Metallic Wall Texture
Moiré and Suede is an interior acrylic based plaster used for decorative finishes over smoothly prepared surfaces. They are available in gold and pearlescent tintable bases that are ready to use. A typical installation is as a decorative reflective texture showing a background of gold or pearl and resembling silk or suede in metallic or non metallic. After proper surface preparation, 1 or 2 thin coats will create the finish. These products are very workable and easily applied. Application is done with a combination of wall texture tools such as brushes, rollers and stainless-steel finishing trowels and spatulas. This allows for multiple layering, which will create more surface movement.
PROTEK manufacturers Acrylic and soy-based hybrid Metallic paints that can produce seamless Metallic finishes on different surfaces. We recommend different Metallic Coating products for different types of surfaces and coverage areas.
- If the surface is smooth and flat, Metaltech can be rolled, even over large areas, without leaving roller marks. Metaltech is very durable and can be applied on exterior surfaces.
- Ubran Metal can be rolled or brushed on textured walls, furniture, cabinetry, trim, and doors. It was not formulated to be rolled over large, flat surfaces.
It is ideal for coating walls; room features and mouldings in a wide range of metallic colors. Protek invented the technology that allows water and aluminium or bronzing powder to co-exist in a water-based solution with long term stability. The beauty of metal has rarely been simulated to the degree Metaltech achieves using conventional application methods.
Urban Paint Metal also offers a metallic paint made with a hybrid mix using water and plant oil. This combination allows for a low odor application and uses water to clean up the tools and equipment. The true benefit of this hybrid formula is that it boosts the brilliance of the metallic flakes and is also very durable. This makes this line available for furniture, cabinet, trim, doors, and textured wall applications. It has amazing self-leveling properties and will appear as though it was sprayed when applied with a roller and brush.
