VERMAPOR

ADVANTAGES

  • Excellent thermal, anti-condensation & damping properties
  • Flexible & elastic
  • Easy to install

Anti-drumming & Anti-condensation Coating

Water-based one-pack coating, with a pasty consistence, aimed at condensation control by moisture absorption and release cycles, depending on climatic conditions of the area concerned.

It can be either spread or sprayed by appropriate spray guns, directly onto pre-painted steel, galvanised steel and aluminium, previously treated by Tyrox primer. It is mainly used to prevent moisture dripping in metal deckhouses (due to night / day temperature range) where there are cyclic moisture conditions.
It also has excellent acoustic damping performance.
Once dried, the film is slightly elastic and adheres to supporting structures.

Applications

  • Anti-drumming & anti-condensation barriers

PACKAGING

  • Standard PE bucket - 20kg 
  • Pallet - 500Kg
  • Special packaging with different weights available depending on final application.

STORAGE

  • Can be stored 12 months in its original packaging, at a temperature range of +5 to +35°C. 
  • The product is not frost resistant.
  • Non-flammable product

SUPPORT PREPARATION

The support must be prepared as detailed below.

  • On surfaces that have been treated with anti-corrosive protection, it is recommended to remove any oil, grease or any other contaminants that could be present.
  • On new surfaces, or mixed surfaces, remove any external contaminants, such as mill scale, paint residues or other coatings.
  • Promat®-VERMAPOR does not have anti-corrosive properties; it is therefore recommended to use a suitable first coat, primer or corrosion protection, depending on the surface that must be treated.

PROCESSING

  • The product is generally sprayed. Manual application by brush or spatula is more difficult and suitable only for small surfaces.
  • For spray application, it is suggested to use a stem pump or a Goodyear pump, with a nozzle having a minimum 4mm diameter.
  • Tools must be cleaned immediately after use, by water.
  • The product is ready-to-use; nevertheless, in particular situations, a maximum dilution of 5-8% with clean water is possible.

FINISHING

  • Promat®-VERMAPOR must not be treated with any type of protective or decorative paint, because this would negatively affect its anti-condensation function.
