Most textured coats contain sand, silicate, mica or other coarse particles.  These are used to assist in the textured appearance and to bridge cracks.  The disadvantage is that these coatings have a high degree of dirt retention.

  • Super Fibretex is specially formulated with cellulose fibres to give a slight textured appearance and bridge hairline cracks without being too rough.  This results in a coating that has low dirt retention, giving a much longer coating life.
  • Super Fibretex should be used where outstanding durability and waterproofing properties are required.
