Porter’s Original Lime Wash is a unique lime based coating blended with natural pigments.
It creates a soft weathered patina reminiscent of the wonderful finishes on the buildings of Tuscany, Portofino and other regions throughout the Mediterranean.
Porter’s uses slaked and aged lime to give this finish its ageless beauty. It is a truly wonderful material that mellows gradually while it wears away. Lime Wash also has hygienic properties and acts as a mild fungicide due to its high pH.
Features & Benefits
Low odour and Very Low VOC. Lime Wash is non film forming, allows walling to ‘breathe’ and does not crack, peel or flake (provided render has no hairline cracking or efflourescence). Resists mould and airborne pollutant pickup.
Coloured with UV resistant powdered oxides. During the lifespan of the product colour variations will continue and the streaking may appear more prominent around moldings, window/door trim and other architectural elements.
Colour variations will appear more noticeable in deeper colours. Lime Wash remains soft and gradually washes away over a period of 10 to 12 years. Water wash up.
Exterior (for interiors, use Interno Lime Wash). Can be applied to cement render, bagged brickwork, concrete, masonry blocks, unglazed bricks, mud brick, sandstone, off-form concrete, tilt-up concrete panels and most absorbent building stones. Perfect for painting cement and terracotta pots and tubs.
