Finish made up lime putty and kaolin with pearl effect
Ecoton Star - Natural pearlescent effect!
Ecoton Star a breathable finish especially designed in order to improve home quality, because it can set wall damp levels. The binder used, long seasoned lime putty, is a natural and ecological product made up of calcium hydroxide (portlandite) and water, with high features of plasticity and thixotropy. Lime putty is a highly breathable material which can absorb and release damp, regulating the level of moisture in the surrounding rooms. Moreover, it is self-sealing, it has a great ability to adhere to many surfaces and it is very workable. The addition of kaolin to the mixture gives Ecoton Star great breathability features. The kaolin has purifying, bactericidal and absorbent properties, which make Ecoton Stara unique product. Finally, the shiny pearlescent effect of the kaolin powder gives Ecoton Star a bright aspect. The final result is a wide pastel colour range thanks to the addition of refined coloured sands, a blend of natural clays, which are not dangerous for human health and for the environment.
Ecoton Star is to be applied on a clean surface, free from any traces of dust, dirt, oils, greases and waxes. It is to be applied in two coats, fresh on fresh, with a stainless steel spatula, until reaching 2mm thickness and then work it with a sponge trowel soaked in water. The application needs to be done without interruptions from corner to corner.
Ecoton Star is ready to use. It is our particular choice to sell all our products in paste form, because being the product ready to use the step of the preparation of the product is avoided and the building site remains clean. Moreover, powder products are considered to be as concrete, while our products are 100% natural and when compared to concrete that tends to crush with the passing of time, lime putty products get harder and harder.
