EXTERIOR WALL COATS

DESCRIPTION
Thermo-Shield® Exterior Wall Coats are highly efficient, energy-saving, flexible coatings,
designed to insulate and waterproof exterior walls. They are non-toxic, friendly to the
environment, and form a monolithic (seamless) membrane that bridges hairline cracks.
They are completely washable and resist many harsh chemicals and dirt pick-up. These
water-based coatings are made from an acrylic resin system filled with vacuumed
borosilicate ceramic micro spheres that acts as a thermally efficient blanket. Thermo-
Shield® Exterior Wall Coats can be applied by roller or airless sprayer. Thermo-Shield®
Exterior Wall Coats put a stop to the "frequent painting cycle" - they outlast other paints
several times over. They have superb waterproofing performance, fire resistance and their
adhesion increases with saturation. These coatings have "Variable Permeability" - they
become watertight when saturated by water, and breathe away trapped water vapor when
dry. They protect against UV, greatly reduce thermal shock and sound transmission, and
have low VOC levels. These coatings come in a variety of architectural colors and leave a
beautiful matt finish.















TYPICAL USES
For painting concrete, metal, wood, polymerized surfaces and reducing condensation.

STANDARD EXTERIOR: Used in most climatic conditions where color fading is a major
concern. It has superb fire resistance, excellent chemical resistance to salt spray, strong
acids, petroleum products and other harsh chemicals.

TROPICAL EXTERIOR: With the same properties as STANDARD, it is used in climatic
conditions where fungi growth is a major concern.

INSULATION
Reflectance 89%, Emittance 94%, Conductance 0.06 W/mK - unlike typical mass insulation
where heat conduction is just slowed down, Thermo-Shield® technology keeps the heat
out. Sun light only produces heat when it is absorbed by a surface. The amount of sun light
left over after the reflection process, can either be absorbed into the wall surface as heat, or
emitted back out into the atmosphere as infrared light, not heat. The emittance process
leaves less than 2% of the radiant energy to be absorbed into the surface as heat. The
Thermo-Shield® coatings, although at a small thickness, have a very low conductivity
value to do the rest of the insulation work.

PRIMER
No primer is usually required, however, it is recommended over gypsum board.
SURFACE PREPARATION
All surfaces must be clean and free from laitance (efflorescence), dust, dirt, rust, oil and
grease. Minimally, surfaces must be cleaned to remove any loose or chipped paint, or any
other foreign material prior to coating

COLORS
White and any custom color available. Darker colors will give a correspondingly lower
Reflectivity.

V.O.C.
0.33 lbs / gallon
39.5 grams / liter

THEORETICAL COVERAGE (2 Coats)
10.4 m² per gallon at 150 microns DFT (112 sf/gallon at 6 Mills DFT)

DRYING TIME
To set: 20 minutes
To re-coat: 4 hours
To through: 12 hours
At 24 Deg C (75 Deg F) and 50% relative humidity
Effective temperature range - 40 Deg C (- 40 Deg F) to 204 Deg C (400 Deg F)

THINNING
None required. Clean water in small amounts of up to 0.24 Liter (1 cup) per gallon may
be added to replace evaporation losses or to adjust for spray equipment configuration.
Caution: excessive thinning will cause the coating to lose adhesion and elasticity.

EQUIPMENT
Roller or airless spray application is recommended. Very small areas may be brushed.
When Thermo-Shield® Exterior Wall Coats are applied by brush, three (3) coats crossbrushed
is required for adequate protection.
Airless Sprayer:
Tip Orifice: .031 inches
Atomizing Pressure: 2200 - 2500 psi
Fan Spread: 60 Degrees
Pump: Minimum 1 gallon per minute at 2500 psi
Filter: Remove filters and screens
Prime pump with water before attempting to spray Thermo-Shield® Exterior Wall Coats.
Acceptable equipment includes: Binks Super Hornet, Graco 433 or larger, and many
Others.

METHODS
To assure adequate and uniform coverage, the “spray and back roll” techniques are
recommended - spray all coats in the same direction, do not cross spray to avoid showing
undulations and other small imperfections in the walls. Thermo-Shield® Exterior Wall
Coats should be applied in full wet coats.

CLEAN UP
Clean tools and equipment with warm soapy water. Rinse with clean water; flush mineral
spirits through spray equipment to prevent rusting and to lubricate packing and gaskets.

PACKAGING
5 gallon pails or Lined 55 gallon drums.
