Armstead Trade Masonry Paint
What is Armstead Trade Masonry Paint?
Armstead Trade Masonry Paint is a small range of paints developed primarily for use on masonry outside. It aims to give the user a smooth finish and decent level of coverage per litre (of course, this depends on the surface you’re working with). We feel it is important to highlight some specific features of top-selling paints within the range you should know about.
A very reliable water-based masonry paint. When working with any colour outside, you’re looking to avoid imperfections and cracks. With this paint having anti-carbonisation properties, cracking shouldn’t be a problem at all.
Magnolia is a very popular shade for use outside houses. With this paint being shower resistant in around half an hour, it is fast-acting and won’t let you down if you’re painting exterior walls and then the weather takes a turn for the worse.
It is solvent-based, so won’t dry in as quickly as the regular masonry paint, but this has been specially formulated to help ensure the paint is resistant to moisture and any alkali attacks. The brilliant white is incredibly popular and is also available in magnolia and a range of tinted colours.
Why use Armstead Trade Masonry Paint?
You’ll find that after the first coat is applied, this range of paints provides a very decent finish. You’re also looking at a good degree of coverage per litre, especially if painting outside on the likes of roughcast walls.
How long should I expect Armstead Masonry Paint to last?
Armstead suggests that the paint will do you good for around 15 years, as it is resistant to normal moisture & humidity levels outside. If you’re working with new mortar, or masonry exposed to fumes, the Pliolite products would be a good choice.
What is the typical recoat time for Armstead Trade Masonry?
The Smooth Masonry paints can be touch dry in around an hour & recoatable within 1 four.
The Pliolite Masonry paints contain rubber resins which need longer to dry. If you’re using them, you’re looking at a surface being touch dry in around two hours, and ready to be recoated in around 12 hours.
What colours do Armstead Trade Masonry Paints come in?
Brilliant White and Magnolia are very popular choices for customers. If you’re interested in a specific shade, products with a colour wheel beside them can be mixed to order. You’ll be able to see all available shades within each product page. If you are looking for deeper colours, our main masonry section has additional products from Dulux, Isle of Skye & Macpherson.
Do I need to do anything before I paint on masonry?
Masonry needs to be cleaned before you paint to give the best chance of adhering correctly. We suggest visiting our paint cleaning & prep section, where you’ll find products like mould stoppers, fungicidal washes, and wire brushes.
We also recommend getting some Armstead Stabilising Primer. It will help seal up any porous or powdery surfaces to give your paint the best chance of adhering to the surface on application.
