NQG Technology

High performance for your facade!

Opt for facade paints with the new NQG formula! The ground-breaking NQG technology combines nano-quartz-grid structure with extraordinary colour brilliance. The intelligent drying management is new: Moisture spreads across the entire surface and evaporates at an extreme speed – just like a functional running shirt. Special benefit: Extremely fast drying reduces the risk of algae and fungal infestation even more.

The three-dimensional nano-quartz grid provides a special hardness with a clearly reduced soiling tendency. Adhesive agents do not swell, the protective function and brilliance of colour is retained. With NQG3 facades stay clean longer, dry quicker and retain their beautiful appearance longer. Never before has there been this much NQG performance for facades!

Secure protection against soiling

The proven NQG technology is based on a hard surface of a mineral nature that does not have a tendency to thermoplasticity and stays hard even under extreme exposure to the sun. This decisively prevents soiling as a result of dirt particles, fine dust and spores. Whatever does end up sticking to the facade will be washed off with the next rainfall. Adhesive agents do not swell, the protective function and brilliance of colour is retained.

Sunlight - the natural enemy of bright colors!

Anyone who has ever bought colorful garden furniture knows the effect. After a short time, colors become dull and matt. UV radiation is also dangerous for humans. Sun creams offer protection. In order to protect facades from UV radiation and fading, Caparol has developed innovative facade products with NQG technology that make facades extremely lightfast and color-stable.

Fine dust and dirt - visually and structurally problematic.

A good toothpaste not only cleans, it also prevents plaque and deposits. Caparol facade products with NQG technology do nothing else: Thanks to the innovative recipe and a grid structure in the nano range, fine dust and dirt particles cannot even adhere to the facade surfaces or are washed off with the next rain at the latest. The facade remains clean and beautiful over the long term.

Slowly drying moisture - a guarantee for facade damage!

Facade surfaces are exposed to high levels of moisture through external influences such as rain or snow. Similar to an impregnation spray, the moisture in Caparol facade products with NQG technology is better distributed and dries faster. Thanks to the interplay of better drying behavior and less dirt adhesion, algae and fungi hardly have a basis on which to grow.
