Abstrakt

The influence of a nano-particle addition on the self-cleaning properties of exterior paints for External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems is analyzed. The effect of UV radiation on the color change of paints containing normal pigments and the photo-catalyst titanium dioxide is laboratory tested. To evaluate self-cleaning properties of the paints and their color change due to accelerated weathering processes spectro-photometric tests were performed.
