Flatting Base

FLATTING BASE is a gloss reducing additive that has been designed for use with the Dulux® LUXATHANE® R AND ACRATHANE® IF range of products. The matting additive effectively produces a flattened, smooth and even paint film. The gloss level obtained is dependent on the coating choice and the amount of FLATTING BASE used. 


While the LUXATHANE® Range now includes products with lower gloss levels eg LUXATHANE® SPX (satin), there may still be a need to use ACRATHANE® IF at a lower gloss level. 


  • Enables a wider range of gloss levels to be achieved


  • Low sheen levels achievable
  • Smooth finish
  • Excellent flow
  • Easy to use
