Water-in-water multicolor paint (MCP) is a two-phase system of multi-colored droplets dispersed in a continuous latex phase. When sprayed onto a surface, the MCP can imitate natural stone materials such as granite or marble. The texture of the surface can be modified by including sand into the MCP, or by modifying the hardness of the color droplets. Compared with stone paint, MCP greatly reduces the environmental impact from the sourcing of the naturally occurring colored sand. Multi-colored paints have high weather resistance and are economical thanks to their low weight
Thanks to the multifunctional chemistry of the Bermocoll, a limited number of products alone or in combination is able to give the desired properties to a variety of MCP systems.
Bermocoll EBM 3000, as a standalone product or in combination with Bermocoll EHM 500, will suit a broad range of multicolor paint applications, complimented by Bermocoll EBM 8000 as a cost-efficient alternative and Bermocoll EBS 481 FQ as a standard grade.
With Bermocoll as the cellulose ether thickener, there is no need for additional thickener in the MCP base paint.
