Whitewash is a mineral cement paint that has been used for finishing façades, interior walls, and ceilings for centuries.
The mineral paint is applied sufficiently thick with a scratch brush on old masonry in order to create a beautifully smooth appearance. Alternatively, the whitewash can be applied a few millimeters thick so that the structure of the masonry remains visible, and the character of the façade does not change.
A wall that is covered with whitewash is much more resistant to all wind and weather conditions. The advantage of whitewash is that it is a breathable layer so that substances that would normally penetrate in and out a wall, can continue to do so. This may seem unimportant, but a façade that is hermetically shut can show considerable defects after some time.
SEIFERT® whitewash from Nelissen is a ready-made mineral cement paint. Thanks to the exclusive "DUST FREE" technology of the whitewash, applicators can enjoy better working comfort and excellent usability.
