Natural Paints & Finishes

The one thing that a paint or finish needs to do is work, this should be the case with all paints and stains but often inferior or cheaper products fail, equally the wrong choice of product can also fail. We have worked with a number of globally recognised manufacturers to offer a compact range of proven performance paints, stains and associated products all designed and tested to give superior protection without chemical,toxic or unwelcome ingredients.

Many of these products are suitable for those with intolerances or allergies. Our products do not contain VOC's or substances harmful to human health


Our manufacturers:


Livos

Livos were the world’s first manufacturer of commercial natural paints; Livos manufacture natural paints, oils, varnishes, maintenance and cleaning products.  Livos impose strict environmental, ecological and sustainable criteria on everything they do, their products are healthy, environmentally friendly and made from natural and renewable raw materials – good for you, good for the environment, good for the climate.

Over 30 years of research, experience and innovation makes Livos the oldest continuous industrial manufacturer of ecological paints and oils worldwide. Made without harmful chemicals, Livos products contain only biologically and environmentally responsible ingredients, grown without the use of pesticides. Livos products are never tested on animals. Livos use pure and odourless raw materials

A full declaration (declaration of all ingredients) is a Livos standard since 1984. This full transparency towards customers made Livos a pioneer in the paint industry.  The Full Declaration is part of the Livos holistic approach, in particular for people with allergies but also simply for good health.

Livos also produce a wide range of their products in their ‘Neutral’ range designed for the chemically sensitised and allergic.

Corical

Corical is made by Arte Constructo which was started in 1989, since then the company has built up a large expertise in the use of lime in construction; the product range includes the development of darker pigments always considered an issue with lime based (or natural) paints. Now the range included dark hues of umber, red, green and even blue these are additions to the lighter and more pastel finishes. The Corical range is truly versatile for use inside and out.

Arte Constructo have a well defined and environmentally sound approach for over a decade they have used the term bio-ecological architecture to describe a way of understanding the built environment which makes everyone aware of the need to protect a healthy and viable planet for future generations, their approach to natural, recyclable and low polluting materials has been mainly targeted at specifiers and architects.

 In line with  National and Community legislation, Arte Constructo have led the way implementing strict quality controls well within these environmental parameters both in the production cycle and in the products themselves, minimising harmful effects whilst ensuring the maximum level of recycling.

Applications

  • Exterior render / masonry / brick
  • Interior plaster / masonry / brick

Beek

Founded in 1894, by Ludwig Beek have been involved in the production of pure active silicification mineral paints based on water and glass, the breakthrough formulation was to create a paint with an inseparable bond between the coating and micro porous substrate, Ludwig Beek achieved this with a pure crystalline finish mineral paint system suited to historic buildings for both interior and exterior use. The original formula is still used today in the manufacture of Beek Pure Crystalline Finish Mineral Paint a highly durable, UV stable yet breathable paint available in a wide range of colours

Beeks has stood for top quality lime and soluble water paints suited for use on historical building materials for more than 120 years. Proven on critical substrates of listed buildings, on which synthetic resin bonded systems frequently fail.


The capillary-active coatings have ideal open porosity, and are therefore extremely valuable in building physics terms. Thanks to silicification (The act or process of combining or impregnating with silicon or silica; the state of being so combined or impregnated, hardening and bonding to you and me!) they form an inseparable mineral unit with the render or plaster substrate, they do not tend to flake and crucially do not form a vapour-tight  high-tension outer skin. This open porosity is a key component of any structure designed to breathe. The high alkalinity of the coatings has a mould resistant and anti bacterial effect. Beek paints are pure mineral paints that only contain natural ingredients. They are free from synthetic solvents, plasticisers and biocides.

Applications

  • Exterior render / masonry any mineral surface
  • Internal plaster / any mineral surface 

St Astier

In 1833 Louis Vicat, still considered today one of the greatest authorities in hydraulic limes, surveyed the limestone quarries at St. Astier situated in the Perigord area of Dordogne where archaeological evidence shows that lime was produced in Roman times. Vicat concluded that the material was appropriate for the production of natural hydraulic lime. Industrial production begun in 1851. Today, St. Astier's production capacity is over 100.000 tons per year.

The deposits extend between Montaceix and Neuvic sur l'Isle (approx. 10 km) and the layer is over one hundred meters thick. It was formed during the Upper Cretaceous period (approx. 75 million years ago) by marine sediment (mostly crustacean and corals). The sea in the basin was not subject to severe currents and this allowed the formation of a uniform and undisturbed layer of calcareous rock infiltrated mainly by silica with only insignificant traces of other elements. This characteristic of the rock is unique in Europe and is the reason why the St. Astier products are so reliable.

The composition of this calcareous rock infiltrated mostly by silica makes all the difference between producing materials with constant characteristics or being unsure of the final qualities as is commonly experienced when argillaceous or less pure limestone deposits are exploited

St Astier Natural Hydraulic Limes (NHL) and derivative products have been produced by the same families since 1851. The mineralogical characteristics of the raw materials, the manufacturing process and the quality controls are such that users are assured of the constant performance of the products

Applications

  • Exterior render / masonry
  • Interior plaster / masonry / brick
  • gypsum plasters / plasterboard
  • Cement board
  • Lining paper
  • Untreated timber

  9. Marmox Multibond 3

    Marmox Multibond Adhesive/ Sealant (Zero VOC) 300ml

    £5.95

    Creates a permanent waterproof barrier, for use with Marmox Thermoblock.  The only sealant available on the market that is completely VOC free.

    Marmox Multibond is a premium sealant-adhesive.  It is made in the UK using the latest environmentally friendly technology to create a 100% solvent free material with absolutely zero VOC’s.

    It is possibly the 'greenest' sealant-adhesive available having no hazardous, environmental or ecological impact.  Unlike other mastics, if it gets on your hands or even clothes it can be washed away with just water without leaving a mark.  Similarly it does not stain stone or ceramic tiling like conventional sealant-adhesives do.  Once Multibond sets it becomes incredibly strong and fully waterproof.

    Being completely solvent free, it is compatible with virtually all materials.  Marmox Multibond is the all-in-one super solution that replaces all your tubes of silicone, acrylic and PU.  It also has acoustic properties so it not only bonds acoustic boards to the floor but also reduces the transmission of impact sound.

    It is also ideal for sealing around shower trays and baths, around bathroom fittings, around kitchen fittings and furniture and also as a grab adhesive.  Because the material is made using a different technology to silicones, acrylics and MS-Polymers, there is no latent chemical process happening within the material that can cause it to discolour; Multibond cannot discolour - it will always stay brilliant white.

    Features

    • Visco elastic (allows for movement)
    • Provides Acoustic Insulation
    • Can not discolour - stays white
    • Can apply to moist surfaces
    • Completely Solvent free
    • Eco friendly
    • Fire rated (4 hours)
    • Very high bond strength

    Applications

    • Sealing Marmox Thermoblock
    • Waterproofing and Bonding
    • Compatible with Polystyrene, Ceramics, Masonry, Wood, Plaster, Plastics, Stone, Metals, even Bitumen!

    When used with Marmox Thermoblock allow 1/2 tube per pack or 1 tube per 40 blocks
