Surfaces of high insulated facades tended to become covered with algae and limescale deposits. The ageing process of surfaces is accelerated. So normal facade surfaces become unsightly after just a few years.
Optional CERASHIELD facade plates (special designs) can be equiped with CERACLEAN BIOACTIV. An effective protection against algae and limescale deposits, organic dirt and surface-aging.
CERACLEAN BIOACTIV is a transparent, durable and resistant on-line coating that lasts the lifetime of the facade. It is permanently baked onto the external CERASHIELD surface in a high temperature manufacturing process by 1,200 °C.
Its self-cleaning properties make it ideal for use in hard-to-reach places that are difficult to clean. CERACLEAN BIOAKTIV the dual-action self-cleaning coating has revolutionary photo-catalytic and hydrophilic properties, and works in two stages:
1. Photo-catalytic effect
The coating reacts with natural daylight to break down and loosen organic dirt.
2. Hydrophilic effect
When it rains, instead of forming droplets, the water spreads evenly over the facade surface, helping to wash away any dirt and reduce streaking. During long dry spells the facade can be cleaned by simply hosing it down with clear water.
Organic dirt breaks down and washs away when it rains.
The self-cleaning properties of CERACLEAN BIOACTIV reduce the need of manual cleaning, saving water and eliminating potentially harmful run-off from expensive detergents, also increasing personal safety. It works even on cloudy days and during the night.
A revolutionary benefit and USP for back ventilated facades!
CERASHIELD facade solutions are highly durable for the lifetime of your building.
