This high opacity Flame Retardant vinyl emulsion paint was originally formulated in the 1950’s and has been updated over the years. The dead flat matt formulation enhances the depth of natural pigment colours making for an easier keying process.
Scenic Artists, Master Painters, Architects, Interior Designers and absolute pigment purists love the chalky appearance of this product manufactured by master paint makers in our factory in London.
Mylands Emulsion Paint may be applied by brush or roller. Mylands traditional emulsion can also be overcoated with Mylands Gloss and Matt F.R. (flame retardant) glazes which can enhance and protect the emulsion. The glazes can also be mixed in with the emulsions to change the sheen of the paint i.e creating an eggshell effect which gives extra strength.
