In detail

Earthborn Ecopro Silicate Primer is a base coat primer for use with Ecopro Silicate Masonry, this product can be used to stabilize any mineral surface that is very powdery or absorbent. Can be used on interior and exterior mineral surfaces, such as: masonry, stone, pebble dash, plaster, concrete and sound silicate-based paint surfaces.

Ecopro Silicate Primer is part of the Ecopro Silicate System which requires all surfaces to be primed with a single coat of Ecopro Silicate Primer, followed by two coats of Ecopro Silicate Masonry Paint. Both paint and primer products combined creates a chemical bond, this then produces a water and weather-resistant barrier.

Additional information

Earthborn Ecopro Silicate Masonry Paint is a highly durable mineral paint that dries to a traditional matt finish. Highly breathable yet water resistant, it offers an alternative to lime based and conventional coatings. Used with Ecopro Silicate Primer it creates a permanent chemical bond with mineral substrates, resulting in a very long service life. Can be used on internal or external mineral surfaces.

Preparation

Product data sheet available on request. Must only be used on porous mineral-based surfaces e.g. stone, masonry, pebble dash, render and plaster surfaces. Not suitable for use over non-mineral coatings e.g. conventional masonry paint. Surfaces must be clean, dry and dust / grease free. All non-mineral coatings and unstable material must be removed completely. We recommend coats of water-soluble distempers and lime paint/ wash are removed or washed down thoroughly. New lime render / plaster must be fully cured before priming (approximately 4 weeks per 5mm). NOTE: All adjacent glass, metal, ceramic etc. must be protected to avoid permanent damage.

Application

  • Do not apply if temperature is below 8°C or expected to fall below 8°C within 24 hours of application.
  • Do not apply in direct sunlight.
  • Stir well before and during use. Paint can be applied with brush, roller or spray gun.
  • First prime with a single coat of Ecopro Silicate Primer followed by two coats of Ecopro Silicate Masonry Paint (first coat must be diluted with 10-20% Ecopro Silicate Printer).
  • Apply paint spreading evenly, ensuring a 'wet edge' is maintained and complete each wall / section in one go.
  • Apply the second coat in the opposite direction to the first coat.
  • Ensure each coat is dry before applying the next coat.
