Emisshield, Inc.

Emisshield, Inc. located in Blacksburg, VA was found in 1999. As a privately held company, Emisshield® holds several patents related to their unique product lines. Emisshield® is a thin coating, ceramic nanoparticle material with high emissivity and heat re-radiation capabilities. The core technology of Emisshield® was originally developed by NASA to be used as the heat shield for the X-33 and X-34 Space Planes. After a license for the technology was secured from NASA, reformulations and new patents, combined with extensive research and development, resulted in more than 30 Emisshield® products ready for sale in today’s market.

Emisshield® products optimize heat and cooling applications by changing basic system physics and enabling positive improvements in any combustion or energy transfer.  Emisshield® is water based, easy to apply, “green” product, that has no VOC’s, it lessens noxious air emissions from combustion processes and lasts in heat applications at continuous temperatures of 3000˚ F.  The coatings maintain a constant emissivity rating of .8 to .95 through all temperature extremes. This technology can be used on existing or new materials utilized in all combustion processes including metals, refractory, ceramics and high technology fabrics including Trizar® which is marketed and distributed by Clean Textile Technology. The optimization provided by Emisshield® can provide significant improvement in most energy consuming, producing, or related heat systems. Emisshield® also manipulates and re-radiates heat and is used in cooling applications as well to emit heat off of heat producing products, electrical conductive equipment, transformers and other heat producing equipment that needs the temperatures lowered to be more efficient.

Emisshield® performance characteristics:

  • Production increase and reduced downtime for maintenance procedures

  • An increase in energy savings for furnace applications

  • More uniform heating

  • Prolonged substrate life through abrasive resistant surfaces

  • Improved air emissions from industrial processes

  • Improved cooling characteristics for quality applications

  • Adheres to metals, ceramics, fiber, and refractory brick under constant high temperatures up to 3000˚
