SILICATE WOOD PAINTING
For centuries, lime and water glass paints have also been used for wood preservatives, such as in half-timbered buildings. They retard weathering, inhibit combustibility and protect against harmful insects. Recent architectural trends have focused on the aesthetic quality of mineral coated wood. This trend has played a prominent role in the design – with wood used on large projects for facade cladding, noise and visual protection walls. The aesthetic appearance of mineral coated wood is a pleasant contrast to the greasy, glossy wood lacquers and resin-based glazes. With BEECK Oleith, a silicate coating system is now available for rough wood; it can be used on both interior and exterior areas.
