Paulin silicate coatings give the masonry excellent resistance to atmospheric agents and polluting agents. Their inorganic composition also hinders the proliferation of algae, mosses and lichens, for always intact facades. Among the many advantages of using the Paulin silicate line, the security of obtaining brilliant colors unalterable from the weather: the excellent mechanical strength and the presence of natural pigments allow them to achieve perfect results in terms of chromatic brightness and durability, more than any other painting. The perfect adherence of the Paulin silicate products consolidates the mineral support and creates a barrier that, like a skin, consent transpiration with a low absorption of dirt and a high permeability to water vapor. This is why silicate coatings are indicated for the restoration and embellishment of mineral artefacts, in particular for the restoration of ancient facades in historic centers, thanks also to the product's high environmental compatibility.



Paulin silicate coatings are the ideal solution for wall supports that need more protection from humidity and external attacks. This collection is composed of highly breathable silicon-based products, one of the most common elements in nature along with oxygen. Their natural component makes them compatible with the environment, protecting the masonry over time, finally free to breathe, without releasing dangerous volatile substances into the air.


Paulin silicate paints consist of a potassium silicate solution, a binder that reacts with the carbon dioxide present in the atmosphere, becoming silica. Once deeply penetrated, the silica causes a chemical reaction with the wall surface, giving rise to insoluble and natural binding compounds that are very resistant to abrasions and pollutants in the atmosphere. The compound that is formed, of considerable hardness, forms a whole with the support to which it is applied and with which it will share the same structural variations. In this way the tension between the varnish and the support itself is eliminated, avoiding the "peeling" effect typical of products that create a thin surface film.
