Elastacote High Gloss Membrane is a water based 100% acrylic coating produced by Globalcote which we recommend to use on exterior rendered walls. As a local supplier, we understand just how varied the weather can be in Australia, which is why the technology used in the manufacturing of Elastacote makes is adaptable in extreme heat and cold. The Elastacote membrane paint is durable enough to resist the worst of our summer storms and can withheld the cold snaps in the southern states and New Zealand.
The durable colourfast coating system significantly reduces dirt accumulation, pollution and chemical attack.
