Ancient technique for sophisticated comfort of life
Clay Paint is a matt, mineral and ecological wall and ceiling paint for indoors. The paint is especially suitable for a wide range of applications, from authentic renovations of old buildings to the most contemporary interiors. Clay Paint produces relatively fewer colour nuances than, for example, Lime Paint.
Pleasant living environment
Most ecological product on the market
Mineral, environmental-friendly and durable
Authentic renovations as well as the most contemporary interiors are bringing nature inside the home thanks to clay paint.
Clay paint creates a warm look and feel with its subdued mineral appearance. The pleasant texture of this primal material not only adds comfort thanks to its natural chic, but also encourages the nurturing of friendship and happiness: the product simply radiates a warm atmosphere.
Clay as a raw product goes back many centuries. It was used to clad houses. The discovery of cement meant that clay was replaced as a building material in our region but, in the meantime, this clay has gained popularity once again thanks to its thermal insulation and antistatic characteristics, and its damp-regulating effect. Clay paint is capable of absorbing and releasing moisture so the humidity in a house remains constant. This means its breathable properties contribute to the efficiency of ventilation systems. And this is also the case in air-tight buildings!
These characteristics make clay paint ideal for authentic renovations of old buildings but also for the most contemporary interiors. In addition, clay paint can easily be applied using a wide range of decorative techniques to created a very sleek, subdued and chic look or a more nuanced appearance with stripes.
Clay Paint does not contain any solvents or preservatives and only releases a mild clay odour when it is applied. This makes Clay Paint one of the most ecological paints on the market. Just like gravel and sand, clay paint consists mainly of granular rock residues.
Clay Paint is environmental-friendly, breathable, moisture-regulating, flexible and antistatic. You can work fast because you can apply the second coat immediately after drying.
This paint is not hazardous or irritating.
Clay Paint adheres very good to different types of substrates. All mineral substrates, such as brick, pure concrete and some plaster renders are suitable for clay paint, but old paint, wood, MDF, metal, etc. can also be painted on.
Clay Paint should not be used on substrates which are permanently damp or in wet/damp rooms.
A unique characteristic of Clay Paint is that it is easy to remove thanks to its perfect reversibility.
Clay Paint produces by nature relatively fewer colour nuances than, for example, Lime Paint. However, some of these nuances may be desired and a qualified craftsman can create an ageing white haze, a weathered patina, or different colour nuances with extra pigments.
Applying different colours layer on layer produces very subtle colour nuances.
The absorption power of the substrate has only a minor influence on the colour intensity.
