    RD-Aquasorb

    Technical sheet

    Single-component water-based anti-condensation paint. Absorbs then releases moisture when the air becomes dry again.

    RD-Aquasorb is based on a styrenated acrylic dispersion. The coating is applied in rooms subject to regular condensation on ceilings and walls. It helps to prevent the growth of mold, watermarks, or drops and runoffs.

    Description of the product

    USE:

    Single-component water-based anti-condensation paint. Absorbs then releases moisture when the air becomes dry again.

    FEATURES:

    RD-Aquasorb is based on a styrenated acrylic dispersion. The coating is applied in rooms subject to regular condensation on ceilings and walls. It helps to prevent the growth of mold, watermarks, or drops and runoffs.

    RD-Aquasorb will absorb water from condensation in the room that will later be released as vapour once the room is ventilated, and the humidity level becomes lower.  

    It can therefore not be overpainted or applied in rooms that are permanently wet!

    RD-Aquasorb is suitable to be used in various situations where there is regular condensation and high humidity like in the food industries: breweries, dairy factories, meat and fish processing, … - bathrooms, kitchens, … - buildings, technical rooms with condensation problems …

    RD-Aquasorb can be applied on many kinds of surface including steel when used with the appropriate primer.

    SUBSTRATES:

    Concrete, plaster, steel, plastics, … with the appropriate primer
