DULUX Duraflex™ 2 - PC655

Code: 823-LINE

Duraflex™ 2 is a fast drying, high gloss silicone alkyd enamel. This formula dries far more rapidly than conventional silicone enamels and traditional alkyd enamels. Duraflex™ 2 is ideal for situations where single-pack gloss enamels are required and great visual appeal and longer-term durability are important. Spray application achieves an exceptional quality high gloss finish. Where application is limited to brush and roller, Duraflex™ 2 is also suitable, with its good flow properties. The alkyd resin in Duraflex™ 2 is modified with silicone; this resin modification greatly enhances initial gloss and exhibits vastly superior retention of both gloss and colour compared with conventional enamels, making it a most cost-effective alternative.
