Earthborn Silicate Masonry Paint Ecopro Colour Group

For long lasting paintwork on masonry walls, Earthborn Ecopro Silicate Masonry Paint and Primer offer a high performance alternative to traditional limewash.
Being water based and VOC free, Earthborn Ecopro Silicate Masonry Paint and Primer have strong environmental credentials. They also significantly outperform both limewash and conventional masonry paints; see table below.
The products bond with the underlying material to form a waterproof, weather resistant barrier that also allows the masonry to breathe. Earthborn Ecopro Silicate Masonry Paint lasts up to 15 years or more between repaints.
  • Earthborn Ecopro Silicate Primer – stabilises loose, powdery surfaces prior to painting, helps prevent algae growth, ideal for all mineral based surfaces such as stone, concrete, pebbledash, plaster and render.
  • Earthborn Ecopro Silicate Masonry Paint - long lasting, weather resistant, mould resistant, provides a crisp matt finish that does not discolour with time. Available in a standard range of 40 colours.
