Resene AquaShield

Resene AquaShield is a high mineral content, super-hydrophobic water repellent coating for application on most porous building materials to impart watershedding properties. It combines the water repellent properties of silicones with a special surface microstructure considerably reducing the contact area for water and dirt.

The result: dirt particles adhere loosely and are more easily carried away by raindrops, leaving a dry and attractive facade. Ideal for highly stressed weather-exposed facades. Made to the original Deutsches Patentschrift 1284007.

Resene decorative coatings are tinted using unique Resene non-VOC tinters to achieve the desired colour without added VOCs. Engineered Systems Coatings products are tinted using special Resene industrial tinters.

Resene can create a customised specification free for any project – contact them for more information. Order colour charts and drawdowns of Resene colours here
