Anti-condensation paint is a condensation solution that will significantly mitigate the accumulation of condensation on internal walls and ceilings helping to minimize any issues of black mold and damp spots while hopefully saving you money on your energy costs and helping to decrease the carbon footprint. The Anti condensation paint is an emulsion based on water that serves as a thermal buffer between cold wall surfaces and the wet, humid atmosphere.
As a result, walls and ceilings painted with the paint would be more resistant to moisture buildup and other condensation-related issues such as mold and fungal growth-which can cause serious and irreversible spoilage on decorative surfaces.
As an added advantage, once applied, our anti-condensation paint's thermal properties efficiently prevent warm air from inside the property from fleeing through the walls and dissipating outside while saving the consumer money on their energy bills and that their carbon footprints.
How Anti-Condensation Paints Work?
Anti-condensation paint prevents condensation forming and by incorporating glass bubble technology, provides an additional layer of insulation to the walls and ceilings. Glass bubbles are 100% non-toxic, empty balls about the width of a human hair that serve like miniature thermos-like bottles when inserted into a paint film. It creates a heat buffer between the cold surfaces within a living room and the colder air temperature. As a result, walls painted with the anti-condensation paint simply feel better to the touch when the heat from the hand is reflected, rather than attracted to the cooler wall surface and fleeing.
Benefits of Using Anti-Condensation Paint
- Reduces the development of droplets in liquids. Less time being spent sucking up polluted water from walls.
- Helps to suppress black mold and fungal growth while keeping the soil clean, stable, free of odors.
- Repels thermal transfer by walls and ceilings to help trap the heat inside your property.
- High thermal conductivity-the paint is applied to reduce heat being lost into the walls.
- Helps lower the heating costs by helping to retain the heat in.
- Helps to boost the air in rooms.
- Can be readily painted over any colour you want.
Tips to Avoid Condensation
- To avoid condensation and mold occurring, it is important to provide the proper ventilation in and room to maintain the Relative Humidity (Air Moisture content) at normal levels.
- If you are inside your home using portable gas bottles or paraffin heaters, you might be generating a lot of moisture you may not recognize. You are releasing one liter of moisture into the atmosphere with every liter of gas or paraffin consumed. This is not the only concern with portable gas and paraffin heaters as they also produce gases that impact your home's air quality. No use should be made of this type of heating where possible.
- Knew your pets and plants could be the reason that gives you trouble with condensation? One way to avoid short-term condensation issues is to cover up your fish tanks or drain your plants while actively watering them from within your house.
- Your furniture is also recommended to be at least 50 mm away from your windows. This allows air to flow around the room in your property area and get between your furniture and the wall.
- Making sure you continue to open a window periodically if you are using one room rather than others, such as your home living room. However, this can sound like a minor measure, it will increase in-room ventilation.
Why Condensation must be prevented?
The prime reason for controlling and preventing condensation is that it will create an unhealthy breathing environment where black mold will thrive without adequate ventilation. If you are someone who cares about the interior of your house, condensation can be very distressing as it can damage your decor, destroy fabric and furniture, and produce an unwanted scent created by moisture in your house. That is why you ought to use the Thermilate Technologies anti-condensation InsOpaint.
One could describe condensation as an issue of the season. Problems also arise as winter temperatures become colder. In certain cases, condensation issues will disappear during the summer. Even the worst occurrences of intense moisture condensation can occur all year long.
How Condensation Occurs?
During the winter months, the key reason condensation occurs is that house ventilation is usually low, and more humidity is produced. The doors and windows are most likely to be closed in the winter months. This can cause some households to suffer for some time from condensation, creating an accumulation of moisture vapor within buildings.
If the building suffers from a structure defect such as blocked wall cavities resulting in cold wall surfaces produced by bridging the cavity, so this may result in significant condensation and mold affecting these areas.
Over the years, architectural standards have improved considerably, and buildings became airtight with less draughts. In your home, adequate ventilation lowers the high relative humidity to appropriate levels. Ensuring that airflow does not have a high content of moisture inside your home will improve the likelihood of avoiding condensation. Proper heating, insulation, and ventilation are required to maintain the right amount of moisture in your house.
It is also important to ensure that those who work in the house, do not generate excessive moisture when cooking. Few may use moist dehumidifiers, so it is important to note that using a dehumidifier, you do not mess with the root of the problem.
As a homeowner you should take certain steps to increase the air quality within your home to prevent condensation. You should aim to normalize the relative humidity (RH) level of your home to between 40% and 60% of the humidity at the roof. RH can be handled by ensuring adequate heating, cooling, and ventilation in your property along with reducing the output of excess moisture in the air.
