The meteoric power of nanotechnology now provides us with the universal exterior protection and surface radiance we desire for our homes, properties and buildings,” said Malcolm Page, General Manager, Sigma Paints Qatar, during the launch yesterday. Sigma Guardian Nano also has a host of unmatched characteristics including alkali resistance, anti-carbonation, longer colour retention anti-moisture properties, and resistance to UV radiation and the effects of efflorescence. Mike Murphy, Sigma Paints Decorative Technical Support Manager said the development of cutting-edge nanotechnology reflects the increasing expectations of consultants, architects, contractors and owners who recognise the need for solutions that offer superior aesthetic qualities and long term financial benefits of extended paint life protection.

In addition to the recent introduction of NPS technology, Sigma Paints was the first company in the world to promote water-based technology and environment-friendly paints and first in the world to formulate solvent-free range of products.
