Our anti-condensation paint combats condensation by reflecting heat back in the direction it came from. Not only does this help control condensation, it also reduces the amount of heat lost through interior walls. The benefits include:
Hollow glass spheres are incorporated into the paint and act like miniature thermos-bottles. This provides each coat with a thermal barrier between cold surfaces and the warmer surrounding temperature. The thermal barrier acts as an insulator thus controlling condensation and preventing fungal growth and mould.
White is the only colour available.
Yes, you are able to paint over anti-condensation paint in any colour you wish without it affecting the thermal benefits of the paint.
As newly applied paint dries micro-cracks begin to form leaving the paint vulnerable to water molecules forming within. A large amount of energy is needed to heat up a humid room and to evaporate the build-up of water.
Anti-condensation paint has lower shrinkage properties (the reduction in volume due to loss of moisture by evaporation) in comparison to conventional emulsions. This helps create a smoother surface thus preventing micro cracks from forming.
Cold surfaces such as walls and windows provide an ideal surface for water vapour from moisture-laden air to condense onto. Water droplets are often easy to spot giving you a clear sign of a condensation problem.
The ability for more permeable surfaces such as wallpaper, plasterboard and fabrics (curtains & bed linen) to absorb water can make it harder to spot condensation. Continuous and chronic condensation can cause problems such as discolouration, staining, peeling of wallpaper, blistering of paint and mould growth.
No matter the age of your property, condensation, mould and fungal growth can become an issue if not properly protected against; therefore our experts are trained to identify the signs of these issues as early as possible.
Our friendly Property Care experts will conduct a thorough survey before determining the best solution for your condensation problem, which may include the application of anti-condensation paint or installation of fans or anti-condensation units.
