About TIGER Drylac® FACADE Powder Coatings

TIGER Drylac® FACADE Powder Coatings

Weather-resistant powder coatings for facades

Facade - The face and protective mantle of a building. Aesthetic. Technical. Functional. And resistant to sun, wind and weather. After all, the building envelope not only emphasizes the value of an object, but also protects it against environmental influences. Increasing UV exposure in all latitudes, climatic changes and the strict quality specifications according to GSB InternationalQUALICOAT or AAMA make the coating on the facade the supreme discipline. Our TIGER Drylac® architectural products guarantee architects and clients compliance with these quality standards and ensure that colors and effects shine even after many years. From Vienna to Singapore. From Frankfurt to New York.

We feature three TIGER Drylac® series in our standard product range for facades: the durable series 14 and 29 with GSB Florida 1 and Qualicoat Class I and our super-durable series 68, which is GSB Florida 3 and/or Qualicoat Class II approved.

With our TIGITAL® brand we can also produce UV ink prints!

Silver, gold or copper shimmer: Depending on the angle of observation and lighting, metallics change their color to great effect. For exterior applications, only pigments with a high degree of color-fastness and weather resistance are used, in order to ensure long-term stability of the powder coating.


 Innovation: 3D Metallics

Spectacular depth and brilliance: TIGER Drylac® 3D Metallic standard products come in range of fine texture effects and in a smooth semi gloss and smooth matte finish and it has become impossible to differentiate them from wet paints.

 Anodized Colors

Resembling anodized surfaces, these powder coatings typically provide better cost-efficiency, as well as good color homogeneity and mortar resistance. These colors can be applied to nonaluminum substrates, too.


 Fine Texture Effects


Fine texture effects intend to stimulate two different senses: sight and touch. These coatings are offered in both interior and exterior grades and metallic effect finishes for decorative as well as functional purposes. With the help of modern powder coating technology, TIGER has reproduced the even distribution of sand, a natural element of nature. The result is a durable finish with the added decorative value of the coated product. In addition, this finish virtually eliminates the need for surface preparation.


 Antique, Vein

©TIGER Coatings

This range of powder coatings underlines the retro trend and delivers an appearance of an old, authentic, vintage and antique premium finish. The surface provides warmth and depth, with the noble character of steel and other metals. Their colored surface resembles an unique system of fine or alternatively rougher veiny pattern with a pleasant haptic effect. Colors of silver, copper, steel and gold are available. No two finishes will ever be the same. Though the finish is a one-coat system, it offers excellent hardness, corrosion and chemical resistance. This is the perfect choice for Victorian and other styles of furniture, as well as door lightening, metalware and similar applications.


 Flat Matte

©TIGER Coatings

Flat matte coatings create decorative surfaces with a pleasant, soft feel offered to users of a product. The surface is an invitation to our human senses. Based on the idea that products that feel good are immediately perceived by the human sense of touch, the flat matte surface creates pure emotions.
