Advantages of an Acrylic Stucco Finish
If you have the opportunity to have an acrylic stucco as opposed to a stucco without acrylic, take the acrylic stucco because there are several advantages. In today’s blog, we are going to discuss the several advantages of using acrylic in stucco.
Acrylic is polymethyl methacrylate, also known as PMMA. It is a type of engineering plastic that is extremely strong, water resistant, and bonds incredibly well. The advantage of adding it to stucco is that is strengthens the stucco.
By including acrylic in stucco, the stucco is more water resistant, more mold resistant, stronger, less likely to crack or chip, and it will last longer. Acrylic is an outstanding addition to many building materials, and especially to stucco.
Even if acrylic is included in the stucco recipe, you can still have a wide range of colors. Acrylic is also elastic, so it will move with the microscopic movements of the building. Because of this elasticity, the stucco will have a longer life and need fewer repairs.
We highly recommend the addition of acrylic to stucco. Stucco, by itself, is an excellent product that has been used for thousands of years, but the addition of acrylic makes it even better.
