It is strongly recommended that trained and skilled applicators are employed to apply this specialist, textured product range.

Triplon Low Maintenance Paint System

1 Feb

TRIPLON: A durable, self-cleansing, low maintenance paint system

TRIPLON is the Rolls Royce of low maintenance coatings. It is ideal for coastal buildings or high-rises that need a robust, low maintenance paint solution.

Triplon is a self-cleaning paint system for harsh climatic conditions and environmentally challenging applications. It is often applied to high rise buildings in the CBD or to buildings near the coast.

Triplon was used to coat the prestigious Marina Apartments situated at the V&A Waterfront close to the CBD in Cape Town. The apartment buildings needed a durable, long-term coatings solution that would endure both coastal weather and urban air pollutants.

“Midas has responded to the needs of the construction industry with a range of specialist coatings, each addressing a different need. The Triplon 2000 system is unique”, says Mike Vadas, MD of Midas Earthcote.

The Triplon 2000 low maintenance exterior coating system can be supplied in either a smooth or a profiled finish and can be custom mixed in any colour. Triplon 2000P is often used to cover hairline cracks and slight surface defects, or for aesthetic reasons.

“This is a paint system that not only lasts, but also does a great job of covering hairline cracks and reducing mildew and fungal growth, while providing uniquely high UV resistance”, says Vadas.

Triplon comes with a guarantee of up to 15 years and is water-resistance, dirt-resistance and fungi-resistant. “The system … stays clean and good looking for many years longer than most regular coatings”, says Vadas.

Triplon is currently one of Midas Paints’ highest-demand products, which is understandable due to its ultra-low maintenance, self-cleaning, anti-microbial and durability factors.

Product Application:
Prepare surfaces thoroughly; apply one primer coat of Triplon 2000S reduced 10% with Triplon Thinners followed by two finishing coats of Triplon. Note: Triplon 2000P must be over-coated with Triplon 2000S . Strictly follow all the manufacturer’s instructions and allow the correct drying times between coats.

The Green Filter Paint Evaluator

GREEN FILTER: Evaluating the VOC content of your paint

AS part of the new Green Revolution, it’s become increasingly important to rethink all aspects of how we choose to live. This includes evaluating how we choose to paint our homes.

Conventional paint contains some nasty stuff – chemicals that are damaging to the environment and to our health. Glycol, APEO and Formaldehyde are all potentially hazardous chemical ingredients that are conventionally used as drying time retarders, preservatives and stabilisers.

These chemicals are known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and can be irritating to the eyes and nose and damaging to the lungs. They also contribute to poor air quality.

The entire product range at Midas is called Envirolite. Each and every one of these products are vetted through the green filter. Paint & Place stores throughout South Africa provide these green filters, which can be used to evaluate your paint before purchase.

Every tin of Paint & Place paint will have a label on it stipulating whether the paint contains Zero VOC, Minimal VOC, Low VOC or Medium VOC, allowing you to make an environmentally conscious choice. Lookout for these on your next visit. To find a Paint & Place near you, try using our Store Locator.

Franschhoek welcomes new Paint&Place

14 Dec

OPENING: Franschhoek welcomes a new Paint&Place to the Village Artisan

FRANSCHHOEK is known by many as the food and wine capital of the country. It hosts more award-winning restaurants than anywhere else in South Africa. Once a sleepy country retreat, the village of Franschhoek began experiencing a boom since the 1990s. Today it appeals to an audience of lifestyle lovers, cultural enthusiasts and those who enjoy some of the finer things in life.

To add to the colourful diversity of Franschhoek, one of the oldest paint contractors in the country, Paul Silberman, will officially be opening a Paint&Place in Franschhoek next week. Paul Silberman has been in the paint industry for 30 years – having spent 15 of those years in Sea Point.

Paul knows all the facets of the paint industry and is credited with having refurbished one of the oldest farmhouses in Franschhoek. This 1913 homestead, called Domaine Des Anges, has been transformed to its former grandeur.

Paul made use of a variety of Midas Paint products to restore Domaine Des Anges to its former glory. For the outside of the building he used Peinture and Midas Roof Paint – specifically ‘Simply Charcoal’. On the inside he used Pigmented Floorcote, Stucco and Down To Earth Matt.

COLMANT WINERY

The renovation of the Colmant winery – tucked away in the far end of Franschhoek Valley, is another project that Paul Silberman has been proud to be involved in. For the outside of the winery Paul coated the walls using Midas 240. To create the unique ambiance inside the winery, Paul used Steracon – a highly specialised product containing an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal additive with an active ingredient that repels bacteria, fungi and other potentially harmful microbes.

Paul Silberman is a specialist when it comes to renovations, and is ready to offer his advice, service and expertise to anyone looking to renovate their home.

The new Paint&Place store in the Village Artisan of Franschhoek (Shop no. 80C) has been tastefully done in that old French style which is so typical of Franschhoek. The freshly coated store will cater to the whole Cape Winelands area and is centrally located for all visitors to enjoy the wonderful pleasures of the Western Cape.
