I believe that's not the trade version. But I would like to know the difference? Lot of complaints about the coverage of the non trade version. How good is this?
Random question - but am considering paining my garage walls (currently bare brick) would this mixed with PVA do the trick?

That was the other option - just more costly and (with my skill set) somewhat more challenging! Appreciate the advice - thank you

I presume you mean the interior? And you're only going to use it as a garage/workshop? If so, then why not? It would work fine on it's own. Leyland Trade is excellent quality.

I can recommend the Water Based Satin. I just used it to repaint my pantry shelves. Great coverage and finish, and unlike other water based satin/eggshell paints I have used, it doesn't seem to remain too "sticky" after it has dried, which can become a bit of a problem with shelves.

Yes just the interior, have read to use PVA just to avoid it soaking in too muck / taking more coats than needed

I suppose you could do. PVA is often used before skimming a wall with plaster to help it stick and stop it drying to quickly. But unless your bricks are very porous I doubt you would need it before painting, particularly as your obviously not going to be going for an ultra-smooth finish.
Cheers be grabbing 5 of the vinyl matts tomorrow.
Good deal
What’s best option for painting on fresh plaster? Pva
base or watered down version of this

You should use pva in order to reduce soaking in, in order for the paint to stick well to the surface (without premature drying caused by brick sucking it in) it will hold a lot better with pva

Always pva fresh plaster before paint
Just finished a large extension and used Leyland Trade paint for all undercoat, gloss and ceilings - basically everything that is white. However having read up on these paints, I used the vinyl version of the emulsion, not the one in this deal. It's more expensive but has been brilliant and should be more durable. For the bare plaster I just did a 50:50 mix with water first.
