EURO-LIME PAINT INC.
HISTORICAL & MODERN STRUCTURE INTRODUCTION
Late in the seventies/early eighties, I had the necessity to find an appropiate paint for the restoration of old masonry walls and modern structures. The traditional lime-base paint was used for this purpose in the U.S.A. prior to the early fifties, and is still being used in the rest of the world today. For aesthetic reasons, I studied the physical properties of the product and by modifying the formula in Spain, I revitalized the use of it and achieved a much more durable and acceptable material.
This classical reformulated paint has been used successfully in various historical buildings and interiors, including modern structures. There is a growing demand for the use of this traditional material, including the fields of modern architecture and decoration design.
NATURAL PRODUCT COMPOSITION:
CARBOHYDRATED LIME, is a product produced by a process of chemical changes upon calcarous stone. Basically, the chemical composition of the stone is CACO3 (Calcium carbonate) which is an insoluble material. It recovers the same formula after the full process of evaporation and exposure to carbo dioxide, leaving CAO, cacium oxide. The addition of H20, water will make CAOH2 Calcium Hydride. With the exposure to the air and evaporation, it will leave out H20 and aquire CO2. With this reversal process, it became CACO3 again. The quality of the lime produced depends on the quality of the stone as well as the process used.
The classical reformulated Calcium Lime-Base Paint is an exclusive MARIO DE LA FUENTE (TRADE-SECRET) FORMULA, since 1979.
REASONS FOR USING CALCIUM LIME-BASE PAINT:
1. Often new and old masonry walls are never completely dry, usually moisture absorbed from the foundation is present inside and finds its way out through the lime coating without creating a stress, the CalciumLime-Base Paint stays on the wall as part of it, and is subject of aging in appearance.
2. As the paint becomes old, it will acquire concentration of colors in some areas and discoloration in others, (like humans aging) depending on the physical breathing conditions of walls. Thus irregularities give natural authentic antique warming flair.
3. To the sophisticated eye, the Calcium Lime-Base Paint conveys the appropiate look, chalky as temper or fresco, and is guaranteed by MARIO DE LA FUENTE FOR 20 YEARS ON NATURAL PEELING ONLY. AND HIS PAINTERS CONTRACTORS GUARANTEE 20 YEARS LABOR.. NATURAL DISCOLORATION HAS NO GUARANTEE BECAUSE, “IMPERFECTION” IS THE NATURE OF CALCIUM LIME-BASE PAINT.
4. As a benefit from the Earth. Indeed, the second leading use of carbohydrated process lime is for envirionmental applications. This Artisan custom developed paint has the natural prperty to keep clean the Planet’s Heart. As America’s pollution control regulations become increasingly sringent, these applications of Calcium Lime-Base Paint are sure to become even more important to our efforts to maintain a clean environment.
