Silicate Paint

Definition - What does Silicate Paint mean?

When it comes to environmentally friendly and colorfast interior and exterior coatings, silicate paints are the high quality and professional coating materials of choice.

Unlike the usual coating materials, silicate paint does not form a film on the substrate material but instead bonds directly with the substrate. The result is a highly stable, light, fast and durable coating, with particularly convincing long-lasting color and natural effect.

Silicate paint is also known as silicate mineral paint and mineral paint.

Corrosionpedia explains Silicate Paint

Silicate paints are inorganic zinc rich paints and are non-flammable. They contain silicate, which acts as a mineral binding agent in mineral paints. Such paints are considered to be environmentally friendly, durable and weather resistant.

Silicate paints do not form a layer but instead permanently bond to the substrate material in a process called silicification. Silicate paints require a siliceous substrate for setting. For this reason they are highly suitable for mineral substrates such as mineral plasters and concrete.

There are three types of silicate paints:

  • Pure silicate paint
  • Dispersion silicate paint
  • Sol-silicate paint
