Kolor Gard Architectural Coatings incorporate fade resistant pigmentation technology, a unique pigmentation system engineered to enhance colour fastness properties (resistance to fading) of bright or deep mass tone coloured Architectural Coating products. Kolor Gard Architectural Coatings integrate specially formulated waterborne resins with high performance ultraviolet resistant colourants to lock-in colour particles throughout the depth of coating products. Along with colour retention this unique technology also enhances durability and crack resistance.
- Improves colour fastness/colour retention (no colour change under ultraviolet rays).
- Improves durability, hiding power and flexibility of exterior coatings.
- Water resistive, breathable coating reduces maintenance and improves life cycle costs.
- Improves resistance to cracking.
Kolor Gard Architectural Coatings are highly recommended when bright mass tone colours such as red, orange, blue, green, black, yellow, purple and violet are incorporated into the colour design of exterior building finishes. Kolor Gard Architectural Coatings are commonly applied over Quantum Select, Equalite or EW-17 Exterior Insulation Finish Systems. Durex Kolor Gard is available in a roller applied top coat which can be pigmented to all colours of our Durex Colour Selection Guide or to match almost any custom accent colour. Kolor Gard Pigmentation Technology is also available as an integral component to our Pebblefloat, Marblecoat 1.0 and Marblecoat 1.5, Rasato, Rustico and Sandstone Architectural Finishes.
