          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** All products made with Resysta products must be stained and sealed in order to prevent unwanted staining. Use of non-approved water borne or oil based stain is not recommended and may violate the product warranty.
Resysta Color Concept provides unique opportunity to create stunning projects with the variety of over 30 colors. We pride ourselves to offer the only composite product on the market which can be refinished based on customers color preference.
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Water based stain for the color design of surfaces.
Resysta Stain is a carefully mixed composition of the water-diluted paint system with the high quality pigments. The unique color of the surfaces is achieved by the interaction between the shade of the Resysta substrate and the transparent color hue of the stain. The overall outcome is determined by the amount of pigments applied, Therefore some colors appear to be less transparent than the others. Moreover, variations of the shade between boards stained with the same color are also to be expected, which adds to the unique visual properties of the Resysta material.
          1.Primer: RBP Resysta Base Primer is an aqueous, colorless primer based on an acrylate dispersion
