Water is an excellent thermal conductor. A brick containing only 4% moisture loses around half of its heat-insulation effect. Silicone resin emulsion paints keep facades dry for longer and are therefore ideal for supporting all measures for insulating exterior walls.

Furthermore, they offer ideal protection for external thermal insulation composite systems (ETICS). In general, ETICS attract a large amount of condensation, while the facade also cannot dry out very well.

Thermal images of a facade: the left-hand half of the house is insulated, while the right-hand half is not.

Saving Energy with Silicone Resin Emulsion Paints

Silicone resin emulsion paints improve a building’s energy balance, both when the facade is insulated and when it is not.
