Outstanding quality paint 10 litres £14.99 or £12.50 ea 2+ @ Screwfix

Found 26th Oct 2014
I have been renovating houses for sometime now and always come back to this or the Leyland trade emulsion. Both get outstanding reviews and at £25.00 for 20 litres of the stuff its an absolute bargain. Decorator friends have converted to the stuff.
I cannot find fault with the stuff when you compare it to premium brands I note 5 litres of Dulux emulsion is £18! from the likes of B & Q who actually own screw fix!!

So the deal is £14.99 for 10 litres or £25 for 20 litres.

How does it actually compare to Dulux though? I tried Johnson's (I think) Trade Paint and it needed about 50 coats.

Misleading title, only 12.50 If buying 2

It is comparable to Trade Dulux but that is £30 for 5litres in B & Q, it beats standard Dulux emulsion hands down, read trade reviews for reassurance not just myself.

Outstanding? Are you on the payroll?

Ok your right. I buy in bulk as I use a lot and it stores well. 20 litres is a lot for most homes but you can always split it with a friend to get it for £12.50. But at £14.99 for 10 litres its still a bargain when you compare it to other trade quality emulsions.

I use no nonsense brand and most of the products have good quality for the price

Do they do it in 'Dusted Tangerine Flair' though?

Why don't they do it in 'silk' instead of 'matt'?

Only use silk now on the walls, so i can wipe it easily when the kids mark it.

Been using the Wickes stuff for last few years and found it very good

wickes.co.uk/Wic…058

They do white and magnolia, but to get the £25 deal they have to be the same colour.


I Love Leyland trade paint...2 coats is all you need....Mixes well to create other colours
Tried Farrow and Ball...very good but costs a small fortune for a little paint...so

I used a small amount of magnolia (same make Leyland) to tint the colour to match Farrow and Ball
Can't tell the difference...quality appears the same... after 2 years...Very Pleased

I think I will get some leyland this Friday. Got a whole house to cover.

OP, did you mean to link this or the no nonse screw fix own brand stuff?

OP, did you mean to link this or the no nonse screw fix own brand stuff?



OP means the own brand as stated

I used crown trade paint before and used many coats with no success. I bought these and their paint is very thick so you dont need too many coats. Its not as smooth as the crown paint was. The paint was very coarse (grainy).

I used their foam rollers once and they were complete nonsense

This kind is awesome... Used it on my loft conversion - all brand new plaster - covered it very easily in one mist coat and two full coats.
wickes.co.uk/Dul…478
Twice the price but Wickes often have 3 for 2 offers on Dulux trade paints - I bought it under this offer and I needed primer and satinwood as well.

So the "no nonsense" stuff is cheaper but is it as good as Supermatt?

Makes me laugh when people go onto somebodys deal just to say that they wouldnt buy it. If the deal does not interest you, why would you even bother? Such sad lives.

BUT thanks op, great deal and heat added

If you think this is a good deal then you need to shop around some more and take a look at some more trade outlets!
I can buy 10L of Crown PBW for this price or Berger, but the Dulux is more money. 10L isn't really a big bucket though, so if you're using it regular you might want to consider the bigger trade sizes which work out even cheaper.

This paint is actually good, specially for the price. heat

Hot. I switched from dulux about a year ago, this stuff is fantastic in its own right. The price is excellent.

I don't rate Dulux that highly personally (prefer Crown or Dacrylate), but would rather use this than any of those; it's a great thick and creamy emulsion.

Note that it's not to be confused with the cheaper watery 'basics' emulsion that they do, it's not even remotely comparable to that.

Having had my first experience of this so called Trade Leyland paint the other week couldnt recommend it. Took two thirds of it to do the walls of a 2m square room it needed that many coats to get any coverage at all over magnolia matt. Even the ceiling which was already white took three coats and I can still see some off colour patches throughout the room.
Had to daub it on the walls and then lightly roller it out to get it looking right.
In contrast two coats of standard Crown emulsion covered a horrible burnt red colour in the living room using the same method.
Can see why the trade would love it though, certainly would help with day/hourly rate jobs. LOL

Any of the paints mentioned above are probably better than Dulux or Crown which I have found to really watered down and requiring up to 3 coats. Anyone in the Trade know if they have changed the mix. Anyway I am going to give the Leyland stuff a go.

the Trade Leyland paint is NOT this stuff. highly recommend this no nonsense stuff over pretty much all other trade paint

in my humble opinion obviously

Cheers OP. Might try this.

this is not outstanding quality paint. it might cover really well, most contract matt does, however, it doesn't wear well at all compared to even a standard vinyl matt emulsion let alone the durable acrylics that are available (dulux diamond matt etc. This stuff scuffs and marks very easily and so will look tired and grotty much more quickly, needing redecoration sooner. it is arguably acceptable for use on ceilings where there is low humidity and that don't require cleaning and perhaps to tidy up the spare room but it has no resistance to moisture and will look good for a couple of months tops in a high traffic corridor/hallway. for most applications contact matt is a false economy.

Was referring to the opening post, which made comparison between both the paints being "outstanding". If they are both so good and having used one of them being extremely poor (more of a false economy thing, if the paint is half the price but I have to use three times as much and the job took way longer than it should have done thanks to recoating then it's not a saving IMO) then ergo this one is also much the same?
Would be happy to try the other No Nonsense version when it comes time to get some more paint done based on your feedback though, we have a lot of decorating to do over the next few months and Screwfix is a place I am currently visiting at least once a week

Screwfix isn't owned by B & Q. Kingfisher own both companies. Have used this paint and find it perfect for what I used it for.

I prefer the Leyland trade to this nononsense.
However the nononsense is equally good on coverage and ease of application, but doesn't seem to be as tough as the Leyland.
I've recently used the bottom of a 3 year old layland white emulsion for a ceiling refresh and it was still as good as when I dumped it in the garage and forgot about it.

Silks a **** to paint over or wallpaper over I find when you get fed up looking at it.

Some people are purely negative but I find those who qualify why they won't buy something with a user experience (even a second hand one) to be helpful.

will look into it cheers

I have been painting (other peoples places) for more years than I can remember and mainly stick with what I know to be
not only reasonably priced but also a good paint in terms of coverage durability.
My daughter has a small leak on a radiator valve in an upstairs room, she noticed the mark on the ceiling and discovered the leak, had it fixed, then asked me to paint the ceiling, which by then had a patch about 2 ft x 2 ft of grey black, which I assume was the inhibitor in the heating system.
The cheapest easiest method of covering marks like that is one or two coats of solvent based undercoat, I gave it 4 coats and it still showed through and I was considering getting the ceiling skimmed when I remembered I had some Dulux trade white matt emulsion.
I only had some because I bought it cheap from a legitimate source (not saying where) I gave it one coat of the Dulux and it was like fresh snow. I used to buy mainly Johnston's trade emulsions which are really good, but their white (any white) is not as good as the Dulux .
