ProKolor® ZP is a true single coat system, that transforms PVCu in a single spray application
ProKolor® ZP has no solvent fumes or harmful waste and absolutely no detrimental impact on the environment
Dry in 30 minutes*

ProKolor® ZP is guaranteed for 10 years and has a life expectancy over 30 years for total peace of mind and performance over the product life of the PVCu window or door.
ProKolor® coatings are available in a limitless selection of colour shades and can be matched to any colour palette or range used in the paint industry. Customer can also select from a number of textures and finishes.
ProKolor® ZP provides a finished wet film in a single coat when applied in the vertical or horizontal plain by any standard spray method; Airless, HVLP or vacuum coater. ProKolor® is ideally suited to all types of spray line installation.
Due to its high film build and flow-out properties ProKolor® ZP coatings can also be applied by brush or roller in a single coat to give a more traditional painted finish or for touch-up.
In direct sunlight, the temperature difference between white PVCu components and dark coloured components can be as much as 30°C, leading to structural issues and internal heating. ProKolor® ZP Anti-Heat technology reduces this heat-gain to just 6°C, removing these issues and maintaining a cool building temperature.
ProKolor® ZP Anti-Heat technology is available as an option on all colours and finishes.
Our product strategy is very simple:
The health and safety of the applicator and the impact of any waste on the environment is at the heart of the development of ProKolor® ZP
The key environmental advantages of the ProKolor® ZP 1K water-based coating system versus solvent-based alternatives are summarized below:
|ProKolor® ZP 1K Water-based Coating||1K or 2K Solvent-based Coating|
|Health & Safety||Negligible fumes and no health threat for applicators||High level of VOC fumes create significant health threat for applicators|
|Applicator Mask||Basic particulate half mask||Full-face air-respirated mask|
|Emissions to the Environment|
No VOC’s, no harmful contaminants
No air emissions license required
|High VOC levels must be captured and discharged|
Air emissions license required
|Waste Streams||Disposable through standard general waste streams||Solvent & paint waste streams must be disposed of as hazardous waste|
|Product life||Products remains re-useable for 12 months, even after first use||2K products limited to 8 hour pot life; thereafter must be disposed of|
