DULUX AcraTex 952 Spray On 2mm

Code: 194-20819

Approvals: APAS-0117/4, APAS-0118/4 (system approval)

DULUX AcraTex 952 2mm is a flexible 100% acrylic, stipple sand finish Texture Coating designed for broad wall application typically for Commercial Applications producing a granular mineral appearance. The “2nd pass” stipple application delivers a higher profile texture for greater substrate hiding power. Specified in system with AcraShield weather-proofing barrier topcoat for optimum life cycle efficiency

Features

  • 7 year warranty when used as a full Acra-Tex system
  • 100% water-based acrylic
  • Fast Spray applicatioinn - high iscosity
  • Low maintanance

Benefits

  • Guaranteed long term exterior durability.
  • Easy, safe and economical clean-up.
  • Ideal for spray application for uniform finish.
  • Weatherproof & stays cleaner longer reducing maintenance when top coated with 955 Acrashield

Typical properties and application data

Application Guide Dulux AcraTex Spray-On 2mm is applied in two passes using a DULUX AcraTex hopper gun. Thin slightly with water to aid application of the first pass, to form a low profile motley base completely covering the substrate. Apply the second pass unthinned at 60% cover to achieve the required finish. GUn set up uses a 4mm to 6mm fluid nozzle set at 50-60 psi for the first pass and 30-40 psi for the second pass. For full details refer to individual Duspec Product and AcraTex Applicational Data Sheets. For full details refer to individual Duspec Product and AcraTex Applicational Data Sheets.
