How does thermal insulation paint insulate?
It is possible thanks to the glass microspheres contained in the paint, which fulfill two functions – they reflect solar radiation and increase thermal resistance.
How does GoTherm stop mold and fungus bloom?
The paint eliminates thermal bridges and “shifts” the dew point, thanks to which no moisture appears on the painted surface – the main cause of mold and fungus.
Can I paint inside?
Of course! GoTherm is a water-based paint, and therefore ecological! Remember, however, that as with other paints, the room must be well ventilated when painting.
How thick a layer of paint do I need to apply?
It all depends on the problem you want to solve:
Heating up from the sun? Just 0.5 mm is enough
Mold and fungus on the walls? We recommend 1 mm
Hot surface (e.g. pipe)? 1,5-3 mm
How many liters of paint do I need?
If you have difficulties with estimating the amount of paint you need, please do not hesitate to contact us! Tell us what type of surface you want to cover, its size and the problem you would like to solve, and we will advise you on the right amount!
Is the thermal insulation paint a substitute for polystyrene/wool?
Yes and no. While thermal insulation paint, due to its fluidity, allows you to cover surfaces of any shape, in the case of insulation, for example, buildings, it works better as “additional insulation”. By using paint in this case, we can significantly reduce the thickness of the polystyrene, and thus not lose volume.
Can I paint by myself with GoTherm paint?
Of course, all you need is a brush or roller! However, we should remember that this is not a standard decorative paint, but a thin-layer thermal insulation, so the comfort of application may differ. We recommend performing a trial painting on a safe section and applying the first, diluted with water, layer in order to create an appropriate base for the subsequent layers.
Can I apply thermal insulation paint to metal?
Yes, GoTherm paint can be applied to many types of substrates, such as concrete, plaster, metal, wood and plastics (except polyethylene).
What is the difference between GoTherm and AT Termo?
AT Termo is a thermal insulation paint for a specialized application, intended for operation in harsh industrial conditions. Due to the fact that it is a demanding product, all contractors cooperating with us are required to undergo training in the application and use of AT Termo paint.
What is the drying time?
The drying and recoating times depend on the thickness of the layer, temperature and relative air humidity. For example, the drying time of a single layer at a temperature of +20 ± 2 ° C is up to 24 hours, while if the temperature of the substrate is above + 50 ° C, this time is reduced to 1 hour.
