I paid £45 for this last time I bought it so this is a mega bargain.

Description:
A matt emulsion paint for use on interior walls and ceilings that are not fully dry. Ideal for use on new interior plaster and masonry surfaces as well as a range of building boards.

Magnolia is also same price.

5 Litre is £21.98 so this is good price for 10 litre

£27 is way out of my budget for 10L of paint. Not voting but poss a good deal.

It is expensive paint (although cheaper than elsewhere at this price) but its the correct paint to use on newly plastered walls. Im having my living room completely skimmed next week, and ive just had the kitchen ceiling and bedroom ceiling done and some other bits plastered so have lots of painting to do.

It is suitable for newly plastered walls because it is thin paint, any good quality paint will do the same job with about 50% water added.
#4
Thats not true inactive. Its the right paint to use because new plaster sucks the water out of paint and leaves a sheet on the surface which can flake or peel off.

Dont confuse this paint with the normal dulux rich matt stuff thats like £15 for 10 litres. Its not the same paint.

That is exactly what happens with diluted good quality emulsion, I think you have been sucked in by the hype.

You will not see a decorator using this stuff.

Have you ever used this paint? It is certainly not thin, even when water down for new plaster. It gives excellent coverage for newly plastered walls and for covering up darker colours. Personally I have always found it is very expensive for a limited benefit however.

You will, and do. I am working on a huge building project at the moment and was surprised to see Dulux Trade was the only paint used, and supermatt was used by the bucket load.

Maybe I have, maybe I havent. But I know for a fact that this paint is designed to do what I want it to do. I aint paying all the money I have done to have my rooms plastered and then cutting corners by using some cheap paint to save a few quid.

You believe what you want, but at least I know my walls wont be screwed up when its finished.
#9
I've been around the trade for many years, and I can tell you that you get what you pay for in paint. I wouldn't use anything else on newly plastered walls after trying other products and the ' 50% watered down' tricks. Its also ideal for coverage on old walls that you've stripped and filled. Apduk is right in wanting to do the job properly. Believe the 'hype' if you want a great finish. If you don't care about the finish then use cheap rubbish. The choice is yours!

Only the best decorators use this, the cowboys use the cheap stuff.
As a professional decorator for 25 years I would say this is top quality and well worth the money, it's not thin but should be thinned 1 to 3 on bare plaster
#13
So, comparing it to this stuff which is crown and £12.87? I've got a lot of painting to do in the new house, the wallpaper is off and its practically back to the plaster

Oh nooo, PVA v's watered down emulsion.
This might take a bit.

Will Homebase pricematch this?

I'm a proffessional City and Guilds qualified decorator with 26yrs experience, using a cheaper watered down emulsion will NOT ruin your newly painted walls. What is more important is correct preperation (ie. letting the plaster dry, making sure it's dust free, using a mist coat etc).

This paint is a trade paint and designed for use in situations where you don't have time to allow the plaster to dry fully. It does though have very good opacity and will give excellent coverage. If using in a DIY situation paying full price for this would be a waste of money, any good Dulux emulsion would be a perfect choice. (even cheap emulsion wouldn't ruin your walls)

At this price it is an excellent deal though and voted hot.
#17
This is great stuff for new walls, and a really good price. Go and look at some of the posts over on DIY forums if you have any doubt - a lot of professionals swear by this stuff.

... after 20yrs of using and selling paint.. this by far the best "new plaster" product on the market. firstly there isnt any "vinyl" in paint nor has there ever been. its purely a term used to describe its washable abilities. Supermatt has no LRV "light reflecting value" so it shows NO imperfection in the plaster. crown £12.87 is contract matt.. Dulux do "glidden contract matt" which will do the same job. PVA is a water based glue to aid binding in plaster, NOT as a plaster sealer.. do that at your own risk! as for 50% water... thin any paint that far and you might as well warm it up, add 2 sugars and call it tea!.. its not gonna be paint. or a mis-coat.. Supermatt has the ability to cover uneven surfaces, dark colours in 1 coat. thats way 80% of contracted jobs use it. B&Q shouldnt be selling TRADE/COMMERICAL products to retail/diy/eastern european muppets.. stick to crown/b&q own brand and Dulux retail brands and leave Trade products for the experts.....

First - not read the comments (yet) after this but I bet you are correctly told you are talking TOTAL nonsense.
Hate so called experts.....

EDIT (read comments now) I was right - you are talking nonsense inactive.... Comment above sums up exactly what I thought...

This is not true! Most good quality paints contain copolymer binders such as Vinyl acetate ethylene copolymer which are vinyl, Vinyl also puts the V in PVA or Poly(vinyl acetate),

Supermatt has no LRV "light reflecting value" so it shows NO imperfection in the plaster.

If it doesn't reflect light is it black paint, or does it glow white?
suspended#22
My dad seen this in a charity shop the other day and called me to ask if I thought it was a good deal for £7. I told him that I thought it was alright but as the sales were on its probably no cheaper than the shops and yes, I feel a right pleb now after reading this.

Still, saying as he really only wanted paint that will go over wallpaper that has already been painted, I don't think this would have been what he wanted after all. (My saving grace ha ha).

why is everyone arguing this is by far one of dulux's best paint and is brilliant for covering any dark colours to go over with a lighter one. I work in B&Q and i wouldn't bother farting about watering down coats etc etc i'd just use a pva mixture to seal plaster 1 to 5 cos once that's on and dry it's job done.
But if your debit card is registered with quidco you get 2% cashback when you purchase this in store so that makes it better again :-)

pva your newly plastered walls and you can use any paint you like

thats crazy....the pva will dry hard and eventually wont be able to hold the weight of the paint which will start peeling off. it will also seal any residual moisture into the plaster causing bubbles etc. youre creating a permanent problem by using pva as a seal
dulux trade paint is as good as it gets imho

please stop suggesting PVA should be used.. if your going to use supermatt or paint in general, you have no need for PVA.. keep it for sealing before wallpapering..

if u use a pva mix it will eventually peel off and the diyer will have to call in the professionals to carry out a repair job which sorta makes it pointless doing it oneself in the first place
if u dont believe me, have a read at BS6150 http://shop.bsigroup.com/en/ProductDetail/?pid=000000000030095369

The whole point of this paint is for tradespeople, who want to save time and their hourly rate makes it cheaper to use a better paint. For diy where time is not as important letting the plaster dry then appling pva & water mix and painting with cheap ordinary emulsion is fine.

You should check your wording, you said:

" B&Q shouldnt be selling TRADE/COMMERICAL products to retail/diy/eastern european muppets"

So B&Q shouldn't be selling trade/commercial products to Eastern European muppets, in your words, do you not see why that is a racist statement. Stating "muppets" would have done.

However, with all due respect, it's paint, non-professionals can deal with using Dulux Trade. It isn't anything complicated, it just has specific uses written on the site for the layman and decorators, alike.

No, I know the word I am looking for is racism, suggesting that Eastern European people are muppets. Of course is it also prejudice (in a racist manner) to suggest B&Q shouldn't sell to Eastern European (supposed muppets).

It's paint, it's not got a fancy label but it's paint, when as a non-professional I use Dulux Trade, it still works in the same was as when a career decorator uses it, funnily enough.

Stop telling people to use pva! You don't want to seal plaster. You ideally want to let plaster dry out which can be months.
Pva is for use on wall prior to plastering.
Stop offering advice when you have no idea what you are talking about!
Hot vote for paint price and the paint which pros use.
