Paints & Woodcare Products – May 2020


Wood Care Range

Barrettine’s Wood Care range includes protectors, preservers and oils for all types of wood. For example, ‘Nourish & Protect’ Wood Protective Treatment provides water and UV protection whilst Wood Preserver provides additional protection against wood boring insects, wood rotting fungi and blue stain, as well as water and UV resistance.

All-in-One Decking Oil creates a non-flaking finish that protects against water and UV-rays, helping to prevent splitting, cracking and fading. A surface biocide preserver also protects against mould and algae growth. For follow-on treatment, Anti-Slip Decking Oil is a low-sheen top-coat that enhances grip underfoot and also provides further protection against the elements whilst helping to slow discolouration.

Johnstone’s Trade

Aqua Guard

Designed to provide interior wood and metal surfaces with the ‘ultimate defence’ against scratches, wear and tear and greasy finger marks, Johnstone’s Trade has launched Aqua Guard. A durable water based satin paint, the company says that Aqua Guard has advanced application properties, excellent covering power and long-lasting whiteness.

With quick drying and low odour qualities, the water based technology also means that customers don’t have to worry about lingering paint smells. The new product sits within the firm’s already well-established Aqua Water Based Collection, which is designed to offer high-quality water based alternatives to traditional solvent based paints.

HMG Paints

Stockist support

Demonstrating the support on offer to distributors selected on their “reputation, expertise and local knowledge”, HMG Paints is working with TopDec Decorating Supplies which has recently opened a new store in Hemel Hempstead.

Alongside HMG’s full decorative range, the new store stocks the family-owned manufacturer’s next generation interior gloss and satin for professional painters and decorators. The gloss and satin offer a premium quality water-based, protective finish for use on interior woodwork. Avoiding the yellowing of oil-based paint over time, this water-based equivalent is said to have excellent colour retention as well as superior coverage and applies with enhanced ease of flow by brush, roller, or spray application.

Performance Cutting-in brush

Hamilton says that the Performance 2” Cutting-in brush is “designed to deliver great results fast”. Boasting good paint pick up and spreading rate, the brush features an angled profile for precision cutting in and is said to be especially effective on hard to reach architraving where awkward angles are often found.

Working effectively with water-based paints, the brush is made using high quality synthetic filament giving good paint application. With a short, quality wooden handle for easy and comfortable use, it features a rust resistant stainless-steel ferrule.

Easy clean and vapour box compatible, the brush comes presented in a counter-top shelf ready unit of 16 brushes.

Developed in response to changing paint formulations, the firm’s Expression brushes have been designed to provide a great finish with water-based paints. Created in conjunction with Hamilton’s Professional Decorators’ Panel, each brush features ‘Max Stroke’ — a synthetic filament blend that is said to deliver a smooth and consistent finish whilst also achieving optimal paint pick-up and release.
