SofTex™ is a versatile, easy to apply material. Translucent and soft to the touch, it can be used to create linen effects and dimensional color patterns as well as simulating heavy fabric. As a result of its excellent bonding capability, water-based SofTex™ is able to fill minor wall cracks and defects. In addition, SofTex™ also has sound absorbing qualities that make it a truly unique material.
