In summer most rooms heat up strongly by intensive sunbeams. That influences the concentration, breathing and a good night's sleep. In winter, on the other hand, many people, despite increased heating, have the typical winter feeling: a hot head and cold feet. The thermoceramic paint ThermoPlus from our ClimateActivePaint® product range provides a pleasant interior climate on every day of the year – regardless of the weather outside.
The surface-active interior finish contains tiny small ceramic bubbles (Microspheres) and this creates a thermoceramic membrane after application. During the summer the membrane takes the excess moisture from the air, stores it and compensates the drier room air at a later stage with this moisture (Entropy principle). This results in evaporation coolness which both cools the wall surfaces, as well as lowers the high room temperatures.
In winter when there’s low humidity the thermoceramic coating takes heat energy and divides this evenly in its membrane without passing it to the wall behind it (SF-technology *). The increased surface temperature now provides a reflection of energy in the short-wave infrared range (IR-reflection). Convection currents and thermal bridges are minimized and avoid dust movement and the formation of mould. As a result – even for people with an allergy or asthma – a pleasant indoor climate is created. Throughout the year, the coating ensures, due to its physical properties, a relative humidity of app. 55%. In general this is considered as most pleasant.
The coating contains no semi-volatile organic compounds such as plasticizers, organic solvents or isothiazolinones. During or after processing, no harmful health or allergy irritant particles or fumes are released.
