Presentation Title:Giving Coatings a new Perception with Silicone products

Presentation Abstract: Silicone resin emulsion paints and plasters have exactly the properties that turn exterior coatings into long-lasting masonry protection systems. Their incredibly low water absorption causes water to bead off and prevents moisture damage. Their high water-vapour permeability enables the masonry to release absorbed moisture quickly into the atmosphere, which is particularly important with regard to thermally insulating buildings and lightweight plasters. Their outstanding durability guarantees that they will sustain these good qualities over time.
