WHAT EXACTLY ARE MINERAL PAINTS MADE FROM?
Mineral paint consists of waterglass (sodium silicate and potassium silicate) and mineral pigments.
WHY ARE MINERAL PAINTS SO DURABLE?
It forms a bond with a surface, creating a water resistant, yet vapor-permeable barrier. When a surface is treated with mineral paint, the underlying crevices also contact the paint. The paint seeps into the material and reacts chemically with it. As a result, a covalent bond between the surface and the paint develops. The bond is very strong and is almost like a seal. This allows the surface to be impermeable to water but breathable at the same time. The coating typically protects the surface from damage, while maintaining paint integrity. The paint color doesn’t fade since it is resistant to UV light.
WHAT MAKES MINERAL PAINTS ECO-FRIENDLY?
Mineral paints contain natural ingredients and a very low amount of VOCs.
