Product Description

Trucryl Acrylic Eggshell Emulsion is a low odour coating for interior use. It can be applied to a range of indoor surfaces, including walls, ceilings, wood and metal.

Trucryl Eggshell has stain blocking and moisture resistant properties, making it ideal for rooms such as bathrooms and kitchens. The emulsion is also durable and washable, making the coating easy to maintain, even in areas exposed to more dirt that require frequent cleaning.

Trucryl Acrylic Eggshell is touch dry in as little as 30 minutes and can be over coated after 2 hours. This provides minimal disruption while the emulsion is applied, allowing application in busy public areas without long periods of closure.

As we manufacture our Acrylic Eggshell Emulsion, we have full technical knowledge of the properties and uses of this emulsion. If you have any questions regarding compatibility with surfaces and existing coatings, preparation or application, please contact us. During office hours, we are available by web chat or phone, or you can contact us by email, which are checked each morning and throughout the day.

We also have a range of other emulsions available, such as our matt finish Trumatt Matt Emulsion and Trusheen Silk Emulsion for a silk finish emulsion.

Ensure all surfaces are clean, dry and free from dust, grease, etc. Gloss and oil painted surfaces should be washed clean and rubbed down. Powder or flaky surfaces should be primed prior to painting.

On porous surfaces or new work, thin the paint with up to 20% clean water for the first coat (avoid over thinning).

Stir well prior to application.

By brush – load generously and avoid over spreading.

By roller – load generously and apply evenly. A deep pile roller should be used on textured surfaces.

Cleaning: Clean application immediately after use. Use clean cold water.

Why does condensation form in my home?
Condensation forms more easily on cold surfaces in the home, for example walls and ceilings. In some cases, those surfaces can be made warmer by improving the thermal insulation. In many cases, thermal insulation is not possible due to house configuration or cost of refurbishment. An efficient way of combating condensation is to cover walls and ceilings with a specially formulated anti-condensation paint and TruTherm anti condensation paint has been formulated using the latest technology of additives.

What is the difference between anti condensation paint and thermal anti condensation paint?
Anti-condensation paint and thermal anti-condensation paint both aim to prevent condensation issues, but they work in slightly different ways:

Anti-Condensation Paint:
Purpose: Anti-condensation paint is designed to stop damp problems caused by moisture from inside the property.
Function: It creates a layer of insulation on surfaces, reducing the formation of water droplets on walls. This type of paint is particularly useful in areas prone to high humidity, such as bathrooms, kitchens, or basements.
Effect: By improving the thermal performance of surfaces, it makes them less likely to retain moisture, preventing condensation and mold formation.
Limitations: While it helps reduce condensation, it cannot completely prevent mold growth. Good air circulation, adequate heating, and ventilation are still essential12.
Thermal Anti-Condensation Paint:
Purpose: Like anti-condensation paint, thermal anti-condensation paint aims to prevent condensation, but it focuses on thermal insulation.
Function: It absorbs and holds heat longer than standard emulsions. By doing so, it prevents condensation from forming on the surface of the wall, as the heat evaporates any moisture.
Effect: The improved thermal properties keep the wall warmer, reducing the risk of condensation.
Application: Use it in areas where standard paints might struggle due to constant high humidity and moisture levels.
Note: While it helps prevent condensation, it’s essential to address root causes (such as ventilation and heating) alongside using this paint for optimal protection32.
In summary, both types of paint serve similar purposes but approach the problem from different angles. Consider your specific needs and the environment when choosing between them. Remember that no paint can completely eliminate mould growth, so proper maintenance and ventilation remain crucial.
