KRAFT SETE & HO.RE.CA

DRUCKFARBEN – KRAFT Paints is an Affiliate Member of the Greek Tourism Confederation (SETE).

SETE aims at constantly boosting competitiveness and demonstrating the key role of tourism in the Greek economy. SETE represents national sectoral associations of tourism businesses as well as individual businesses involved in the tourism economy in general covering the entire range of tourism activities.

KRAFTSETE

SETE envisions a balanced growth of the tourism sector, aimed at improving performance and increasing the number of arrivals and overnight stays, while improving the distribution of tourism supply throughout the country, and improving the distribution of demand over time.

The above objectives are pursued within the framework of environmental protection, and with the utmost respect for and promotion of Greek culture.

Tourism industry is key to Greek development and the transfer of culture, history, philosophy and local customs and values to the world. The hotel industry employs a large percentage of manpower with extensive experience of foreign guests and their needs.

The hotel market in Greece is in the phase of expansion. Investments in the hotel industry continued in both 2015 and 2016 with the addition of new hotels to the three highest star categories. A steady growth pillar has emerged during the crisis, raising its contribution to Greek GDP to 3.5% in 2016 from 2.5% in 2008 (compared with 1.6% in the main rival Mediterranean Countries).

KRAFT Paints & BIOCLIMA – Quality in Infrastructure

Visiting tourists in hotels, restaurants, cafes and bars is an overall experience that is framed by a wealth of qualitative and quantitative elements. Some of them are combined in the interior and exterior decoration with colors and shades, external thermal insulation, building waterproofing, the correct and seasonal painting of the pools and many other elements that contribute to the upgrading maintenance of the building.

92 certified combinations of materials as a system with European certification according to ETAG004

BIOCLIMA CLIMAtotal is an External Thermal Insulation Composite System (ETICS). It can be be applied to new and old facades the external wall of the buildingand it is certified by EOTA (based on ETAG004) with ETA number 10/0122 issued by EXOVA. The system includes 3 different types of thermal insulating boards: i) expanded polystyrene EPS (white or graphite), ii) extruded polystyrene XPS, iii) mineral wool MW with special external thermal insulation requirements. The base coat is either cement based or cement-free (organic) material with high anticracking properties. The finishing decorative plaster is organic, ready to use, based with granules of 0.4 mm to 2.5 mm. Additional components such as glass fibre mesh, primer and fixing anchors and auxiliaries are described below. All the components making up the system carry the necessary certifications (CE, DoP, EDF etc …)
