Patina Minerale is a transparent vehicle, with colloidal silica base, appropriately modified with organic binders and special water-repellents. Patina Minerale is ideal on mineral substrates such as CalceCruda. The chromatic effect resembles the antique colour washes typical of the mineral systems, with the possibility of obtaining tones and shades of colour on the basis of the techniques and the colours applied. The particular formulation of Patina Minerale allows high vapour permeability to be obtained, associated with good resistance to UV rays and atmospheric agents. Patina Minerale represents the expression of Novacolor “Green Approach”. To reduce the "carbon footprint", Patina Minerale is formulated with aspecial binder. Based on a "mass balance approach" fossil raw materials in production are replaced with sustainable biomass. Patina Minerale represents the expression of Novacolor commitment to the environmental sustainability. To reduce the "carbon footprint", Patina Minerale is formulated with a special binder, made from sustainable biomass, that replaces the fossil raw materials. This is possible thanks to a technical-productive system called “mass balance approach” certified REDcert².
