Just brought a tub of this to paint over some rusty garden furniture and its done the job brilliantly, especially when hammerite paint does exactly the same thing at twice the price.

Just for info, silver is more of a 'grey primer' colour.

So you have used this product ?

I used it a few days ago. It's quite a thin paint to apply unlike Hammerite, but so far so good. I applied it to my garage door and it looks great, minimal runs and coats nice. Time will tell if it lasts, but for a fiver I figured it was worth a shot.

Used it yesterday look GREAT

can this be used on drain pipes and gutters

Voted hot, I purchased 2 tins last year, No rust in site and still looks like a fresh coat of paint.
Very easy to paint, much like Hammerite just not quite as "metaly" but less "tacky" so easier to get a nice coat.
I would buy this over Hammerite.

If they are the old metal ones, then yes. If you have a lot to do then just replace with PVC unless you have period property, much easier and very cheap.

I painted our galvanized washing line post the other day with this, goes on really well with a good coverage. I wouldn't say its that thin though.

Going to pick up another colour later

It goes further then Hammerite does, I painted bench, table ,washing line pole and more still lots left love it worth every penny

What the cleanup like? Hammerite, etc needs special thinner to clean the brushes

It's not bad, but I forgot and tried to use my hand under some running water to clean the brush out! opps, black hands. Washing liquid doesn't quite cut it, had to use white spirit to clean my hands (and the brush).

Hi. First comment even for me!

I'm interested in this paint. Is it like hammerite smooth? Is there a temperature rating on it?

Hammerite smooth is good for car calipers and wondered if this would do just as good.

Thanks!

Yes I have used this product recently painting my garage doors, and as other people have already stated, it's more than up to the job and I would say certainly equal to if not better than hammerite at half the price.

I used it on callipers... (White callipers on a mauve car) It Looked surprisingly good ! I got rid of the car about 8 months later no signs of rust and seemed to be heat resistant.

not used it but Aldi sruff is usually very good. I have recently used an old tin of Hammerite. black hammered finish. pretty fantastic as it had been used when new 4 years earlier. exp3nsive stuff though. would take a punt on this though.

Been waiting for this to be one available again in Aldi. Used it on a beautiful rose design table, chairs, bench and parasol base and they look and feel lovely. Very easy to apply and work with. Thanks for sharing this!

"Become available again" iPad changing what I REALLY wanted to say again! oO

Picked some up today
Thanks for the heads up OP

Got green today wanted black none left bah,states thinners not white spirit for clean up,like hammerite.

if i use it once and there is some left, do i have to use it straight away or within a specific period or can i keep it for a long time when i open it?

Just make sure the lid is well sealed, it will last for years.

Got this to repaint a metal bird bath. Went on well, good coverage. Have to be careful not to put too much on as it can dry with runs and drips but dries with an excellent glossy finish. Maybe I didn't leave it long enough to dry but it has discolour in the bird bath under the water line but no major issue. Overall, good stuff.

when can i buy aldi,s green metal paint in the south shields store from,thanks.

This was back on sale from 6th april , grabbed 2 tins at my local store as still had a few left over , might be worth a shot at looking for it , a friend got some in oxford , i am in cambridgeshire , but overs have said in wolverhampton and other places (car forum)

Have used this paint on down pipes and guttering and found it a very good product waiting for it come on again.

Painted some rusted metal brackets and the kids trike which lives in the garden last year with the green paint. just gave them a quick wire brush and brush painted them, nothing fancy, all of the item have been outside since and they are as good as the day they were painted, with no rust coming through, the paint went over existing coatings, rusted and clean steel no problems. Also painted a concrete doorstep with the stuff, and it is very durable, excellent stuff, shame its only on offer a few times a year

It's back in stock tomorrow , plus similar same make but newer colours , catalog.aldi.com/ema…et/

Got 3 cans earlier they had loads in stock plus other ones similar in New colours , plus thinners , chalk board paint and allsorts

Anyone used it to paint a car?

I used the Aldi paint on a trailer frame 3 years ago. As with all paints, good prep is important, but I wasn't fastidious - just de-rusted, slapped on some phosphoric acid, rinse off, let dry, then lathered on the paint.
The trailer's been outdoors since then and not a trace of rust is appearing anywhere; the paint is still sound and adhering perfectly.
I'll certainly buy more of this, but every time it appears, my local store gets sold out of it quickly, as word has spread about how good this stuff is. The only other source of paint in my small town sells it for twice the price for the cheap stuff - and goes up from there, so you can see how that makes this paint a hot seller.

Yeah, i was not pleasantly surprised too when i opened my last can. Couple of
years before it used to be shinny silver! Whats up with that. i hope they return
to the old formula.
