Water based, acrylic thermal insulating paint for exterior masonry surfaces
SurfaPaint ThermoDry Exterior is a high quality acrylic elastomeric emulsion paint with thermal insulating properties, ideal for exterior use.
It’s certified by European Cool Roof Council ( ECRC )
SurfaPaint ThermoDry Exterior combines a unique external acrylic paint with the thermal insulating particles that block heat transfer, reﬂect thermal radiation, and create a moisture barrier resulting in signiﬁcant energy savings. The paint provides excellent opacity and coverage, strong adhesion, coating ﬂexibility, elastomeric behaviour for crack bridging, UV and alkali resistance. Therefore, the application of SurfaPaint ThermoDry Exterior can prevent the development of Urban Heat Islands (UHIs), by reﬂecting more than 90% of the incident heat radiation away from a building’s structure. Available in white colour for optimum reflective properties. It can be used as a tinting base for light shades. SurfaPaint ThermoDry Exterior is a Cool Coating, certified by the European Cool Roofs Council (ECRC).
Exterior surfaces: walls, masonry, concrete, plaster board and wherever water based, acrylic paints are applied.
Applicability: SurfaPaint ThermoDry Exterior can be applied directly on exterior wall surfaces (masonry, concrete, plaster, drywalls), and wherever water based, acrylic paints are applied. New substrates from cement or masonry should have cured for more than 3-4 weeks before primer application. For better results apply SurfaMix P as a primer. Adverse conditions during or immediately after application may aﬀect the coating’s properties.
Preparation: Ensure all surfaces are clean and dry prior to application. Remove any dust and dirt.
Application note: Stir well before application. Do not dilute for bridging gaps and hairline cracks of up to 0,5 mm. For cracks bigger that 1mm, ﬁll the gap with a suitable putty. If thinning is required add up to 10% water by volume. Application temperature should be between 8 – 35oC. Apply 2-3 even coats using a good quality brush, roller or by spraying with a tip of a diameter 1,4mm or more. Do not overbrush. Ensure corners and edges are adequately covered. Additional coats should be applied 4-6 hours after the previous application.
Spreading Rate: 10-12 m²/L.
Drying Time: Typically 1 hour depending upon coat thickness. Low temperatures and high humidity will lengthen drying times.
