DULUX AcraTex 951 Sponge Fine Render

Code: 194-85803

DULUX AcraTex 951 Sponge Fine Render delivers the charm of yester-year with the benefits of today’s technology and unlike limewash or cement based coatings, will not develop surface cracks. The cured coating has a mottled aged rendered patina and is similar to that of a limewash finish. Specified in multilayer applications, generally without topcoat, the natural finish will age gracefully. Can be overcoated with AcraShield weather-proofing barrier topcoat for optimum life cycle effeciency.

Features

  • 7 year warranty when used as a full Acra-Tex system
  • Pre-mixed ready for use
  • Fast processing & Long "wet edge"
  • Low maintanance

Benefits

  • Guaranteed long term exterior durability.
  • Has a weatherd look look & finsh in a range of colours
  • Quick, efficient, and levels uneven cement based surafces to an even finish
  • Weatherproof & stays cleaner longer reducing maintenance when top coated with 955 Acrashield

Performance Guide

Weatherability] Excellent resistance to cracking, flaking and chalking as when topcoated with DULUX AcraTex 955 AcraShield.
Heat Resistance] Up to 90C (dry). Meets Early Fire Hazard AS 1530.3. Ignitability 0, Spread 0, Heat 0, Smoke 1.
Water Resistance] Resists rain and condensation when top coated with Dulux Acra-Tex 955 Acrashield
Abrasion Resistance] Excellent resistance to abrasion.
Solvent Resistance] Resists achohols & aliphatic hydrocarbons. Sensitive to other strong solvents.
Acid Resistance] Slight softening with dilute acids. Best when topcoated with DULUX AcraTex 955 AcraShield
Alkaline Resistance] Slight softening with dilute alkalis. Best when topcoated with DULUX AcraTex 955 AcraShield
Salt Resistance] Resists salt spray when topcoated with DULUX AcraTex 955 AcraShield.
