Help with finishes - Sanderson Paint

Choosing the right Sanderson paint.

Active Emulsion

This high-performance product is ideal for busy family homes where paintwork can be subjected to tough love. Ideal for corridors, kitchens, and playrooms, Sanderson Active Emulsion is highly durable and can be used on walls and woodwork. It looks great too - with only a 6% sheen level, it achieves that classic matt appearance whilst maintaining a smooth, washable finish.

Matt Emulsion

For that classic flat chalky finish, Sanderson Matt Emulsion brings exceptional coverage and an undeniable elegance to interior walls and ceilings. It leaves a gently spongeable surface that is ideal for most rooms with a small word of caution for bathrooms and kitchens; these rooms must very well ventilated and the painted wall should not come into direct contact with water.

 

Water Based Eggshell

Sanderson Acrylic Eggshell is a hard-wearing, water-based paint suitable for interior walls, ceilings, woodwork, radiators and metalwork. It has a washable, low sheen finish, making it perfect for kitchens, bathrooms and conservatories. Also suitable for use on interior and exterior woodwork and metals which have been primed.

 

Oil Based Eggshell

This traditional oil-based paint gives a low sheen finish that is resistant to steam and condensation, making it ideal for kitchens, bathrooms and conservatories. It’s also durable enough for interior and exterior woodwork and metalwork (with a suitable primer) including doors, window frames, skirting boards and radiators.

 

Aftercare Advice

ACTIVE EMULSION AND MATT EMULSION

Cleaning: For light soiling on smooth surfaces use a diluted lukewarm solution of domestic washing up liquid and a clean sponge or lint free cloth. Ensure sponge or cloth is well wetted (but not dripping), dab the affected area and repeat as required. Avoid circular cleaning motion as this may polish up the surface. For textured walls, a cloth should be used rather than a sponge to avoid the formation of hard to remove bits due to sponge degradation.

Keep your home well ventilated during activities likely to contribute to oil and grease accumulation, such as cooking.

Tackle dust generated from DIY by containment, collecting at source or thorough vacuum cleaning.

To prevent marking, always use a soft brush attachment to vacuum clean adjacent surfaces.

Repair: Apply a thinned down primer coat to any bare porous surface. Repaint wall section “break to break” for best results. In most cases, spot repairs will remain visible and produce an aesthetically unacceptable result.

ACRYLIC EGGSHELL

Cleaning: For light soiling on smooth surfaces use a diluted lukewarm solution of domestic washing up liquid and a clean sponge or lint free cloth. Ensure sponge or cloth is well wetted (but not dripping), dab the affected area and repeat as required.

Ensure radiators are at room temperature before attempting to clean using the procedure above. Cleaning hot radiators may result in localised or uneven polishing of the surface and should be avoided wherever possible.

To help prevent general build up, keep your home well ventilated during activities likely to contribute to oil and grease accumulation, such as cooking. Tackle dust generated by from DIY by containment, collecting at source or thorough vacuum cleaning.

For general dusting use a paper towel or soft cloth and the damp dusting method. To prevent marking, always use a soft brush attachment to vacuum clean adjacent surfaces. Special care: Avoid placing heavy objects on the surface for at least a week after painting.

Repair: Lightly rub down area to be repainted and apply a suitable primer to any exposed substrate. Repaint item “break to break” with one or two coats as required. In most cases, spot repairs will remain visible and produce an aesthetically unacceptable result.

Special care: Avoid placing heavy objects on the surface for at least a week after painting. Bookshelves and other frequent use surfaces may benefit from a very light application of beeswax polish to help prevent damage over the long term.

Repair: Lightly rub down area to be repainted and apply a suitable primer to any exposed substrate. Repaint item “break to break” with one or two coats as required. Stand alone items, such as window frames and doors, may require the whole item to be repainted to avoid slight colour differences between the existing finish and adjoining repair areas.
