Our Guide to Reinforcement Fleeces

Dacfill Fleece

For some of our products you may have noticed that they are paired up with non-paint items to work alongside them. For some products these are self explanatory, such as aggregates to add to floor paints to make them anti-slip. However some require a bit more explanation, and one area where we’ve found a lot of people struggle is when it comes to reinforcement fleeces.

These are mesh layers that are placed in between the layers of paint to add strength to the surface and create a longer lasting system. But you need the right one to fit the job so this guide will help you.

Murfill Fleece

The Murfill fleece comes in 2 varieties, the woven and the non-woven. Both can be interchangeable depending on the surface that you’re painting on, but there are a few key differences.

Woven: The woven fleece is workable and flexible, which makes it ideal for down-pipes, channels, or other surfaces where there are bends and curves. It can be moulded to the shape of the surface, whilst also giving reinforcement to the surface.

Non-Woven: The non-woven fleece is more rigid and less flexible, which makes it far more suited to large flat surfaces. It’s strong and it will not stretch or deform while the paint is being applied.

Dacfill Fleece

The Dacfill fleece comes in the standard polyester mesh variation and also a Glassfibre variation; again both products are suited to different jobs.

Polyester Fleece: The standard Dacfill Fleece is available in three different widths, and is embedded between coating applications to reinforce the system. This fleece is then able to be overcoated with either a solvent based or a water based material

Glassfibre Fleece: This product is made of strands of fibreglass which have been held together with an adhesive. By doing this it is then easier to position during the application of the paints, as it is a strong and stiff layer. If a solvent-based paint is applied to it solvent breaks down the adhesive, which allows the strands to migrate more readily into the coating film. This allows the strengthening qualities to more easily become a part of the coating system that you are applying. If a water-based paint is applied the adhesive does not break down but this does not impair the performance of the system.

Noxyde Fleece

The Noxyde Fleece only comes in one variation, which keeps it nice and easy. It’s similar in a lot of ways to the Dacfill Reinforcement Fleece however it is a slightly heavier gauge material. This means that it is very well suited to high build coating systems. As this only comes in 1 set length the Dacfill Fleece can be used as a substitute if a different width is required.

I've used Andrews Coatings quite a few times over the last few months and their service has always been first class. This is especially true when a manufacturer discontinued a paint - The customer service department went out of their way to obtain any available materials to allow me to complete my project. I can't recommend highly enough!

Have recently used Andrews Coatings for the first time and I cannot recommend them enough! With the current COVID crisis i was appreciative there may be a delay with my order but their excellent customer service team were very responsive to my queries and i received my order in good time! The technical knowledge of the team was very useful when deciding what paint to use. It goes to show that years of experience does result in better service!

I recently needed to order a special type of paint from Andrews Coatings to be delivered to Sweden. They responded quickly to my emails, were very helpful and despite all the Corona chaos the shipment arrived only a few days after I made the order. I rarely write reviews, but dealing with this company really was a pleasure.

I recently really wanted a particular type of paint to renovate my kitchen units that I had stripped during lockdown. the problem I have was the paint I wanted was sold in the uk and I am based in Spain. I contacted Andrews coatings and asked if they would consider posting abroad and didn't expect much to come of it. Then to my surprise they said they would but needed to check postage. They did this really quickly for me and I agreed to the sale. The six tins of paint arrived really well and packed perfectly in only a few days. such a quick and professional service and definitely a company that goes all-out to keep customers happy. I will have no problem in recommending them to anyone and I'll also use again if the need arises. 5stars from me!

Before I started to plan painting of my garage floor, I didn't anticipate it would be so technical. Youtube threw up so many options with product lists from the USA and Canada that aren't always readily available in the UK. Sometimes you wish you had someone helping who just knows the best answers to your obscure questions. The product knowledge shown by Mark Bullock was outstanding. He matched up the best products for the preparation of the floor and, when I decided after painting to add a clear coat, Mark once again advised the best products for me which I never would have found for myself; it's evident he doesn't just read it off a screen and his expertise saved me time, money and bother. Andrews Coatings also beat the price from at least two leading competitors. An assured Five Stars.
