Amphisilan NQG

Capillary-hydrophobic, mineral matt, silicone resin based façade paint. Innovative silicone resin binder combination with integrated nano-quartz particles for clean façades. Consistent further development of the Caparol Clean Concept.

Field of Application

Paint with essential benefit: Organically cross-linked nano-quartz particles form a compact, mineral-hard, three-dimensional quartz matrix structure against soiling and keep facades clean for a longer period.

The special silicone resin/binder combination provides water-repellent, highly vapour permeable paint coatings on exterior renders and mineral substrates, thus fast-drying after rainfall and when moist with dew. Also suitable for renovation of adherent silicate paints, matt dispersion/emulsion paints or synthetic renders and stable external thermal insulation composite systems (ETICS/EWI).

AmphiSilan NQG combines the advantages of approved emulsion paints and classic silicate paints. These properties make AmphiSilan NQG an ideal choice for coatings on listed buildings and lime plasters.

Material Properties

Low surface tension, no thermo-plasticity, non-film-forming, micro-porous. Forms a capillary active dry zone. Permeable to CO2   Resistant to aggressive air pollutants. Contains special pigments with photocatalytic effect. Reduces visible marks on dark colours which may occur on mechanically stressed surfaces.

Material Base / Vehicle

Combined silicone resin emulsion and new hybrid binder, on an inorganic/organic basis.

Packaging/Package Size

  • Standard Product: 12.5 litres
  • ColorExpress: 1.25 l, 2.5 l, 7.5 l and 12.5 litres



AmphiSilan NQG is tintable with AmphiSilan colourants. If more than one bucket is manually tinted, all product must be thoroughly mixed before use in order to avoid colour differences.

Quantities of 100 litres or more in individual colour shades can be ordered ready-tinted ex factory. 
AmphiSilan NQG can be tinted to all current colour collections via the ColorExpress tinting & mixing machine system (in limited shades). Check tinted product before applying in order to avoid colour differences. Always use paint of same batch, when applying on seamless surfaces.

Brilliant, intensive colour shades may have a lower opacity (hiding/covering power). It is therefore advisable to apply a first coat in a similar hiding pastel tint, based on white. Possibly a second finishing coat may be necessary.
