Glixtone AC-1 High Performance masonry paint – White Review

 

Here we have a review for the Glixtone Ac-1 High Performance Masonry Paint in White. By Ross Ratty

Pros

  • Anti fungicidal
  • Thin- Easy to pour
  • Nice Coverage
  • Biocidal

Cons

  • Seems very airy, but may help in drying
  • Seems almost too thin

Upon using this for the first time, it seems to have an amazing coverage, and a very bright white finish. Generally, i’m impressed. Straight out of the tin, it cuts in well, and it provides a wonderfully even-rolled finish; using a medium pile Albany roller sleeve. The walls were bleached prior to painting, and i’m hoping that the biocide keeps the white nice and bright for at least a couple of years.

The COSHH (control of substances hazardous to health), describes the product as:
High Performance, Water-Borne, Exterior Coating with outstanding anti-carbonation properties.
High moisture vapour permeability for uses on substrates that themselves have vapour permeability, for example, Wychert/Cob buildings finished in Lime Render.

It also classifies itself as Elastomeric and exceptionally flexible- moves with the substrate.

The product does state that it’s good for up to 30 years. I’m gonna say that in 25 years of decorating I’ve never used a paint that has looked good after 5 years so that remains to be seen.

It also states that it’s good for seaside areas. Let’s see if salt water stains it in time.

On the whole I give this product a ‪9/10‬, it has excellent capacity, and my only concern is that it’s a little thin. It has a slight sheen, but clearly that’s just to allow water runoff.
