Plaster, string and brick facades
The term facade could not be more general, but it outlines pretty much everything in construction that describes the design of the outward appearance of an object. Therefore, it is also difficult to make general statements about such a complex area. We have put together some possible scenarios for you and want to show the possibilities in particular, without taking into consideration your individual case concretely. If you are therefore uncertain and need advice, please don't hesitate contact us.
If a house has been newly built or a house wall has been reovated, the joy is it mostly large – but in some cases only for a short time, depending on how the works were carried out and what materials were used. Assuming that the technical work was done correctly, over the time environmenal influences affect the wall which creates (at best) a visual impairment, or even a functional drawback.
Facades with lotus effect
Especially open-pored plaster is vulnerable to pollution of any kind: rain affects it, moss and algae form on the facade, often on the "weather side", or if areas are completely in the shade. Dust and soot in the city or in highly industrialized regions is deposited on the facade and clouds the once strong, pure impression. No question, also an impairment of property. The laminar use of nanotechnology allows to significantly mitigate these phenomena. This means first that dirt particles or organic substances loose their hold on the plaster and so can not disfigure it. Even water won't no longer soak into and cleanes the facade by the way, a work that is normally not feasible without a scaffold. Thus, it is worthwhile to consider about a nano coating already when planning a renovation. This will save costs for preparatory actions and is an investment for long term cost advantages.
Today it is a trend in architectural finishes to mix nano-particles into wall dye. It makes sense, because during the color renewal a protective layer is applied simultaneously. The Caparol's technology with its nano-quartz-lattice is a leader in this segment. But: not every painted exterior wall is treated in that way, so there is a real privilege for supplementary offers on conventional colors.
This point is the niche for the products of nanoquartz because it does not have to be a complete repainting in any case. Especially when only one or two years after a renovation have passed, a subsequent coating with our products can be quite useful. In the end is one question in the air: what is cheaper? We like to submit our non-binding offer, respecting your individual requirements.
Depending on the region, bricks are a popular design element in home building. They also provide additional protection for the house wall from the weather. Depending on the nature of the clinker, its purification is more or less consuming. Clinker with a smooth finish (similar to a glazed tile) is still relatively easy to clean, but more difficult for open-pored variants. It is similar to plaster or stone. All kinds of particles from the air lay themselves onto the wall and let in become always unsightly over the years. We provide you with our products and our first-class service the opportunity to protect your investment for many years.
Another separate issue: graffiti protection. There are already effective instruments to remove unwanted graffiti. This is still relatively easy on smooth surfaces such as shop windows or glass facades. However, in materials, in which the substance soaks in, as stones, clinker or plasters, it is particularly difficult. If a nano coating is applied, the graffiti has a less contact surface. It will connect though, however, on the facade no fog will remain after cleaning – a clear added value, the re-paint remains spared. Theoretically it is possible, to spray up to ten times onto a facade with graffiti and then remove it, leaving no traces. Especially in big cities or in disadvantaged neighborhoods, every year hundreds of millions arise in property damage. So it pays off to do prevention and to protect the facade against vandalism.
