Protective, anti-carbonatative painting of concrete surfaces


What are the aspects to consider when choosing the right paint?

When choosing a paint to paint concrete works or structures, there are several aspects to consider in order to make the right choice.

Here are some key points to consider:

Resistance and durability:

Concrete paint must be resistant to weather, moisture, sunlight and chemicals.

Make sure the paint is specially formulated to resist these elements to ensure durability.


It is important that the paint adheres firmly to the concrete surface.

Ensure that the paint is specifically designed for concrete and has good adhesion capacity.

Type of paint:

There are different types of paint for concrete: acrylic, epoxy or polyurethane.

Each type of paint has its own specific characteristics and performance. Consider the intended use of the surface to be protected and the specific requirements of the project to determine the most suitable type of paint.


The finish of concrete paint can vary from matt to glossy.

The choice of finish depends on aesthetic preferences and the intended use of the area to be painted. For example, a matt finish may be more suitable for floors or high-traffic surfaces, while a glossy finish may be preferred for walls or decorative elements.

Application and maintenance:

Also consider the ease of paint application and maintenance requirements.

Some paints may require the use of additional primers or top coats, while others may require periodic maintenance, such as repairing any peeling or faded areas.

Standards and safety:

Ensure that the concrete paint complies with current European standards and safety guidelines.

Ensure that it is free of toxic substances or substances harmful to health and that it meets the safety standards for its intended use.

By considering these aspects, you will be able to choose the most suitable concrete paint for the specific needs of your project, ensuring a protected, durable and long-lasting surface. Azichem's acrylic paints from the Protech line (Protech WAC, Protech WAC-T, Protech WAC-RC and Protech AC-P) and the Syntech line (Syntech Bioflex, Syntech Flexipur Mono and Syntech Pavistrong) perfectly support the above aspects.
