SecilTEK Silicate Paint is one of the most breathable masonry paints on the market - with an 'Sd value' of 0.01 m.Silicate Paint provides a long-lasting, breathable paint finish both internally and externally. It can be applied onto a wide range of surfaces, including lime and cement based renders, gypsum plasters and stonework. It can be used on both traditional and modern structures and is ideal for troublesome areas, such as damp basements.
The use of breathable paints is essential in traditional, solid wall constructions which may contain moisture from a range of sources. Trapping this moisture in the walls with film-forming acrylic paints can cause serious structural and dampness problems.
For most purposes, apply one coat of SecilTEK Silicate Primer and two coats of SecilTEK Silicate Paint. SecilTEK paint is easy to apply with a brush or roller and dries in hours (although we advise applying no more than one coat per day).
SecilTEK Silicate Masonry Paint is a flat matt finish, and is available in over 60 colours (including white)
Like limewash, silicate paint soaks into the mineral substrate. In addition to this, potassium silicate (waterglass) reacts chemically to form a microcrystaline bond – a process known as silicification.
SecilTEK Silicate Masonry Paint has a number of advantages over other masonry paints and washes:
|✔︎||Highly breathable paint: allowing water vapour to escape from the structure whilst being resistant to rain.|
|✔︎||Unaffected by UV light: acrylic paints can become brittle over time.|
|✔︎||Very durable: a life expectancy of many years if applied correctly onto a suitable surface.|
|✔︎||Resistant to airborne pollutants and acid rain.|
|✔︎||Suitable for a wide range of substrates including lime and cement renders, gypsum plasters and stonework. Please contact us for advice on other substrates such as existing painted surfaces.|
|✔︎||Virtually no VOCs.|
|✔︎||Scrubbable: ideal for high-traffic areas.|
