proPERLA® Facade Coating is a unique treatment technology. It creates self cleaning and super hydrophobic facades, without affecting its breathability.
Coatings incorporating silane resin technology have been available for over 25 years and are actually the fastest growing exterior coating systems in Europe. All this expertise has been combined with the latest technology. And the result is impressive!
- Reduces rain penetration
- Extremely water repellent
- Improves thermal efficiency
- Will allow the building to breathe
- Self cleaning like a lotus leaf
- 15-20 year lifespan
- Can be used directly on most masonry substrates
You will recognise the excellent water repellent properties by its beading behavior. It will make the masonry dry and extremely resistant to biological hazards, mould, mildew,etc. A dry masonry will improve the thermal resistance, prevent frost damage and reduce the growth of microbial spores.
The masonry is able to breathe and will be permeable to water vapour. Air and moisture pass through from one side to the other. A breathing masonry will improve the thermal conductivity and insulation properties. Just a 5% content of damp in cavity wall insulation or other building materials can lower the thermal resistance by up to 50%.
Dirt particles are unable to obtain a hold on the proPERLA® coated facade and will simply flow off with rainfall. The façade remains clean and attractive, even on sides which are particularly exposed to the weather like on the north-facing side or facades in shade, as well as in areas with high air humidity or sea salt penetrated air.
Your coated masonry will be protected against the destructive impact of adverse weather conditions (sun, acid rain, salt spray, smog etc). It will be weather protected and colour stable for many years.
For problems with the surface absorption see our primer.
proPERLA® Primer is a special water-based primer for proPERLA® Facade Coatings with solidifying effect and high penetration depth. It is diffusively and adherent and only suitable for porous surfaces.
Equalizing priming coats for mineral surfaces such as lime, cement, plaster, limestone, concrete, light weight concrete, brick, plasterboard, etc. Application can also be done in poorly ventilated spaces, inclusively where food is stored.

Damp walls are thermal bridges and are ineffective in terms of thermal conductivity
Old facades and masonry are not only unsightly, moisture and mould can penetrate into the interior and can cause property owners and pets considerable health damage.
A facade cleaning can be done in different ways. On the one hand, many different cleaning agents exist. On the other hand, a large variety of machines such as high-pressure cleaners or steam jets, etc. are available. A modern type of facade maintenance is using dry ice. It is proven that the most aggressive option is sandblasting and at the same time also the more expensive solution.
The frequency of façade cleaning and coatings is determined by the selected system. Exactly at this point our applicators recommend self cleaning exterior coatings from proPERLA®. Customer satisfaction has top priority.
How does the proPERLA®-system work?
After the facade cleaning loose plaster and masonry needs to be removed and repaired. If the surface is unpainted and porous, it is recommended to apply proPERLA® primer, a high quality colour primer. Finally, the facade is repainted and your home is fully protected again against the impact of sun, UV-rays, smog, etc.
For a brick wall the process is slightly different. It is cleaned mechanically in advance with high pressure. Lichens, moss and algae need to be completely removed. Once the wall is dry defective mortar joints and loose bricks need to be repaired accordingly. The masonry is ready to be treated with proPERLA® MASONRY CREME. The result will be impressive and the treatment will protect your masonry for more than 20 years.
Professional facade cleaning means that the need for the next treatment can be delayed as long as possible. With proPERLA® you enjoy this advantage. Ask our specialists. They will be pleased to support you with tailor-made solutions and a convincing marketing concept at a fair price. Transform costs for facade cleaning in an investment in your home. With proPERLA® - the ultimate weather protection!
