MINERAL PAINT NATURALLY RESISTS GROWTH OF MOLD
Mineral paints and stains dry out far quicker than ordinary paint, and high natural pH levels deter the growth of organisms like mold, mildew and algae.
Mold and mildew can stain concrete finishes rendering them unsightly especially in moist or humid environments.
In the presence of rain or surface water, the crystalline matrix of mineral paints and stains spreads water across a much greater surface area leading to very rapid drying. Facades dry much more quickly when finished with mineral paints. Acrylic paints can cause water to pool and bead, leading to lengthy drying times and provide added fuel for bio growth.
And, mineral painted surfaces retain a high pH level which also deters bio growth. Concrete will stay cleaner and look fresher for longer.
Mineral paints naturally resist growth of mold, mildew and algae which can quickly stain untreated concrete resulting in unsatisfactory appearance very early in the life cycle.
