Mineral Silicate

Textural Quality: With outstanding colour fastness and durability, this mineral silicate paint has a flat, elegant, slightly aged appearance replicating the aesthetic of European villas.

Application: Applied onto prepared concrete and cement, this finish does not allow moisture in, but allows it to escape —making buildings more breathable and resistant to wear and tear. Atmospheric moisture contributes to the process of silification, which over a few months creates crystals which do not allow moisture in —but allows it to escape, keeping the substrate strong and safe.
