Mazda Test Laboratory Leverkusen

The aluminium façade, approximately 20 years old, had never been thoroughly cleaned. The consequence: algae and lichen had taken hold on the north and west façades, the paint was affected and worn away on the roof areas.

Pre-treatment: Pre-washed with sponge and brush to remove as much greenery as possible, then rinsed with clean water and and the area worked over with Qualiprotec Cleaner Abrasive B, Qualiprotec Cleaner N, and the white façade pad. Finally the façade elements were rinsed with pressure washers, then leathered, dried and the seams and edges dried with pressurized air. Renovation: Particular attention was paid to those façade components where the surfaces were badly affected and roughened. The surface was therefore carefully sanded with graded abrasives and a double application of fluoropolymer paint to achieve an even result and a highly functional façade – for years to come.

Competences in this project

Nature and civilization leave their mark: many metallic façades are weathered, mossy and chalked – not a pretty sight. After renovation with Qualiprotec they shine like new again and are optimally protected for the next 20 years. Because Qualiprotec is not a product but a well-conceived system. The success formula is: four-month-test + façade cleaning + application of fluoropolymer paint + ten-year guarantee = maximum satisfaction. A pleasant side effect: after the renovation, basic and interval cleaning is needed far less often so you save good money!

  • Metallic façades
  • Renovate rather than replace
  • Fluoropolymer technology
  • Against smog, UV, moss, fungi and graffiti
  • 10-year guarantee and 20-year expected lifespan
  • Fewer interval cleaning operations

Raindrops on a lotus leaf – the water just rolls off. A fried egg in the pan – it slips off the Teflon without sticking. This is exactly how our Lumiflon fluoropolymer coatings work: they repel water, dirt particles do not adhere to the surface, moss and lichen cannot gain a foothold. The paints of the Vernicron FP premium line will protect your metallic façade for years, without losing gloss or color. This has been proved by the Florida test, the toughest paint testing system in the world.

  • AAMA 2605 with 10 years of Florida exposure
  • Wetting angle up to 100°
  • For coil coating, and application with spray, roller and brush
  • Technology based on Lumiflon
