20 GOOD REASONS WHY PEOPLE
PREFER SNOWCEM EXTERIOR PAINT




  1. Tried and proven with more than 50 years history (ask parents or grandparents).
  2. Many examples of applications exceeding 25 years
  3. Available as brilliant PLUS white or a range of subtle shades and colours
  4. Probably the cheapest available exterior paint (up to 40sqm/25 kg unit)
  5. Use on external brickwork, blockwork, stone, concrete,
    render, plaster and GRC
  6. Painted surface does not need to be dry before application
    (why other paints fail)
  7. Forms a hard, tough, impact resistant and durable surface
  8. Waterproofs, yet highly vapour permeable ie breathable (why other paints fail).
  9. Works to preserve thermal U value of substrate, by keeping it dry
  10. Does not fail by peeling or flaking (unlike other paints)
  11. Harder and stronger than other paints, typically 15 N/mm2
  12. Increases in strength, due to cement particle hydration
  13. Greater adhesion than other paints, typically 2 N/mm2 (why other paints fail)
  14. Withstands freeze-thaw attack and water related deterioration
    (why other paints fail).
  15. Ideal for extreme weather environments, including coastal locations
  16. Alkaline base that resists mould, algae and moss
  17. Polymer Free, thus not degraded by sun’s UV radiation
    (no polymers to breakdown)
  18. Can be used on weak and difficult surfaces (with the aid of Cemprover)
  19. Suitable for all buildings and structures (home, farms, offices,
    hospitals, hotels and other)
  20. Specified by architects and supplied to Transport For London/London Underground Limited for buildings and stations, for example

REGARDING SNOWCEM EXTERIOR PAINT

SNOWCEM THE BEST EXTERIOR PAINT AVAILABLE


Snowcem is the well-known, much loved white exterior wall paint (colour tints also available). It is famous for being a simple, 'easy-to-apply' coating that goes a long long way. As always, it is ideal for homes, farms, offices, public buildings, car-parks, historical buildings and any situation where weather conditions demand superior protection. It repeatedly demonstrates long life on brickwork, blockwork, stone, concrete, render, plaster and GRC.

Unlike other paints, which can lack compatibility because they include radically dissimilar materials (polymers etc) to concrete, stone, brickwork and render surfaces, Snowcem is 100% compatible. Those that have tried to remove dried cement from such surfaces will readily appreciate this characteristic. Other paints rely on much weaker bonding to the surface, which is why they fail by peeling, for example.

A further difference is that Snowcem is highly gas permeable ie it allows the painted surface to breathe. This makes it resistant to cyclic frost attack and other water related damage because moisture and water do not get trapped under the coating. Other paints, especially those with polymer content, have reduced gas permeability, which can result in blistering and peeling from trapped water build-up. Such paints can suffer weather fatigue all year around, even in hot summer weather, when trapped moisture can produce high internal vapour pressures, enough to even damage the painted surface.

In situations such as a new surface that produces dust, or an old surface that needs generally improving, Cemprover can be used to stabilise and strengthen the surface prior to applying Snowcem. Snowcem products are available throughout the UK and Europe. They can be supplied via a nominated local merchant or direct from us. Snowcem are represented solely by Northern Paints Ltd in the UK and Europe.
