2(i) How the One-Line Specifications work

The following is a step-by-step guide to the One-Line Specifications.

One line spec

You have now reached a unique Resene specification number. This number describes the generic paint system, appropriate for your selected Substrate, Environment, Paint type and Gloss level.

The Resene One-Line Specification consists of a generic specification, a unique specification number, surface preparation, list of products and Data Sheets that make up the selected paint system.

Resene offers clear and simple paint specification guidelines, designed to make specifying the right paint system easier. Available in hard copy form in the Resene One-Line Specification Manual below or as part of the Resene EzySpec online system.

Writing specifications can be a time consuming process, particularly when new substrates or coatings are desired. With endless combinations of substrates and materials, it is often difficult to know which system is the best system in each situation. One-Line Specifications will not be suitable for all projects. Resene also offers a customised specification process where Resene technical experts will write a specification based on your brief. If you are in doubt about any aspect of your Resene specification, please contact your local Resene Representative or ColorShop who will be happy to assist.

To simplify the specification writing process, Resene offer Resene EzySpec, an innovative method of determining the right paint system for the project online. Based on the ever popular Resene One-Line Specification Manual, including systems and information from the hard copy manual held by many specifiers, Resene EzySpec is designed to facilitate access to all parts of the One-Line Specification System by utilising the latest online technology.

To view specifications and data sheets you will need Acrobat Reader. All surface preparation and data sheets highlighted in light blue in the pdfs are clickable links - simply click on them to view the appropriate surface preparation or data sheet.

To create a One-Line Specification for your project select either the substrate listed above or refer to 2(iii) One-Line Specifications Index for a list of substrates. Once you reach the appropriate specification page simply read through the information and use the tables to determine interior or exterior exposure, solventborne vs waterborne, desired gloss level and so on.
