Acrylic Stucco Brands Explained

Acrylic Stucco Brands Explained

There are a many differences between traditional stucco, which is cement based and acrylic stucco (or synthetic stucco), which is made primarily of acrylics.

They each have their own characteristics, challenges, textures and colors. I am going to explain what these are and try to insert as many pictures as I can, so you can make a definite distinction between the two and choose which one is right for you.

Acrylic Stucco:

Basically acrylic stucco is a high quality paint-like product that has aggregate mixed into it, that acts as a finishing texture. It usually comes in 5 gallon buckets and is white when in it’s raw form.

Color bottles are used to color the material and usually need to be mixed to the bucket, in order to achieve the desired color that is shown on manufacturer’s color charts.

Next, a drill, with a special mixing attachment is used to mix the material and the color bottle together for approximately 3-5 minutes.

Acrylic Stucco Brands:

There are a wide range of manufacturers that carry acrylic and synthetic stucco mixtures throughout the United States. Here is a list of some of the more popular ones that are available at most stucco supply yards:
