Heat Insulation Paint HIP AERO
- Feature HIP AERO is a heat insulation coating in which aerogel featuring superb heat resistance as a solid is formed into a coating material.
- Feature Because HIP AERO is a coating material, it can be coated thoroughly on detailed sections and even on complicated profiles, thereby ensuring heat insulation.
- Feature Because HIP AERO is a coating material, it makes it easier to perform equipment maintenance.
■4 effects to be expected
■ Thermal insulation properties of HIP AERO ①
Low heat conductivity of approximately 45 mW/m・K is achieved.
■What is Aerogel?
Aerogel is made from silica, which has low heat conductivity, and 95% of the total is super porous fine structure. Because the micropore diameter of the super porous fine structure is smaller than the mean free path of air, aerogel suppresses the heat conductivity by convection and realizes a totally new heat insulation. It is the most advanced material that is even applied in space development by NASA.
■ Thermal insulation properties of HIP AERO ②
Dual heat insulation mechanism in only HIP AERO
Heat transfer is suppressed by aerogel and heat release is limited by heat cut silver’s low-emissivity,
■ Thermal insulation properties of HIP AERO ③
It improves the working environment by suppressing the emission amount.
Apply HIP AERO to metal cans’ surface, put 80 deg. C hot water in and take picture by thermograph in 5 Min.
AERO suppresses the surface radiation through its low-emissivity.

■ Because HIP AERO is a coating material, it can be coated thoroughly on detailed sections and even on complicated profiles, thereby ensuring heat insulation.
Example ① Nonferrous metals manufacturing company
In preparation for the electricity bill increase scheduled next year, we thought performing thermal insulation of the furnace would be a useful energy-saving measure.
Taking the above into consideration, we examined wrapping the furnace with heat-insulation materials, but we abandoned this method because the space between the furnace and walls was too narrow. With a coating material, however, we could apply the heat insulation even in narrow spaces.
As a result, we achieved energy saving and the thermal insulation brought about the additional benefit of stabilizing the temperature inside the furnace so the product quality could be enhanced.
【Result】Furnace surface temperature 53℃→46℃
20% reduction of electricity bill compared to before coating the product
Example② Automobile-related company
The workplace near the furnace had become very hot due to the heat generated by the furnace. We examined wrapping the furnace with heat-insulation materials to improve the working environment, but we could not wrap the materials because the pipes around the furnace were in the way.
With a coating material, however, we could execute the work while avoiding the pipes. We could actually feel that the temperature around the furnace was obviously reduced compared to before.
【Result】Furnace surface temperature 74℃→71℃
Reduction in sensory temperatures of workers
■ Because HIP AERO is a coating material, it makes it easier to perform equipment maintenance.
Example③ Public relations
The area surrounding the incineration furnace was hot, so we wrapped thermal insulation materials around the furnace as a heat-insulation measure. However, due to the deterioration of the thermal insulation materials over time, we had to reapply them on a regular basis.
We were concerned about the substantial cost needed for each application, and we found that we could reduce the cost by using a coating material instead. Furthermore, the furnace no longer needs to be concealed, so we can visually confirm its condition. The product is also helpful for management.
