Properla is an incredible product that benefits many homeowners in the UK. This paint or cream is applied to the external walls of the home and provides a layer of insulation.

The insulation helps to prevent heat loss, problems caused by damp and mould and protects the walls from dirt and damage.

Properla is a miracle product, but not all homes are the same. Many people contact Home Logic and ask – can Properla be used on metal surfaces and frames too? We have the answers, and we’re here to share them in the following article…

Where Can Properla Paint Be Used?

The only place suitable for Properla is untreated and absorbent exteriors, such as: bricks, painted masonry and pebbledash.

If you have brick work there is a good chance that application of this clever insulator will be possible, but any metal parts will not be treated.

What Does Properla Insulating Paint Do?

You now know the answer to the question – can Properla be used on metal surfaces – but do you know what Properla does? Let’s look at why it is so beneficial for home owners.

  1. Properla is an insulating product. That means it will improve the thermal capabilities of the home, enabling it to retain the heat created inside, and stopping it from escaping through the walls.
  2. The insulating treatment still allows the property to breathe as it needs to. Older insulating products stopped the walls from allowing moisture to escape. This caused major problems with damp, mildew and mould. These issues damaged the property, caused health problems and resulted in costly repairs. Unfortunately, some modern-day insulation products can cause the same problem if they’re incorrectly applied. With Properla, the property is protected, while being able to breathe after a single layer is applied to the untreated, absorbent surface.
  3. Properla reduces the amount home owners spend on their energy. The significantly reduced heat loss and moisture protection saves money. The expense of heating the home is reduced as the heat cannot easily escape. Other saving benefits include: remove the risk of damp and mould damage, along with total protection from frost damage.
  4. The home is protected from dirt and surface breakdown. Applying Properla is a great idea as it protects the home from dirt, and it’s naturally water repellent. The outside of the properly will look fantastic for years to come. In fact, your masonry will be protected for up to 20 years; there’s no need to repaint, to clean, or to reapply it.
  5. Don’t just go on the customer reviews, listen to the experts. Properla meets all current industry standards, and has the certificates to prove it. This includes the ISO EN 15148:2002, guaranteeing the quality level and your satisfaction.

How Can Properla Stop Heat Loss?

Buildings that have damp exterior walls are unable to insulate effectively. The pores of the brickwork collect the moisture, allowing heat to move through them, and ultimately escape from the room.

Dry walls don’t allow the movement of heat, giving it the only option of remaining inside the room. The dry walls stop heat loss, resulting in less energy expenditure for the homeowner.
