Product Information
Data Sheet

Silicate Masonry Paint is a durable masonry paint that dries to a classic, matt finish. Being highly breathable and weather resistant it offers an alternative to traditional lime based and conventional coatings.

It can be used on interior or exterior bare, porous mineral surfaces. Eg. Stone, masonry, concrete, pebbledash, plaster and sound silicate-based painted surfaces. It’s especially suitable for renovation projects and can have a lifespan of up to 15 years.

Approx coverage: 5-7m² per litre depending on surface.

Note: Earthborn Silicate Masonry Paint can be applied over conventional ‘plastic’ masonry paints with the use of Earthborn Bonding Primer. Some clay surfaces may require special treatment.

For Silicate Masonry Paint to work effectively it must be used with either Earthborn’s Silicate Primer or Bonding Primer. Please click the Primer tab to check which primer is right for you.

Colours on screen may vary from actual paint. Slight variations in colour can occur between batches and finishes; the substrate and texture of the surface can also change the appearance of the final colour, as can lighting.

Advice is given in good faith but without warranty as methods of application and site conditions are outside of our control.
