Home /Products/ Water Reducible Paint


 Water Reducible Paint is a fine particle size, surfactant stabilised acrylic copolymer dispersion.

 Water Reducible Paint was developed as a binder for high performance, corrosion resistant metal Primers, high gloss topcoats and direct to metal finishies.


 Water Reducible Paint is Suitable for a range of metal coatings.

 Water Reducible Paint offers excellent adhesion to various metals and a high level of corrosion and humidity resistance.

 Water Reducible Paint is also recommended for the formulation of high gloss topcoats with excellent UV and chemical resistance.

 Water Reducible Paint requires the use of coalescing solvents such as Butyl Diglycol, Butyl Glycol or Dowanol DPM to achieve good low temperature film formation and quick drying properties.

 Thickeners such as Natrosol Plus 330 and HEUR types such as Collacral PU85 give good results with SP 6026.
