Custom Ecologic™ Potassium Silicate Paint Product Description:
Ecologic™ Potassium Silicate Paint Custom is a customized breathable, exterior, mineral-based silicate wall paint for projects that require a custom color that matches a paint swatch from a store or sample from existing paint. By utilizing our custom simulation service you can go beyond our stock colors and create a truly breathtaking finish that closely resembles your paint swatch or existing paint.
A mildew resistant and water repellent, highly durable, and breathable mineral-based exterior silicate wall paint.
Mineral paints and stains chemically bond to all forms of masonry substrates such as brick, stone, mortar, stucco, and cement. Unlike latex paints, they are non-film-forming which creates a permeant bond that works in harmony with the masonry. Potassium Silicate Paint is a thick-bodied masonry paint. Color Wash Stain, however, is a translucent potassium silicate stain that allows the masonry texture to come through the finish. Both can be brushed, rolled or sprayed on. For artistic expressions or when feathering colors with Color Wash Stain a sponge may be appropriate for a unique finish.
Potassium Silicate Paint must not freeze during warehousing or transport and may limit availability during certain times of the year. Please call for availability.
