Recommended Textures for Exterior Applications

The Proceed textures that were tested for exterior use were: Rough Regular Texture, Rough Irregular Texture, Metallic Texture, Smooth Absorbent Texture, Smooth Translucent Texture and Smooth Transparent Glazing Gel.

Rough Regular Texture, Metallic Texture and Smooth Absorbent Texture can be used for exterior application but only with a suitable topcoat such as MSA Varnish.

We do not recommend using Rough Irregular Texture, Smooth Transparent Glazing Gel or Smooth Translucent Texture in exterior applications.


Recommended Slow-Drying Fluid Acrylic Colors for Exterior Applications

Although Slow-Drying Fluid Acrylics have an excellent Lightfastness rating and are very durable, the slow drying nature of the Slow-Dry Fluid Acrylics makes them very susceptible to humidity and wet weather. Exterior application can potentially damage or harm the paint film before it has had time to dry. Even dry films can remain sensitive to water for a period of time. If using the Slow-Drying Fluid Acrylics for an exterior application, apply to substrate indoors and allow to cure prior to exterior installation. Using a topcoat or varnish will minimize fading and yellowing of paint films and is strongly recommended. Do not use Hansa Yellow Light, Pyrrole Red Light, Quinacridone Magenta or Dioxazine Purple on cement or other substrates that have a high alkalinity as this may result in fading and loss of color. If you wish to apply the paint outdoors or prefer a greater range of colors, please refer to our GOLDEN Exterior Mural recommendations: http://www.goldenpaints.com/technicaldata/murals.php


Recommended Topcoats for Exterior Applications

We recommend GOLDEN MSA Varnish as a topcoat for Metallic Texture, Smooth Absorbent Texture and the recommended Slow-Drying Fluid Acrylics.

One test we conducted was to brush apply each of the Slow-Drying Fluid Acrylics onto a dried application of Smooth Absorbent Texture applied over Durock cement boards.

After one year of exterior exposure, the earth colors looked good. Regarding exterior applications, avoid using the Pigment Dispersions or Slow Drying Fluid acrylics in the following colors:

Quinacridone Magenta

Pyrrole Red Light

Hansa Yellow Light

Or, if these colors are necessary, a maintenance plan needs to be built into the project to reapply these colors. The frequency of reapplication will be determined by the location, ambient conditions and intensity of weather and sun exposure.


What to Avoid

Regarding exterior applications, avoid using the Pigment Dispersions or Slow Drying Fluid acrylics in the following colors:

Quinacridone Magenta

Pyrrole Red Light

Hansa Yellow Light

We do not recommend using Rough Irregular, Smooth Transparent Glazing Gel or Smooth Translucent Texture in exterior applications.
