Coating, paint, thermal insulation mass – similarities and differences between AT TermoⓇ and GoThermⓇ.

Our offer is constantly expanding. We add new products and improve others. In the following article, we will describe them in such a way as to better show the differences and similarities between them. We hope it will help you make the best decision.

Thermal insulating coatings

Thermal insulation coatings include paints and compounds. What are they and what are the differences between them? You will find the answer below.

Thermal insulating paints

First of all, you should know that paints have a thinner consistency than masses. Therefore, they can be applied using a paint roller, brush or sprayer. Their application is relatively easy and anyone can handle it. However, please remember that thermal insulating paint contains glass microspheres, which makes it behave slightly differently than decorative products. It is this additional ingredient that is responsible for all its useful properties. Thanks to the paint, we are able to lay thinner layers of the thermal insulation coating. If we need to put another one on, we will have to wait until it dries (about 20 hours) to apply an additional cover.

Thermal insulation mass

Thermal insulation mass, on the other hand, is a thick product that can be applied with a putty knife. If you are good with this tool or your walls are to be insulated by a specialist, using mass may be a better solution. Why? Because this allows you to apply a thicker single layer of coating. Which type of coating should I choose? It depends on:
    • how good you are with tools.
