SecoTHERM Energy Saving Wall Coating
How does this technology work?
Damp walls are thermal bridges – if moisture collects in the pores of the wall, more heat is transferred than would be possible if the cavities were filled with air. The thermal conductivity of the wall decreases enormously with dampness. Tests have shown that a damp content of 5% in a plain brick wall, for example, can lower insulation performance by up to 50%. This is especially pertinent where cavity wall insulation has been installed because when the insulation is wet it loses its thermal value. Many house owners don´t realise this fact. secoTHERM™ has been tested according to DIN ISO 4108-4 which is the European testing category for thermal insulation and has been proven in tests to reduce energy consumption.
Water absorption can be minimized dramatically by treating with secoTHERM™ on a porous brick the water absorption will be reduced by more than 95%.
secoTHERM™ has been tested to EN ISO 15148, demonstrating its hygrothermal performance on concrete, mortar, brick, and sandstone. The product penetrates deeply into the substrate and offers protection for up to 20 years.
Improve the appearance, look and performance of your masonry.
Biological growth and stains do not just look dirty but can also result in surface decay due to frost damage and can cause major humidity problems.
secoTHERM™ creates a self cleaning surface that will protect against dirt, pollution, damp and UV light degradation.
How Does This Work?
secoTHERM™ chemically bonds to the substrate up to 17mm and is therefore extremely resistant to weathering and UV rays.
The protected surface repels water and microorganisms, and dirt finds it difficult to adhere, any particles are simply washed away by rain or just by mild cleaning. The building remains permeable to water vapor.
Benefits of secoTHERM™
Benefits of masonry surfaces treated with secoTHERM™:
- Improves the thermal efficiency of the masonry by keeping it dry (Potential energy savings up to 30% or more depending on the porosity of the masonry.)
- Maintaining the thermal properties of cavity wall insulation
- Reduction in heat loss
- Offers a self-cleaning surface
- Slow ageing or break down of surface
- Less susceptible to the growth of microorganisms
