CCHRC members and sponsors provide vital, sustaining support for our mission to promote and advance healthy, durable, and sustainable shelter for cold climates. Donations help fuel many projects, including sustainable prototype houses in rural Alaska, renewable energy tests, and the production of educational videos, publications and multimedia. Your contribution to CCHRC makes change happen by providing valuable support to our research efforts.
CCHRC evaluated two coating products, Nansulate® Home Protect Clear Coat and Super Therm®, to determine whether they contribute insulating properties to the building envelope when applied as an interior coating. Each coating was tested to determine whether it fits the definition of a radiant barrier, changes the R-value of material, or reduces heating demand within an insulated miniature structure.
