Breathable paint

Graphenstone’s lime and natural mineral-based paints are designed to be breathable and vapour open, and this quality holds significant benefits for both the health of the occupants and indoor air quality. Here’s an explanation of why this feature is advantageous:

Natural Breathability

Lime Render: Lime is a key component in Graphenstone’s paints, and it is inherently breathable. Lime allows the passage of water vapour through the paint film, preventing the accumulation of moisture within the walls. This is particularly important for lime paint in indoor environments where humidity levels can fluctuate, as excessive moisture can lead to issues such as mould growth and deterioration of building materials.

Regulation of Humidity

Moisture Control: breathable interior paints, like those from Graphenstone, contribute to the regulation of indoor humidity levels. By allowing water vapour to escape, these paints help control moisture, reducing the risk of condensation on surfaces. This is crucial for maintaining a healthy indoor environment, as high humidity can contribute to respiratory issues and discomfort.

Prevention of Mould and Mildew

Mould Resistance: The breathable materials of lime and mineral-based paints aid in creating an environment less conducive to mould and mildew growth. Mould thrives in damp conditions, and by allowing surfaces to breathe and remain dry, Graphenstone’s paints contribute to the prevention of mould and mildew, which can be harmful to respiratory health.

Improved Indoor Air Quality

Graphenstone’s lime and natural mineral-based paints are recognised for their minimal presence of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) – less than 0.1%. VOCs are substances that can release into the atmosphere, leading to decreased indoor air quality. By opting for paints that are breathable and low in toxic elements, the quality of indoor air is improved, creating a healthier living environment for occupants.

In summary, the breathability and vapour openness of Graphenstone’s lime and natural mineral-based paints play a crucial role in promoting a healthy indoor environment. These paints contribute to moisture regulation, mould prevention, and improved indoor air quality, creating living spaces that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also conducive to the well-being of those who inhabit them.
