Five hundred years later Texston presents Palladino, an updated version of the same aesthetics, specifically formulated for external surfaces. Thanks to tradition and technology, its innovative formula contains special ingredients and its solvent free formulation is extremely low in chemical additives (less than 3% in dry residue). In combination with other products Palladino can be applied in 3 different options: glossy, completely mat, and mat with natural shading.
