How To - ATTIC or BRICK WALL
Nansulate® HomeProtect Clear Coat can be easily applied to your attic or walls to insulate and reduce heat transfer.
Step 1: Clean the walls with a mild water/detergent, and allow to dry thoroughly. If coating exterior brick, you may power wash to clean, and allow to dry thoroughly.
Step 2. Apply the first coat of Nansulate® with a brush, roller, or paint sprayer, at a thickness of 4 mils (about the same as a typical paint coat). The coating should stay clear as it is going on.
Allow to dry to touch - approximately 1-2 hours.
Step 3: Apply second coat; allow to dry to touch, and apply third coat.
Important Tips: If applying outside, make sure the weather is not dropping below freezing for the first 30 days after application, and that it does not get rained on within the first 72 hours after application.
Nansulate® has a clear coat finish that can be used over existing paint, brick or wood, and can also be painted over with a colored paint if desired.

Our Nansulate® Crystal website has been getting it's own "crystal beautiful" update lately, and includes a brand new customer testimonial. Nansulate® Crystal has inspired customers around the nation to take a serious look at reducing their energy efficiency while improving the beauty of their home at the same time.
My neighbors thought I had new tiles put on.... My total monthly energy cost is down a minimum of 17% to a maximum of 42% year over year!!! I did not expect that much. Prior to having the coating applied, I had one section of my roof, that receives little to no sunlight, and it needed to be power washed with diluted bleach once or twice each year due to heavy mildew and mold. Now there is none, and that section looks just like the rest of the roof.
Nansulate exceeded my expectations!"
