GAINA makes comfortable living possible by "balancing heat"!


Against cold Insulation/Heater

Heat can escape from the walls and ceilings even when room temperature gets high. GAINA can keep the heat's movement to a minimum and equalize the temperature throughout the house.

  Against cold 
Against heat Insulation/Interception

GAINA's ceramic beads reflect the sun's infrared rays, which makes GAINA's surface adapt to surrounding temperature and keeps heat transfer to a minimum.

  Against heat 
Against noise Soundproofing

The painted surface of GAINA is covered with many ceramic beads, which can reflect and reduce sound.

  Against noise 
Against odorAir Freshener

GAINA has electrification 0.0 quality, so it prevents dirt from sticking to surfaces. Also, the ion water in the air combines with the dirt, and prevents dirt from floating around.

  Against odor 

Heat moves from higher to lower

The ceramic bead layering technique
brings "heat equilibrium

Against Cold

Insulation/Heater

At night, the cold room is now always 10C (75F)+ even after you turn the heater off!

Paint the exterior to prevent the heat from escaping

Get inspired

Heat moves from higher to lower. With GAINA painted on the exterior, the surface adapts to the surrounding temperature and the heat balances out, resulting in minimum movement of the heat. Because of this, GAINA keeps the cold outside, and the heat inside.

Paint the interior to improve heating effect

Get inspired

Even when the temperature inside the house is high, the heat can escape if the walls and ceilings have lower temperature. With GAINA painted on the interior, the temperature of the air and surface of the wall balance out, and minimize the heat's movement.

GAINA helps improve your sensory temperature

On the left, the temperature of the air is 30oC (86oF), the temperature of the walls and ceiling surface is 10oC (50 oF), and the sensory tempearture 20oC (68 oF). On the right, with GAINA painted on the interior, even when the air temperature is the same 30oC (86oF), the walls and ceiling surface adapt to the air tempearture, which also makes the sensory temperature 30oC (86oF).

Against Heat

Insulation/ Interception

The air is not humid, and comfortable in the summer

Air conditioning effect improved when interior was painted.

Get inspired

Even when the air temperature of the room is low. If the temperature of the ceiling and walls are high, heat can get inside. When you paint GAINA inside of the room, the air conditioner's cool air and GAINA's painted surface adapt right when you turn the air conditioner on, and it keeps heat transfer to a minimum.

Sensory temperature drops when GAINA is painted in the room.

On the left, when the room temperature is 20oC (68 oF), the surface temperature - walls, ceiling - is 40oC(104oF), sensory temperature is 30oC(86oF) [(20oC (68oF)+40oC(104oF))÷2 = 30oC (86oF)] On the right, the room is painted with GAINA, the room temperature is the same 20oC (68oF) but the surface temperature - walls, ceiling - adapt to room temperature, and sensory temperature is 20oC(68oF). The difference is minus 10oC(18oF).[(20oC(68oF) + 20oC(68oF) ÷ 2= 20oC (68oF))]÷

Against Noise

Soundproofing

GAINA's special ceramic reflects sound and controls vibration

Get inspired

GAINA's membrane is made of many hard ceramic beads with air inside. The sound is repeatedly reflected by the ceramic, and absorbed by the air. Also, because of the effect of layered ceramic within the membrane, it controls vibration, and the sound that entered the membrane became quieter.

Against Odor

Air Freshener

A store with less alcohol and cigartte smells

Prevents odor and dust from floating and sticking

Get inspired

In general, dust, dirt and pollen in the air float around containing positive electric energy. And they electro-statically adhere on walls and ceilings. GAINA has electrification characteristic 0.0 it is harder for dust, dirt, and pollen to stick, and ionized moisture combines with dust, dirt, and pollen and prevents them from floating around.

Incombustibility

GAINA is certified incombustible by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, a Cabinet of Japan.


Get inspired

To ordain incombustibles by the government ordinance, there are 3 ranks of building materials to fit in the engineering standards for incombustibility: Incombustibles, Quasi-incombustibles, Fire retarding materials.
GAINA is certified as an incombustible (in Japan), the highest rating possible by Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism.

Safely

Water-based GAINA is safe. Interior GAINA received a "Four Star" grade (in Japan.)

Water-based GAINA does not contain hazardous materials such as organic solvents. Interior GAINA received Four Stars for the room air quality safety measurement.

Also, GAINA can be used as exterior paint, it cannot receive Four Star (because it is an interior rating system) but it holds the same level of safety evaluations for aldehydes and Volatile organic Compounds (VOC) as seen in the table below.

Endurance

GAINA can make buildings' last longer.

GAINA has many ceramic layers that are the strongest against ultraviolet rays, and is 2 to 3 times more durable than regular paint. Also, its insulation/thermal barrier effects restrict the building's usual expansion/contraction.

Preventing Condensation

Dew prevention

Preventing condensation by restraining the movement of heat, creates a comfortable living situation.

There are many places - ceilings, walls, windows, in the closet - in our home where condensation occurs. Condensation happens when the heat of the air moves through windows and walls. Heat moves from higher temperatures to lower temperatures. This is why condensation happens in the lower temperature areas such as windows, walls, and closets. GAINA's coating adjusts to the surrounding temperatures. So when painted with GAINA, the surface area's temperature becomes comparable to the room temperature. As a result, there is less movement of heat because there is less difference in temperature, and the effect of preventing condensation happens.
