BAUWERK Colour Lime Wash Paints are purely mineral based. They are manufactured from calcium carbonate, the same material sea shells are made from. When you paint with it the only chemical reaction that takes place is the absorption of atmospheric CO2 to convert the lime paint back to lime stone.
We colour our Limewash with natural pigments, this makes our colours completely different, as when light hits the wall the colours look like no other.
You can safely paint your home without any fear of breathing in fumes that are harmful to you or your children. We make the paint without solvents or volatile organic compounds (VOC). Because of that, Bauwerk Lime Paint is fire proof.
The paint can be used inside or outside, even in high humidity environments, such as bathrooms.
The paint is not film-forming, like a plastic paint, it allows walls to breathe and be part of your micro-climate inside your home.
We don't use biocides or other preservatives, our lime wash has natural anti-bacterial properties.
Enjoy the emotional depth and the play of light on our colours, they react very dynamically to changing light conditions.
Express yourself and create your own unique finish - it is simple and fun!
