Caparol Amphibolin Universal Interior & Exterior Durable paint (5-10% Sheen)

Amphibolin is perfect for Kitchens and Bathrooms inside and Masonry outside!

Field of Application

Multipurpose, emission-minimised and solvent-free exterior and interior paint with outstanding adhesive strength on nearly all substrates. The special formula reduces the writing effect (stress whitening) for tinted paint coatings.

Suitable for weather-resistant exterior coatings on smooth and finely textured substrates, providing higher protection against aggressive air pollutants.
Universal facade paint for application on mineral renders of mortar groups PII and PIII, concrete, fair-faced brick masonry, fibre-cement boards, stable existing coats of paint, galvanised surfaces, unplasticized (rigid) PVC and wooden parts of unstable shape.

Heavy-duty, scrub resistant, texture keeping interior paint. Particularly suitable for highly stressed coatings on Capaver glass fibre wall coverings and outstandingly suitable for dimly-lit halls, corridors, staircases, storerooms, workshops and underground car parks, due to a high light reflectance value.

Amphibolin can be tinted with CaparolColor or AmphiColor® (AVA) colourants. Add up to max. 10 % of colourants for application on non-absorbent substrates, e.g. unplasticized (rigid) PVC or galvanised surfaces. 
If more than one bucket is manually tinted, all product must be thoroughly mixed before use in order to avoid colour differences.

Amphibolin / Amphibolin-W: Quantities of 100 litres or more in individual colours may be ordered ready tinted ex factory.

Amphibolin is tintable to all current colour collections via the ColorExpress tinting & mixing machine system. Amphibolin-W is tintable in light colours up to luminosity/lightness index (LI) approx. 70.
Check tinted product before applying to avoid colour differences. Always use tinted paint of same batch, when applying on seamless surfaces.
Brilliant, intensive colours may have a lower opacity (hiding/covering power). It is therefore advisable to apply a first coat in a similar hiding pastel tint, based on white. Possibly a second finishing coat may be necessary.

Colour Resistance according to BFS Data Sheet No. 26:
Class: A
Group: 1 - 3, depending on the colour.
