Eco House Inorganic Mineral Coatings

  1. 1. Inorganic mineral coatings Mural by John Wehrle Painted with Eco-House #1010 Quartzguard
  2. 2. Why mineral coatings? Ideal for Chemically Exceptionalconcrete, Vapor Resist wind- bond to service lifemasonry & permeable driven rain substrate (20+ years) plaster 2
  3. 3. Mineral coatings: the economical choiceAnticipated service life (exterior use) 20 – 30 years Dependent on climate Maximum 8 years Mineral coatings Film-forming paints 3
  4. 4. Why not film-forming paint?The problem: short life span Blistering & peeling!!! Trapped Trapped vapors lift moisture the paint vapors want Paint forms a to escape film & acts as vapor barrier 4
  5. 5. The importance of vapor permeabilityInside Outside Higher vapor  Sun heats the wall pressure escapes  Moisture in the wall through the wall escapes  If the coating is not vapor permeable it will blister and peel 5
  6. 6. Film-forming paintshowing the effects of vapor escape 6
  7. 7. The secret to mineral coating longevity Vapor permeability Chemical Non-aging bond with binder substrate Resistance to Inherently wind-driven fungicidal rain Lightfast mineral pigments 7
  8. 8. Benefits of a long service life Save money Be kind to the environment 8
  9. 9. There is no recoating scheduleOnly abrasion causes wear & tear on mineral coatingsHigh impact areas will eventuallyrequire recoating Untouched surfaces will retain their coating indefinitely 9
  10. 10. 20+ worry-free yearsTime is moneyNo need to repaint for 20 to30 years Save on materials Save on labour 10
  11. 11. Mineral coatings: easy on the planet Long service life Reduced 1 LEED resource point needs Benign VOC- left- free overs 11
  12. 12. We only have one planetMineral coatings outlast film-forming paints by a factor of2 or 3 Use fewer natural Reduce your resources environmental impact 12
  13. 13. No toxic waste Allow left-overs to dry out Once dry, left-overs are inert & solid Dispose with regular waste 13
  14. 14. The solvent – water No petroleum VOC H2O No off- Odorless gassing 14
  15. 15. The binder – potassium silicatePotassium silicate, Micro- crystallineK2SiO3, is liquidstone K2SiO3 Chemically bonds to Non-aging substrates 15
  16. 16. The pigments – earthen minerals Non- fading Resistant to acid rain Non-toxic Available in abundance 16
  17. 17. The fillers – powdered minerals Talcum Calcite Ground up minerals provide bulk & opacity 17
  18. 18. Eco-House #1010Quartzguard coating Saint John,New Brunswick 18

  22. 22. TrinityBellwoods Park gate restored with Eco-House #1010 Quartzguard 22 Toronto, ON
  23. 23. White brickturned red with Eco-House #1010 Quartzguard Pennsylvania 23
  24. 24. Suitable substrates Concrete Masonry PlasterAbsorbent & rigid New drywallmineral substrates 24
  25. 25. Application of mineral coatings Roller Brush Airless sprayer Suitable application tools 25
