Lithochrome paint

Postby Terry W » June 14th, 2017, 8:34 am

I was talking to the manufacture of Lithochrome a while ago and kind of forgot about this until today when painting a bunch of pavers.

For those like me in extreme sunny areas, fading is an ongoing issue with pavers. After my conversation I was told that due to costs the UV inhibitors are not mixed in the colors anymore, however it is in the clear. So I have been doing my usual spray followed up by a clear. I don't have anything out more than about 6 months with the clear on it so I don't know if it helps or not yet.

I know of some others having fading issues as well so this may help.

Living in Arizona, I can understand the issue. I use the high temperature spray paint designed for engines and BBQs. I have not received any feedback about fading; although, I probably don't do as many pavers as you do.

Is this something new? I really never considered using clear because I thought black had the UV in it.

hummm.......

I don't know why I have always used clear ... just one of those things. I spray the black so its good and I lightly clear. I don't apply as much clear as black.
I hate when formula's change and they don't tell us. Fading is not a good thing

I'm going to keep going as is until I get a complaint. I haven't seen any fading on anything to date. If it's bad, I'll offer to touch it up.
