nC® ProTherm dB-X thermal insulating coating
Based on sol-gel nanotechnology, the nC® ProTherm dB-X coating system is designed for thermal and acoustic insulation, as well as fire retardancy. dB-X has a long lasting lifetime cycle of more than 15 years outdoors, and life-long expectancy indoors.
Because of the ability to insulate with a very thin layer of coating, nC® ProTherm dB-X offers space saving and cost reducing protection at a high degree of thermal insulation. Thermal conductivity λ10 mW/(m·K) 56 and Thermal resistance R10 m2K/W 0.2409 at 10mm, at a lightweight density of 350 gr/m³.
Limiting the transmission of sound from one area to another requires material that encloses the source of the noise and forms a barrier that absorbs vibrations between the source and the adjacent areas. There are two different types of sound: airborne and impact. Airborne noises come from voices, machines, etc. Impact noise includes vibrations from machines, exhausts, your washer and dryer or rotating propellers from other ships conveyed through the water to our hull. nC® ProTherm dB-X reduces both airborne and impact noises. If your walls and hull are properly insulated, you’d probably be surprised at how much quieter noises from your neighbor or outside seem!
nC® ProTherm dB-X is suitable for application on metal, synthetics, brick, concrete and wood. Apply dB-X preferably with airgun. For a rougher surface use brush, roller or knife. It shows a stucco-like, relief finish. Apply nC® ProTherm dB-X in one layer, between 5mm up to 12 mm. It is available in all colours and allows painting over.
