“The colour stays exactly the same!”
When renovating the Farr Wohnwelt furniture store in Remchingen, professional painter Ralf Roser was looking for a facade paint that would be suitable for various substrates, including concrete, timber, and zinc.
“In these scenarios, we love to use StoColor Dryonic®,” he says. “After all, we save so much time if we only have to use one paint.”
Ralf Roser also opted for integrated UV protection – SunBlock Technology from Sto. This will protect the shop's magenta colour shade for years to come, ensuring that the sun's rays don't make it fade. It was extremely important to the owner that the colour used matched the company's logo exactly.
