Protect Substrates with Resene's X Series Weathertight Membranes

Resene X-200 is a waterborne weathertight membrane designed for use on concrete, blockwork, fibre cement sheeting and solid plaster where weathertightness is required. It can be used on its own or under Resene textures such as Resene Resitex or Resene Sandtex, and brushed into small cracks (less than 1mm) to prevent moisture entering the damaged substrate.

Resene X-200 has a lightly textured low sheen finish, in keeping with current trends for lower gloss finishes. It is easily applied and has excellent durability. Available in a wide range of colours, off white and pastel tones are available for tinting in store.

Resene X-400 is a semi-gloss waterborne weathertight membrane, with superior small void and crack filling properties, designed for thick application over concrete, blockwork, fibre cement sheeting, solid plaster and cracked substrates where weathertightness is required. It may be applied at very high thicknesses without sagging or film cracking. With Resene X-400, users get the dual benefits of texture and weathertightness in one product, combined with better washability and reduced dirt pickup compared to elastomeric coatings. Brushed into small cracks it will prevent moisture entering the damaged substrate. Resene X-400 is available in white and pastel tone colours.

Resene X-300E is a thixotropic weathertight membrane designed for thick application over cracked concrete surfaces. Thixotropic means it is a coating material that, while free-flowing and easy to manipulate under the brush, sets to a gel within a short time when it is allowed to remain at rest. It is made using acrylic elastomers that have excellent 'memory' of their original shape when distorted, which gives the product incredible movement and crack bridging capabilities, enabling it to bridge gaps up to half the thickness of the paint film.

It is used on very similar substrates to Resene X-400, however Resene X-300E is the only product that performs well over badly cracked and deteriorating substrates and is therefore recommended over propagating cracks — that is, when cracks are getting worse and/or new ones are appearing. It is able to be applied at very high thicknesses without sagging or film cracking and will resolve many less than perfect substrates.
