New additions to Sto’s intelligent façade paints

Housing Wed, Mar 11, 2020 2:49 PM

The introduction of two new products has extended the range of applications that can now benefit from the StoColor Dryonic family of iQ - Intelligent Technology - façade paints. StoColor

Dryonic S and StoColor Dryonic Wood have joined the original StoColor Dryonic G façade paint to provide a wide range of solutions that protect all types of façade finish from the effects of weathering and environmental attack.

The StoColor Dryonic façade paint is the result of over 20 years of intensive research by Sto into the field of biomimetics, where new products and solutions are inspired by principles from the natural world.

The products all feature Sto’s Dryonic technology. This creates a façade surface which replicates that found on the body of a particular type of desert-living beetle. In the same way that this surface channels away moisture falling onto the beetle to provide drinking water, a Sto Dryonic surface promotes fast and efficient drainage of water, allowing the surface to dry rapidly and greatly inhibiting the appearance of algae, fungus and unsightly marks.

The original StoColor Dryonic G paint offers a highly-effective solution for the protection of façades. Compatible with virtually all conventional substrates it can be used on render, concrete, brick, metal or plastic, and creates a resilient, scuff-resistant surface. It has an innovative, water permeable and alkali-resistant formulation which provides a tough, resilient surface.

StoColor Dryonic G also offers excellent durability and outstanding colour stability. This opens up new horizons for the creation of impressive façades which will keep their good looks well into the future, despite requiring less frequent cleaning and maintenance than façades finished with conventional products.

StoColor Dryonic S has now been added to the Dryonic family, and this allows even intense colours with sensitive pigments to retain their colour over time. It combines the normal Dryonic fast-drying capabilities with SunBlock technology that protects the façade against the damaging effects of the sun’s UV rays. It also enables dark or highly pigmented colours to be used on insulated facades, as it is available with Sto’s X-black technology. This keeps surface temperatures low even when the façade is exposed to solar radiation, thus protecting against thermal expansion and movement which can cause cracking and damage to the render.

Compatible with virtually any type of substrate, it has a high level of mechanical resistance, providing a long-lasting coating which retains the surface texture, and is also water vapour permeable.

Completing the expanded Dryonic family is StoColor Dryonic Wood, which has been specially developed to protect timber surfaces against fungal attack and discoloration, even in humid environmental conditions. It also features Sto’s SunBlock Technology which protects against aggressive UV radiation, and X-black Technology which protects the timber when surface temperatures start to rise. StoColor Dryonic Wood has an ‘isolating’ effect on the surface which retains the texture of the timber, while protecting against harmful constituent elements.

All StoColor Dryonic façade paints are available in a whole spectrum of colours, offering great design possibilities, whilst providing optimum resistance to weathering or algae and fungal attack.
