feel free to contact me if there are any questions.

COMMERCIAL APPLICATION: Louisiana
Louisiana, USA – April 2011
Testimonial from us, the contractors:
“The elastomeric roof coating was easy to apply. I had the men apply the material with rollers after power washing the roof. The first coat of the 5,000 sq. ft. roof went on in about 8 hours and that included prep time to set up the ladders and move the material and equipment onto the roof. The second coat went on in about 6 hours and the men found no difference in applying the roof coating using rollers than painting a normal house or commercial building. The customer was extremely happy and the job went just like clockwork.”

“David. You will be pleased to know that the container which was painted white and used Insuladd on both the interior and exterior has been used in earnest in Oman as a fully functioning mobile workshop. The container was definitely cooler than neighboring white containers by quite a few degrees. Coupled with the use of an air conditioning unit, a very easy working environment. When the outside temperature was in the mid 30′s. (Celsius) Next stop Qingdao, China. Where it could be snowing.”

Whilst I have been in the trade for 50 years it is only in the last twelve months that I have been made aware of Insuladd. At first as with any new product I was sceptical of its potential. However following a few trials, customers have informed me that: the room is noticeably warmer, all traces of mildew have disappeared. The most outstanding success is a customer with a room extension which is two thirds single glazed glass where condensation has been a daily problem. Following an application of Insuladd the condensation has been reduced by 90%.

“I recently bought some of your product Insuladd and must say initially I’m liking what I see, I like the finish (velvety) and using it as a undercoat and gloss on very rough woodwork it seems to be very durable and is so far holding excellently and looking good; My advise here is don’t lay off the paint to much as it dries, this tends to pull it off. Using it as an exterior emulsion (in white) makes it seem very bright indeed that sounds crazy I know but it does; My advice here is keep stirring the paint and apply quick as you can. I have two pouches left which I have 2 bathrooms to paint to try and cut down mildew, I shall be using a roller and will let you know the outcome as and when. I also have other jobs lined up with people who have seen the results so far, and like what they see who will be contacting you soon for your Insuladd product. They will be requiring it’s insulating properties as their priority, again I will be in touch.”
Mr R – Seaford
“I have received my Insuladd, I have heard it is very good and purchased it based on a recommendation from a friend who has had similar problems with condensation/mould. They couldn’t praise it enough. I found the ordering process very simple and I received the package very promptly. Overall I am very satisfied, thank you.”
Ms. H – Melton Mowbray
“I am writing to thank you for the supply of the Insuladd pouch I bought from you three months ago. We mixed the Insuladd into 5 litres of Dulux Brilliant White Silk finish emulsion paint. We applied two coats of this mix by roller and brush to the four walls and the ceiling of our home office. The application was easy and the resultant finish which is best described as a very slight texture looks very good indeed.
Have we seen any thermal benefits. Yes, I think we have. So much so that my husband has been checking with a thermometer over the last three months for any measurable effect. The office appears to be between 1.5 and 2.0C warmer than any other room in the house. We have not yet switched our heating on for the winter season, the only source of heat in the office is the PC which it would appear is keeping the temp up. Even in the morning when the PC has been off all night with the door shut, the office is generally 1.0 – 1.5C warmer than any other room in the house.
We are very encouraged by this and will be decorating the rest of the house over the next 12 months. We will be back in touch for some more Insuladd.”
Mrs. H – Stoke-on-Trent
“I have used Insuladd on various applications around the home and work place and found it worked well especially in the Bathroom area of a property recently. It does seem to make a real difference in overall ambient temperature of rooms. It does finish to a slightly suede texture on the walls but personally I find this gives an overall better appearance than gloss sheen. I recently obtained a mixing attachment for my drill and found this helps greatly with the mixing process, turns a 5 minute job into a 2 min job. Thanks for an excellent product and service. Feel free to publish my views on your web page it may help people find the benefits I obtained.

“Cafe’ Mokambo, Italia, which is the Italian Cafe’ Factory has started to put RBC and Energy Coat on the roof of the plant. In the section already painted they effectively feel a comfortable freshness inside (they are located near Pescara, a sea city with a climate very hotter than L’Aquila) and they are happy to add their name in the list of the good feedbacks.”
I visited the site today (storage facility) and did some testing with a infrared thermometer. When I opened the door of unit 508.I hit the roof deck with a digital laser infrared thermometer and the temperature of the deck in unit 508, the treated unit, and the temperaturewas 101 deg.I did the same in unit 511, the untreated unit and thedecks temperature was 136deg. That’s a significant difference.The temperature of the treat door was115 deg,The untreated unit’s door was 138 deg.The block work on the treated unit was101 deg and the untreated units block was 116 deg. I also installed a digital thermometer in each of the unitsand the treated unit was running approximately 10 to 12 degrees lower than the untreated unit.We checked the temp in the units at approximately 3:30 PM and the treatedunit’s temp was 121 deg and the untreated unit was 131 deg. Itwould seem to me that if the whole roof was treated that the interior temperature would be dropped by 35 degs or close to that.The client is coming out tomorrow but I think they are going to be impressed, I will keep you informed.
I recently published a book entitled Green Home Improvement, which contains 65 projects homeowners can do to green their homes, including projects to boost energy efficiency. In that book, I included a project on insulating paint additives. We included a photo of Insuladd, which my photo researcher took. (It’s now posted on your web site, I believe.)
I painted my living room walls and ceiling and my front entry way with your product and have noticed a remarkable difference in the way the room retains heat when the wood stove is operating. I also ran a test of Insuladd’s effectiveness, which I’ve attached to this e-mail. The graph is the result of a study a student and I performed. (It was her science project in 8th grade.) We painted the insides of two large identical cardboard boxes, one with an environmentally friendly wall paint containing Insuladd, the other with an environmentally friendly wall paint without Insuladd. We then placed 100-watt light bulbs in each box along with a temperature sensor, then sealed the boxes and plotted temperature every three minutes for 45 minutes. She ran the experiment 20 times, so each data point represents the average of 20 trials.
As you can see, the box painted with Insuladd reached a higher temperature — it was about 15 degrees F higher than the box painted without Insuladd. I thought you might be interested in seeing the results.
Back to the reason I’m writing, I would like to rewrite the chapter on insulating paint additives and submit it with our data and some of yours to Home Power magazine for publication. I was wondering if you have high-resolution images of the infrared photos on your web site and perhaps other images that show the effectiveness of Insuladd that I could submit with this article? The photos on your web site provide very compelling demonstration of Insuladd’s effectiveness.
Thanks for your assistance.
