Excellent results can be seen when Invisaflects® Technology. This technology has even been used by the U.S. Military. If people who defend our country use the Technology in Invisaflects®, just think how well it will defend your home or business from the elements.

The results of a test on reducing radiant energy and heat at a United States rocket launching range were conclusive, “Invisaflects® Technology had lower temperatures during the test.” The test proved that Invisaflects® Technology helps keeps heat out “at every location”!
Invisaflects® Technology not only works with lighter colors , it works well even with dark colors in some of the most extreme and hostile environments.

Below are some results of the test conducted on the effectiveness of Invisaflects® Technology that was used at the rocket launching facility. It’s clear that Invisaflects® Technology stands up to the most intense rigors of military stresses. It can easily protect your home from any challenges from the elements. Look at the test results conducted by the Climatic Test Branch of the Environmental Test Division and see for yourself. Even rocket scientists agree; Invisaflects® Technology makes a difference.

Test Data

1. Solar radiation tests were conducted by Climatic Test Branch (CTB) at Building 7290 from September 29, to October 6, 1999. These tests were conducted to determine the effectiveness of a paint additive applied to the cab section of the launcher.

2. High cab temperatures have been experienced during days with bright sunlight or high solar irradiance; the cab is not air-conditioned. Invisaflects® Technology  increases the resistance to heat transfer on the surface it’s applied to; the improvement being primarily to reduce the effects of radiant energy.

Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS)

3. The launcher is too large for this chamber to conduct a standard MIL-STD-810 solar radiation test. However, the objective was to determine the effectiveness of the technology on the cab area. To accomplish the objective two launchers were subjected to identical solar loading over a two day period. Launcher, S/N 4AA00481, had been painted using Invisaflects® Technology and launcher, S/N 4AA00222, was not.

Note: The irradiance level in the solar chamber is normally varied by raising and lowering the light bank. This was not possible because of the height of the launcher. With the light bank at its highest point, the lights were only 30 inches above the cab!

4. For the first day the launchers were in the operational configuration with the blast shields in place and were exposed to a MIL-STD-810 daily solar radiation cycle. On the second day the blast shields were lowered and windows opened and the launchers were exposed to three hours of maximum solar radiation. Thermocouples were placed on the outside and inside of the cab in various locations, see enclosed photographs. The enclosed plots are arranged to compare the temperatures during the test at the following locations:

Commanders side overhead
Drivers side overhead
Air in the cab

5. At every location monitored the cab painted with Invisaflects® Technology had lower temperatures during the test. On the first day temperatures in the cab peaked at 131.7 F in the launcher with the paint additive and 137.8 F for the other launcher. On the second day the cab temperature peaked at 97.7 F and 100.5 F.

End of Report

These last temperatures reflect the fact that the air temperature outside and inside the cab was almost the same due to the fact that the blast shields were lowered and the windows were open.

SUMMARY: The launchers almost completely filled the solar chambers. It is believed that much more dramatic results would show from the use of ®if the chamber was larger or if the tests was conducted in a natural outdoor environment.

If Invisaflects® Technology works this well in a dark colored paint in an extremely hostile environment, just imagine how well it works with lighter colored paints and in a normal environment!
