What Is 2pac?
What is a 2pac finish?
2Pac is short for a two pack finish, which relates to two liquids mixed to create a more durable finish, which allows a 7-year wear and durability warranty to be given.
- The coloured polyurethane resin gives the specific colour and the gloss level for your project.
- Polyisocyanate resin: This is the hardener in the product which gives the drying capabilities, non-yellowing properties and the durability of the coating.
The combination of these two ‘packs’ causes the paint to harden. This results in a thicker, more durable surface than other paints and finishes as very little of this product evaporates due to the smaller amount of solvent in the mixture. Furthermore, it reduces the VOCs – the Volatile Organic Compounds.
2Pac is most commonly found as a finish on cabinets in areas which need to be durable.
- Kitchen cupboards
- Bathroom cupboards
- Other cabinets in lounge rooms, libraries and studies
2Pac can be difficult to apply. As such, such work needs to be done by a professional. 2Pac can cost more than other alternatives but is certainly worth the additional expense to get such a superior product.
It should be noted that 2Pac:
- Takes a specific time to dry, and therefore needs to be stored appropriately
- Needs to be kept in a controlled environment
- Needs to be exposed to heat to speed up drying
- Needs to be applied by a professional wearing specialist equipment
