line has excellent wet/dry adhesion to different substrates
including alkyds, ceramics and aluminum.

time, it exhibits great toughness and durability. This product
also provides varied options in paint formulation across a range
of sheens from flat to semi-gloss.
Avicor 390, a vinyl acrylic emulsion, another product from the

excellent stain resistance.
