What is One Hour Ceramic?

Pure luxury...

One Hour Ceramic (OHC) is 100% acrylic matte wall finish formulated with ceramic micro-spheres that offer superior stain resistance and supreme depth of color. This matte finish has a unique softness to the touch that is to be celebrated! What makes One Hour Ceramic "Luxury Interior Paint"? It’s all about state-of-the-art self-crosslinking resin and 3m Ceramic Microsphere Technology!

In other low sheen or matte coatings pigments stick up out of surface of the resin to create a matte finish because the resin would otherwise be glossy.  These pigments are rough because they are minerals that are repeatedly crushed until they are very small. The process results in a particle with a coarse surface that is difficult to remove a stain from. In One Hour Ceramic the Ceramic Micro-spheres reduce the gloss of the coating while improving its stain resistance and wash-ability. Another great advantage of the OHC is that unlike conventional coatings the OHC is Matte in any color. In conventional coatings manufactures have to increase the sheen of their deep and ultra bases to maintain wash-ability, this is unnecessary with a ceramic fortified finish ensuring that you get a fully saturated color in a rich matte finish in any of our 25 beautiful colors.

Sheen-truly matte! This hides imperfections and disperses light instead of reflecting it; this allows the most depth of color without sheen.

Supreme Stain resistance properties! The ceramic micro beads will not absorb stains like other matte finish paint filled with mattifying agents made from rock. The strength and scrub-ability is fantastic!

Self-priming on most surfaces! Self-priming on all drywall, cured plaster, and masonry substrates. Bare metal or wood should be primed with Wise Owl Stain Eliminating Primer.

Self-leveling! Application is a breeze with self-leveling properties.  It Is engineered to reduce or eliminate any drag and to promote a more user-friendly painting experience.  This gives novice painters an edge and produces professional results!

​The incredible coverage comes from the pigment ingredient’s quality and ratios.  We use only high strength zero VOC pigments for colorant.

Why isn’t OHC a zero VOC wall paint? OHC is extremely low VOC at 50 g/l. It Is engineered to reduce or eliminate any drag by increasing open time.
