Paints and Interiors – 3 top products
Eicó Alterior range
Eicó Alterior is made using 100% acrylics for both interior & exterior application.
The paints are hard wearing, quick drying, scrubbable, are resistant to UV and can be tinted into any colour.
Eicó paints are manufactured in Iceland using a carbon neutral process of geothermal and hydroelectric power and have some of the lowest VOC levels of any paint sold in the UK today.
Water-based mineral silicate paint for interior application. Keim paints are based on a water glass solution and chemically etch to the substrate they are applied to, so will not flake or peel.
They are fully breathable and have the same SD value as a lime wash, whilst protecting the surface like a film-forming paint.
Keim mineral paints are free from VOC, contain no solvents and use natural minerals and pigments. Keim paints can be colour matched into any colour.
Scala Klassick Oljefarg
A tintable oil based lasur paint (opaque stain) from Sweden. Klassick Oljefarg is a two coat paint suitable for new exterior timber. Using a Grundolja clear preserver as a first coat, Klassick Oljefarg penetrates the timber and allows the grain of the wood to be seen.
It is incredibly easy to use, dries to a rich satin sheen and requires little or no preparation. For renovation purposes, a clean down or a very light sand is all that is required, followed by a single coat of Oljefarg to give you a coating that will last for years.
And I should know, as all these paints are used on my own house!!
