Description

Parex Paraguard AG – Water Resistant Coating

Parex Paraguard AG – Water Resistant Coating. It is water based, and provides a weatherproof, lotus leaf effect, water resistant surface to a range of render, masonry and timber substrates. Paraguard AG is safe to the environment and to those using it. The product may be applied by brush, lambswool roller or airless spray gun to achieve a non-staining, clear, natural coating which is easily cleaned. The product is repellent to the following; water, dirt, oil, grease, graffiti, atmospheric pollutants and vehicle fumes. Paraguard AG is pre-packaged and ready for on-site use. The product is non sacrificial, so once cleaned, will not need to be re-coated. Aesthetically, the exterior remains cleaner as dirt merely runs off the surface whenever water hits the facade. Parguard AG finish is specially formulated with exceptional hydrophobic properties. Buildings specified with Parauguard AG finish are cleaned time and time again with natural rain water. As water hits the surface, it simply beads off the exterior and takes any dirt, grime or soil in its path with it. Imagine the reduced maintenance costs Parauguard AG can provide. The hydrophobic qualities also make the surface more resistant to mould, algae and mildew. Overall, buildings will remain clean, dry and aesthetically pleasing for years to come.
