Painting and Decorating Product Guide
Painting & Decorating Crown Product Reference Guide
In the painting and decorating industry we claim our workmanship and our ability to turn something quite awful into something quite spectacular. This could be as simple as a door or as large as music hall.
This makes our industry interesting and at times enjoyable. Yes we work for ourselves to produce the goods but with the technology today many products we use can add that little bit of spice to a project and enhance the quality finish the customer always look for.
Experience can be a victim of success however there are times when experience is paramount. We have a team of painters and decorators we use and generally more often than not they are reliable trade persons. Between us we all have knowledge and ways of doing things, procedure, systematic, safety these are all elements that get built into our working ways.
Below are products recommended by me to the outside world? You can Google; you can drive round the odd Saturday morning; you can even ask a painter however this may not be to your liking.
The first list you can purchase at Crown Professional Products. These are paint supplies to the professionals and the non professionals.
• Wood Primer: A premium quality solvent-borne primer designed specifically to be used on various timbers. Crown Trade Wood primer seals the surface, provides excellent adhesion properties and acts as a sound foundation for the chosen system. Interior and exterior use. It’s advisable to wear tight fitting gloves, a hat and if you are working above head height and if need be thin slightly with white spirit. If the surface area is wide you can use a mini roller but be extra careful when applying in a hurry. You can use this on most bare wood but please realise that some timbers are not meant to be primed at all, if this is the case the primer will not bond. Please read what woods to prime.
• Aluminium Wood Primer: This is the big difference between your DIY and experience painters. I’m a big fan of this product but it has a purpose and that purpose should be for resinous, hardwoods, non bitumen based preservatives if this is the case use Bulls Eye 1.2.3. Many people paint over windows that have been stained, varnished even untreated timber. It’s untreated timber because it’s meant to be untreated. Crown Trade Aluminium Wood Primer is designed for interior and exterior priming of hardwoods, resinous softwoods and wood treated with wood preservative. This product has self knotting properties and seals stains and tannins in timber. Interior and exterior use.
