  • Does Not Absorb Dust
    • When dust is absorbed by a surface it results in the creation of a reversed electrical load otherwise known as static electricity which attracts more dust particles in the air to the surface. In different tests conducted around the world it has been found that cellulose fires create zero static electrical load. As Belka is made from a combination of natural fires including cotton and cellulose fires it has anti static properties that will not absorb or attract dust, allow insects to settle on the surface or allow mildew to form. This is because the cellulose and cotton fires absorb any moisture in the air stopping the fires from forming static electricity and subsequently absorb or attract dust.
  • Does not require Surface Preparation
    • In the past a wall coating could not be applied to a surface until that surface had been covered with a special foundation such as plaster, cement or gyprock. Now with Belka there is no need for this step as it can be applied directly onto brick work or any surface saving you time in application and preparation as well as money. Belka can be applied directly onto plaster, cement, tiles, wood, metal, glass and all painted surfaces without any surface preparation. It will also cover surface flaws such as unevenness, holes, gaps and cracks – just apply Belka straight over them. The high stability and elasticity of Belka means that once covered these surface flaws will not re-appear. Even better Belka requires only one coat for a professional finish that will stand the test of time.
  • Is Environmentally Friendly
    • Belka has been designed to support the worldwide move towards “green building” by using natural materials as the basis of the product. Designed for modern living Belka offers you an environmentally aware solution to covering your walls and ceilings. Belka helps you to bring the beauty and benefits of nature to your walls and ceilings by using premium recyclable and biodegradable ingredients that are drawn from the world of nature.

      Belka is made from a combination of natural fires including cotton and cellulose as well as decorative additives also taken from nature. Belka contains no heavy metals, chemical contaminants or solvents and produces no chemical vapours during mixing or application making it safe for both the environment and human contact. Also once applied to your wall or ceiling Belka will not release any sediment or emissions. Sophisticated, contemporary and environmentally aware the Belka concept is like no other.
  • Reduces Sound Reflection
    • Sound is part of our everyday sensory experience and we seldom take the time to think about the characteristics, behaviours and effects of sound. Like any wave, a sound wave doesn't just stop when it reaches an obstacle in its path. A sound wave will reflect off the obstacle, diffract around the obstacle or transmit and refract into the obstacle. It has also been found that when a sound wave comes into contact with a hard smooth surface it will almost always be reflected with little absorption.

      For this reason, acoustically minded builders around the world working with flat expanses have welcomed Belka as an alternative to the standard hard smooth materials used to coat walls and ceilings. Due to the textured finish and composition of Belka the majority of sound waves that come into contact with it rather than being reflected are absorbed (up to 41%) and the rest diffused. This product feature has helped builders to soften surfaces to reduce echo and inhibit the passage of sound from one area to another. It is this quality that makes Belka the perfect choice for walls and ceilings in sound recording studios, gymnasiums and indoor recreational facilities, children’s rooms and medical facilities.
  • Maintains Thermal Balance
    • Every year millions of dollars are spent on heating and cooling homes and offices. At Belka Australia we are committed to assisting you to make smarter building choices by offering you a wall coating solution that takes performance, versatility and energy saving to a whole new level. When applied to a surface Belka acts as an additional level of insulation providing you with a way to control the transmission of temperature through the walls and ceilings keeping it cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

      When Belka is applied to a surface in the correct thickness it will provide a thermal barrier that will completely seal any gaps and crevices and protect against draughts which account for up to 25 per cent of heat loss from a room in winter. It also works to prevent the summer heat from the outside entering a room through its walls. Because Belka is made of cotton and cellulose fires that have a natural tendency to absorb moisture it also helps to eliminate moisture problems such as condensation.
  • Is Resistant Against Fire
    • The period of resistance against fire of a building is determined by the physical components of a building in particular the performance of materials and coatings used on walls, ceilings, doors, windows and roofs. With the ultimate goal of enhancing fire resistance Belka has undergone extensive product research and development to meet this objective. Belka has been tested for fire resistance and flammability in Australia, Europe and Dubai and has achieved the highest classification for fire resistance in each country. Tests in Australia have shown that Belka has a very low heat and smoke release rate of less than 50kw/m2. According to the Australian Building Codes Board Belka is classified as a group 1 material. This makes Belka an ideal coating choice as a “fire friendly” wall and ceiling coating.
  • Has High Elasticity
    • In building and construction elasticity is the ability of a product to expand and contract without damage to or changes in its appearance or level of performance. Expansion and contraction are usually caused by temperature and humidity fluctuations. Because of the fibrous nature of Belka it has high elasticity and is not affected by expansion or contraction of the surface it is applied on. Once Belka is applied to a surface it will successfully cover surface flaws such as unevenness, holes, gaps and cracks … just apply Belka straight over them. The high stability and elasticity of Belka also means that once covered these surface flaws will not re-appear.
  • Belka is Washable
    • Designed to stand up to the rigours of daily wear and tear Belka is highly impact and stain resistant and is suitable for surfaces in high use areas. It is a highly stable product made from premium ingredients so it will not discolour or retain odours. So if necessary Belka can be easily cleaned with carpet shampoo and a damp cloth without any concerns to the finish at all.
  • Belka is Human Friendly
    • Belka has been designed and constructed to support the demand for the worldwide demand towards the wider use of building materials that are based on more natural ingredients that are both environmentally friendly as well as compatible with and safe for human contact. Belka does not contain solvents, chemical contaminants or heavy metals or chemicals such as: Cadmium (Cd), Chlorine (Cl), Copper (Cu), Cobalt (Co), Arsenic (As), Zinc (Zn), Mercury (Hg), Lead (Pb) or formaldehyde. All plant fires used in Belka have been tested and are completely safe for human contact. The HH: HP ratio of Belka due to its solvency in water is 7 times. Belka’s has been carefully selected and precisely combined to ensure that it is compact and will bond securely to the surface eliminating the possibility of the release of residue over time.
  • Reduces Reflection of Light
    • The lighting in a room has a large impact on setting the tone for how we feel about it. Choosing the right type of wall and ceiling coating is critical for establishing the kind of mood we want to establish. Light reflection occurs when light waves make contact with a surface that does not absorb the radiating energy that is produced by them and the waves are bounced back away from that surface.

      The reflection of light is very predictable. When a light wave makes contact with a smooth surface it is bounced directly back at the source. But when a light wave makes contact with a rough or textured surface like Belka the reflected beam is broken up into many light waves that are scattered or diffused in all directions. In a room, the diffused light beams result in softer more natural lighting, reduced light intensity, the reduction or elimination of shadows, enhancement of the rooms décor or aesthetic appeal and a feeling of tranquility that invites relaxation.
