A manufacturer of road repair equipment had a problem: his infrared heater used to warm pot hole patches and surrounding road surface was not putting out enough heat. He had two solutions, he could either enlarge the infrared burners used as the heat source (using more propane at an added cost) or increase the reflectivity in the shields behind the burners to direct more heat towards the pavement. By applying LO/MIT radiant barrier coating to the shields, he solved his problem with very little additional cost (pennies per square foot) and increased the efficiency of his units because the BTU output of the heaters was now directed at the target road patches.
Whether you need to enhance or block infrared heat flows, our Lo/Mit low emissivity paint products perform over wide temperature ranges and operating conditions from the inside of engine compartments and roofs of hockey arenas to the coating of steam boilers and rocket ships. They can be easily applied to any geometric shape and on most substrates to alleviate radiant heat transfer problems at low cost and extremely low weight.
