Weathertex AP77 flexible smooth masonry paint review - a great, long lasting, self-cleaning paint

Wethertex Masonry Paint Review

By Mike Gregory

 

Wethertex AP77 flexible smooth masonry paint is an exterior product used to coat masonry surfaces such as render, brick, rough-cast, pebble dash and stone. You can buy this product in 5, 10 or 15 litre tubs. The AP77 is breathable, self-cleaning, very water resistant, flexible and will stick hard and fast. You can use either brush and roller, or airless sprayer to apply this paint. It is also self-priming over stone, eliminating the need for a separate product. This is my Wethertex masonry paint review, I hope you find it useful.

 

Application and Performance of Wethertex Masonry Paint

 

You can use Wethertex masonry paint straight from the tin with ease, however the opacity is very good, meaning you can dilute with clean water without having to apply additional coats.

The overall finish is awesome!! Very flat matt with little to no sheen. This eliminates any danger of flashing and you’re left with a rich colour and luxurious looking surface. Because of the low sheen level, imperfections to the surface are masked well.

 

Wethertex smooth masonry paint as plasticy as some of the other popular brands, however you can still flood surface cracks to hid them brilliantly.

 

Longevity

 

I’ll be honest, this is a premium quality product and one that goes under the radar a little bit. As well as the finish, Wethertex smooth masonry paint is highly breathable, meaning you can use it on render which holds onto a water, or even render containing lime cement. Between its breathability and high adhesion, you know this product will last!

 

There’s more! The self-cleaning qualities of this paint means water, however dirty, will run off without leaving a mark. You can expect Wethertex smooth masonry paint to last a good 20 years before having to redecorate.
