Cardinal House is an impressive white Portland stone building, in Albemarle Street, Mayfair, in the heart of London. The colour of the building and its prominent position meant that it was always exposed to the elements and to vehicle pollution, such is the flow of traffic that pass it every day.
The owners of the building opted to protect Cardinal House with Epicuro HBG Façade protector to prevent the stone becoming contaminated by vehicle and other pollution.
Epicuro HBG penetrates the surface's capillaries to form an invisible (but breathable) protective barrier that repels water, graffiti and other surface contaminants, ensuring the building’s façade remains dry, clean and protected at all times. Because rain water can no longer soak into the masonry it also improves the surface's insulative properties and thermal resistance, resulting in less heat loss and saving energy.
