Eloro Silox 1.3

Eloro Silox 1.3

Siloxanic wall coating based on colloidal silica; medium size.

ELORO SILOX is an innovative colored coating in paste based on a special stabilized colloidal silica and one
highly water-repellent siloxane structure. It is indicated in the finishing of facades of new and old buildings for internal and external uses.
The final properties of the coating derive from the synergistic action of the constituent elements;
The stabilized particles of colloidal silica confer:
· High adhesion: the fixing properties of silica gel are well known;
· Breathability: the original microcrystalline structure has the same porosity of the plaster;
· Water repellency: reduces water absorption due to microporous structure;
· Effectiveness in reducing the “dirt intake” of the colored coating;
· Stability: lowers the “shrinkage” tension of the colored finish with consequent reduction in the possibility of micro-cracks
superficial capillaries;
The chemical nature of the binder based on acryl-siloxane resins gives the product a high water repellency that hinders
the absorption of meteoric water, while the microporous structure of the modified polysiloxanes allows the vapor to escape
water from the walls through the cladding, giving it at the same time a high perlante anti-drip effect.
Once applied it gives a pleasant scratched aesthetic effect.

Description

■ TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS
ELORO SILOX 1.3 is an innovative coloured paste wall covering, based on stabilized colloidal silica and acryl-siloxanic binders. It’s a
special breathable, water repellent wall covering used as a finishing coat for indoors and outdoors, recommended for both new and
old buildings.
The final properties of the coating are derived from the synergistic action of the components;
Stabilized colloidal silica gives:
• High adhesion: Fixative properties of silica gel are well known;
• Breathability: Microcrystalline structure has the same porosity of the plaster;
• Water Resistance: Because microporous structure decreases the absorption of water;
• Dirtiness: The coloured coating is naturally cleaner than a traditional top coating;
• Stability: The surface of the coating is subjected to less stress. This reduces the possibility of microcracks;
The chemical nature of the binder based on acryl – siloxanic molecules gives the product a high water repellency that hinders the
absorption of rainwater. At the same time the microporous structure of the modified polysiloxanes allows the exit of the water vapor
from the walls through the coating. ELORO SILOX shows a typical pleasant aesthetic effect and an attractive drop effect.

■ COMPOSITION AND USE
ELORO SILOX 1.3 is made up of acrylic siloxanic binders, stabilized colloidal silica, siliceous inert particles, selected marble granules,
inorganic photo resistant pigments and specific additives. It can be used on any lime-based or cement-based surfaces, treated first if
necessary. Thanks to its well-balanced formulation, to its easiness of application and traditional aesthetic effect, it’s used to decorate
and restore prestigious buildings, for the refreshment of old town areas and sea places.

■ PREPARING SURFACES AND APPLICATION
The walls must be seasoned and dry, free from dust and dirt, oil, vegetable colonies, evidence of salts, residual of working. Walls not
perfectly anchored must be brushed and cleaned. Very absorbent surfaces or with significant differences in absorption, or crumbly
plaster must be wetted with SILOX PRIMER or with IDROFIX DM 50, consolidating fixative. In the event of not crumbly or
synthetic plaster is sufficient to isolate with a layer of MICRO SILOX. This product must be applied following the instructions
carefully, first with a stainless steel trowel and then with a plastic trowel.
