Traditional lime paints have problems of strength, cracking and durability. On the other hand, lime mortars require a longer setting than the construction requires today. These facts make it clear that natural lime products require an additive to strengthen it.
After a long time of research, Antonio León, president of the company, found in graphene technology a material that allows to produce an inorganic, resistant to alkalis, strong and flexible product. However, it is an expensive and water-repellent product that, while achieving good technical properties in the product, was not economically viable. This changed when a natural hydraulic graphene polymer was obtained, that uses a small amount of graphene, this being the first know-how acquired by Antonio León.
Graphene acts as a structural support at the molecular level. Thanks to graphene we obtain a natural product that:
It is washable: natural paints can not be washed.
It is flexible: it does not crack and it is possible, for the first time, to use a roller for natural paints without resin, being easy to apply.
Improves adhesion on many substrates: physical-chemical adhesion improves performance, durability and application. Natural lime paints mainly have adhesion on lime mortars.
It has thermal conductivity: it minimizes the thermal gradient and is more stable under extreme climatic conditions
