Most conventional masonry paints contain acrylics making them non-breathable. These ‘plastic’ based masonry paints can trap moisture under the surface causing bubbles, cracks, flakes and general problems with damp. This can be particularly problematic with older buildings where rain and damp are obvious factors.
Although water repellent, Earthborn’s Silicate Masonry Paint when used alongside Silicate Primer is a highly breathable paint, so any damp will not be sealed into the building. It also has unparalleled durability and provides an attractive finish.
