Today, Ama Nanotech extends its range of Building & Construction solutions with the THERMOGEL PAINT line of thermoreflective paints containing Aerogel and other precious nanotechnological components, without glass or ceramic microspheres. Formulated using advanced technologies, thermoreflective paints avoid the dispersion of energy through walls, drastically reducing thermal bridges and preventing the growth of mould without using chemical additives. By using this type of paint with a double function – both as a surface finish and to enhance energy-saving properties – building shells become elements that play an active part in limiting the energy consumption of the entire building, with the added advantage of significant reductions in application times, with the consequence of even further savings. In addition to guaranteeing longer duration (for example on wall coatings) on the surfaces to which they are applied, these special polymer-based paints with special additives reduce the temperatures of these surfaces both externally and internally, permitting energy savings in building climate control, a strategic element in policies for the limitation of energy consumption in a country like Italy characterized by summers that get hotter every year. Reducing interior building temperatures by just one degree means reducing energy consumption by 8 -10%, avoiding the emission into the atmosphere of 470 kg of CO2 every year.
