What is Snowcem Exterior Masonry Paint


Snowcem Plus exterior masonry paint is a breathable mineral based paint. It’s safe to use and environmentally friendly. Free from polymers, plastics, solvents and other additives that reduce the breathability of paint. Snowcem Plus Exterior Paint uses white portland cement and other natural ingredients in its formulation, this allows the paint to chemically combine with the substrate to form a tough permanent bond. This means Snowcem Plus does not fail by peeling or flaking from the surface and with Snowcem paints combination of tight mollecular bonding to the surface and vapour permeability, this means that the painted surface is not susceptible to water related damage cause by freeze-thaw cycles, for example.
