Are any of you using Watts Flexplate graphite heat distribution material?

My wife and I have a  tiled floor over a 38" crawl space in our geodesic dome home that we would like to install a staple up system under. The configuration of the floor joists makes the use of aluminum plates pretty labor intensive. If the Watts graphite material is anywhere near as effective as its advertising implies than it looks like a great possible route for us to take.'



Are any of you using the product or know anyone else that has used it?



Thanks for any informed replies,



Hugh

    Still seeking info

    One bump before giving up. If you don't  want to "broadcast" a reply just email me directly and I promise to not quote you.



    Thanks for any feedback on this product.

    Check with John Sweeney at Watts Radiant

    Granted, they represent the product, but I am sure he can give you the names of contractors who have applied it.

    It's not so much a case of "You got what you paid for", as it is a matter of "You DIDN'T get what you DIDN'T pay for, and you're NOT going to get what you thought you were in the way of comfort". Borrowed from Heatboy.

    At this point....

    I have not used it and the only person who I thing has experimented w/ it was Hot Rod Rohr. Seemed to be an OK product,  just don't think it is readily available to everyone .... and it would also seem that supply houses everywhere don't want to stock stuff unless it will fly off the shelves.

    Thanks for that much

    I emailed HotRod but did not receive a response. It's amazing that no one seems to

    have any experience with the product.

    Too new to rate...

    That stuff has not been on the N.A. market all that long. Looks like an interesting concept for sure.



    There are numerous carbon fiber based products, some which incorporate Eutectic Salt Phase Change materials as well, that I learned about from the annual RPA conference..
