  • This new range of ADDITOL® dry CF Series products are additives that are inserted into the paint while it’s being created 
  • Paint will eventually fade, crack, yellow, split, peel – or a variety of other issues. But, the dry CF Series keeps the look and feel of the paint in top condition for a much longer timeframe and in a variety of situations: from a fresh coat of paint on a house to the hull of a ship, to a metal warehouse – and more
