Stay cool!

ETICS-insulated façades are more sensitive to heating by sunlight than non-insulated façades. 

With a dark coating (light reference value below 20), the sun quickly heats the façade surfaces to over 70 °C. This huge amount of heat can lead to deformation of the panels or to cracks in the plaster with polystyrene insulation.

Consequently, façade paints with light reference values below 20 on ETICS must be viewed very critically and are no longer state of the art.

Thanks to ALLFAcool pigmentation, however, darker colour shades are also possible! 

Special pigments are applied for this type of factory tinting that cause a higher reflection of solar radiation. Therefore the surface heats up less.
You can obtain the ALLFAcool pigmentation in these façade products on request.
