A: Absolutely! Adding Insuladd® insulating paint to the interior walls of your home will help stop heat loss to the outside and keep you comfortable in your home.

Q: What kind of paint should I use?
A: Insuladd® is an insulating paint additive. It's a powder that can be mixed with all interior and exterior paint. Adding Insuladd® is the best thing you can do to increase the insulating value for any brand of paint. Insuladd® makes all paint brands become part of the insulation system for your home.

Q: How many coats of paint should I apply?
A: For best results, only 2 coats of paint with Insuladd® in each coat is recommended. Insuladd is such an excellent insulating barrier, anything more than 2 coats only gives a marginal increase in performance.

Q: Should I use Insuladd® both inside and outside?
A: Yes! For the optimum in energy efficiency it is best to use Insuladd® both inside and out. However, either application alone will give you increased energy efficiency which in turn drives down utility bills!

Q: Can I paint over Insuladd® at a later date?
A: Yes! However, you may want to leave Insuladd® radiant barrier exposed as long as possible because painting over it will bring a slight decrease in performance.

Q: How much Insuladd® do I need?
A: Just pour one unit of Insuladd® into one gallon of paint! There's a 5-gallon kit with five units of Insuladd® for those larger projects. You can figure on an average coverage rate of 250-300 square feet per gallon for most house paints on smooth surfaces that need an improvement with paint that insulates with Insuladd®.

Q: Can Insuladd® be sprayed?
A: Yes! But since Insuladd® is a powder additive, you simply remove all filters from your spraying equipment or the insulating additive will be strained. It's also best to use a larger than normal spray tip to allow as much Insuladd to be applied to surfaces and provide more insulation to your home. Wagner Power Rollers can also be used.

Insuladd® is a powdered paint additive that is formulated for use with interior and exterior latex house paints and improves those paints by improving the insulating value. That keeps the elements out of your home and more money in your pocket because you'll see savings in energy costs.

While Insuladd® increases insulating value for latex house paints, even after it's added it has the appearance of slightly textured normal paint.

Insuladd® is the paint additive that can save you money!
