And relaunches with a bold new look

After rigorous trials conducted under extreme conditions, including benchmarking against competitors, Plascon can proudly announce that Plascon Polvin has been awarded Flagship Status. It joins other premium Plascon brands like Micatex, Double Velvet, Cashmere and Velvago in a recognition of unrivalled quality. With sleek new packaging featuring the updated Kansai Plascon brand identity, Plascon Polvin has been re-launched as a brand that performs at world-class standards.

Its new status and bold look notwithstanding, Plascon Polvin is actually the same winning acrylic emulsion formula for both interior and exterior use that customers have known and trusted for almost seven decades. With the best quality and purest ingredients, the Plascon Polvin formula has unrivalled durability, great hiding and impeccable whiteness. Suitable for application to primed new cement, plaster, concrete, porous brickwork, and various types of building boards, Plascon Polvin has a smooth matt finish, low odour, outstanding scrubability, and best-in-class washability.

As part of its rigorous process to ensure that the brand was worthy of Flagship status, Plascon tested Polvin for scrubability, washability and whiteness. When it comes to scrubability, it more than lived up to its reputation for durability. In a scrub resistance test, Plascon Polvin performed twice as well as a leading competitor. Another test was undertaken to establish washability, and Plascon Polvin kept more of its coating thickness than the leading competitor, meaning it will last longer. Plascon Polvin also shined in the whiteness and hiding categories, offering superior hiding and a whiter finish than a leading competitor. This brilliant white finish is thanks to the premium grade titanium dioxide used in the Plascon Polvin formula.

It is because of these superior qualities that Plascon proudly offers a 10-year guarantee on all Plascon Polvin products. While Polvin comes in a standard white (EPL 30), it can also be tinted into your choice of over 1 000 colours!

When it comes to colour choice, Plascon has also catered for members of the construction, architecture and interior design trades. To ensure that professionals can achieve their ideal aesthetic, Plascon Polvin is available in a range of neutral tones such as Ponte Plaster (EPL 501), Malucca (EL 175), Carlton Grey (EPL 502), Hanging Greige (EPL 504) and Pale Cream (EPL 272).

The Plascon commitment to quality also comes with a dedicated paint advisory service, should you ever require assistance.
