decorative paint / facade / exterior / polymer
Many historic façades have been recently restored to their former glory in St. Petersburg, Russia, including a number of palaces and churches which are officially recognized as heritage sites. BASF contributed to these renovations by producing the raw materials used to restore the façades and interior decoration. Special paints containing Acronal® polymer dispersions in the form of binders, pigments and pigment preparations, such as Heliogen® and Sicotan®, protect the façades against weathering, UV radiation and air pollution. The magnificent façade of the Petershof Grand Palace, St. Petersburg, is resplendent once more thanks to dispersions and paint pigments from BASF.
