Ecologic™ LimeWash Platinum (Whitewash) Product Description:
Ecologic™ LimeWash Platinum is a 100% made in the U.S.A. breathable whitewash based on a traditional mid-19th-century recipe with no modern additives. Our whitewash is a perfect complement to lime plaster and suitable for most backgrounds. It uses a custom formulated lime that is mixed with water on the job site, to create a stain-like coating for masonry.
Where can your whitewash be applied?
Our LimeWash can be applied to properly primed gypsum plasters, drywall, lining paper, cement and lime backgrounds, bricks, blocks, smooth (stone, wood, and fence posts, with the addition of 15% Ecologic Acrylic Latex Additive), and untreated aged timber. For a heavy-bodied LimeWash finish consider Ecologic Takcoat Platinum – call 215-536-6706 for details.
Custom colors are available upon request. All customs are made to order and can be produced by either sending in a sample of your mineral paint (for more information on ordering Custom Simulations go here).

Ecologic™ LimeWash Platinum is a mineral coating, meaning that it absorbs into the substrate and then will form lime crystals in the pores of the masonry and on the surface. It is vapor permeable and immune to salt attack. Due to its crystal structure and chemistry, vapor in the wall is able to evaporate out. Since water nor salts will get trapped behind the limewash, it will not bubble, blister, or flake off.
