Processing water back to the atmosphere is key to the longevity of historic masonry structures, and also lends to the beauty and functionality of all "green" buildings. Water vapor is absorbed and dispersed across surface area and back to the atmosphere by the complete Ecologic™ Plaster System. This encourages a comfortable indoor air quality and protects from allowing the prolonged saturation of substrates. The Ecologic™ Plaster System has less cracking due to its excellent modulus of elasticity which allows for movement with minimal control joint engineering required. The complete Ecologic™ Plaster System, which includes Ecologic™ Plaster TOPCOAT™, continues to absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere throughout its life cycle, further reducing its carbon footprint.
