Thermal paint insulating technology quite simply creates a thermal barrier which reflects heat once the paint or coating has dried. So, properties in hot climates save energy and money on air-conditioning bills when exterior walls and roofs are coated, because less solar heat passes through these surfaces into the buildings. Conversely, properties in cooler UK climates save energy and save money on heating bills when interior walls and ceilings are painted with our thermal and insulating paint products, because heat loss is reduced. Another important feature of our thermal paints is that condensation problems are dramatically reduced or eliminated entirely due to the special resins contained within the products.
Our range includes thermal paints for roofs, insulating and heat reflective paint for interior walls and exterior surfaces, ceilings, metal, and more.

Insulating Paint vs Thermal Paint
Insulating paint could mean keeping heat in one area, or restricting it from transferring to an adjacent room. Thermal paint too could be a term where the user needs to keep an area warm in cold climates by containing heat through internal application, or alternately keeping an area cool in hotter climates by reflecting heat through external application.
A revelation in recent years, these products need to be applied as per datasheet instructions, to avoid condensation build-up from steam and ‘trapped’ and accumulated moisture.
Thermal Insulation Paint
If you are looking for economical paints to prevent heat transfer from integral units in a factory or warehouse, or to improve heat retention within an area undergoing maintenance or unit upgrade work, thermal paint may be a great temporary or long-term solution for your requirements.
Your options include paints and coating which contain thermal paint additives, or the paint additives to add to other paints, coatings and emulsions.
What is Thermal Insulation Paint?
Thermal paint can improve heat retraction in a room thanks to paint additives that improve surface insulation. It also works like heat reflective paints by reflecting excessive heat away from an external surface or substrate, keeping indoor conditions cooler. In industrial and manufacturing plant situation, thermal insulation paints work in a third way, by preventing heat transfer from one room to a second climate controlled area. Heat gain can be a significant problem for some areas of a workplace, where heat from a processing or steam room is transferred to a heavily staffed area.
Insulation paint is applied as a thin layer coating that slows down the transfer of heat from a room out through a surface or substrate. Heat is contained in areas coated/decorated with thermal paint, and energy bills are consequently reduced. Utilising insulating paint on walls and ceilings can lead to quicker times for a room to heat up and less reliance on boilers and radiators to be constantly on. Reduce you and your company’s carbon footprint by implementing one of several heat reflective and heat insulating coatings available at Rawlins Paints.
How Does Thermal Insulation Paint Work?
Thermal insulation paint works by providing resistance to the passage of heat through a surface or substrate – stopping warmth from leaving a room.
Conventional examples of insulation products work by decreasing heat, sound or light’s movement through surfaces and substrates. Sound insulation, for example, would consist of thick, padded products hanging from or being added to surface areas to damped and stop acoustics passing through and being a cause of external noise pollution. Like sound, heat pollution can be a problem if adjoining rooms need strict temperature and climate control. For example, offices, kitchens, and packaging areas around cold storage rooms would need to prevent heat transfer from raising the temperature in the storage room and potentially ruining or spoiling stock.
Heat reflective paint for interior walls can convert interior walls and ceilings into thermal barriers, reflecting heat back into a room – externally they will reflect heat and light away from the interior areas. There is an additional option in paint additives that can be mixed with other paints and coatings (please refer to product datasheets for full instructions on how to do this, and which paint and coating finishes are best suited for this option).
Insulating paints can be used on internal and external surfaces, as well as on water tanks, hot and cold-water pipes, and more – product dependant.
