APP Protect

Contractors around the world create beautiful structures. The problem that arises after delivery is to keep them clean, free of penetrating liquids or graffiti!

That is where APP comes in! We develop and produce functional coatings that protect the built environment; residential, commercial and infrastructural structures.

Architects demand that their creations are delivered CLEAN. But how to achieve that when there is always oil, chewing gum, urine, water, exhaust gases, graffiti and soot nearby.

APP creates impregnations that can be used to protect most kind of building materials against these pollutions.

Our in-house developed products do not change the visual or physical properties of the ever-innovative building materials.

  • Our impregnation for horizontal surfaces transforms porous substrates into ultra hydrophobic and oleophobic super surfaces that repel water, oil based contaminants and other stains.
    It is environmentally friendly, water based and zero-VOC. The surface is protected and without change; it is completely invisible.
  • Our semi permanent anti graffiti system provides an efficient and weather resistant protection against graffiti.
    A mix of 100% natural polysaccharides and water.
    After drying it forms an extremely thin protective film and leaves the surface completely vapour permeable.
    Graffiti is easily removed without the use of any harsh products; just hot water!
    And last-but-not-least a new protective layer is applied.

APP is a leading developer and provider of advanced protective coatings for architectural surfaces. Our environmentally friendly APP protective systems are among the most respected in the industry because of their effectiveness and ability to protect surfaces and leave them vapour permeable; without changing the visual aspect of the treated surface. 

Today our systems protect the surfaces of many commercial, civil engineering, sports and infra-structure projects, as well as art objects and heritage. Not only in the Netherlands but also worldwide.

Since its founding by Piet Nuijs in 1985, APP has focused on the development of sustainable and environmentally friendly protection of architectural surfaces from unwanted pollution. 

Our products are the result of private research and are developed in our own laboratory. APP products are environmentally friendly and are particularly valued for their high degree of effectiveness and the visually unaffected treated surfaces. 
The treated surface remains vapour-permeable!
