DRYTECH – Products to fight moisture, mold, solar and radiant heat.
There are many areas that need to be protected against moisture, condensation and noise. Tikkurila is now able to offer Drytech products as sustainable and easy-to-use solutions for professionals, industries and consumers alike for solving problems related to mold, condensation and thermal cycling.
Drytech products are a series of functional coatings, based on a unique, microporous matrix technology. Permacorr Thermal is a ceramic insulating coating. At the heart of their operating principles are the physical processes that occur in micropores – such as accumulation and evaporation of water. In addition, some of the coatings offer insulation.
Main functional properties of the coatings
- Absorbing condensation water
- Spreading liquid water over the coating
- Breaking the surface tension
- Speeding up evaporation due to the enlarged surface
Typical application areas are new and previously painted surfaces, warehouses, parking garages, ventilation ducts, water treatment plants, production facilities, sports halls and arenas, interior surfaces of wind turbine towers, sea containers, animal sheds, indoor pools, locker-rooms, basement areas in areas where protection of the paint film from mold contamination is required. Public buildings, living spaces, sports facilities, locker rooms, bathrooms, basements/cellars, parking garages, breweries, food production facilities, warehouses and animal husbandry installations.
