Resene Brushing Additive

Resene Brushing Additive
Resene Brushing Additive is specially formulated for addition to Resene waterborne enamel paints to reduce brush marking and produce a smoother finish on trim and joinery. Warm, dry conditions and hot surfaces result in too rapid drying of waterborne paints. This may lead to excessive foaming on application and generally poor application properties such as short wet edge times and impaired levelling. Resene Brushing Additive additions of 2%-5% will generally improve most application problems caused by too rapid drying. In more severe cases more Resene Brushing Additive is beneficial. Do not use more than 5% (200ml per 4 litres). Do not use with Resene Hot Weather Additive.

Typical uses: In Resene Lustacryl and Resene Enamacryl when brush applied onto trim and joinery.

Resene FX Crackle

Resene FX Crackle
crackle effects finish - interior
Creating unique broken, antique looking finishes is quick and easy with Resene FX Crackle. Distinctive crackle finishes can be created using a tinted acrylic basecoat (such as Resene Lumbersider), one coat of Resene FX Crackle and a final coat of an acrylic topcoat tinted to a contrasting colour to the basecoat. Resene FX Crackle will shrink causing the acrylic topcoat to crack revealing the basecoat colour. The Crackle effect will vary depending on the application method, enabling many different effects to be achieved with the same product, just by varying application technique and the basecoat and topcoat colour combinations. A thick coat of Resene FX Crackle will result in fewer larger, deeper cracks, while a thin coat will give smaller, shallower cracks. Crackle effect finishes are best used on uneven or rough walls, furniture, picture frames, woodwork and small feature areas. As with other effects products, agree a sample panel before the job starts and use this as the standard for the project.

Typical uses: Small areas where a crackle effect finish is required. Not recommended for large areas as it is difficult to get an even finish on a larger area.

Resene Hot Weather Additive

Resene Hot Weather Additive
Resene Hot Weather Additive is specially formulated to retard the dry of Resene waterborne paints. Warm, dry conditions and hot surfaces result in too rapid drying of waterborne paints. This may lead to excessive foaming on application and generally poor application properties such as short wet edge times and impaired levelling. Resene Hot Weather Additive additions of 2%-5% will generally improve most application problems caused by too rapid drying. In more severe cases more Resene Hot Weather Additive is beneficial. Do not use more than 10% (400ml per 4 litres). Do not use with Resene Brushing Additive.

Typical uses: In Resene waterborne paints to slow drying.

Resene Umbrella Additive

Resene Umbrella Additive
Resene Umbrella Additive is an additive for exterior waterborne coatings providing rapid protection from showers and light rain even before the coating has dried. Once applied, a coating containing Resene Umbrella Additive quickly starts to build a protective shell that then extends throughout the whole coating. Water is able to evaporate from the coating allowing it to dry but showers and light rain simply roll off leaving the still-drying coating firmly attached to the substrate. The Umbrella Effect will work in light showers only. Exterior painting should not be undertaken when medium or heavy rain is expected during the paint’s drying phase.
