Textures, weathertight and specialist coatings product range

The Resene range of textures and specialist effects includes a myriad of finishes from mineral effects to metallics, low build to high build depending on the look you want to create on your project.

Different application methods will give a wide variety of other finishes limited only by your imagination, so be sure to sight and approve a sample panel for the contractor to use as a reference for the complete project. These textured and special effects are generally suitable for both exterior and interior application, allowing you to continue with the same finish inside. Integrally coloured specialist and textured coatings remain true to colour even when damaged and reduce the need for additional coloured topcoats, saving time and money.

Resene manufactures an extensive range of paints, stains and coatings suitable for a myriad of residential, commercial and industrial applications.

Resene Paint Aquapel

Resene Aquapel
water repellent clear finish - exterior - waterborne
Environmental Choice approved

Resene Aquapel is a clear water repellent treatment formulated to help control efflorescence and give a long-term water-beading effect to deter water penetration. It may be used on its own or as a primer under waterborne coatings, especially Resene AquaShield mineral effect.

The product is ideal as a clear finish over concrete to maintain the natural appearance while still providing it with some protection against the elements and slowing down the growth of mould, lichen and the like as these organisms will find it more difficult to grow on the coated surface than on an uncoated one.

Typical uses: Most porous building materials. May be used in multiple coats to keep concrete in its natural state looking good for longer by minimising the opportunity for moss, mould and lichen growths, brick, concrete block, fibrous cement, poured concrete, tilt slab, timber.

Resene AquaShield

Resene AquaShield
mineral effect flat finish coating - exterior - waterborne
Resene AquaShield is a high mineral content, super hydrophobic, water repellent coating with excellent coverage for application on porous building materials to impart watershedding properties. It combines the water repellent properties of silicones with a special surface micro-structure, which considerably reduces the contact area for water and dirt. The result: dirt particles adhere lightly and are more easily carried away by rain. Ideal for highly stressed weather-exposed facades. Made to the original Deutsches Patentschrift 1284007.

Although it has excellent weather resistance, as with most waterborne finishes it allows the building to 'breathe' so that water vapours from inside are able to pass through the paint film to the exterior.

Resene AquaShield is an attractive flat mineral effect finish, a classic aged look, particularly suited to heritage, art deco, Sante Fe and Mediterranean style homes and buildings.

When used commercially it is best applied to heritage buildings that suit the soft, slightly textured finish. Use Resene Lumbersider or Resene Sonyx 101 for foundations or other high wear areas.

Porous substrates should be pre-treated with Resene Aquapel to maximise water repellency and breathability properties. Resene AquaShield can be used in conjunction with other primers and sealers, but water repellency and breathability properties will be impaired.

Typical uses: Brick, concrete block, fibrous cement, natural stone, poured concrete, stucco, tilt slab.

Resene AquaShield CoolColour

Resene AquaShield CoolColour
mineral effect flat finish coating - exterior - waterborne
Resene AquaShield is a high mineral content super-hydrophobic, water repellent coating for application on most porous building materials to impart watershedding properties. Combines the water repellent properties of silicones with a special surface microstructure considerably reducing the contact area for water and dirt. The result: dirt particles adhere loosely and are more easily carried away by raindrops, leaving a dry and attractive facade. Ideal for highly stressed weather-exposed facades. Made to the original Deutsches Patentschrift 1284007. Resene CoolColour technology performs optimally on dark colours that are the most prone to heat build-up.

Typical uses: Brick, concrete block, fibrous cement, natural stone, poured concrete, stucco, tilt slab.

Resene Enamacryl Metallic

Resene FX Metallic (was known as Resene Enamacryl Metallic)
waterborne metallic effect paint - exterior/interior - waterborne
Environmental Choice approved

If a finish a little out of the ordinary is called for, Resene FX Metallic and special effects are the ideal solution to add an extra dimension to a wide range of areas from exterior concrete and steelwork through to interior feature walls, doors, joinery and furniture. Resene has two metallic finishes:

Resene FX Metallic is a waterborne metallic finish recommended for use over prepared concrete and plaster. Resene FX Metallic is the preferred product for interior work because of its Environmental Choice approval and low VOCs.

Resene Imperite I.F. 503 is a spray applied high performance coating. It is more durable than Resene FX Metallic in exterior situations and is preferred especially over new steelwork. Slight variations in colour may occur between Resene FX Metallic and Resene Imperite I.F. 503 due to their inherently different film forming properties. The metallics range is best applied by spray for a monolithic finish but may be brushed using a crows foot technique or rolled with good trade practice.

Typical uses: Architraves, bathrooms, furniture, kitchens, laundries, plywood, skirtings, timber doors, wallboards, window frames.

Resene X-300E is a thixotropic weathertight membrane

Swatch

Resene X-300E
high build elastomeric membrane coating - exterior/interior - waterborne
Environmental Choice approved

Resene X-300E is a thixotropic weathertight membrane designed for thick application over cracked concrete surfaces. Thixotropic means it is a coating material that, while free-flowing and easy to manipulate under the brush, sets to a gel within a short time when it is allowed to remain at rest. It is made using acrylic elastomers that have excellent 'memory' of their original shape when distorted, which gives the product incredible movement and crack bridging capabilities, enabling it to bridge gaps up to half the thickness of the paint film. Resene X-300E performs well over badly cracked and deteriorating substrates and is therefore recommended over propagating cracks - that is, when cracks are getting worse and/or new ones are appearing. This product will resolve many less than perfect substrates, but is not recommended on very poor substrates. It is able to be applied at very high thicknesses without sagging or film cracking.

Resene X-300E has a semi-gloss finish but like all elastomeric coatings is more prone to dirt pickup than standard coatings. This may be easily overcome with a final coat of a standard waterborne topcoat such as Resene Lumbersider or Resene X-200 weathertight membrane.

Typical uses: Concrete road bridges, high rise concrete buildings, all other cementitious surfaces.
