Sludge is a by-product of acrylic paint manufacturing. It is the combination of the precipitated solids amassed from Tri Art wash water, which has then been re-processed into thick and thin acrylic paint formats. The waste solids are made up primarily of assorted pigments, additives (such as calcium carbonate, coloured Mylar and matting agents) and dried acrylic particulate. Sludge is manufactured with 100% acrylic emulsion, is semi-opaque and contains a fine particulate giving it a lightly toothy texture. It is predominantly neutral grey in tone as the combination of colours produced in the factory during this time period dictate its hue, and no two batches are alike.
Sludge is a 100% eco-friendly product. By making Sludge line, Tri Art is keeping the liquid waste out of our water system and the solid waste from being incinerated.
