Painting is generally looked upon as merely a process of beautification of the structure. However there is more to it than mere beautification. Painting at regular intervals with the right paint protects the building from fungus, algae, UV rays, development of vegetation, cleans the building, fills the cracks & waterproofs the surface. Selection of the right kind of paint not only decides the look but also the overall life of the structure, it protects the surface of the building from the vagaries & major maintenance expenditure, which eventually, takes away the originality of the structure & weakens it. Therefore painting needs to be viewed seriously.
Almost all façades have the issues of hairline cracks & porosity spots. These are the major weak areas or rather sources of water seepage. If these are not timely & properly attended, lead to deterioration of the external surface & eventually the structural members due to the deep penetration of water.
In any air conditioned premise, due to regular use of A.C. condensation (i.e sweating of walls) occurs on the internal walls .This further leads to fungus & algae formation on the walls.To prevent this NTP has developed a specialized coating called as anti condensation coating.
