A major external refurbishment of one of the biggest bakery buildings in Sweden has been undertaken, using a revolutionary wall coating manufactured by Liquid Plastics. Monolastex RE - a waterborne acrylic, highbuild UV-cured coating - was specified for application to more than 6,000m 2of external wall surfaces at Schulstad Bakery in Stockholm. Monolastex RE was applied to the external walls by roller and brush to provide a coated finish able to accommodate movement and cracking. It is actually cured by exposure to the UV radiation in sunlight, and develops a skin surface which is relatively harder than the bulk of the coating beneath. Thus it has a hard-wearing surface, with an underlying coating that is comparatively mobile and able to tolerate pronounced movement without cracking or splitting.
