SILICATE PAINT

21.03.2014
These paints are considered as the oldest types of stone paint, they are manufactured based on mineral binding agent – potassium water glass.

Through the reaction of potassium silicate with aerial oxygen a gel of silicate acid (K2SiO3 + CO2 = SiO2gel + K2CO3) is created, which ties the pigment particles and filling agents in paint substance and reacts with silicate filling agents, which are contained in a brown coat, so called silicatization – the paint is chemically bound to the undercoat.

The silicate paints are currently experiencing rebirth, because it had been found out, that the dispersed stone paints fit only some backcoats, not all of them. This paint unifies excellently the structural differences between old, new and also sanitation plastering. It also enables covering of microcracks in browncoats and creates a unique transition bridge between the old dispersed and the new silicate coating. Its characteristic optical properties render coated surface a natural mineral-dim appearance. If the conditions of silicate paint manufacturing are kept correctly, the coatings are very permanent and the operational lifetime is dependant only on the quality of the brown coat. The connection is highly stable and persistent towards acids. Long operational lifetime of silicate paints applies to all silicate generations to an equal extent. 

Advantages of silicate paints



    • high vapor transmissivity

    • high adhesion (the result of a chemical structure of undercoat)

    • low absorbability

    • long operational lifetime

    • natural and constant appearance


The application of silicate paints



    • only to clearly mineral undercoatings

    • lime-cast plasters

    • lime-cement plasters

  • sanation plasters

Dear customers, between 8.6-12.6.2020 we will not be producing or expediting in our Ústí nad Labem production plant because of a planned shutdown of the power supply. Please order your goods the week before or after the planned shutdown. In extraordinary circumstances and after the consent of the business manager it will be possible to expedite goods at these times. Thank you

Vodní Sklo a.s. is a traditional producer of solid calcium chloride (CaCl2). The present operating drying machine line is technically obsolete, and because of its high energy consumption it is also uneconomical, and therefore the use of this machine is less environmentally friendly. Because of this, the management of the company had decided to make a new , modern and energy saving drying line. The building will be completed in 2020.
