Low-cost, highly effective, safe/non-toxic coating and paints would create useful thermal reflectance.

A powder was created additive made up of microscopic, inert gas-filled, ceramic microspheres that can be mixed into ordinary interior or exterior paint that, after drying, forms a radiant heat barrier that acts like a layer of insulation.

The product works with all types of paints and coatings and is being applied to feed storage silos to help prevent feed spoilage, poultry hatcheries to help moderate temperature, and on military vehicles, ships and planes. It is also availabe for home use.
