Frequently Asked Questions

What do we mean by breathable?

Breathability is a term used within the building industry to describe how a substrate allows water molecules and air molecules to pass through it.  Our independent scientific testing confirmed that Emperor products had little effect on breathability and did not restrict the movement of air.

How have Emperor Paint products been tested?

The Emperor range of products have been independently tested by a United Kingdom Accredited Testing Laboratory (UKAS) to confirm their performance.  The products were awarded two certifications : ETAG 004 : the products act as external thermal insulation composite and ETAG 034 : which confirms their 25 year hygrothermal performance – i.e. accelerated weathering testing

What is the coverage of these products?

It varies on different substrates, but generally Emperor Masonry Paint has a rate of approximately 5-6m² per litre. Specific details about the coverage of each of the products can be found on the datasheet, which can be downloaded on the product page.

Can you apply Emperor Masonry Paint over pre-painted bricks and substrates?

Emperor Masonry Paint can be applied to both pre-painted and non-painted surfaces. Simply use our Emperor Masonry Primer on bare non-painted surfaces to ensure adhesion.


Can I apply Emperor Paint In low temperatures?

Yes, but it cannot be applied in temperatures less than 5°C.

How long should I leave before painting the second coat?

Emperor Masonry Paint can be recoated after approximately 12hrs at 20°C. Leave slightly longer depending on the temperature.

Once the surface is completely dry, which depends on the air temperature at the time.

How do you apply Emperor Masonry Paint?

Emperor Paint products can be applied using a brush, roller or airless spray machine. Specific details about how to prepare the surface and how to apply the products can be found on the datasheet, which can be downloaded on the product page.
