With the popularity of low-sheen finishes inside, the solventborne enamels have tended to be limited to trim and joinery work, as even the semi-gloss finish has been too shiny for many wall applications.
New Resene Room Velvet is a low-sheen solventborne enamel that dries to a beautiful, even, silky low-sheen finish. It’s based on a tough flexible alkyd resin for durability in wear and tear areas. Resene Room Velvet is designed for walls and ceilings, architraves and skirting boards especially in wet areas, such as bathrooms, kitchens and laundries.
Manufactured with less than 1 per cent aromatic hydrocarbon content, the lower odour formulation is easy to apply and dries without the unwanted strong solvent odours associated with traditional solventborne products. And to help keep the product lower odour, Resene is launching Resene Thinner No.2 lower odour for thinning and clean up.
Resene Room Velvet will be available in white and a huge range of colours from Resene ColorShops and Resellers from late 2012.
