There’s nothing like a poor homeowner who has so carefully chosen their Resene colour for their kitchen cabinetry, furniture, shutters or joinery, only to find when it is installed that the colour isn’t quite right. This starts them down the path of trying to figure out where the problem is… and that problem inevitably leads to finding out their cabinetry, furniture, shutter or joinery supplier hasn’t used the authentic Resene colour and product they asked for.
Every Resene colour is made with its own unique formulations using tinters exclusive to Resene. No matter what may be said, a match is never a true match, unless it uses the original materials. You can buy a burger at a fast-food location or a burger at an upmarket restaurant — both in theory have all the same ingredients: a burger bun, patty, lettuce and dressing, yet the end result is drastically different.
The same happens with colours, the nuances of tinters, the undertone of each base, the way each tinter interacts with each other, means that colours will show different undertones when exposed to different lighting. This is usually exacerbated when seen in combination with other colours, as the lighting changes and as the coating ages.
To make it easier for clients to get just the right colour, Resene has introduced a range of products especially designed for kitchen cabinetry, furniture and joinery. The new Resene AquaLAQ range includes a full system from sealer options to colour coat to clear coat finish options, including a complete waterborne system of sealer, colour coat and Environmental Choice approved clear coat. With a full range of authentic Resene colours available, there’s no need to settle for anything less.
