Using ceramic particles (Ceramic Microspheres) with a diameter of a few millimetres, NASA engineers managed to make the Space Shuttle withstand temperature fluctuations of more than 2.000 °C. This pioneering discovery that remained firmly attached to its foundation despite accelerations to speeds an order of magnitude higher than the speed of sound, has been used up to this day as a protective shield of the spaceship. In combination with an extremely tangible binder, a ‘liquid ceramic plate’ was born.
After adjustment for civil use, the thermo-ceramic coating was further developed and improved with other important properties for use in construction and residential construction.
The colour-like substance is a thermo-ceramic coating, which today represents a system of energy-saving and long-lasting protection. Learn more about IR coating here.
