DULUX AcraTex 958 AcraSand

Code: 194-51943

DULUX AcraTex 958 AcraSand is a flexible 100% acrylic, mid build sand texture, formulated to produce a fine granular appearance in two coats by conventional nap roller application with balanced properties of film thickness for crack bridging and minimal roller patterning for flat sand finish appearance. Specified in system with AcraShield weather-proofing barrier topcoat for optimum life cycle efficiency

Features

  • Water based
  • Easy to nap roller application
  • Versatile application
  • 7 year warranty when applied as a full Acra-Tex system
  • Low maintanance

Benefits

  • Easy, safe and economical clean-up.
  • Fine granular sand-paint look
  • Quick, efficient application with roller and brush.
  • Guaranteed long term exterior durability.
  • Weatherproof & stays cleaner top reducing maintenance when top coated with 955 Acrashield
