Our Silic8 range of primers and adhesives is unique. Unlike most, we don’t rely on acrylics or resins to make these products stick and bind to your wall. Instead we use Water Glass, an extraordinary liquid that is completely mineral, just like lime.
And just like lime, our Silic8 primers and adhesives are very breathable, very durable and completely incombustible. Those aren’t the only benefits though, as Silic8 primers are free from VOCs and odours for a healthier home. All of the products are independently tested to check they are vapour open, so you can be confident you won’t find trapped damp and moisture. We also have adhesives and primers that are tested and certified as non-combustible to ISO standards, for commercial buildings and similar projects.
If you’re going to expense and trouble or re-plastering or rendering in lime, don’t use plastic primers, use Silic8 mineral primers. If you need guidance or help with application, testing bond strengths or anything else, contact one of our team of experts.
