Within its relationship for consulting and support of restoration bodies and professionals in building recovery and renovation, Primat offers a unique and unrivalled ability in the creation of custom-made materials to be used for restoration and conservation rehabilitation interventions.
Mortars, plasters and paints are produced based on specific needs and using selected quality raw materials.
For projects covering restoration of architectural heritage and building renovation, as well as for new buildings and interior design, we can comply with special requirements, delivering specific finishes and unique effects.
Binders are essential components: they influence mechanical properties, compatibility with supports and mixes workability. Primat has gained a wide experience in natural hydraulic limes, air limes (slaked limes), pozzolana sands and elements improving hydraulic activity and more recently also in clays.
Choosing the right plaster is crucial for both success and duration of any intervention. Custom-made plaster formulas can deal with damp and salts occurrences, thermal and acoustic insulation, structural and reinforcement problems.
They are the skin of the building and characterize its aesthetic appearance, but they are also the layer most exposed to atmospheric agents, and therefore accurate study and formula research are needed. Based on hydraulic limes or slacked limes, with silica or carbon inerts, with or without pigments, there really are many possible different solutions, as well as application techniques.
Paints protect and colour surfaces and, in the case of a recovery, they help in consolidation of supports. Binders can be based on lime, liquid potassium silicate, silica, tempera with casein and natural oil, while pigments are natural earths and/or mineral oxides, stable against UV rays and with excellent chromatic results.
Clay is a fully recyclable and natural material, and also a very efficient thermal and dampness regulator. It suprises for its ability to fit in modern environments as well as in the restoration of historical buildings.
They are special materials requiring specific techniques and expertise. For wood recovery we use natural products such as boiled or raw linseed oil. Custom-made mortars can reproduce the material effect of natural stone.
They do not alter the aspect of surfaces, but are essential to deal with specific problems. Very careful selection is needed, to avoid negative and often irreversible outcomes.
