TECHNICAL FEATURES

ITC DECOR is a plastic wall coating, with fibers and acrylic resins in water dispersion, for indoors and outdoors. The material also contains marble compounds to assure the scratchy-effect.

The synthetic fibers assure a better resistance during bending. The product is resistant to weather conditions, dust and sun.

The product sticks very well on all types of mortar, including traditional ones, as well as on old, adherent paint.

Besides protection, it provides the support with an aesthetical finishing.

ITC DECOR is suitable for indoor applications on gypsum surfaces, as well as on old, well adherent and dust clean paints. On very old paints, the absorbing status of the surface and the potential use of the liner must be carefully considered.
