CIN launches new concrete varnish for architectural projects

CIN, a Portuguese brand and Iberian leader in the coatings market, has launched BETOCIN WB, a new product for the protection and decoration of porous concrete surfaces, cement mortars, stone and brick masonry.

This new concrete varnish was tested according to the EN 1504-2:2004 standard and achieved a CE marking as an “Acrylic varnish for the protection against ingress, humidity control and increasing resistivity.”

Formulated exclusively with inorganic colourants and with a low CO2 permeability, the new high-quality water-based acrylic varnish has a robust exterior performance.


BETOCIN WB highlights the texture of the surface where it is applied, resulting in beautiful decorative effects and excellent protection against water ingress (low water permeability) while still allowing the surface to breathe (high water vapour permeability).

BETOCIN WB has a very limited contribution to fire rating (B-s1,d0; EN 13501-1) and the highest classification (A+) in "Indoor air quality" according to French regulation.

BETOCIN WB high-quality concrete varnish is available in a semi-matt finish in a 10 colour palette providing colourful choices to concrete decoration and also as a transparent for a more natural finish.
