HVAC System Corrosion Protection for Coastal Resorts, Hotels and Businesses.

In coastal areas, air conditioners corrode faster and need to be replaced far quicker, leading to a less appealing building appearance. More importantly, this also results in much higher capital costs, especially for high rise buildings where air conditioners can only be replaced via cranes.

This is where THERMAL-XR® can help.

What is THERMAL-XR®?

This air conditioning coating system – powered by the carbon wonder product, graphene – effectively prevents corrosion and rust thanks to its incredible ability to repel moisture.

THERMAL-XR® powered by GMG Graphene has created a unique way of resisting corrosion, increasing heat transfer and improving the thermal efficiency of air conditioning systems. It is suitable for application on aluminium and copper fins and tubes used in air-cooled air conditioning equipment.

THERMAL-XR® can be coated on new and existing air conditioning units on site, without being removed from the building, extending their lifespan.

Testimonial – Elements of Byron

Elements of Byron, an award-winning eco-luxe beachfront resort, have experienced the incredible benefits of THERMAL-XR® on their air conditioning units.

Being close to the ocean, they have had to replace their air conditioners in the past due to corrosion.

However, thanks to their application of THERMAL-XR®, they will now see a 3-5 year extension on the life of their air conditioning units, resulting in huge cost savings for the resort.

Frequently Asked Questions


The results vary subject to the climate, age and deterioration of the equipment, cleanliness of the equipment, heating and cooling load and the health of the equipment.

Please see our distributor and partners page for full details.


Please speak with GMG or our local distributor/partner.


Accreditied applicators should install THERMAL-XR® HVAC to ensure correct installation and warranty coverage.

Please get in touch with GMG or our local distributor or partner for more information.

THERMAL-XR® is powered by GMG Graphene and leverages graphene to remove heat, whereas black pigment in most black paints absorbs and retains heat.  THERMAL-XR® works like a heat pump to transfer heat, whereas black paint typically performs as a paint insulator to retain heat in the paint and the substrate it is applied to.


  • Each jurisdiction has Consumer Protection Laws and no company or product is excluded from this protection.


  • The majority of HVAC-R equipment warranties have an exclusion clause related to corrosion and weather influence. For example:
    • Failure or damage due to floods, winds, fires, lightning, accidents, corrosive environments (rust, etc) or other conditions beyond the control of the Company. (Panasonic)
    • Damage or deterioration of all components internal/external surfaces or refrigeration coils caused by normal weathering or corrosive atmospheric conditions (e.g. sea air) and/or unsatisfactory performance as a result of normal weathering; (Actron Air)
  • Equipment warranties are limited by component.
    • The warranty period is five (5) years on the compressor, and one (1) year on all other parts.  The warranty is to the original owner only and is not available for subsequent owners. (Carrier)
  • Many OEM’s recommend coil coating protection

Heat Transfer and Energy Savings

  • THERMAL-XR® has a 5 Year Conditional Warranty which would be highly beneficial to equipment that is older than any equipment warranty timeframe.
  • THERMAL-XR® coating has superior Heat Transfer which potentially reduces the need for compressor and fan operation. This in turn will reduce equipment wear extending the equipment’s lifespan.
  • THERMAL-XR® shows reduced heat pressures and temperatures and reduced compressor running time to setpoint which could extend the life of mechanical components.

THERMAL-XR® HVAC is formulated for HVAC applications.

GMG is developing specific industry formulations to match industry applications and conditions.
