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
- Anti fungicidal
- Thin- Easy to pour
- Nice Coverage
- 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.
