Conserve energy with barrier coating
E-Barrier is a new radiant barrier coating from Sherwin-Williams that contains microscopic reflective particles that help keep radiant energy from transferring in or out of homes or buildings. When applied to the underside of an uncoated attic roof deck, E-Barrier is designed to reflect radiant heat before it reaches the insulation or ceiling below, so rooms stay cooler in warm weather. In colder weather, these same features contribute to a structure’s insulation properties by helping reflect existing heat back into the building.
E-Barrier can be offered by paint contractors as an additional service that will improve energy efficiency. It forms a breathable film that prevents moisture buildup and mold. It requires very little prep work or masking and no mixing. It is easy to apply with an airless sprayer, covering about 1,000 square feet per hour, with minimal overspray, no drips or runs and very low odor. Only one thin coat is necessary.
