Frequently Asked Question’s
Generally, most concrete and masonry surfaces contain some flaws like hairline cracks, porous surface finish, air pockets and so on. These are weak spots where moisture can penetrate the surface and cause further problems like dampness, mould formation and the like. Using a breathable paint such as our Smart Quartz Paint allows the wall to breath by letting moisture escape in the form of vapour while preventing any further moisture from penetrating the wall from the outside.
Due to the unique Quartz like structure of our Smart Quartz Paint, the surface of the wall is left with microscopic pours that only allow moisture to exit in the form of vapour while simultaneously preventing water on the outside from penetrating the surface.
Our Smart Quartz Paint technology allows the wall to breathe while the hydrophobic technology creates water beading and prevents water from penetrating into the surface. The combination of these two properties makes our Smart Quartz Paint a superior coating system with added durability as well as dirt repellence.
The beading effect of our Smart Quartz Paint is apparent during weathering like rain and is retained throughout our paint’s service life which is covered under our guarantee based on the category of Skora Paint you have chosen to use.
Our Smart Quartz Paint owes its extreme durability to the properties of low water absorption combined with high breathability. These properties are a result of the unique Quartz formulation that forms a strongly hydrophobic and waterproof layer to protect your walls.
Quartz and silicone resin exterior paint have been used effectively across Europe for decades. Such paint is commonly used abroad and tends to last well over 20 years in varied climates and under varied conditions without any need for renovation or repainting.
For the absolute best result, it is recommended that any existing paint on the application surface has to be thoroughly removed before applying any of our coatings. Applying our paint over an existing one may compromise the breathability of our paint as the old coat of paint may be a film forming coating.
Walls with salt damage must always be properly treated thoroughly and washed to ensure a clean application surface. Applying our Skora Smart Quartz Paint on an untreated wall with salt damage may compromise the quality of finish as well as the durability and life span of the paint.
The quality of an exterior paint isn’t just measured by the colour, vibrancy and finish that it achieves but also by the amount of time is protects your walls.

Our Smart Quartz Paint on the other hand has been specifically developed to protect walls as well as beautify them over a long period of time. Our paints last well beyond the average paint which ultimately proves to be more economical that having to spend on repainting year after year. This makes using our Smart Quartz Paint undoubtedly worthwhile in the long run.
