Mercedes-Benz Museum

The Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart winds its way 47 metres upwards like a double helix. The unique façade of steel, sheet metal and glass reflects the innovative power, solidity and timeless design of the oldest car brand in the world. The new landmark was designed by UNStudio. Thanks to our Color Design, Mercedes-Benz is using Monopol Colors for their silver worldwide, including for Formula 1.

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.
