Den Braven’s revolutionary Paintable Wet on Wet
In September South African Builder attended a workshop at Den Braven’s head office in Randburg to get hands-on with their newly launched Wet on Wet sealant.
A first in South Africa, this unique sealant is designed to enable over painting immediately after application, while still wet, with water based and alkyd paints – thus saving significant time and allowing contractors to “seal, paint and go” without having to wait for the sealant to dry.
Wet on Wet is a high quality emulsion based sealant which does not discolour or cause the paint to crack when painting soon after applying. Cracking often occurs when painting immediately over standard acrylic paintable sealants. Wet on Wet remains flexible after curing.
Wet on Wet’s compatibility with paint is ensured by Den Braven’s proven UCA* Technology (*Unique Compatibility Additives.) It was developed by selecting specialised additives and raw materials through dedicated research and development with paint manufacturers and put through stringent technical testing at Den Braven’s Centre of Excellence in Holland.
