An acrylic resin is added to this latex paint to give it the best possible adhesion and durability qualities. This allows your paint to contract and expand along with temperature fluctuations, and weather to maintain a glossy finish.

This added resin creates a unique adhesive property in the paint, making it suitable for tough surfaces like metal and wood.
