Seems to be a contradiction in terms on the label? Contract matt is a paint with no vinyl (plastic) in it, used for misting fresh plaster. The idea is that 2 or 3 coats can be applied, that soak into the plaster to give it something for further layers to grip to.
Vinyl is the plastic in the paint, that makes it washable and durable, causing an impenitrable layer, and if added to fresh plaster, will start to peel in patches, especially where the fresh plaster has been more polished.
Note: If it has vinyl in it, don't use it on new plaster!
Edit: I see you have now edited the original listing to exclude 'contract vinyl' in title. Very surprised/amused it went so hot before.

I thought it was only oil based paints, like gloss paint for wood, that suffered from yellowing. Matt emulsion should be colour stable.

I've used Johnstones white paint in the past - never again as the areas I've painted have gone yellow after a few years. You've been warned.

I thought contract matt 'emulsion' was what you dilute for a mist coat, for base coats, and for ceilings, and that vinyl matt 'emulsion' was a hard-wearing top coat.

What is contract vinyl matt? Does contract have a different meaning in this combination, as surely you wouldn't be using vinyl on mist coats on fresh plaster?
Those who have clicked and collected what did they give you contract vinyl or standard matt emulsion??
Pic of a 10l tub, crafty. So more likely it is not contract but and this instead

Happened in our house some prat put vinyl magnolia on plaster and any scuff leaves the plaster showing and a bugger to get a good finish with out using heat gun and peeling the lot off.
I always use Leyland Emulsion . Available from Screwfix. Recommended
I use this stuff quite a lot and can always pick it up for £13 for 10l in b&m and usually cheaper in Homebase (although not sure they are still stocking it).

Clearly this is a good price but it isn’t half price of the going rate
For base or mist cost on new plaster, I can recommend Wickes own brand New Plaster paint. Looks greyish when painting but once it dries it dries to a fantastic brilliant white finish.

About £12 for a 10lb tub if i remember correctly.

For fresh plaster you would use three layers of emulsion paint, watered down to varying degrees. For existing surfaces, undiluted emulsion is fine but easily marked. Most surfaces tend to be emulsioned, but you can’t wipe it with a damp cloth because it is water-based paint and it will start to come off.
Some people prefer to use harder wearing paint (satin and eggshell) where it might get marked, such as a stairwell. This is semi-gloss paint and it can be wiped with a damp cloth to clean off marks.

Which paint would you recommend?

Which paint would you recommend?


Most walls I use emulsion, as recently painted surfaces can be patched with a dab of paint if they get marked. If you have kids, then you might want to use harder wearing paint in your hallway.
Also consider that Matt paints Wuhlheide imperfections on poor quality walls, whereas the shinier paints will highlight imperfections.
The final thing I would say is that cheaper paints tend to be very thin and so you will require three coats. Obviously this is a lot of work to do and you will also need a light sand between coats if you care about the finish! One option here is to use Dulux trade paint, for example, as you will get away with two coats. It is not cheap, but you have to compare the additional cost with having to paint your room third time, to say nothing of the additional payment required. You can buy it from a trade centre where they will mix just about any colour for you. The DIY shops tend only to carry a few colours though.

Hi, i know a few members have commented that this is not the trade paint. The picture was taken directly from the Asda website which showed the item as contract paint in the image but not the description. The image has now been updated.

Thank you for pointing out about the wrong picture
This is not good paint and doesent cover well.

Used it on our ceiling and had to do 4 coats to get it to cover.
Changed to Wickes trade paint and it was so much better.

Cheap paint means more labour.
