Margraf, a leading company in the extraction, working and processing of natural stone, chose FILA for the treatment of the splendid marble façade of its headquarters in Chiampo, a town in the Veneto region of Italy. The polished marble rainscreen cladding was first washed with FILACLEANER Concentrated All Surface Cleaner, then protected with FILASTONE PLUS Matte Finish Stone Enhancer. Rainscreen cladding is a special kind of wall covering whereby an external layer is applied that does not adhere to the curtain wall, forming a gap between the two and allowing natural air circulation, improving insulation and preventing infiltration problems. The Margraf headquarters are clad in a very fine, delicate, polished marble. To enhance its natural beauty, the façade was first washed with FILACLEANER, ideal for cleaning delicate surfaces. The second stage entailed the application of FILASTONE PLUS, which protects and enhances the original color of shiny, polished, untreated and tumbled natural stone such as marble, granite and agglomerates. It is especially suitable for exterior walls, as it is UV resistant, does not yellow and offers long-lasting protection.
