Granosite Paint Finishes and Bostik Waterproofing

Wattyl offers, as a paint finish for Loxo Panels, the GranoImpact paint product. Hover over the images below to find the name, and click to see a description of the product.


GranoImpact® is a pure acrylic, high performance elastomeric coating able to be applied in a variety of styles by roller or spray.

GranoImpact® systems have good adhesion to a wide variety of substrates and have excellent resistance to mould and fungi.

As an acrylic membrane, the vapour permeability of GranoImpact® is carefully controlled to form a barrier to external moisture, while allowing vapour in the substrate to escape. It is, however, not suitable for situations where hydrostatic pressure exists.

GranoImpact® provides the best of both worlds combining the protective quality of high performance membrane but with the ease of use of application and aesthetic appeal of a decorative paint.


Bostik ASA Dampfix Gold – Dampfix Gold is an elastomeric one part fibre-reinforced water-based polyurethane membrane used for waterproofing shower recesses, bathrooms, laundries and roofs.
