What is Snowcem Exterior Masonry Paint

WHAT IS SNOWCEM EXTERIOR MASONRY PAINT?

Snowcem Plus exterior masonry paint is a ‘safe to use’, environmentally friendly cement based coating. Free of polymers, plastics, solvents and other additives that reduce the breathability of paint. Snowcem Plus Exterior Paint chemically combines with the substrate to form a tough permanent bond. This means it does not fail by peeling or flaking from the surface and because Snowcem paint combination of tight bonding and vapour permeability means that the painted surface is not susceptible to water related damage cause by freeze-thaw cycles, for example.

Snowcem Plus exterior masonry paint, is still manufactured to the original formulation, and has been applied worldwide to millions of square meters of surface over the last 60 years, taking in all the extremes of temperature and humidity – hot, cold, wet and dry environments have all stood the test of time, and there are applications over 25 years old and the paint is still in sound condition. Snowcem Plus exterior paint is available in super white and a range of colour shades, for which a colour chart is available. Small, colour samples are available on request.
