Reduce Heat Load caused by Solar Radiation

This is a metal building that is being used as a warehouse.  The building gets uncomfortably warm when the sun heats up the medal and radiates into the building.  During a remodel a 40 mil application of CIC Heat block was installed.  The first coat was a tack coat of 12 mil, the second coat was 20 mil and the final coat was will be 8 to 10 mil.  40 mil is 1 mm or about the thickness of a quarter.

CIC Heat Block was applied with a Graco Gmax II 5900 Gas Airless Paint Sprayer using a 624 tip for the first 2 coats and 621 tip for the final coat.  The metal beams were sprayed to create a continous membrane and prevent thermal bridging. It was easily sprayed in irregular areas.
