Acrylan Silicon is a silicon acrylic product for exterior use, which offers excellent water vapour permeability, low water absorption, long life and at the same time durable and elegant decoration. Unlike other products, in addition to excellent resistance to UV-radiation and weathering, enables the moisture that is trapped inside the wall to escape easily in the atmosphere which in combination with the high surface waterproofing prevents problems such as blisters, cracking, peeling and formation of mold on the surface of the building. It applies to all new or old surfaces such as plaster, concrete or surfaces leveled with putty after appropriate preparation. These properties make Acrylan Silicon ideal for areas with high humidity and extreme weather conditions as well as for the restoration of listed buildings, actively contributing to maintaining the longevity of the building.
• Excellent resistance to UV-radiation and weathering
• Maximum Liquid water permeability (Class III)
• Maximum Water vapor permeability (Class I)
• Long-time protection
• Facilitates trapped moisture to escape
Excellent resistance to adverse weather conditions.
No film change (inflation, cracking, flaking, chalking,etc.).
No shade or gloss change (ELOT EN ISO 2810).
It is breathable. The film allows water vapors to escape from the wall surface, preventing it from mould and fungi growth.
Contributes towards the improvement of indoor air quality, by reducing indoor humidity and preventing from mould and fungi growth.
Positive contribution to energy saving; it helps reducing moisture (which is an important thermal loss factor).
Ideal for areas exposed to high humidity and adverse weather conditions.
It is suggested for renovating commercial or residential old and historical buildings.
Offers long-time protection.
It is recoatable with any acrylic paint of VITEX.

Stir well before use. Apply two coats by roller, brush or airless spray gun diluted up to 10% with water. Do not apply at temperature below 5°C, above 35°C and / or relative humidity above 70%. Avoid application when rain or frost is expected in the next 48 hours.
It is touch-dry after 30-60 minutes and can be recoated after 3-4 hours. Drying time depends on weather conditions (humidity and temperature).
Allow at least 3 weeks before cleaning and washing newly painted surfaces with Acrylan Silicon. Wash gently with water using a soft sponge. In case of bad stains, use a mild colourless detergent or soapy water.
