Great stuff, strange consistency and a little pricey

Verdict, the Suretherm goodbye mold Paint rally does give the same thermal insulation as 6mm of polystyrene lining. It pulls a lot on the first coat but the second seems to flow much nicer.

For

  • Prevents mold

  • Great thermal insulation

  • Hides imperfections

Against

  • A little pricey

  • Strange texture to get use to

  • Smells of ammonia

Suretherm is a revolutionary product, by providing insulation to areas where it may be missing or inadequate. Suretherm, alothough smelling of ammonia, doesn’t contain any biocides making it safer in the house.

The texture of the paint is similar to marshmallow fluff. This is due to the glass microspheres that maintain the temperature of treated substrates. The unfamiliar texture of the suretherm paint takes some getting use to, but don’t let this put you off. Because of the unique texture, I found the paint could mask shallow imperfections on the substrate.

2.5 lts of suretherm goodbye mold paint covers 10 – 12.5 m2 after 2 coats, although this doesn’t sound like a lot, the benefits make the price seem marginal.

Suretherm blows all completion out of the water, this is because I don’t think there is anything like it on the market. All other mold resistant paints or anti condensation paints either absorb the moisture or contain biocides.  

In conclusion I found suretherm a fantastic product that everyone should have in their arsenal. The speed of application and the fact it can be painted over makes this paint one of the best solutions to mold and moisture build up on walls and ceilings I have ever come across.
