The materials used by acrylic paint manufacturers to create smart painting solutions is astounding. Other than the advanced acrylic based coatings made available by quality acrylic paint supplies, acrylic products can do much more than only add colour to a space. Acrylic based products can act as waterproofing and sealants as well! Here are some handy Paintcor acrylic products to guide you from the foundation phases straight through to the finishing paint touches.
This paint product has been specially designed to sport a flexible adhesion with cement compounds, giving it damp proofing and waterproofing qualities. This is the perfect step for your painting efforts. Along with its plaster durability, it can be used to repair damage to cementitious areas. Acrylatex can even assist repairs to large areas of damage on walls, floors and areas with thin films or where feather edging is necessary. A great added benefit is its ability to be mixed into cement to lessen drying times when projects are time sensitive.
Having a multipurpose product can save you time and effort through coating repairs, coverage, and water repellant properties. Acrylatex is such an effective damp proofing product that it is often used as an acrylic coating that stops damp from rising when constructing fish ponds, flower boxes and features of the like.
Acryseal is a water-based styrene acrylic copolymer manufactured for the sealing of masonry substrates, also known as cement plaster. It is renowned for its binding power and water resistance. This product is used to prevent cement plaster from powdering by binding the acrylic coating with the outer layer of the new wall acting as an effective sealant for the surface.
Acrylunder is an acrylic coating from Paintcor which is used as an undercoat specifically designed to act as the first coat on new cement plaster. AcrylUnder has no added lead and a low VOC and retains excellent adhesion and filling properties that pushes it high up on the list of choices for an undercoat. Acrylunder is well liked as an acrylic undercoating for its binding and hiding power and it’s use as an Alkali resistant filler coat. Acrylunder acts as a great binder between the plaster and the decorative coating.
