Made in Australia since 1920, Boncote® Cement Paint is a traditional cement based finish, hand-made using time-honoured methods.

Boncote® is a highly durable Portland cement-based protective coating that ‘cross-links’ with existing masonry to weatherproof, colour, protect and beautify. Boncote® cures over time to give a soft, subtle and slightly mottled finish, which characteristically shows subtle streaks around window mouldings and other horizontal exposed surfaces caused by rainwater run-off. Boncote® is non film-forming, so allows walls to ‘breathe’ and does not crack, peel or flake (provided the render has no hairline cracking or efflourescence). Resists mould and airborne pollutant pickup.
