Lime paint, also known as lime wash, is the most ancient wall paint. Made with slaked lime, it is a natural, minimalistic finish that creates a welcoming and cozy atmosphere. It has that sense of softness that is rarely found in modern paints, enhanced by the faint chiaroscuros typical of lime.
Suitable for both interior and exterior areas, limewash is appreciated for its benefits to indoor air quality. This natural paint has no VOC emissions, and, being lime-based, it has a high pH, which yields natural anti-mould and anti-bacterial properties. It also has high breathability, which allows moisture to evaporate, making it an ideal choice for damp areas.
Finally, during its carbonation phase, it absorbs CO2 from the air, thus reducing its level in the room.
Lime paint is suitable for a wide range of settings, from ancient buildings and rural environments to modern, minimalistic interiors. Due to its benefits to indoor air quality, it is particularly recommended for children’s rooms or in interiors where health and sanitisation are of utmost importance.
Lime Paint is easily and rapidly applied by roller or brush in one or two coats, and has a very high yield per square metre.
