Elementum Additive for water based Paints
Technical Data Sheet (TDS)

Description: Roof Tile Clear Coat is a very high Hydrophobic Aerogel and Acrylic Emulsion Polymer formulation. Due to its hydrophobic character Roof Tile Clear Coat (ERTCC) provides
remarkable resistance to water and excellent insulative properties. It shows excellent resistance to efflorescence from fresh cement substrate and high resistance to mould, algae, alkali and soiling.
Applications: Its versatility makes it suitable for a wide variety of applications, like insulative coatings for cementious, clay, wood, steel, stone etc. substrates with a high wear resistance. Skin? It is a revolutionary paint matrix which contains highly reflective and massively durable heat reflective platelets and glass microspheres. The paint matrix creates a solvent free, water repellent, yet breathable “skin”. Just like human skin the layer is flexible, water repellent, breathable, anti-soiling and it allows the building to moderate temperature solvent free composite. It contains  microscopic Glass Spheres and Micro reflectors (aerogels). It is highly elastic, approx. 130% Buildings are like living organisms they breathe, move and are exposed to harsh elements ERTCC keeps the roofs of a building dry , therefore preventing heat loss through thermal conduction and evaporative cooling .The reflective characteristics of the paint significantly reduces heat gain from solar warming in summertime.

Uses

• Condensation Control
• Insulating storage tanks (water, chemical,
fuel)
• Roofing new and old, flat or inclined
• Ceilings and interior walls to stop heat from
escaping
• Floors (under floor heating under tubing)
• Cold storage (freezers, reefer units)
• Ice rinks, indoor swimming pools
• Refrigerated Trucks
• Delivery Vans ( UPS )
• Over studs, ceilings and roofing to block and
prevent heat gain or loss
Walls interior, exterior, both internal and exterior
walls can be coated. Paints are available in any
colour

Additional Attributes

  • This unique technology offers additional benefits
  • Free of allergenic solvents, POP s and plasticisers
  • Wet abrasion resistance to DIN- 13300
  • High opacity to DIN -13300
  • Crack bridging elasticity
  • Rejects soiling agents and algae
  • Powerful adhesion to a wide range of substrates
  • Flame retardant to B1-DIN 4105
  • Extremely high solar light reflection, up to 98%*
  • UV, weather and aging resistant
  • Absorption of all VOC’s, CO₂ etc. act like a tree
  • Excellent bonding to most substrates and easy to apply

*Level of solar reflection varies depending on the
colour of the paint 98%= white base coat

In winter

In winter the main heat gain results from the
warmth remaining within the house.

Factory roof coating

98% heat reflection on a metal roof massively reduces the internal temperature of the factory. Imacivity ability through heat off even after 18 year test still shows 85% effective. This results in
significant reduction in air conditioning costs.
• Coating the roof of a house
• Asset protection
• Aesthetic enhancement
• Keep the building cool [n summer and warmer in winter.

Key Benefits

Highly water repellent Breathable and nonbreathable variants High elasticity and crack coverage UV and weathering resistant Rejects soiling , fungal and algae growth Abrasion resistant and colour fast Easy to apply with roller or spray ( in 27 colours) Suitable for almost all standard building substrates Enhances building insulation in winter. It has high levels of solar reflection which dramatically reduces AC costs. Fire retardant.
