EcoSpray-Foam Systems uses SecoFLEX for masonry protective coating, this high quality product is one of the best on the market and can provide an optimal solution
for many property defects. One example where masonry protective coating can be sufficiently applied is on costal houses and properties where the salt (chloride) can have
drastic effects on the structures of a property, causing decay, rotting and a shortened lifespan. This product is manufactured by one of the largest paint companies, worldwide. Additionally,
the SecoFLEX masonry paint is around 6 times stronger than that of standard masonry paint.
Facades are subject to harm from soot, sand and dust, especially in more densely populated areas. Additionally acid rain has effects on facades along with sulfur dioxide and
other airborne substances, all penetrating masonry pores.
Algae is disseminated via wind and becomes fixated onto facades. Environmental factors such as temperature, carbon dioxide, moisture and light all contribute to the spread of algae.
In harsher conditions, facades are prone to greater damage and turn green, brown or red.
With sufficient damp-proofing on facades, such as SecoFLEX masonry paint, salts can damage exterior walls, causing them to flake and crumble. The spread of salt on to
facades dries out, concentrates and forces the plaster to flake.
Cracking can lead to water penetrations, frost damage and mould growth if facades are not treated correctly. Cracking can be in the form of hair cracks or web-like cracks and can
be caused by heavy paint along with harsh weather conditions that penetrate the facade.
This is a sign of poor adhesion, if coatings are applied to insufficiently firm substrates, the internal stresses in paint lead to the formation of cracks. Water is then able
to ingress and create flaking of the facade.
Facades that are exposed to moisture absorption and temperature change may be on the receiving end of blistering. Cycles of warming and cooling expose facades to blistering, especially
from weak areas of the substrate.

Masonry Application Conditions
EcoSpray-Foam Systems ensures an optimal application of the SecoFLEX masonry product, to allow for lifelong duration and sustainability of the sealant.
In order for us to provide our highest quality service, before any masonry applications, we must carry out the work during the correct conditions. Conditions that
must be met are: stable and dry weather on clean substrate, allow for a 24hour drying time (unless otherwise specified) and the substrate must have a minimum
temperature of +5℃, preferably between 15℃ and 25℃ and a maximum of 55℃. To meet these standards and to ensure that the product reaches its maximum potential we carry out the above process.
