The ready-to-use facade coating ThermoProtect has moisture and temperature regulating properties. It reduces the formation of algae and lowers energy consumption. The unique synthesis of a polyacrylate dispersion with ceramic hollow spheres and activators creates a reflective membrane after application, which ensures an above-average long intact, dry and weathering-free facade.
This membrane acts as a barrier that protects the masonry from the penetration of precipitation and condensation. At the same time, the capillary effect dehumidifies the masonry. A dry masonry insulates much better than a damp one! The loss of transmission heat is reduced. The dry masonry absorbs solar input from the low sun more effectively in winter and thus improves the energy balance of a building. An example from Sweden with 12% energy savings.
In summer, the exterior walls are cooled by short-wave sunlight reflection and by directional evaporation processes. This reduces cooling loads and thus energy costs. At the same time, the exterior walls are kept dry, which counteracts the development of algae growth, especially on insulated facades.
When used in hot climates, heat transport from the outside to the inside is reduced.
