BADISOF PLUS NATUREL
Ecological, economic, made in France, Badisof Plus is an aerial limewash paint, 100% mineral, for indoor and outdoor use. It can be applied with a brush or smoothed. With the brushed technic, it has a more grainy appearance than the Badisof ; smoothed, it looks like a beautiful Italian stucco and reveals all its nuances.
The natural Badisof, therefore not tinted, has the color of lime (off-white, light cream). You can apply it as is, dye it with our Ocres de France pigments or with the sof-doses.

The limewash paint : better for you and for the environment
Why choose our limewash paint instead of a classic paint ?
Because it has a much lower level of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and therefore much less harmful. The “VOC-free” statements you see on ecological paints don’t mean the paint doesn’t contain them at all, because it’s technically impossible to do without them. This statement is used for paints containing a concentration of OC of less than 5 g per litre. The rate of C.O.V contained in our paints is less than 5 g per litre.
What are our limewash paints made of ?
The rate of C.O.V contained in our paints is less than 5 g per litre. Everything that is natural is privileged in our paints : mineral pigments are used to elaborate the hues, which are therefore more pastel than in classical paint, and of course French lime, which is a limestone used for centuries. However, like all powders, lime is irritating to the respiratory tract: wearing a mask and gloves is strongly recommended during the implementation of the product. But once the preparation is on the wall, this product is 100% safe, without any danger.
Our paints are prepared in powder, without water, to avoid the addition of preservatives and extra weight, which would increase transportation costs. Water will be added at the time of application.
Our buckets are recyclable, in the yellow buckets, and can also be cleaned and reused.
For all these reasons, our lime paints are labelled A+.
Badisof Plus, what is it exactly ?
The Ocres de France's company was one of the pioneers in the manufacture of ready-to-use lime paint more than 20 years ago.
Badisof Plus is a ready-to-use limewash paint, 100% mineral, for indoor and outdoor use. It can be applied with a brush or smoothed. With the brushed technic, it has a more grainy appearance than the Badisof ; smoothed, it looks like a beautiful Italian stucco and reveals all its nuances.
For the outside, it allows you to change the colour of your facade on a lime facade or after a Sofix application without embarking on major renovation work, while retaining the structure of your current support. The Badisof Plus being thin film, it will not catch any irregularities or holes. For this, we advise you to turn to a coating (Sofodor, Sofolith) or to fill them first with a suitable undercoating (Rénodress, Tradichaux).
Indoor, you can use two techniques : brushed or smoothed. Thanks to its material and the warmth of our tints, the brushed technic make us rembember the authenticity of the old walls. It is more granular than Badisof. But unlike Badisof, the Badisof Plus also allows to create smooth finish (stucco), silky and discreetly nuanced. It is applied with a trowel, on a suitable support or after the apply of a primer. On a healthy support, without irregularities, the Sofix will be ideal before a Badisof Plus.
Badisof Plus exists in its natural version (without the addition of any pigment) or factory tinted (42 colors to choose from). These 42 colours correspond to sof-doses (pigment mixtures prepared by us) : you can colour the Badisof/Badisof Plus yourself with the sof-doses. A sof-dose in a 4kg bucket corresponds exactly to the tint that would have the coloured Badisof/Badisof Plus, tinted in our factory. This option is interesting when you want to be able to lighten a colour. Example : instead of buying a Badisof Plus Amande, you can buy a natural Badisof Plus + 1 sof-dose Amande, which you pour only half or 3/4 to have a lighter shade. Buying the sof-dose + Badisof/Badisof Plus also slightly reduces the manufacturing time of your limewash painting (24-48h on average). However, be careful to mix it with an electric stirrer in a homogeneous way !
And finally, if none of the 42 shades, even brighter, satisfy you, why not create your own color ? You can colour Badisof (Plus) yourself with our Ocres de France pigments ! On each pigment sheet, a small plate shows you the pigment rendering at 5% in the Badisof Plus and at 20% (maximum saturation). In short, the possibilities are endless !
