WHITE WASHING

Mineral white washes offer:

  • a far cheaper alternative to bagging.

  • a more natural authentic appearance than paint or bagging.

  • a more environmentally friendly way to alter the appearance of brickwork.

  • are available in white and grey (special order) wash colours.

  • easy application, brushing, rolling or spraying.

Mineral white washes are a durable, lime-free alternative to the old, classic lime washes.  Mineral white wash effects can be easily achieved and there won't be the problems with flaking when used on internal and external building materials.

 

We supply an imported mineral white wash which is careful blend of English white clay, quartz and mica, together with a pure mineral silicate binder. This mineral white wash contains no cement nor acrylics, solvents, spirits, or any other types of synthetic binder.

Our mineral white wash can be purchased as a sample sachet, and in 600g and 6kg volumes.

Mineral white wash can also be diluted to produce a translucent white wash, in fact this is the typical application style, this allows the underlying brick to show through producing a wonderful aged look. Now this is really important............there is no right or wrong way with white washing, there is only the look you want, altering either the concentration and/or application style can result in differing looks. Due to this, we can not advise you on how much you need or the application approach, as this will depend on exactly the style/look you are after. But full strength coverage estimations are as follows:

Average porosity:         1 litre covers approximately 8 sq. m. 
Soft absorbent bricks:   1 litre covers approx. 5.5 sq. m.
Smooth dense bricks:   1 litre covers approx. 14 sq. m.

*Please note white washing is done after the brick work is complete, bricks do not come pre-white washed.

The random application of mineral white wash in both coverage and concentration results in this beautiful aged appearance.

A great example of translucent white washing. The underlying brick browns and blacks are overlain by a translucent mineral white wash to produce a ghostly white/grey waterstruck brick.
