GWU Science & Engineering Hall--Interior Concrete Walls

GWU Science & Engineering Hall--Interior Concrete Walls: Ecosil ME Self-sanitizing Interior Mineral Silicate paint wash chosen due to the unique photocatalytic properties that provide a self-cleaning and self-sanitizing surface that actively reduces indoor VOC's in the presence of light.  In addition, Ecosil ME is an extremely durable and srub resistant finish that will stand up to rigorous use in the lab facility.
GWU Science & Engineering Hall--Interior Concrete Walls: Before:  Cast concrete walls required cleaning to remove form release agents, curing compounds and dirt and dust from construction.

About This Project

Challenges The new interior concrete wall surfaces were properly prepared to remove dust, dirt, form release agents, curing compounds, etc. Grind marks and other imperfections needed to be minimized, without a heavy textured coating as the goal was to retain the rough--natural appearance of the concrete.
Solutions Interior concrete surfaces were treated with Keim Concrete Cleaner to remove surface contaminants prior to painting. Ecosil ME Self-Sanitizing Interior Mineral Silicate Texture Base Coat was used to help harmonize the various textures of the concrete surface, but without providing additional heavy texture.
