  • Recommended for protecting structural elements in concrete and cementitious mortars, such as bridges and viaducts.
  • It may also be applied to protect the concrete structural elements of industrial, commercial and residential buildings, since the product is ideal for areas where the use of solvents is not recommended for health, safety or environmental reasons.

CIN, the leading Portuguese brand in the Iberian paint and varnish market, and which is present in various international markets, has just launched a new C-CRYLâ W680 MATT coating to fully protect concrete.

This new coating has a low level of VOC, is permeable to water vapour, has low permeability to carbon dioxide and water, and displays good adhesion.

This product is fire retardant and available in a wide range of colours, in unlimited amounts and in the Colormix 3G fine tuning. It may be used directly on concrete or cement surfaces, or as a finish for water-based intumescent paints.

The 12-680 C-CRYL W680 MATT allows you to obtain a matte finish in protecting structural concrete and cementitious mortars for repair and finishing; displays good finish and opacity even in roller applications.

The new water-based acrylic coating to fully protect concrete by CIN has the EC Marking, since it meets the requirements of Standard EN 1504-2. This is a product that complies with the principles of Protection against Ingress, Moisture Control and Increasing Resistivity.

CIN is undeniably a benchmark in the coatings market, and the new product is the result of a continuous investment by the brand in Research & Development in service to this segment.
