For our Silicate Masonry Paint to work effectively, you’ll need to use either our Silicate Primer or Bonding Primer before application.

Silicate Primer: For bare porous unpainted masonry substrates such as lime plaster, stone, pebbledash & concrete. When used with Silicate Masonry Paint it will create a highly breathable and permanent chemical bond.

Bonding Primer: For use over previously painted, sound masonry substrates. When used with Silicate Masonry Paint it will create a strong mechanical bond.

Our paint and primer products when used together form a bond to the underlying substrate to create a weather resistant, beautiful matt finish.

Our primers are water based and virtually VOC free.


Once you know the correct primer for your project application is in 3 simple steps

Note: Do not use if the temperature is below 8°c or expected to fall below 8°c within 24 hours of application. Ensure the correct primer is used on the intended surface. Some clay surfaces may require special treatement. Please be aware Silicate Masonry Paint must be used alongside Earthborn’s Silicate Primer or Bonding Primer.
