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 paints for interior and exterior walls, ceilings, metal, and more.

Our range of thermal and insulating paints provide improved insulation and thermal efficiency to building substrates. They are safe, easy to use, and are made to the highest standards. Extensive research and development, and a combination of the latest micro technology helps develop energy-saving and protective, decorative and functional paints and coatings for interior and external uses. All the thermal paint we offer is manufactured to original formulations that have been tested at world leading laboratories and government bodies for a variety of applications. These include UKAS approved Salford University and GEO Sciences in America.
Thermilate’s thermal paints can provide excellent services for industrial environments, including:
• Lower energy bills
• Improve climate controlled conditions in industrial environments
• Food processing plants
• Chemical refining facilities
• Textile plants
• Paper mills
• Sugar mills
• Storage tanks
• Transfer pipelines
• Provide anti-condensation qualities
• Act as a thermal protection barrier in marine environments
The process label of Thermilate’s product range depends on user requirements. 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.
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 themselves that these coatings from Thermilate use, to add to other paints, coatings and emulsions.
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.
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.
Thermal insulation paint by Thermilate will 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 from Thermilate – 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).
Thermilate thermal 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.
Successful application and results from using Thermilate insulation and thermal coatings will depend on surface condition and what the underlying substrate is. Heat transfer through exterior building substrates in summer months will differ from heat transfer from internal wall building materials from steam and laundry rooms through to adjacent public areas.
Thermilate’s thermally reflective coatings can be used internally and externally to provide all-year-round climate control in work environments such as computer suites, electrical component handling plants, science and pharmaceutical facilities, and food processing plants. By reflecting heat externally outwards and internally inwards, these coatings can restrict heat transfer or migration, allowing for improved manual climate control in sensitive areas.
