FX Elastomeric Membrane
FX Elastomeric Membrane is a hard-wearing and washable paint, especially manufactured for exterior durability.
Its flexibility helps to address hairline cracks due to minor structural movement. It is suitable for substrates such as concrete walls and ceilings, cement render or fibre cement sheets.
