How R-Value impacts insulating coatings

R-Value is an important measurement when installing insulation. But, when it comes to coatings, R-Value shouldn’t really come up too much. The more important value for coatings is actually thermal conductivity or k-value. In this episode, we’ll discuss the difference between the two and why thermal conductivity is important, especially when specifying or applying a thermal insulating coating.

Aerolon Sensor in Manufacturing Facility

The best way to determine whether or not insulating coatings are necessary in your facility is to monitor your environment. One popular option is to monitor your environmental measurements using a smart sensor, which can be wirelessly installed almost anywhere. Using one of these sensors – which is easily mounted via magnet or adhesive inside your facility – will provide you with the exact temperature and humidity data required to create an accurate model of how much insulating material you'll need to combat your issue.
