Resene Acrylic Undercoat

Resene Acrylic Undercoat is an easy brushing, quick, hard drying undercoat with exceptional flow and sanding characteristics. While specifically designed for maximum benefit under acrylic enamels, such as Resene Enamacryl (see Data Sheet D309) and Resene Lustacryl (see Data Sheet D310), Resene Acrylic Undercoat tinted to the correct colour is ideal for use under a wide range of waterborne and solventborne topcoats to improve the hiding of the paint system.

Key Features

  • Available in colours suitable for use under Resene Total Colour System colours to facilitate perfect hiding and finish
  • Excellent flow and sanding properties
  • Outstanding durability maintaining flexibility for the life of the system
  • Designed with a low sheen that allows exceptional enamel hold-out
  • Suitable for overcoating with most finishing systems
  • An Environmental Choice approved product
