Resene Acrylic Undercoat

Resene Acrylic Undercoat
general purpose undercoat - exterior/interior - waterborne
Environmental Choice approved

Resene Acrylic Undercoat is an easy brushing, quick, hard drying undercoat with exceptional flow and sanding characteristics. While specifically designed for maximum benefit under waterborne enamels, such as Resene Enamacryl and Resene Lustacryl, Resene Acrylic Undercoat tinted to the correct colour is ideal for use under a wide range of waterborne and solventborne topcoats to improve the hiding of the paint system.

Resene Acrylic Undercoat gives all the hiding benefits associated with Resene Enamel Undercoat combined with the advantages of being waterborne, such as easy clean up in water, lower odour and therefore the desirability of using it with both acrylic and enamel topcoats. Suitable for interior and exterior use, it can be used in most paint systems as a substitute for Resene Enamel Undercoat.

Typical uses: All exterior and interior prepared surfaces, block and brickwork, cement plasters, cloth and woven wallcoverings, fibre and particle board, furniture, paperfaced plasterboard (GIB®, Gyprock®), repaint old work, timber (including Matai, Spotted Gum and Totara), wallboards, wallpaper.

Resene Vinyl Wallpaper Sealer

Resene Vinyl Wallpaper Sealer
vinyl wallpaper sealer – interior - solventborne

Those familiar with painting over wallpaper will shudder at the mention of plasticiser. Painting directly over vinyl wallpaper can cause the plasticiser hidden in the vinyl wallpaper to migrate through to the topcoats affecting the cure of the coating and leaving a sticky surface.

To alleviate this problem many simply removed the wallpaper, expending much time and energy in the process, before coating the surface in paint. While this resolves the sticky surface issue, it is a resource intensive option and not for the fainthearted.

Recognising the need for a quick and easy method of coating vinyl wallpaper, Resene Vinyl Wallpaper Sealer is designed to be applied direct to the vinyl wallpaper, sealing in the plasticiser leaving the surface ready for finishing with the desired topcoats.

Those wishing to take advantage of the texture of the existing wallpaper can safely seal the vinyl wallpaper with Resene Vinyl Wallpaper Sealer and follow this in the desired topcoats leaving a freshly coated surface with the texture of the original wallpaper.

Typical uses: Wallpaper.
