LIME SEAL - MOLD RESISTANT TOP COAT
LIME SEAL - MOLD RESISTANT TOPCOAT
Mold Remediation Projects | Mold Clean Up Jobs
Lime Prime is the best primer and Lime Seal is the best topcoat. The best way to finish a mold remediation project is with the right topcoat. Lime Seal stops water from penetrating and provides a scrubbable surface. It is highly fade resistant in harsh sunlight and highly resistant to mold / mildew growth on coated surface.
This is an extremely durable and versatile paint. It's not only fantastic on exterior but is an outstanding wall paint. It sprays, rolls and brushes on with high hiding and coverage.
Excellent over Lime Prime, especially in high mold / moist areas.
TINTABLE: The most common colors are offered here. However, if you want a different color the Bright White can be tinted locally. It works well to tint to most pastel and mid base colors. Deep base colors don't come out as accurately. The lighter to mid tones do tint well and are usually very close. Just tell the paint store sales person to "Tint as a Pastel Base".
MAINTENANCE: When we wash it with Earth Clean mold, algae, dirt and smudges wash off easily, even heavy grease.
This is an outstanding house paint inside and out, walls, trim and siding. If you're looking for a good paint with extra mold resistance that holds up then this is it.
Sample pints are recommended for creating a completed sample in advance.

ZERO VOC COLORANT: Earthpaint has been at the forefront of zero voc colorants since our inception. The colors used to tint our paint are the safest, lowest odor, zero voc colorants we know of. The colors we use are mostly earth oxides.
NOTE ON COLORS & MIXING: Pints come pretinted. For Gallons and Fives the Colorant Containers are shipped separately. These are easily mixed into the product. The easiest way to do this is with a paint mixer attachment on a drill. These mixers are usually only a few dollars and available at any local hardware store. Colors can be stirred in with a stirrer stick but that will take longer. Some people prefer hand mixers or hand mixer beaters for mixing pint containers and smaller volumes.
Product can be taken to a local paint store and tinted, as desired. It can be custom tinted using any of our Colorant Containers. It can also be taken to a local paint store and tinted to a custom color. If tinted locally simply tell them to "Please, Tint as Pastel Base". This will give them the info they need to tint it and it will give you a fairly close color match to whatever pastel base or medium base color you choose. Darker colors will not be as accurate and we don't currently offer an ultra deep base for tinting the darker toned colors.
PRIMER: Lime Prime is usually the best primer to use under this paint for both exterior and interior purposes. For special situations it's always nice to be able to check the finish schedule with the Ask Earthpaint tool or email.
RAW WOOD or DRYWALL: On raw drywall we figure 250-300 sft / gal
2nd COATS: Second coats or painting existing coatings we figure 300-400 sft / gal
POROUS SURFACES: Porous, textured surfaces like Pitted Metal, Concrete Block or Popcorn Ceilings we figure 150-200 sft / gal
SPREAD RATE BACKGROUND: The above estimates are based on experience. Theoretically, any coating rolled at a thickness of 4 mil will cover approximately 401.0 square feet per US Gallon. The roller nap, brush size, spray nozzle size and the person applying the coating will dramatically affect the spread rate of a coating. In general when coating a very porous surface 50% of the spread rate is deducted. When spraying a coating 10% of the spread rate is deducted for spray waste falling to the floor. Usually, an extra half gallon of product is required for the spray pump and the spray lines to work with. Some of this is lost when the sprayer is flushed cleaned.
