ThermoKote – the paint that prevents surface condensation and black mould 

ThermoKote contains tiny, non-toxic glass microspheres which allows the wall to retain heat for much longer compared to other decorative or specialist paints. This is what sets it apart for other more standard anti condensation paints and gets proven results. It is biocide free.

How does ThermoKote work?

The glass beads, effectively become “charged” like a battery cell to form a thin thermal layer which allows surfaces to retain heat rather than the heat passing through.

It is this heat retention that means the wall stays warmer which in turn reduces the chance of surface condensation forming and so preventing the damp wall conditions which causes black mould.

ThermoKote can be painted or wall papered over without affecting its performance which allows re-decoration of a property to take place to the style and type required yet continuing to give ongoing protection against black mould.

Benefits of ThermoKote

  • Prevents black mould and reduces surface condensation
  • Prevent the build-up of harmful spores which can cause respiratory, skin and immune problems
  • Perfect for use internally on those external cold exterior walls and areas of missing insulation
  • Can be painted or wallpapered over unlike biocidal or absorbing anti-mould paints
  • Minimum disruption and time efficient due to its quick drying times
  • Biocide free making it more environmentally friendly

Using ThermoKote to prevent condensation problems

The presence of black mould growth on walls and ceilings is a stubborn and distressing problem and can be caused due to cold surfaces which are difficult or impossible to rectify. Examples of these are as follows:

  • Cold, north facing external walls
  • Poor heating or areas of missing insulation
  • Solid walls or walls with a minimal cavity
  • Failed cavity fill insulation which has caused “cold spots”
  • Areas of poor ventilation (behind furniture, corners of a room)

ThermoKote is a cost effective and low disruptive way of dealing with condensation problems.

We work with housing associations and landlords so they can support their tenants and maintain their property stock as well as with homeowners to stop condensation and black mould problems in properties.

It can be used as a standalone solution to stop ongoing mould problems where walls are cold or areas where insulation may be missing or inadequate.or to compliment other methods required to treat damp, condensation and mould problems such as the introduction of Positive Input Ventilation and Extraction Fans.
