Architects and Designers - Paint FAQs

  • Q: You claim that your coating products are Eco-friendly. How can I be sure and how can I benefit of it? +

    A: Yes! All Flügger products are fully ecologically friendly and promote sustainable building design and construction. All the Flügger products are water based and non-toxic, include no lead or other heavy metals and are totally free of harmful APEO chemicals. Because of all this, the VOC level is zero (US) to low (EU) and there are no strong chemical and no solvent odors. Flügger production is covered by ISO 14001 Environmental standard system from material extract to the end product to ensure environmental protection as much as possible. As Flügger products also have EU Ecolabel and they are LEED practicable, an Architect/Designer can get additional rating points by using them, also in BERDE ratings in near future.
  • Q: How long does your product last until surfaces need to be re-painted? +

    A: Much of this depends on the substrate and correct application. Flügger Outdoor products are self-cleaning resisting aerial dirt and pollution as well as have great resistance to UV. By using Flügger products, you can safely design even the bright colors and be sure they are vivid as new even after many years. You can expect the coatings to last very long. In case our own Specialist Application Team will do the application, we can give assurances of the quality even up to five years.

  • Q: How does Flügger's minimum 98% hiding power help with my project? +

    A: Flügger uses Modern Technology and the best raw materials which give a great hiding power. It is now possible to use high quality coating system instead of cheaper per liter solutions as the superior hiding power (together with excellent spread rate) makes cost per square meter very competitive in comparison with traditional paints and application techniques.
  • Q: How does Flügger's excellent spread rate help with my project? +

    A: One liter Flügger paint covers even 40% more surface than traditional paints. This makes these paints significantly more economical to use in comparison with traditional paints and application techniques. Painters work becomes 40% more efficient, making the work faster and saving the labor costs and calendar time.

    A: Our prices start from 20 Pesos per liter, but we would normally like to quote the entire project to be able to compute the total cost for square meter. Flügger products have an excellent hiding power and spread rate and we only need three coatings at any given time, our total cost will be very competitive. In addition to this, the ongoing maintenance costs and the entire building life-span cost and environmental load are very competitive.
  • Q: What is computerized tinting system and why is it important? +
