SurfaPaint ThermoDry Exterior is a high quality acrylic elastomeric emulsion paint with thermal protective properties, ideal for exterior use. Powered by SurfaPore ThermoDry, it contains special nano and microsized thermal protective ingredients contributing to energy savings during winter and summer. The thermal protective particles block heat transfer,
reflect thermal radiation, and create a moisture barrier that can result in significant energy savings. Suitable for application on masonry exposed to adverse weather conditions and for the protection of damaged surfaces with micro cracks. SurfaPaint ThermoDry Exterior is a cool colour, certified by the European Cool Roofs Council (ECRC).
Exterior surfaces, such as walls, masonry, concrete, plaster board and wherever water based, acrylic paints are applied.
Applicability: SurfaPaint ThermoDry Exterior can be applied directly on exterior wall surfaces (masonry, concrete, plaster, drywalls), and wherever water based, acrylic paints are applied. New substrates from cement or masonry should have cured for more than 3-4 weeks before primer application. For better results apply SurfaMix P as a primer. Adverse conditions during or immediately after application may affect the coating’s properties.
Preparation: Ensure all surfaces are clean and dry prior to application. Remove any dust and dirt.
Application note: Stir well before application. Do not dilute for bridging gaps and hairline cracks of up to 0,5 mm. For cracks bigger that 1mm, fill the gap with a suitable putty. If thinning is required add up to 10% water by volume. Application temperature should be between 8 – 35oC. Apply 2-3 even coats using a good quality brush, roller or by spraying with a tip of a diameter 1,4mm or more. Do not overbrush. Ensure corners and edges are adequately covered. Additional coats should be applied 4-6 hours after the previous application.
Spreading rate: 10-12 m²/L.
Drying time: Typically 1 hour depending upon coat thickness. Low temperatures and high humidity will lengthen drying times.
