  1. What became of that paint additive that insulates with silica bubbles, -do you know the stuff I'm referring to? It was a small packet or container of sand-like stuff, glass-like more likely, -that is hollow. When a few dry ounces are mixed with interior housepaint and applied, these 'beads' float to the surface and the hollow-ness (air chambers) retain heat/cooling. I think the percent of heat/cooling saving was fairly small (maybe 20%??) and adding this stuff makes the paint only slightly less 'glossy' due to it being well, -fine sand.
    A few years ago this was all the talk. Now, -nobody seems to remember anything of it...

    Nice blog, enjoyed.

    1. Sure there is this one company that claims to save you up to 50% in energy bills called Kool Coat they call them ceramic microspheres or glass bubbles that you mix into your paint. Its supposed to insulate heat as well as sound if applied correctly, I have never tried it myself but it does sound interesting thanks for posting.

  2. Wouldn't the coatings with ceramic already in the material do the same or is it the fact that these are actually micro bubbles (tiny air pockets) that reflect the temp and sound proof.I'm not familiar with this product.

    1. I believe its the air pockets that actually work to insulate the coating acting as a protective barrier from temp and sound.
