About Thermo-Shield Exterior Wall Coats
Thermo-Shield Exterior Wall Coats
Thermo-Shield Exterior Wall Coats are highly efficient, energy-saving, flexible coatings designed to insulate and waterproof exterior walls. They are non-toxic, friendly to the environment, and form a monolithic (seamless) membrane that bridges hairline cracks. They are completely washable and resist many harsh chemicals and dirt pick-up.
These water-based coatings are made from an acrylic resin system filled with vacuumed ceramic micro spheres that acts as a thermally efficient blanket.
Thermo- Shield Exterior Wall Coats put a stop to the “frequent painting cycle” – they outlast other paints several times over. They have superb waterproofing performance, fire resistance and their adhesion increases with saturation.
These coatings have “Variable Permeability” – they become watertight when saturated by water, and breathe away trapped water vapor when dry. They protect against UV, greatly reduce thermal shock and sound transmission, and have low VOC levels.
These coatings come in a variety of architectural colors and leave a beautiful satin finish.
Thermo-Shield Exterior Wall Coats can be used for painting concrete, metal, wood, polymerized surfaces and reducing condensation.
Standard Exterior: Used in most climatic conditions where color fading is a major concern. It has superb fire resistance, excellent chemical resistant to salt spray, strong acids, petroleum products and other harsh chemicals.
Tropical Exterior: With same properties as STD, it is used in climatic conditions where fungi growth is a major concern.
Acent Base: No pigmentation. Used as a semi-clear coat or when tinting for darker colors.
Although these coatings enjoy very low Conductance (0.06 W/mK), it is the combination of their high Reflectance (89%), high Emittance (94%) and Endothermic Effect® that makes them a very good choice for protecting your exterior walls from heat buildup.
Unlike typical mass insulation, where heat conduction is just slowed down, this technology keeps the heat out. Sun light only produces heat when it is absorbed by the wall surface, and being able to keep heat from forming into the surface of the walls is a very effective way to insulate.
The cooling process of Endothermic Effect® ensures that the surface continues to insulate, even if Reflectance is diminished with aging, dust build-up or darker colors.
