Hydro - Viero

Product Spotlight: Hydro by Viero

574 466 Daniel Fountain

Since its launch at the end of 2015, this highly water repellent finish has really captured the imagination of Viero’s client base.

Hydro is a Marmorino plaster based on lime putty which is suitable for both internal and external environments. This highly durable product presents excellent characteristics of colour stability, meaning it will not yellow over time, boasts a high water vapour permeability, excellent fire resistance and offers a natural organic appearance, typical of traditional lime based plasters.

Unsurprisingly, Hydro is a popular finish in areas experiencing direct water. This product is perfect for luxury wet rooms, swimming pool areas as well as external elevations.

A professional review
Hydro has received some fantastic feedback from not only leading architects and interior designers but also highly skilled craftsmen are using this material on their very own projects. We thought we’d share a review from Faux Creation principle Jason Ebers…

What excites you about this product?
Marmorin Hydro is exciting because it has been created expressly for where water flows. It has the same visual impact of other plasters but has a hydrophobic (water repellent) and washable texture that makes it perfect for contemporary wet-rooms and swimming pool areas.

So, we can say goodbye to waterlogged damaged surfaces and moldy corners?
Exactly! This plaster has water repellent properties and a sealer that is integral to the finish. It’s not topical and sitting on the surface. It’s an exciting innovation from Viero’s laboratories.

Why is it better than other products on the market?
Because it’s lime based and hydrophobic, its look and durability are distinct from other specialist products on the market. Hydro is a slaked lime-based Marmorino plaster containing oxide powder pigments, fine grained marble powders, hydrophobic additives and adhesion promoters. The surfaces can be compacted and polished with a stainless steel trowel to create smooth organic movement or a more open pitted effect depending on design requirements.

It’s a product designed for wet areas but have you used it elsewhere?
Yes, we’re using it in all areas of high-end luxury developments from public spaces to exteriors, because of its durability and exterior capabilities there are no areas that we wouldn’t consider using this plaster.

What is the lifetime of this product?
Being lime-based, technically it is timeless although additional sealer coats are recommended every 3 to 5 years in wet room areas. We always recommend our Clients book us for maintenance work as we can then ensure that the finish stays looking as good for years to come, and we can control the outcome.

You really put products through their paces in the studio here at Faux Creation, constantly testing and pushing the products to see what can be achieved. Why do you like working with Viero products so much?
Viero has a very high quality product range that offers controlled and consistent outcomes and versatility when creating more bespoke artisanal finishes. That’s absolutely critical to Faux Creation.

Product Spotlight: Captivating Coral by Sanderson

1000 586 Daniel Fountain

More than just a pretty pastel, coral has been plucked from the depths of the ocean and brought into interiors. This cheerful shade has been chosen by Sanderson as a key colour for 2016, and this season the team are pairing it with on-trend blues and greys to bring a new dimension to decorating.

Blending coral and blue brings a sophisticated, Mediterranean aesthetic into the home. Coral is synonymous with spring and summer, but by combining it with blue, it is given a multi-seasonal appeal. Mint is a complementary colour for both shades and introduces a colour pop to this scheme.

Captivating Coral by Sanderson

Grey adds an edgier side to coral, giving a hint of masculinity and creating a modern haven. Grey tempers the bright shade of coral, yet still allows it to shine. Use cream accessories to soften this combination and introduce textured accessories, such as quilted throws and woven rugs for a cosy finish.
