The stabilised potassium silicate solutions produced by the IQE Group are used as binders to produce mineral type silicate paints. Nowadays, this type of paint provides an excellent decorative and protective coating for buildings due to its interesting properties:

  • Long duration
  • Petrification
  • Excellent water vapour permeability
  • Low tendency to soiling

Furthermore, the IQE Group offers the paint sector an outstanding extender for titanium dioxide. It is an aluminium and sodium silicate, SODASIL® P95, which is extensively used in the manufacture of water-based emulsion paints. In a large number of formulations, it can replace up to 25% by weight of titanium dioxide, enhancing the brightness and opacity properties of the original paint.

"Paints are a world in their own right and one cannot escape from them."
