This Paper summarises the pressures driving the changes in coatings technology and, based on data from BRE projects, describes the properties and performance of these new materials. It presents this complex technology in a readily understood from that will be of interest to all users of coatings for construction applications, including architects, specifiers, painting contractors and householders.
