Fabulous versatility of colors and surfaces
Fontefacade is a new eco-friendly acrylate paint for fibre.cement flat sheets
Fiber-cement flat sheets are a modern, composite building and construction material. Nowadays, they are widely used for facades, partition walls, humid facilities, plinths and balcony railings. Although they are highly prized for their strength and durability, fiber-cement flat sheets are initially gray in color. Tikkurila has responded by developing a fast-drying, one-component water-borne painting system – Fontefacade – to make fiber-cement flat sheets a ‘must-have’ material for architects and designers.
Fontefacade - coating systems
The painting system includes the newest coating technology for industrial application, which makes more efficient use of coating lines. What is more, an outstanding, new water-borne technology markedly cuts volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions in the production process.
One or two layers of the one-component fast-drying paints with a wet film thinkness up to 300g/m2:
Fontefacade SC 10 A and C bases (airless or air-assisted airless spraying)
Fontefacade SC 50 A and C bases (airless or air-assisted airless spraying)
Fontefacade CC 30 A, C and MET (metallic) bases (curtain coating).
All the products have been tested and pased through:
• Cold-check 150 cycles test (cycly: 6h in -18⁰C/+18⁰C)
• Weathering resistance (QUV/Xenon) test (acc. to ISO 4892-2)
• Hot dip immersion test (100⁰C/30min)
• Salt water immersion test (2%salt/28 days)
• Pull-off Adhesion test (acc. to EN 1542).
Wide range of colors and surfaces with excellent durability
Fiber-cement flat sheets can be treated to create a range of surface models; either a fully coated opaque version or a semi-transparent one. This can be achieved using a special combination of paint and colorant technology. Fontefacade paints have A, C and MET (metallic) bases and can be tinted in thousands of various colors using Avatint colorants.
Also special structural surfaces are available with new Fontefacade paints.
The fabulous versatility of this wide range of colors and surfaces forms the basis of architectural-façade masterpieces.
