Breakthrough - Resene Broadwall

From the Resene product range

Ranchsliders, massive windows, super smooth finishes and monolithic walls can be a nightmare causing critical light conditions and less than perfect finishes on walls as the glancing light shines a spotlight on any surface imperfections.

Resene Broadwall 3 in 1

The situation is made worse when the level of finish is insufficient, such as a level 4 finish when a level 5 finish is needed.

Resene Broadwall 3 in 1 can resolve this nightmare for you...

  • Spray applied high build suitable for use on timber, gypsum board stoppings, fibrous plaster and polymer based stopping compounds.
  • Single step coating that outperforms the traditional system of conventional skim coating, joint compound and primer coat.
    1. A sealer (when thinned),
    2. A surfacer
    3. A finish coat on ceilings tinted to a range of popular Resene colours.
  • In ceiling applications where a flat white finish is desired, it may be left unpainted providing an ideal final finish.
  • Minimises callbacks caused by joint banding and photographing.
  • Ensures smoother finished walls and ceilings than by simply using a plasterboard primer.
  • Requires minimal sanding substantially reducing dust and enabling faster project completion.
  • Installed cost savings versus traditional separate applications of a skim coat and a primer coat.


Results are achieved with airless spray using a unit capable of achieving a flow rate of no less than 3 litres per minute, such as Graco Ultra 795 Mark ll. A 527 tip is recommended for application to small areas and a 1227 tip is recommended for application to larger areas (tip sizes are minimum required for application). Use a 60 mesh gun and in line filters with a 3/8 hose from the spray unit. Power leads for unit operation must not exceed 20 metres.

Roller option

For those who prefer to apply a skim coating by roller or brush, try Resene Broadwall Surface Prep & Seal designed to skim coat the surface and seal ready for topcoating.
