Ceramic microspheres serve as an energy saving, weather-proofing barrier for a diverse range of surfaces
INSULATION AGAINST HEAT, COLD AND WATER
Sketch Thermo-Shield® offers a full line of premium quality “GREEN” non-hazardous, water based, energy saving, protective paint & coatings designed for a wide range of Architectural, Industrial, Commercial, Residential. Sketch Thermo-Shield® is an acrylic emulsion with ceramic microspheres that serves as an energy saving, weather-proof barrier for a diverse range of surfaces including, but not limited to, metal tanks, cement walls, roofing, decks, stucco homes, exterior aluminum coatings , vinyl, concrete and eaves.
SKETCH THERMO-SHIELD® ADVANTAGES
LOWER ENERGY COSTS: Sketch Thermo-Shield® reflective, refractive and conductive properties serve to lower energy costs in all types of climates. When properly applied, the coatings can reduce heating and cooling costs by as much as 40%.
STANDS UP TO ALL TYPES OF WEATHER: The flexible coating stands up to all types of weather, including snow, wind, and hail.
VARIABLE PERMEABILITY: Sketch Thermo-Shield® exterior coatings provide “variable permeability.” This means that the coating becomes watertight when it is saturated, but it allows the pores to open when dry so that water can evaporate easily off the surface.
FIRE RESISTANT: In addition to being water resistant, the coatings are also fire resistant. Underwriters Laboratories (UL) has certified Thermo-Shield® Roof Coating as Class A Fire Resistant. (ANSI/UL 790, CAN/ULC-S107)
SOUNDPROOFING PROPERTIES: Sketch Thermo-Shield® has soundproofing properties because it reflects sounds back at their source instead of allowing them to pass through the coated surface.

ROOF COAT – STANDARD
Sketch Thermo-Shield® Roof Coat is a highly efficient, energy saving, flexible coating, made from a water-based pure acrylic resin system filled with vacuumed sodium borosilicate ceramic micro spheres. Sketch Thermo-Shield® Roof Coat greatly reduces thermal shock and heat penetration by keeping roof surfaces much cooler in hot summer weather.
ROOF COAT – TROPICAL
Sketch Thermo-Shield® Tropical formula is used in climatic conditions where fungi growth is a major concern. It is also a highly efficient, energy-saving, flexible coating, made from a water-based pure acrylic resin system filled with vacuumed sodium borosilicate ceramic micro spheres. Sketch Thermo-Shield® Tropical Roof Coat greatly reduces thermal shock and heat penetration by keeping roof surfaces much cooler in hot summer weather.
ROOF COAT – UL CLASS A
Sketch Thermo-Shield® UL Class A formula is used on projects where shear extra-high fire resistance is desired. Sketch Thermo-Shield® UL Class A greatly reduces thermal shock and heat penetration by keeping roof surfaces much cooler in hot summer weather while maintaining all the benefits of the other Sketch Thermo-Shield® Roof Coat products. The Sketch Thermo-Shield® UL Class A has been certified by Underwriters Limited according to these safety standards: ANSI/UL 790 and CAN/ULC-S107.

Sketch Thermo-Shield® Clear Coat is a tough acrylic coating designed to seal, preserve, protect and rejuvenate a variety of substrates. As a result of its low viscosity and microscopic penetrating properties, Sketch Thermo-Shield® Clear Coat locks into the substrate to produce a water-repellency barrier. Additional chemical agents are added to resist mold, mildew and fungus growth.
INTERIOR WALL COAT
Sketch Thermo-Shield® Interior Wall Coats are highly efficient, flexible coatings, designed to waterproof your walls. They are non-toxic, friendly to the environment, and form a monolithic (seamless) membrane that bridges hairline cracks. They are completely washable and resist many harsh chemicals and dirt pick-up. These water-based coatings are made from an acrylic resin system filled with vacuumed ceramic micro spheres that acts as a thermally efficient blanket.
EXTERIOR WALL COATS
Sketch Thermo-Shield® Exterior Wall Coats put a stop to the “frequent painting cycle” – they outlast other paints several times over. They have superb waterproofing performance, fire resistance and their adhesion increases with saturation. These coatings have “Variable Permeability” – they become watertight when saturated by water, and breathe away trapped water vapor when dry. They protect against UV, greatly reduce thermal shock and sound transmission, and have low VOC levels. These coatings come in a variety of architectural colors and leave a beautiful matt finish.
WOOD AND DECK COAT
Sketch Thermo-Shield® Wood & Deck Coat has been tested for UV and moisture resistance under ASTM. This water-based sealer contains the finest resins available to provide a long lasting finish and to outperform conventional sealers. Rain and sun attack unprotected exterior wood surfaces resulting in costly damage to your wood surfaces. Water soaks deep into exterior surfaces causing them to expand. The heat of the sun pulls moisture out of these surfaces leaving them dry and brittle. This on-going cycle of expansion and contraction causes wood to swell, crack and splinter.
Sketch Thermo-Shield® Tank Shield is a highly efficient, energy-saving, flexible coating, designed to protect and lower the external surface temperature of storage vessels. This water-based coating is made from an acrylic resin system filled with vacuumed ceramic micro spheres that acts as a thermally efficient blanket. Sketch Thermo-Shield® Tank Shield has superb fire resistance – it is grade Class A by UL Standards.
