How does secoTHERM® 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. 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®
- Improves the thermal efficiency of the masonry by keeping it dry
- 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
Superior technology and durability
secoTHERM® is developed to the highest standards and is the ultimate weather protection for masonry walls and bricks.
Water and UV degradation are key elements in the damage of masonry surfaces. secoTHERM® is completely unaffected by UV rays and creates a barrier against water ingress while the exterior wall surface remains permeable to water vapour.
Preventing water ingress through exterior walls and bricks reduces the thermal conductivity. Porous building materials such as natural stone, bricks, solid brick, etc. have good insulating properties because they have air-filled cavities.
BUT ONLY WHEN THEY ARE DRY.
