A shining example of Facade Visual Harmonization is 255 King Seattle.
Color matched OPACI-COAT-300®
water-based silicone coating was applied to the spandrel glass IGU on surface 4.

 

What is Facade Visual Harmonization? 

  • When vision and spandrel glass seamlessly blend together across the envelope exterior

  • Harmonization is achieved when a precise silicone spandrel coating color is crafted to match the specified vision glass IGU configuration.

Why did ICD formulate a high-performance silicone spandrel coating?

In 1986, ICD began with the desire to create green and healthy alternatives for the glass coatings market, which spawned our flagship product OPACI-COAT-300®.
We offer architects, developers, and designers free tools and coating solutions for success, allowing them to specify our products with sound principals as the preference for “greener” building products has grown into an unstoppable demand. Each day as solution-based products are formulated by our in-house R&D facility and proven products leave our shipping docks, our vision becomes reality – creating healthier working and living spaces through chemistry.
