After a two-year search for the right chemist, in 2012 ACRYFIN® was born. Since then, both John & Johnny have made it their mission to provide a low-cost, high-quality product to the consumer to avoid the hundreds of thousands of dollars spent to repair or replace deck paint and dock paint for both residential and commercial businesses.
What began as a science experiment in Charleston, SC quickly turned into both a product and a business selling deck paint, concrete stain, wood coating, exterior paint, and more to consumers and to other local entrepreneurs as official ACRYFIN® dealers across the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean.
Frequently Asked Questions
Below are some of the most Frequently Asked Questions ( FAQs ) about ACRYFIN® Acrylic Polymer Coatings. If you have a question about our protective coating and sealant that is not addressed below, please contact us. We will be happy to assist you.
What are the costs associated with an ACRYFIN coating?
The cost depends on the job; meaning how much time it will take, how much protective coating and sealant is necessary, labor, pressure washing, exterior paint, etc. Many times the larger the job, the lower the cost per square foot, depending on the condition of the surface being treated. This is why on-site estimates are required. Also, all markets are different; Consult your local ACRYFIN® dealer for an estimate.
How long does ACRYFIN last?
ACRYFIN® comes with a 10 year warranty from separating from the surface it’s applied to when applied by one of our dealers. That being said, if it’s a private residence and doesn’t see a lot of traffic, it will last even longer! A “service” coat can be added on top of the existing coat whenever the customer requests.
What colors does ACRYFIN come in?
The color can be any paint color the customer desires.
What are the surfaces that Acryfin doesn't coat?
ACRYFIN® cannot be used on any surface previously coated with epoxies, nor on PVC or plastics. Sappy wood must be completed sanded down before applying ACRYFIN® wood coating.

Three to Four days, however it cures enough for foot traffic within a few hours.
