Sheen to Suit

Sheen to Suit
February 8, 2013

The solventborne enamel range at Resene has traditionally been focused on gloss and semi-gloss finishes. With the popularity of low sheen finishes inside, the solventborne enamels have tended to be limited to trim and joinery work as even the semi-gloss finish has been too shiny for many wall applications and customers.

New Resene Room Velvet is a low sheen solventborne enamel that dries to a beautiful, even, silky low sheen finish.  It’s based on a tough flexible alkyd resin for durability in wear and tear areas.

Resene Room Velvet is designed for walls and ceilings, architraves and skirting boards especially in wet areas, such as bathrooms, kitchens and laundries.

Manufactured with less than 1% aromatic hydrocarbon content, the lower odour formulation is easy to apply and dries without the unwanted and strong solvent odours associated with traditional solventborne products.  And to help keep the product lower odour, Resene is launching Resene Thinner No.2 lower odour for thinning and clean up.

Resene Room Velvet is available in white and a huge range of colours off white from Resene ColorShops and Resellers.
