PRODUCT RANGE

 

Axolotl Paints bring you five products that can be used on their own or together, to create a uniquely beautiful design with a professional finish.

CHROMA & METTA

Axolotl Chroma is a high quality acrylic paint designed for internal and external applications. The premium quality base has been formulated to achieve stronger opacity, fuller colours and better paintability than conventional paints. Chroma is available in a variety of bases including: ceiling flat, flat, low sheen, satin & gloss.

Axolotl Metta is a unique flat textured paint with a streak free appearance and subtle colour variation that is easy to apply. The depth and flatness of colour achieved will help to conceal variations in the painted surface and makes Metta paint ideal for facades. Metta is a durable flat base and can be over coated with our clear acrylic sealer for added serviceability. Extra texture can be achieved with the addition of Axolotl Grain, a fine grade sand designed to be mixed in to the Metta base at time of painting. 

Both Chroma and Metta are low VOC’s and water based making them easy and eco-friendly to use in any environment. They are suitable for internal and external applications. 

MICACEOUS

Fine particles of pigmented iron oxides fuse to create soft lustrous effects that are reminiscent of a juxtaposed ‘organic-industrial’ finish.

Axolotl Micaceous can be spray or brush applied in two coats to create even or directional effects. With low VOC’s, the water based collection is easy to use and suitable both internally and externally. The Micaceous range is available in a palette specifically developed to complement Axolotl metals.

CEMENT PAINT - coming soon

A unique collection of authentic coloured cement finishes that will elevate any internal or external surface above the ordinary. Fine particles of cement powder are mixed with a zero VOC binder to create this modern, textural paint .

Axolotl Cement Paint can be brush applied in two coats to create even or directional effects. 

A zero VOC binder and water based makes our paint easy and eco-friendly to use in any environment. This range is suitable for internal and external applications. 

TIMBER WASH

Axolotl Timber Wash capitalises on the natural grain of timber and is the perfect choice in applications where the timber needs both protection and enhanced colour. 

With low VOC’s, the water based collection is easy to use and designed for use on quality timbers such as Cedar, Cypress, Oregon, treated Pine, all texture Ply and hardwoods. 

Available in both internal and external grade, with the option of sealing with a topcoat for internal use enabling you to create this look on high traffic areas such as furniture, bench tops and floors.

RUST PAINT

An architects favourite because of its character and complexity, Axolotl Rust Paint is an easy to apply and cost effective way to get an authentic rusted effect. As global pioneers in developing a rust finish that could be applied for decorative effect, we have adapted our unique process to give the beauty and patina of rust. The paint works authentically changing in appearance in response to where it’s painted, but  without being destructive to the structural integrity of the substrate.The paint can be applied on site for most interior and exterior settings.

PRIMERS

Axolotl Paint offers a range of Primers suitable for a range of projects. This includes speciality products for metals and for powdery surfaces to provide a key on the surface for use with other Axolotl primers and Paints. 

Also available is an elastomeric waterproofing membrane that creates a highly flexible protective skin over the substrate which will expand and contract with the structure.

Refer to the technical spec sheets for further information to determine which primer is the best choice for your project.

SEALERS

Axolotl offers two sealers. Clear Acrylic Sealer a non–yellowing matt clear protective sealant for use internally over most Axolotl Paint products. The low VOC acrylic formulation is designed to repel water reducing dirt pick up and improving washability. Particularly recommended for at finishes in high traffic areas.

Axolotl Urethane Sealer is a flexible, waterbased, protective clear satin finish. It is suited to higher traffic internal applications such as balustrades, doors, counters and furniture. Axolotl Urethane Sealer has minimal yellowing and is easy to recoat. Suitable for use over Axolotl Timberwash Interior, Chroma and Micaceous paints. Urethane sealer can also be used to seal raw timbers and concrete.
