Developed by NASA to protect buildings located in close proximity to launch sites:
Insuladd can be mixed into cement, stucco coating, adobe mix and interior or exterior oil or latex paints. It is inert and non-reactive, so there is no smell or dust when it’s poured for mixing. And, it is made largely from recycled materials. The main component of the insulating additive is fly ash, a byproduct of coal-fired electric generating plants.
It can be used for interior or exterior applications and is considered safe, non-toxic and environmentally friendly. It is the only paint insulating additive endorsed by NASA. Actually, a company called Hy-Tech Thermal Solutions, a 2003 NASA Technology Spinoff Company, is the original.
Here’s a little background about the product direct from the Hy-Tech and here’s how it originated with NASA.
Thanks for the tip from Amanda!
It’s been featured in Extreme How-To Magazine and on HGTV.
Two coats applied to a wall will increase the R-value by over 50% or applied as a house paint will increase the R-value by 38%.
This will reduce your heating and cooling bill by over 20%.
It will only set you back about 6 cents per square foot. In other words, it should pay for itself in no time flat (a little paint humor).

I started as a home-stalker… visiting brand new homes under construction in the neighborhoods near my house. That inspired me to write about home building and home renovation projects — chronicling homes during different phases of construction from a consumer's point-of-view. Basically, the tips you'll find in my articles are a collection of checklists for what I think should (and should not) go into building or remodeling a quality home.
