Thermilate


Postby coustygadje » Wed May 23, 2007 1:37 pm

I have recently found listed on various internet sites a paint called "thermilate" Is this paint for real and will it provide extra insulation of walls ? Has anybody used this paint and how good is it ? I am planning on decorating my house, which has solid stone walls so this sounds like a good idea to mix with the paint to stop heat loss.

Thermalite ( Hansons) do make a paint grade block with a fair face that can be painted easily but we doubt if Thermailte make an actual paint. Could be wrong though !!

I have used this in a front lobby and a bathroom but I dont know if it's affected as I have no previous bills to go from. I can say though that i found it a little tricky to apply. I found that when I was applying it, the grains went on thicker in some place and extra care has to be made by going over it a few times to get an even finish. It does leave a fine grain texture, however, I used it in a base coat of white, and then painted over it with 2 - 3 covers of the colour and the grains disappeared.
