SILRES® BS Ensures Long-Term Attractive Appearance

With silicone resin emulsion paints based on SILRES® BS, facades can retain their appearance for a long time and the costs for renovation and repair work can be kept low. This is possible, because SILRES® BS forms a highly effective network with the mineral substrate, which simply lets rain, water splashes, condensation, mud and dirt roll off.

Furthermore, as the water beads off, it takes dirt particles with it, so that the facade gets cleaned in the rain. Last but not least, silicone resin emulsion paints based on SILRES® BS are resistant to acid rain and the ultraviolet and infrared components of sunlight, which allows them to retain their protection against water for a particularly long time. Since the pigments are firmly incorporated in the silicone-resin network, the facade does not bleach out or yellow.

Permanently attractive facades play a key part in retaining a building’s value.
