Parex has launched AquaSol, an acrylic finish with enhanced hydrophobic and photocatalytic technology. In addition to the features found in standard acrylic finishes, AquaSol also repels water, reflects UV rays and reduces pollution. AquaSol will optimize both environmental and aesthetic values throughout a building’s life cycle. Environmentally, the photocatalytic technology behind AquaSol helps breakdown atmospheric pollutants in the air and on the surface. AquaSol’s properties also help keep the wall surface temperatures cool as it reflects heat from the sun. Aesthetically, the exterior remains cleaner as dirt merely runs off the AquaSol surface when water hits the facade.
