For years, customers have asked if they can use Earthborn’s Silicate Masonry Paint on previously painted masonry. Well, now they can.
The newly formulated Bonding Primer can be used alongside Silicate Masonry Paint for exterior masonry surfaces that do not need to breathe. This means that the 48 beautiful shades can be used on all buildings. Bonding Primer provides a mechanical bond between a ‘sealed’ wall and the paint, allowing Silicate Masonry Paint to ‘stick’ to the pre painted surface.
And in places where there is a mix of painted and unpainted masonry, you can now spot prime the patches where the previous paint cannot be removed with Bonding Primer and prime the rest of the unpainted area with Silicate Primer.
The updated Earthborn product range means that Silicate Primer used on uncoated masonry with Silicate Masonry Paint will create a highly breathable and permanent chemical bond. On existing, sound, previously painted surfaces (that don’t need to breathe), Bonding Primer used with Silicate Masonry Paint will create a strong mechanical bond.
Earthborn’s Silicate Masonry Paint has been used on a wide variety of buildings including windmills, historic halls, new builds, seafront cottages and farmhouses. This new primer means it can be used on an even wider range of buildings, including those with a mix of previously painted and bare masonry, as requested by customers keen to achieve the best protection for exterior masonry.
