We use 100% Acrylic resin in our formulation. What exactly does that mean? Acrylic resin is the second most expensive ingredient in paint, pigments are the first. Resin is what creates the best adhesion onto another surface. By using a 100% acrylic resin in our unique formulation, we are we providing a superior adhesion and durability. By not using less expensive fillers such as latex or vinyl, our paints are far less toxic than our competitors.  Our pigments are UV stable and are excellent for exterior applications without worrying about the sun fading them!

Not only do we provide a tip guide of how to use the products, we provide accurate true paint colours cards, gorgeous displays and a large array of images and posters that can be used to promote Fusion™ in store or at trade shows.Top 12 Questions you should be asking before choosing a paint brand! 34.
