Solutions for cladding with Crown Trade Protective Coatings

Crown Trade Fast Drying Cladding Finish provides an economical and effective way to refurbish and protect buildings at a masterstroke.

From the Crown Trade Protective Coatings range, Fast Drying Cladding Finish has been specifically developed to adhere to pre-coated and weathered metal cladding and other external features that have become dull and discoloured over time.

The water-based, single pack coating breathes new life into tired exteriors - transforming metal cladded surfaces with an easy to achieve refurbishment process that offers outstanding protection against the elements.

It can be used to refurbish buildings in a wide-range of environments including retail sites, sports halls and warehouses. Once completed, the system offers surface protection and looks good for up to eight years.

There is also an extensive colour choice. By offering a range choices of shades, existing areas can usually be accurately matched up if a complete colour change is not required – offering a cost effective refurbishment solution.

The sheer amount of colours available also means the system offers additional opportunities to introduce a high impact rebranding programme.

This is particularly appealing for projects such as football stadia and other buildings where colour is an important part of the overall visual identity.

Usman Akhtar, Crown Paints Specification Sector Support Manager, said: 

“The system can be applied under a straightforward process, with no special application techniques or tools required.

“Two easy-to-apply coats can quickly transform cladding and other external features that have become weathered, dull and discoloured over time, bringing exterior metal cladding back to pristine condition.

“Crown Trade Protective Coatings High Build Rust Inhibiting Metal Primer should also be applied, to protect any bare exposed metal from corrosion, before applying the Crown Trade Fast Drying Cladding Finish. This includes areas where the existing paint system has failed and exposed surfaces have started to appear.

“The many benefits of the system make it particularly appealing to FMs, property managers and estate managers operating in both commercial and industrial sectors.”
