Thirty years ago, North America’s first stains for brick and concrete originated from Nawkaw laboratories. Today, Nawkaw provides a portfolio of superior products with proven durability that have stood the test of time.
Each Nawkaw stain provides specific advantages, but all are formulated for longevity.
Because a brick home in Chicago is exposed to very different conditions than a concrete skyscraper in Sydney, Australia, Nawkaw created and educated regional teams of highly-qualified Color and Application Technicians who adjust color treatments for the specific climate and environmental factors in your area. In addition, Nawkaw’s specialized research team in Athens, Georgia can perform standardized tests on your materials and provide comprehensive advice.
Each Nawkaw stain provides specific advantages, but all are formulated for longevity. Mineral construction materials, such as brick and concrete, are open-pored, and a capillary effect naturally allows some moisture to penetrate the surface and escape as water vapor. Unlike various film-forming coatings, Nawkaw stains allow building materials to retain that natural breathability, thus preventing cracking, spalling and delamination of the surface.
Nawkaw stains and technological processes are environmentally friendly. Developing zero VOC products and providing solutions that conserve and restore existing surface materials are just some of the ways Nawkaw is providing a better quality of life in a healthier, more beautiful environment.
The results exceeded our expectations and we are extremely pleased with how close everything looks . You can't tell where the process starts or ends unless you knew where to look. This saved the natural bricks when our only other alternative would have been to paint all the bricks. Your team did a great job! It is perfect and better than we expected.
I just wanted to take a moment and thank Nawkaw Mideast and their amazing crew for the exceptional job that was performed at the Detroit Savings Bank in Detroit, Michigan. We had attempted every cleaning method known to mankind to remove the carbon staining from the brick facade, but to no avail. Two weeks working with Nawkaw turned the Detroit Savings Bank into a whole new building! Thank you again!
