Silicone Paint is a high-performance masonry paint. It can be used for painting over an existing render in order to refresh the facade and create a finish that looks brand new, or it can be painted over our Mineral Render to seal the render in.
Depending on the weather conditions, Silicone Paint should be applied 3-7 days after the Mineral Render has been applied to the substrate. This will ensure that a strong physical and chemical bond forms between the Mineral Render and the masonry paint.
Before application, the surface of the substrate must be clean and dry. Surfaces that are not intended for painting must be adequately protected. Check that the Silicone Paint is the requested colour. Mix Silicone Paint thoroughly within its container to ensure an even distribution of colour pigments. When using more than one tin of paint for the same surface, ensure that the batch numbers are matched.
Apply the masonry paint using brushes, rollers or spray equipment. Best practice when using a silicone-based paint is to apply the paint to the substrate in a continuous manner one wall/surface at a time. This will ensure that there are no visible drying lines where sections of paint meet. When used as a topcoat to our Mineral Render system, the masonry paint should be applied 3-7 days after rendering and at the latest 21 days after rendering, depending on weather conditions. When painting over the top of multi-layer render coats, the last layer must be 7 days old.
Paints with intense colours (reflection coefficient Y < 20%) should not be used for large facades; the resulting temperature and UV radiation in these conditions may reduce the durability of paint coats and may cause colour fading.
