In layman’s terms our exterior paint is based upon the leading resin in the world called Pliolite. This special resin has a unique ability to allow moisture from inside the home to pass through it whilst stopping water from entering the paint film on the outside. In this respect it mimics human skin and is also very flexible so cannot crack or split under thermal expansion or contraction.
