Students’ Hostel in Mainz

At the beginning of winter term 2008, the new students’ hostel ‘Wallstraße’ which comprises 478 modern apartments was inaugurated in Mainz, Germany. The bright colour design rich in contrast was realised by applying the capillary and surface hydrophobic silicone resin paint SOVASAN. Only such a moisture vapour permeable coating material assures optimum colour fastness for many years and decades.

SOVASAN was tinted using a new method developed by SOVA GmbH based in Kamp-Bornhofen, Germany, for which exclusively inorganic granular pigments (earth paints) were employed.
