Condensation Confron­ta­tion: ThermalDry Paint

Damp can become an issue in all types of properties and for many different reasons. One of the most common causes is condensation and Twitsfix offer a range of solutions to the problem, including ThermalDry Anti-Conden­sation Coating.

ThermalDry Anti-Conden­sation Coating is a purpose-developed product which comprises a water-based acrylic emulsion paint. The formula incorporates myriad small glass beads, each of which is completely hollow; these beads allow the paint to act like a Thermos flask, using a reflective process to block thermal energy.

When thermal energy is reflected in this way, the masonry walls are protected from damp-causing conden­sation. Surfaces that are generally at a low temperature, such as walls, are more prone to conden­sation; ThermalDry fixes the issue by lowering the dew point by increasing this temperature.

Two coats of ThermalDry must be applied to create the most effective barrier. The first coat is applied in a horizontal fashion then, after up to four hours of drying time, the second coat is applied perpen­dicular to the first. Before applying the formula, it should be gently stirred by hand to disperse the glass beads evenly.

As well as protecting against conden­sation, ThermalDry also delivers an effective barrier against mould formation. It can be applied to internal or external walls, directly onto brick or concrete and over existing plaster and paint.

ThermalDry forms part of our portfolio of anti-conden­sation products. Find out more details on our website!
