A coating generally has two functions: on the one hand, it must protect the building substance, and with its colourfulness must also protect the architecture. This is why it is so important to consciously and carefully choose the paint – especially if the task involves the restoration or renovation of a historical building. Plus: In order to maintain the authenticity of a building, materials should be employed that were used at the time the building was constructed.
With the Histolith programme, Caparol offers several monument-capable paint materials that render authentic coatings in terms of material as well as colourfulness. And the number is growing: Because the product program of Histolith is constantly being further developed – for the protection of our cultural hertitage.
Within the framework of Denkmal 2010, Europe's trade fair for historical monument preservation, restoration and old-building renovation, Caparol received the gold medal.
