A reliable and long-lasting solution to the above is the shielding of problematic surfaces with KRAFT special anticracking protection materials. After suitable background preparation (repair of loose parts, removal of old paints, priming, etc.), the application of suitable coatings characterized by the elasticity, durability and ultimate aesthetic enhancement they can provide. There are 2 main Anticracking Protection systems:
- Anticracking protection with additional energy upgrading effect due to the European patented material CLIMA Comfort Stucco. Ideal for buildings with strong expansion and contraction forces and, at the same time, with a need for energy upgrading without the possibility of using a heat-insulating board due to eg. lack of space or architectural restriction (partitions or uncovered apartment spaces).
CLIMA Comfort STUCCO is Waterborne polycarbonate polymer modified acrylic coating, highly resistant to substrate alkali migration, with excellent adhesion to pre-painted cementitious substrates. Highly durable coating, it benefits from a combination of patented energy saving and solar energy reflecting ingredients and a unique binder system reinforced with a highly durable polycarbonate polymer that enhances water resistance, improves water vapor permeability and provides an easily cleaned fine textured surface. Tintable, it features exceptional color fastness, exterior durability and UV resistance. Superior resistance to bacteria, fungi and algae. Excellent solar reflection and unique thermal insulating ingredients store daytime heat energy, blocking heat gain during the summer and retaining heat during the winter, improving indoor comfort and energy efficiency. . The material has a solar reflective index SRI≥108, a thermal conductivity λ≤0,17 W / mK, a thermal emittance ε≥0,93 and it is certified by ETAG004.. Indicative consumption of 1.8 – 2.4 lt / m2.
