Roof Coatings Help Keep NASA Rocket Cool

Friday, December 4, 2009

Ares I-X rocket launch

National Coatings Corp., a manufacturer of reflective roof coatings, says its AcrylShield and RustShield coatings products played a part in a recent NASA test flight of the Ares I-X rocket. The coatings were applied to provide reflective and protective properties in the successful test flight on Oct. 28 at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

The company says the products—typically used in roof-coating applications—were used by NASA engineers based on the coatings’ ability to provide a shield against rust and to reflect sunlight and UV radiation, helping to protect the rocket’s essential components from overheating. The RustShield coating, a metal primer, was applied to the entire exterior metal skin of the rocket, followed by the AcrylShield reflective topcoat.

“We are very proud to be part of this successful rocket launch,” said Matt Kolb, National Coatings president. “Not many companies get to participate in space endeavors and contribute to NASA's success.”

National Coatings, based in Camarillo, CA, is a manufacturer of high-performance elastomeric roof, wall-coating, and insulation products. The company is a charter member of the Cool Roof Rating Council and the ENERGY STAR® Roof Products group, a founding member of the Reflective Roof Coating Institute (RRCI), and was twice recognized as ENERGY STAR Roof Products Partner of the Year. The company’s brands include AcryShield®, AcryPly®, AcryGuard®, AcryPly-D™, and AcryFlex®.
