Originally developed in Germany, mineral based stains and paints have been used widely in Europe for over 100 years.
When applied to concrete or masonry, standard paints do not allow the surface to breath. The resulting trapped moisture will cause the paint to crack, peel or blister leading to expensive maintenance.
Mineral based stains and paints soak into the surface and crystallize within it by chemical reaction. They leave the surface completely breathable and will never trap moisture. They are Zero VOC, completely non-toxic and have a lifespan of 30-40 years or more.
Mineral based paints and stains provide a maintenance free, cost effective way to permanently update the look of a building.
