Potassium Silicate Brick Stain:
We are excited to be using Eco-House
inorganic mineral stains to further protect and help with brick matching to better restore any facade.
Silicate Dispersion Paint is also known as Inorganic Mineral Paint
. It was developed in Germany in the late 1800s. Since then this type of paint has evolved into a first-class interior and exterior decorative, protective coating with out-standing technical quality features.
As an exterior wall finish on stucco, concrete, masonry and natural stone it is valued for it's:
- Lightfastness and
- Resistance against acid rain on historical restoration projects as well as in new construction of residential, commercial and institutional projects.
Inorganic Mineral Paint uses a liquid mineral (potassium silicate) as the binder, which determines the fundamentally different attributes of Silicate Dispersion Paints. Unlike latex resins, Minerals do not not age. Silicate Paint does not form a film, but bonds by penetrating into the surface and by petrification into a brick-like micro-crystalline coating, which repels liquid water, but allows water-vapours to pass through. Therefore Eco-House Silicate Dispersion Paint can not blister or peel - guaranteed by the laws of chemistry.
