Astec Exterior Coatings

  1. 1. Tough yet attractive One coating that does it all! Most paints are merely colored wall coverings, with llm1ted protective qualities. Astec exterior coatings are much more. By incorporat- ing ceramic insulating particles, Astec provides a durable thermal barrier equal to several inches of other types of insulation. These ceramic particles, combined with a sophisticated blend of plastics, terpolymers, weatherproofers, anti-shrinkage materials, and other agents, make Astec coatings highly resistant to sun, water and pollution. It resists cracking, peeling or blistering, providing a tough protective exterior that stays beautiful year alter year. The paint that insulates As an exterior or interior wall coat- ing, Astec offers amazing insulating qualities... helping to cut heating costs in winter, cooling costs in summer. Weatherproof, waterproof, corro- sion proof - proof positive. Unlike ordinary paints, Astec exterior coat- ings take a beating. They're highly resistant to harsh weather, ultraviolet rays, atmospheric pollution, corro- sion and condensation. Test results and actual applications have proven Astec is virtually unaffected by wind- driven rain, chemical pollutants, hot and cold cycles, sand abrasion, and fungus, to name a few. These coatings are highly elastic, and bond to virtually any material - metal, wood, cement, brick, blocks, asphalt, and other difficult surfaces. They're water-based, can be applied with a brush, roller or spray, and dry to a rich, beautifulllnen, matte finish. NOle: Specllic appUcatlon inslructlons avatlable [rom manufacturer.
  2. 2. Don't just take our word for it "Last August we protected our historical research library building with Astec waterproofing and found that we are no longer experiencing high humidity or salt buildup... Our coliection is irreplaceable and we did quite a thorough search before deciding on the Astec system ... We are entirely pleased with the results. " - Page Edwards, Jr., Director S/. Augustine Historical Society "... The cooling is easily applied, can be tinted to any color desired and is suitable for any type of building material... The cooling is unquestionably an effective and cost~tficient way to insulate build· ings and slili maintain an attractive appearance... " - James N. Amend, Cap/. United States Air Force, Readiness and Support Directorate of Civil Engineering Astec Ceramic Coatings provide more benefits and help solve more prolr lerns than anlJ other single coating. Consider its quality, durabilitlJ and energy-saving properties ...Then add a lO·lJear limited warranty, and 1J0u have a coating that's hard to beat. Discover the Astec advantage.
