Space Certification Program Welcomes New Partner

The Space Foundation is pleased to welcome a new Certified Space Technology partner, GBS/KWIK Company, manufacturer and distributor of Heatshield-R20 Radiant Barrier Paint Mix.

Heatshield-R20 uses hollow reflectospheres in a powder that can be mixed into virtually any paint to create a protective heat-blocking radiant barrier. Originally developed as a spray-on insulation to protect space shuttle components, the process involved a dangerous mix of chemicals and a narrow application window. GBS/KWIK Company's Heatshield-R20 provides an economical and safe spinoff to this proven space technology, which effectively reduces heating and cooling costs by reflecting heat away from any painted surface.

The Space Certification program was created by the Space Foundation, in cooperation with NASA, to raise awareness and understanding about space and the significant and practical benefits of technologies originally developed for the space program, which have been adapted into products and services that improve life on Earth.
