Super Hydrophobic Damp Prevention
ProPERLA Facade Coating uses the latest nano technology to repel water and dirt and keep your property dry, clean and attractive. It mimics the super hydrophobic (highly water repellent) and self cleaning capabilities of the Lotus leaf. During wind driven rain, walls would normally absorb a lot of moisture. When ProPERLA Facade Coating is applied, the rain water is repelled and the walls remain dry – water absorption is reduced by up to 93.4% Instead of absorbing into the walls, the water forms into droplets which simply run off the surface.
A dry house is a warm house. Wet walls act like a thermal bridge causing heat to transfer away from the property which in turn can lead to higher energy bills. Scientific testing revealed that by keeping the walls dry, ProPERLA Facade Coating improves energy efficiency and as such has been verified by the Energy Savings Trust,
The newly painted appearance of your home will last much longer with ProPERLA Facade Coating -dirt is simply washed away with rainfall and due to a lack of moisture in the walls, the unsightly growth of moss, algae or lichens is made more difficult. Your property remains clean and attractive.
Moisture in the walls of your home can cause a host of problems for your house, your health and your pocket too. By keeping your walls dry, you can help to prevent;
- Penetrating damp
- Structural damage caused by sulphate attack
- Cracking caused by frost
- Accelerated decay of building materials
Available in a range of timeless pastel colours with a matt finish- perfect for your home. Colour cards with coated samples are available upon request.
ProPERLA Facade Coating does not restrict the
ability of your home to breathe. Independent
testing (BS EN ISO 7783:2011) demonstrated the
coating had little effect on air and moisture
escaping. Unlike some wall coatings ProPERLA
does not block the pores of the masonry.
A highly sophisticated clear coating system for use on brick, stone, concrete and sandstone. The product penetrates up to 17 mm into the substrate to provide a one-coat invisible insulation barrier. 20 year manufacturer’s guarantee.
The latest technology, two-coat coloured coating product for use on a range of substrates that require a coloured exterior wall coating. 10 year manufacturer’s guarantee and a lifetime expectancy of 25 years.
A one-coat super hydrophobic advanced clear coating for all mineral substrates, including absorbent roof tiles. Manufacturers guarantee of 10 years.
A one-coat super-hydrophobic advanced clear coating for vertical wooden surfaces. 10 year manufacturers guarantee.
The super hydrophobic (highly water repellent) properties of the coatings were put to the test using Lucideon’s
In House Moisture Content Testing Method PR 27:1998.
The test results revealed that bricks coated with ProPERLA were able to repel water and reduce absorption by up to 96.3%. for ProPERLA Masonry Crème and 93.4% for ProPERLA Facade Coating when compared to uncoated bricks.
Additional Certifications & Verifications ProPERLA has been verified by the Energy Savings Trust and benefits from numerous European certfications which include;
EN ISO 15148:2002 Hygrothermal Performance
EN 15824 :2009 Water absorption, water vapour permeability, tensile strength, thermal conductivity & long term durability.
All ProPERLA coating products benefit from a manufacturer’s performance guarantee of between 10-20 years.
ProPERLA Masonry Crème creates an invisible insulation barrier for single skin buildings and those built with a cavity. It has been proven to help retain heat in walls and reduce heat loss.
UKAS accredited tests have demonstrated that by reducing water absorption of the walls, ProPERLA Masonry Crème lead to thermal performance benefits.
Testing in a hygrothermal chamber revealed that a wall coated in ProPERLA Masonry Crème and subjected to repeated heat-rain conditions, resulted in reduced heat loss when compared with the uncoated (control) wall. The uncoated wall showed on average an increase of 6⁰C of heat loss in comparison to the walls coated with ProPERLA Masonry Crème.
ProPERLA Masonry Crème improves thermal efficiency and contributes to lower energy consumption and lower energy bills, by keeping walls dry. Damp walls act as ‘thermal bridges’ – enabling heat to transfer from the inside out twice as quickly as it would if the walls remained dry.
Independent testing has shown that ProPERLA Masonry Crème reduces water absorption by 96.3% and meets the British standard for water vapour resistance.
