E1269 Standard Test Method for Determining Specific Heat Capacity by Differential Scanning Calorimetry
E1461 Standard Test Method for Thermal Diffusivity by the Flash Method

ASTM tests E1269 & E1461 document the reduction in the amount of heat being absorbed per hour, per square foot, per degree Fahrenheit. As noted in Table 4 (bare steel) and Table 5 (SuperTherm coated) the thermal absorptance was reduced from over 350+ BTU/hr/ft2/F down to 4 BTU/hr/ft2/F. This reduction in heat being absorbed is independent of the substrate to which it is applied. In other words the amount of heat that SuperTherm® Multi ~ Ceramic Thermal Barrier Coating absorbs is the same 4 Btu’s whether it is applied to metal, wood, concrete, gypsum wallboard, fibreglass, foam or any other substrate. 4 BTU’s is all that is available to conduct and transfer.
