Acrylic Venetian Plaster is a premium plaster offering a full custom colour range. This modern look can be found in commercial and residential indoor living spaces. Usually, it is waxed and polished to bring out the beauty of overlapping thin layers.
Polished plaster is an obvious lead in, it can create intense colours without fear of premature aging and fading. Wax acts as a sealer for washability, increasing its wearability over time.
Utilized in commercial and residential applications, Acrylic Venetian Plaster most often has a final wax finish for beauty and cleaning over time. This modern plaster product is a high-quality seamless solution that can be reproduced by many applicators to be much easier than traditional Lime Plaster.
Protek Acrylic Venetian Plaster was the first acrylic plaster to be developed in North America. Since inception in 1990’s, Protek Acrylic Venetian Plaster now covers millions of square feet in restaurants, hotels, airports and residences throughout the world.
The primary reason Acrylic Plasters were created is due to northern climates having 4 seasons, freezing temperatures are common. This is an inherent defect with traditional decorative Lime Plaster products, because once frozen they break down and cannot come back.
Faced with what appeared to be an insurmountable situation, with the assistance of our extensive history of technical resources, Protek got to work. One element was a zero VOC additive that acts as antifreeze, so water does not separate from other elements in the formulation and Acrylic Plaster products remain stable after it unfreezes.
Back in the days, a line ‘limited only by your imagination’ was used. This context is still true today as new generations take Acrylic Venetian Plaster into new realms. Think of it as a building element, which can be washed back or embellished to look like leather and textured fabrics wall finishes. Being able to ship 12 months of the year anywhere in the world without fear of losing integrity in the materials makes good business sense to us.
