CALOR PLUS | Warm white – Efficient additives for paints and plasters

CHT CALOR PLUS

Unique properties for high-grade products

Mainly biocides and algicides are used on façade surfaces to reduce algae and fungus. Biocides slow down the growth of algae, but do not prevent it. It is known that dark paint and plaster coatings have much less algae and fungus growth than light-coloured plasters.

Dark façades heat up faster in the sun, and the evaporation of condensation and rain water is quicker. In this way the moisture is withdrawn from the algae and fungus and their growth is prevented.

With CALOR PLUS in light-coloured façade coatings the same effect is achieved and it is called “warm white“.

CALOR PLUS is a mineral pigment for paint and plaster systems. The pigment absorbs more infrared radiation and converts this to heat. The higher surface temperature allows for a quicker drying of rain and condensation water on the façade surface. As a result, there is no livelihood for the growth of algae and microbial contamination. The functional surface coating allows for the reduced application of fungicides and biocides. Owing to the mineral composition, pigments of the CALOR PLUS series remain permanently effective.

By applying a low amount of CALOR PLUS, the surface temperature can be increased by more than
10 °C. Thus, the coating system modified with CALOR PLUS has an approx. 20 % quicker drying speed after raining or formation of condensation water.

 

The following CALOR product types are available


CALOR PLUS | Powdery pigment to be added to the dispersion process

CALOR SIL | Aqueous pigment paste which is added during or at the end of the production processes

 

Application fields of the CALOR series:

  • Outside dispersion paints
  • Silicone resin paints
  • Silicone resin plasters
  • Silicate paints
  • Silicate plasters
  • Synthetic resin plasters for outside

 

Perfect combination of CALOR PLUS
CALOR PLUS can be combined with AGOCEL I, AGOCEL V, VARIPHOB HP, VARIPHOB SR, VARISURF D as well as VARIPHOB SP.

Combined use in the system ensures an optimal adjustment of water retention, rheology and hydrophobicity as well as an ideal control of the dispersion process.
