ARISTOWALL® creates a strong durable finish through its advanced water-oil hybrid resin composition that provides superior scrub resistance. This means that even after repeated scrubbing, ARISTOWALL® finishes will still look good.
ARISTOWALL® uses a unique resin and thickening agent to create a product that provides excellent sag resistance and flow and leveling. This allows the paint to have good flow without excessive runs or sags to create a smooth, even finish.
ARISTOWALL® also possesses exceptional block resistance because of its ability to quickly develop a harder film that is smooth and slick.
ARISTOWALL® has better sag resistance compared to competitive products of the same gloss level. Excellent sag resistance means that the paint dries to a smooth, tight, uniform finish without the presence of heavy sag or drip marks.
Paints are applied to test charts with a special multi-notch applicator (a drawdown blade with a series of notches of successively higher clearance). The charts are immediately hung vertically with the drawdown stripes horizontal, similar to rungs on a ladder, with the thinnest stripe at the top. After drying in this position, the drawdown is examined and rated for sagging (top stripe=4 mils, bottom stripe=24 mils; each stripe from top to bottom represents 2 mil increase in film thickness).
ARISTOWALL® has better block resistance compared to competitive products of the same gloss level. Excellent block resistance helps prevent a door from sticking to the jamb or a window from sticking to its frame after they are painted. This is an important performance feature to look for in semi-gloss and gloss paints.
Paints are applied to black and white charts and allowed to dry for 24 hours. The charts are then cut and folded over each other. A weight is then placed on them to force the painted surfaces together. After 24 hours, the face-to-face charts are pulled apart to see if the dried paint stuck together.
ARISTOWALL® outperforms other brands in durability after repeated scrub cycles.
Paints are applied to black charts. After drying for seven days, the charts are placed in an abrasion testing machine and stopped at the indicated cycle. Complete film deterioration occurs when a full line of black background is exposed.
It is always recommended that ARISTOWALL® be used over properly prepared and primed surfaces. Below are our best primers for use on each type of surface.Drywall
