Product Dries Acrylic and Elastomeric Finishes Quicker


Anaheim, CA — July 08, 2010 - Parex USA, Inc. the parent company of leading building material brands; Parex, Teifs, LaHabra, El Rey Stucco, and Merkrete today announced the launch of new finish accelerator product, Accel-Dry.

Accel-Dry is ideal for wet and cold climates as it allows finishes to dry quicker. This allows for jobs to be completed ahead of inclement weather or to be finished sooner in slower drying markets.

"Accel-Dry gives applicators the product adaptability they need," said Quenton Roehricht, Brand Manager. "Weather and other issues can cause longer drying times and inhibit how quickly an applicator can complete a job. With the Accel-Dry admix, applicators can add the accelerator into the finish and decrease the dry time, allowing them to complete the job fast."

Accel-Dry can also be used to reduce the extended drying time often associated with darker tint colors. The product is very easy to use. Simply add Accel-Dry to the finish and mix.
