GF's New Durable Dead Flat Top Coats Are Now Available

Posted by roy 06/12/2022 4 Comment(s)



Bruach Finishing Supplies, the importers and distributors of General Finishes to the UK and Europe are delighted that due to brand new patented polymer technology, GF has created a Matte sheen without waxes and matting agents that decrease durability.
 

Until now, Matte sheens always came with a compromise in durability. Consumers have been asking for an ultra-flat topcoat that is as durable as our other sheens, and General Finishes is finally able to deliver High Performance Top Coat in Dead Flat and Enduro Clear Poly in Dead Flat.
 

Defining Durability
All of our GF's testing shows High Performance Dead Flat is as durable as High Performance Satin, which is a drastic improvement over Flat Out Flat topcoat.
 

Flat: (degree sheen)
Flat Out Flat: <5
High Performance Dead Flat: <5
 

Water Resistance: (max 5)
Flat Out Flat: 2
High Performance, Dead Flat: 4
 

Chemical Resistance: (0-100)
Flat Out Flat: 82
High Performance, Dead Flat: 92
 

Scratch Resistance and Marring:
Scratch Resistance is strong with both products.
Marring is better than Flat Out Flat and comparable to the Satin and Flat.
 

High Performance vs. Clear Poly
The main differentiator between these products is that Clear Poly is a spray-only product and High Performance can be applied with a brush or sprayed. Clear Poly is popular among high-production contractors but both products produce professional results.
 

Is Dead Flat Clear Poly tintable?
Yes! Clear Poly in Dead Flat can be tinted in the same way as other sheens. The colour may be softer, but it can be done.
 

How do you maintain the clarity of a Dead Flat sheen over dark colours?
Applying 2 coats of Sanding Sealer, Gloss or Semi-Gloss before adding a final layer of Dead Flat will create more "depth" over a dark stain but is not necessary. Clarity is not affected in the High Performance or Clear Poly Dead Flat topcoats.
 

Upgraded Features

  • Patented self-matting polyurethane
  • Uses renewable resources, with no Prop 65 chemicals
  • Meets KCMA standards
  • VOC compliant nationwide

Warning: Do Not Mix!
Topcoat with a Dead Flat sheen CAN NOT be mixed with another sheen because a completely different polymer is used and the combined formulas will not perform well as one.
 

High Performance Dead Flat     Enduro Clear Poly Dead Flat

GF's chemist travels around the world and is sent new ingredients when they are discovered on a regular basis. GF are one of the rare companies capable of incorporating new innovations and ingredients into their products, no expense spared, because of their dedication to staying on the leading edge and providing the highest quality product on the market.

ProNova Partners would like to collaborate with you on the sale of your business ASAP. Buyer demand is sky-high for our offerings - we closed many of the new engagements we were hired for nationwide in 2022 despite the pandemic and the initial onset of a recession. Valuations are ridiculous {STILL}, our closing timeframes are short, and the good times I'm afraid won't last forever. Interest rates will rise eventually, which will make it increasingly harder for Buyers to leverage up & pay 4-9x (PLUS) NET income on the best opportunities, plus there lies the possiblity of long term capital gains taxes on the sale of your business nearly doubling in the future possibly....The time is now! If you're interested in selling or just checking in on the valuation of your enterprise, please feel free to reach out to me directly to book an appointment {CONFIDENTIALLY} to explore further: https://www.calendly.com/pronova On our end - we had 25 closings in 2022, with a dozen more (ranging from $230k to $72MM all-cash) closings scheduled in the next few months and we're running low on salable inventory again. M&A marches onward despite these uncertain times!!

I'd ideally like to take some time to begin a discussion on the sale of your Company & we can commence 'packaging' this opportunity together so we can hopefully go to market and close by year-end. If you disagree, for whatever reason, hopefully just give me a follow up date that you think makes sense and I can circle back with you at that time. But why ProNova Partners? - We have plenty of cash buyers that are active & decisive acquirers for good inventory. - We possess the network and the experiences to orchestrate virtually any transaction from initial consultation to the close of escrow in a timely manner. - We pay for upgraded advertising which in turn ensures maximum exposure to your business far beyond our company database of 32,236+ buyers looking for interesting targets. - We specialize in highly-sensitive and confidential sales and recognize its importance, therefore all buyers have an NDA on file with us. - We work together with our highly skilled team to produce top-tier marketing materials and pitch books that impel buyers to write offers. - We are experts in valuation - by applying the correct valuation strategy to your firm, we can therefore negotiate the highest possible price for your business. - We understand the importance of time to close, and considering all of the above we also have an average 90 days to close for our buyers / sellers. - We are a success fee firm, unless we close the transaction for you, there is no charge to you. If you're interested in joining me on a jouney to increase the value of your business, take the value builder score questionnaire and in 12-24 months we'll sell your business for maximum value, no matter the outcome of tax legislation the improvements to your business will not matter in comparison to the higher sales price we'll achieve together: https://www.pronovapartners.com/services/ What's your magic #? What's your exit plan strategy? What are you waiting for?
