Code: 19485792-93

Approvals: AS4548.1, AS4548.2 : Long Life Coatings for Masonry

DULUX AcraTex AcraSatin ULTRA is a high build weather proofing, Texture- Membrane coating. Applied by Texture Roller, Airless spray, or conventional nap roller to produce various Textural profiles based on application & thickness

Features

  • 7 year warranty when applied as a full system
  • Light relief - High Film Build Texture
  • Variable Finish options
  • Pastel and Ultra Deep Bases
  • Weatherproofing
  • Flexability

Benefits

  • Guaranteed long term exterior durability.
  • Attractive low profile texture, Good susbstrate
  • Multi-use product, Texture through to Nap roller profile
  • Wide colour range, tintable for fast project turn-around
  • Protection for water ingress (performance increases relative to appplied DFT thickness)
  • Crackbridging (performance increases relative to applied DFT thickness)

Performance Guide

Weatherability] Excellent resistance to cracking, flaking and chalking.
Heat Resistance] Up to 90C (dry). Meets Early Fire Hazard AS 1530.3. Ignitability 0, Spread 0, Heat 0, Smoke 1.
Water Resistance] Low water transmission - Weatherproof barrier coating
Abrasion Resistance] Good resistance to abrasion.
Solvent Resistance] Resists alcohol and aliphatic hydrocarbons. Sensitive to other strong solvents.
Acid Resistance] Slightly softening with dilute acids.
Alkaline Resistance] New Cement / Concrete surfaces should be allowed to cure for 28 days to stabalise alkalinity
Salt Resistance] Resists salt spray.

Surface Preparation

Relative to Project Substrate and Specified Finish - refer to Project Specific Duspec Specification and AcraTex Substrate Guide
