  • The tough, flexible and adherent SQ 26 Basecoat can be applied over all suitably primed substrates. This is followed (after the basecoat has dried) by a full coat of the unique HMG SQ 26 crackle coat.
  • During drying, a shrinkage effect on the specially formulated crackle coat leads to a unique decorative "Crackle finish" which is available in range of colours.
  • Finally a clear over-lacquer is used to seal and preserve the unique "crackle" decorative effect.
