The renowned Excelsior Hotel at Heathrow Airport, viewed by millions of people each year, was in need of external redecoration. A number of factors needed to be fulfilled, not least of which was for the chosen system to possess exceptional obliteration properties that would provide a pleasing, uniform finish. An extremely thorough assessment of potential products was instigated, which, combined with site inspections and surveys, resulted in Funcosil LA Silicone Paint being recommended.
The long-term durability of this special facade protective system, together with its many other attributes, culminated in this decision.
Various substrates such as ring beam, concrete panels and mosaic tiles were treated with Funcosil Impregnation Primer followed by two finishing coats of Funcosil LA Silicone Paint. The impregnation provided excellent adhesion for the final coats as well as strengthening the surface where required.
