Pliocem® Pliolite Masonry Paint is a solvent-borne, Pliolite® based masonry paint formulated for weather protection and an attractive, decorative finish. Forming a tough, durable film with superior weathering for exterior use, Pliocem adheres well and acts as a barrier against water and CO2 attack. Use Pliocem® Pliolite Masonry Paint on cement rendering, rough cast, brick, or concrete exterior walls and structures. Apply to new or previously painted masonry to give a high quality, smooth finish. A great advantage of this masonry paint is that it can be used in low temperatures and when rain is imminent.

Proper surface preparation is essential for the success of any protective coating system. Before you begin ensure the area is free from any dust, oil, grease, old coatings and surface contaminants.
The preparation of steelwork prior to painting generally falls into two main areas; that of degreasing and the removal of rust and scale.
All surfaces to be painted should be clean, dry and free from loose and flaking material, dust, grease and millscale, etc.
Prime bare surfaces with Palatine Anti-Corrosive Metal Primer or Palatine All Purpose Primer / Undercoat in accordance with our recommendations
For non-ferrous metals use Palatine Fast Dry etching primer.
Rub down previously gloss painted surfaces with fine waterproof abrasive paper and rinse thoroughly.
Best results are obtained in warm (minimum 10°C), dry conditions.
Mix thoroughly for approximately 2 minutes using a drill stirrer. A wooden batten at least 25mm wide is also ideal.
Apply an even coat using a brush, short to medium pile roller on smooth surfaces and a long pile roller on textured surfaces
For spray application by either airless or conventional spray a dilution ration of no more than 10% is recommended with Palatine White Spirit by volume applying thin coats allowing each one to dry before applying subsequent coats.
Once dried, a second coat can be applied at full strength. This will prolong the life and performance of the coating.
Thinning and Cleaning: Use Palatine White Spirit.
If using more than one batch of the same colour, intermix before use
