Unleashing Unprecedented Performance

Enhanced Opacity

Acronal® EDGE 7073 is a paint formulation that has demonstrated remarkable coverage and opacity, exceeding the industry standard. With this product, users can say goodbye to uneven finishes and expect stunning and consistent results. The exceptional coverage of Acronal®  EDGE 7073 ensures that fewer coats are needed to achieve the desired finish, saving time and resources.


In-can Biocide-Free

IO-Hybrid Technology's creation of a high pH environment effectively prevents microorganism contamination, eliminating the need for in-can biocides in dispersion and paint formulations. This advancement ensures a safer and healthier environment for users, maintaining performance levels. In-can biocides, commonly used to prevent microbial growth and extend coating shelf life, can pose health and environmental risks. By removing reliance on in-can biocides, paints formulated with IO-Hybrid Technology offer comparable performance without the associated concerns.

Anti-Microbial Protection 

The alkaline-enriched micropore structure of IO-Hybrid Technology in Acronal® EDGE 7073 enables it to actively combat viruses and bacteria on walls. This unique feature helps keep spaces clean and protected. The micropore structure of the coating creates an alkaline environment that is unfavorable for the growth and survival of viruses and bacteria. As a result, the coating provides an added layer of protection, reducing the risk of contamination and maintaining a hygienic environment.
