Manufactured using the latest micro insulating technologies. secoTHERM has been specially formulated to reduce heat loss through walls by the unique formulation of an effective thermal barrier. The reduction of water intake can be minimised by treating with secoTHERM. On a porous brick the water absorbtion will be reduced by more than 95%.
secoTHERM wall coatings Protect your masonry from penetrating damp and increase the thermal resistance with up to 29% energy savings. S- therm is an exciting environmentally friendly coating which is manufactured using the latest micro insulating technology.
secoTHERM has been developed to the highest standards and is the ultimate weather protection for masonry walls and bricks.
Water and UV degradation are the two key elements in the damage of masonry surfaces. secoTHERM™ is completely unaffected by UV rays and creates a barrier against water while the exterior wall surface remains permeable to water vapour.
Preventing water ingress through exterior walls and bricks can reduce energy consumption by up to 29%.
Porous building materials such as natural stone, brick, solid brick, etc. normally have good insulating properties because they have air-filled cavities which offer low thermal conductivity. But only when they are dry..
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.
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, making it difficult for dirt to adhere to. Particles are simply washed away by rain or mild cleaning. The building remains permeable to water vapour.
Water absorption can be minimized dramatically by treating with
secoTHERM. On a porous brick the water absorption will be
reduced by an averages of 95%. secoTHERM has been tested
to EN ISO 15148:2002, 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.
Biological growth and stains do not just look dirty but can result in surface decay due to frost damage. They can also cause major humidity problems.
Eurocote brings you the latest products to help you protect and improve your home.
You can protect multiple surfaces like brick, stone and concrete from rain and damp penetration for up to 20 years.
Many Governments in Europe have set targets to reduce carbon emission from houses. It is a fact that 35% of heat lost through in European hosing stock goes through the walls. Many homes have solid brick or stone walls which are difficult to insulate and when these walls get wet through rain penetration they become less effective at keeping heat in. Cavity wall insulation is not possible in many types of construction and internal insulation can be impractical and can take up on valuable space. External insulation can be costly and unattractive.
For those properties where cavity insulation is installed many home owners will not realize that once this insulation becomes wet, the insulation values become dramatically reduced. Scientific studies have shown that wet bricks transfer heat twice as quickly as dry bricks resulting in higher energy bills.
A secoTHERM application creates dry walls and promotes an internal barrier so heat can’t escape as readily and further more a S-nd coat will increase the appearance and look of your masonry by creating a self-cleaning surface that will protect against dirt, pollution, damp, and UV light degradation.
