What is similar to Graphenstone Biosphere? Graphenstone Ambient Pro+ Air is the best alternative.

Biosphere Premium was a natural matt lime paint with graphene technology for exterior walls.

The combination of graphene technology with a high quality lime paint gives all the benefits of a natural lime paint (anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-mould and highly breathable) while the graphene ensures that the product is also washable, flexible and water repellent without the addition of acrylics or toxic chemical compounds.

Ideal for construction, restoration and repainting. Made of a high mineral ingredients this paint achieves a fire rating of A1 (EU) and Class 0 (BS Building Regs). It is also certified for moisture control in concrete surface protection systems (EN 1504-2).

Further Information:

If the substrate presents algae, mould, fungi and / or other impurities, it is recommended to do a thorough cleaning, eliminating it entirely and with specific products for this purpose.

Mineral substrates must be at least 28 days old before application. Substrates must also be resistant to high alkalinity. If in doubt apply to a test area first.

In the case of rain (for exterior applications) let the substrate dry for at least 48 hours before applying the primer and protect the treated surface from rain for at least 4 days.

Do not apply to surfaces in constant contact with water.

Total curing occurs during the first 30 days. We recommend to avoid cleaning and/or rubbing the painted surface during that time.

How to prep walls for painting

See the Biosphere Technical Data Sheets for full details (above), however in brief:

For all surfaces

  • Ensure the substrate is dry, sound and clean.
  • If the substrate has salt deposits, brush and apply Graphenstone Neutralysal Premium
  • If the substrate contains a high moisture level, apply Graphenstone StopWater Premium

For previously painted walls

  • When applying over glossy paint, sand the surface lightly to create a "key".
  • Remove flaking and unstable paint. Create a uniform surface with Graphenstone Filler Primer

For unpainted surfaces

You can prime walls with:

How to prepare Graphenstone Biosphere paint

  • Stir and dilute with water to 10-15% of the product weight (150-200 ml of water per litre of product approx.), ensure a homogeneous mixture. Avoid excessive shaking to minimize bubbles. 
  • Apply 2 or 3 coats evenly  by roller, brush or airless spray gun.
  • Note: an excess of product by layers can generate micro-cracks.
