Exterior paint that stands the test of time

by Tania Wannenburg

High-Performance Neuklad exterior paint is one of the most durable waterproof coatings available in Africa, and the first offering with a 15-year exterior paint film guarantee for over a decade.

The first exterior paint in South Africa that comes with a 15-year paint film guarantee, High-Performance Neuklad, has proven that it is durable, versatile and the ideal solution for an exterior waterproof coating.

It is a 100% pure acrylic blended paint, reinforced with specially selected fibres. This carefully designed combination of raw materials affords High-Performance Neuklad its unmatched flexibility and excellent elasticity, and is the secret behind its unrivalled ability to bridge hairline cracks and withstand the most extreme weather conditions. Trusted for decades, it is the most durable waterproof coating for exterior use available in Africa.

A breakthrough in exterior waterproofing paint, High-Performance Neuklad was specifically developed to provide the answer to the harsh weather conditions South African buildings are exposed to, such as ultraviolet (UV) radiation, wet winters, the effect of the sea in coastal areas and air pollution.

Today it is still manufactured according to the original Neutron formulation that has been used since 1968. In addition, it strictly adheres to the SABS ISO 9001 quality standards.

Two for the price of one
When used together with a membrane, which can be tinted to any colour, it forms an excellent waterproofing system due to High-performanceNeuklad’s superior adhesion properties and resistance to dirt retention.

Create the perfect partnership
To get the best performance, all surfaces should be prepared with High-Performance Alkali-Resistant (AR) Sealer prior to painting with High-Performance Neuklad. High-Performance AR Sealer is formulated with carefully selected solvent-based acrylic copolymers that ensure excellent penetration into surfaces and superior adhesion of subsequent coats. It is ideal for sealing porous, chalky and friable surfaces, and also functions as a barrier against alkali attack.

Product specification
High-Performance Neuklad will cover between 5 to 7m²/litre without a membrane and with a membrane between 1,5 to 1,8m²/litre, dependant on substrate type and texture. High-Performance Neuklad will be touch-dry after 30 minutes at 23⁰C when applied without a membrane and a second coat can be applied after four hours at 23⁰C.
