New duo gets tough on cracks

Fixing hairline cracks is painstaking and time-consuming – a nightmare for contractors who have multi-storey buildings to paint. All textured paints claim to cover hairline cracks.

But do they and what are hairline cracks?
These are surface cracks not wider or thicker than 0,08mm, and they need to be treated when they appear to protect the finish of exterior walls and it seems that not all exterior paints are created equal.

The trusted name in exterior paint says they have revolutionised the exterior paint market with a new product specifically formulated to tackle hairline cracks. This means no more worrying about retarding water seepage through hairline cracks and endless maintenance.

The well-known duo of mica for stretch and marble for strength has made Plascon Micatex South Africa’s favourite exterior paint choice for decades. Now there’s a new duo that seems even tougher – Plascon Micatex with Polycell, formulated with Polycell Fine Crack Filler so that you can be assured that exterior walls are protected for twelve years.

Looks fresh and clean for longer
Plascon Micatex with Polycell derives its weather-tough protection trademark from the unique combination of special grades of mica and marble. Tests have shown that the paint film of Plascon Micatex is twice as thick as conventional paints and 23% tougher than a leading competitor. It offers the strength and durability needed to protect exterior walls from both the harsh South African weather conditions and the wear-and-tear of everyday living.

In addition to keeping exterior walls clean and looking newer for longer, Plascon Micatex with Polycell has incredibly low dirt pick-up. This is ensuring that dirt and dust wash off easily, so your exterior walls always look freshly painted and clean.

For ultimate protection, strength, toughness and peace of mind, Plascon Micatex with Polycell will continue to be South Africa’s trusted and specified exterior paint for many more years to come. It is available in stores now, in new-look packaging, and is supported by a fully integrated consumer communication campaign.
