Zenova IP Frying Pan Ice Demo

Video Description

This demonstration clearly shows some of the properties at work when coating a substrate with our proprietary Zenova IP Insulation Paint. In this demonstration we show how the extremely low thermal conductivity of Zenova IP (which has been independently measured to be 0.069 W/mK) provides a thermal barrier which blocks the heat from being transferred from the stove through the highly conductive frying pan to the ice cube.

As you can see in the video, the ice cubes on the left side of the frying pan, which has been treated with Zenova IP, do not melt even when the substrate is extremely hot. The ice cubes on the right side of the frying pan melt very quickly, as you would expect, and actually start to boil when melted, which causes steam that has a slight effect on the ice cubes on the left side, causing them to start to melt. This is not due to the heat being transferred through the Zenova IP Insulation Paint, but the heat from the steam and the heat conducted through the right side of the pan which is untreated.


Since thermal heat is transferred in 3 ways; by conduction, convection and radiation, this demonstration shows just one of the several benefits of applying Zenova IP to any substrate.

Zenova IP Overview

ZENOVA IP thermal insulating paint embeds the most modern insulating technology in a thermos-like ultra-thin layer.

ZENOVA IP saves energy by increasing the thermal insulation level in commercial and residential buildings. Solar heat can increase the temperature within a building by 75% to 90%.

ZENOVA IP has been independently tested and validated to deflect, absorb and dissipate up to 75% of this heat, thereby reducing the inside temperature by up to 45%!

Suitable for both exterior and interior, on any type of surface.
