AquaShield water repellent coating

Resene AquaShield is a high mineral content, super hydrophobic, water repellent coating with excellent coverage. It combines the water repellent properties of silicones with a special surface micro-structure, which considerably reduces the contact area for water and dirt. The result – dirt particles adhere lightly and are more easily carried away by rain.

Although it has excellent weather resistance, as with most waterborne finishes it allows the building to 'breathe' so that water vapours from inside are able to pass through the paint film to the exterior.

Resene AquaShield is an attractive flat mineral effect finish, a classic aged look, particularly suited to heritage, art deco, Sante Fe and Mediterranean style homes and buildings. It’s available in a wide range of Resene colours, including the heat reflective Resene CoolColour technology. Colours formulated with Resene CoolColour technology reflect more of the sun’s energy than a standard colour keeping the paint, surface and building cooler.

Porous substrates should be pre-treated with Resene Aquapel to maximise water repellency and breathability. Resene AquaShield can be used in conjunction with other primers and sealers, but water repellency and breathability will be impaired.

When used commercially it is best applied to heritage buildings that suit the soft, slightly textured finish. Complement with Resene Lumbersider or Resene Sonyx 101 for foundations or other high wear areas.
