Water-based Decorative Anti-Carbonation Coating with a Metallic Finish
Monodex Metallic is a high performance, elastomeric, water-based coating which is the world’s first metallic anti-carbonation coating. It is designed to be applied as a lustrous feature finish over an existing Monodex Smooth base coat. Monodex Metallic can be used for both external and internal applications to provide a unique, sparkling architectural statement.
- Metallic particles ensure a sparkling, reflective finish, making it ideal for architectural new build or refurbishment projects
- Monodex Smooth ensures a highly protective base coat, whilst a Monodex Metallic top coat ensures a lustrous, metallic finish
- High diffusion resistance to carbon dioxide, offering complete protection from the effects of carbonation
- Equally suited for both external and internal applications
- Low hazard, water based product with no flash point. Equipment easily cleaned with water
- Fast drying, allowing two coat applications on the same day and year round use
- Low water vapour diffusion resistance allows damp substrates to breathe and dry out without blistering
- Provides protection against water ingress, yet allows damp substrates to breathe
- Rapid application by brush, roller or airless spray
- Monodex Metallic can be applied using Graco Pumps (see the Airless Spraying of Decorative Protective Coatings & Membranes Graco Pumps)
- A range of special metallic colours can be created.

- No blistering, cracking or flaking after 2,500 hours QUV-B weathering in accordance with EN 1062-11
- Water vapour transmission 50g/m²/day in accordance with BS EN ISO 7783-2.
