A range of exterior waterproof paints & coatings designed to reduce energy costs and protect homes.
Water cannot stick to the coated surface but forms droplets that run off the surface.
Water and moisture are able to escape the masonry due to the high breathability rating of the products.
Masonry remains clean and attractive as dirt is unable to take hold.
Reduces water absorption by more than 93%. Dry walls mean less heat loss.
ProPERLA wall coatings have been rigorously tested and certified by the UKAS accredited testing laboratory, Lucideon (No. 0013), to give you peace of mind.
Lucideon is an independent materials testing and analysis laboratory. Using their state-of-the-art facilities and scientific expertise, Lucideon can thoroughly test product performance and provide impartial results.
ProPERLA wall coatings have been tested for durability, thermal insulating properties, breathability and water repellency.
All ProPERLA coating products benefit from a manufacturer's performance guarantee of between 10-20 years.
Highly Water Repellent
The super hydrophobic (highly water repellent) properties of the coatings were put to the test using Lucideons in House Moisture Content Testing Method PR 27:1998.
The test results revealed that bricks coated with ProPERLA were able to repel water and reduce absorption by up to 96.3% for ProPERLA Masonary Creme and 93.4% for ProPERLA Facade Coating when compared to uncoated bricks.
Quality standard passed:
BS EN ISO 12572 - Water Vapour Resistance
To test the thermal performance benefits of ProPERLA wall and roof coatings, temperature readings were taken before, during and after the accelerated weathering test.
Properties coated with ProPERLA were found to be more energy efficient than uncoated ones. The thermal image here was taken of the property during a rain cycle and it clearly shows a 6 degree temperature differential between coated and uncoated areas. The uncoated areas are the darker areas in the image.
Quality standard passed
ETAG 004@2011 - External thermal insulation composite
Testing was conducted to determine the effect ProPERLA wall and roof coatings have on the ability of the properties to allow moisture to escape.
Specimens of ProPERLA coated bricks were submitted for the determination of water vapour resistance using the wet-cup method.
ProPERLA coatings were found to have little effect on the breathability of the brick substrate. The mean SD value of the uncoated specimens was 0.57, compared to 0.56 and 0.60 for specimens coated with ProPERLA Masonry Crème and ProPERLA Façade Coating.
Quality standard passed
BS EN ISO 7783:2011 - Water vapour diffusion
