Potassium Silicate has been used for over 150 years as the vehicle for Masonry Coatings. When properly formulated and applied, silicate paints will last for decades as they chemically bond to the surface of concrete, stone and other forms of masonry. They are resistant to Acid Rain and provide a degree of Water and Stain resistance. Furthermore, as silicates are alkaline, they are natural biocides. Because silicate-based coatings chemically bond to the surface, they help fill the pores
of stone and cement materials providing a weatherproof surface and allows many years before recoating is necessary.
Zaclon LLC produces several grades of Potassium Silicate. Typically, we recommend our Zacsil ® 30 Grade, a 2.5 weight ratio Potassium Silicate for use in masonry coatings. In addition, Zaclon LLC represents our Swiss based partners, van Baerle’s Inocot ® series of modified Potassium Silicates. The Inocot series of products provide enhanced stability and formulating flexibility.
The use of silicate based coatings continues to grow as consumers recognize the unique ability of Potassium Silicate to supply superior properties.
