Silacote Concrete and Masonry Paint is designed for use on inorganic cementitious substrates, and can be used in both interior and exterior applications. It has many beneficial characteristics such as water vapor permeability, incombustibility, prevents mold, mildew or algae, radiant heat barrier, color fast, zero VOC and environmentally safe.
This product penetrates into the inorganic substrate of masonry and then petrifies, forming a micro-crystalline structure that resists moisture and helps to reflect heat. Extremely long-lasting and durable, Silacote Concrete and Masonry Paint is not a topical finish, therefore it will not crack and peel off the structure. It has been used on hotels and churches for more than a hundred years and holds up extremely well.
Silacote must be applied over a masonry substrate such as concrete, stucco, brick and has no paint, sealers, oil or wax on the surface. It must be used with a Silacote Primer and mixed 50/50. It comes in a smooth or textured finish and can be tinted to more than 100 colors pastel colors. It can be applied with a brush, roller or sprayed. Only one prime coat and one top coat are needed.
TIP: Ordering Color Samples
You can order tinted samples of this product, here is how.
You can call an Eco Advisor at 800.405.0222 and place your order over the phone. Otherwise you can follow these steps to order a sample on the website:
1. Click on the "order a sample" link or button, this will place an untinted/white sample in your shopping cart.
2. Keep track of what color you want your sample to be. You will need to give us this information when you check out.
3. As you run through the check out procedure, on the shipping option page there will be a field for customer comments. In this field type up specifics as to how you want your samples tinted. i.e. "please tint Silacote Paint Sample to Silacoat Color 0024" - be sure you include notation of each sample you want tinted, if you do not include this information you will receive an untinted/white sample.
4. Place your order. If anything is unclear, an Eco Advisor will give you a call to straighten up any mystery.
TIP: Box your paint. Boxing paint means combining all the paint of one color into a larger container BEFORE painting. This blends any inconsistencies in color, especially on large surfaces where the slightest variation from one can to another could be visible. If you think you may not have enough paint to finish one wall, don't begin until you receive more paint. Box the new gallon with the original and then finish the job.
If you're building with plaster, stucco, brick or concrete, use this and you'll never have to paint again. It's expensive but not overpriced because it won't wear off or need re-application down the road. And, you will never have mold problems.
