Crown Trade Clean Extreme Stain Resistant Matt For high traffic areas

Description:

Crown Trade Clean Extreme Stain Resistant Matt For high traffic areas such as hallways and corridors you need a paint that can be repeatedly cleaned without losing its ‘just painted’ appeal. That’s why Crown has developed its Clean Extreme Stain Resistant Scrubbable Matt – a true flat matt that stays matt even after rigorous cleaning. In fact, it has an impressive durability level of 10,000 scrubs and has been independently tested to ISO 11998 Class 1 scrub rating for guaranteed results.

As well as providing extra peace of mind on jobs where ongoing maintenance will put the paint finish to the test, the water-based Clean Extreme Stain Resistant Scrubbable Matt also offers all the benefits of being low odour, quick drying and available in hundreds of different colour options.

 

Application:

I tend to use class 1 Matt emulsion in high traffic area’s and never had a problem with it. For this review I painted a hall, stairs and landing that I had previously stripped and plaster primed 2 coats.

In the past, Crown Stain Resistant Clean Extreme Matt has been poor opacity with white. However, Crown identified the problem and improved the formula to compensate. This covered a base white in two coats of clean extreme which is impressive for a durable matt. The paint flowed well and didn’t pull, but I always cut it in and go around with a 4 inch roller.

The viscosity is just right too, so no need to water down. I did a big HSL and 5 ltr was plenty.

 

Cost:

Well it will all depends on your discount as each decorator is different, but it’s about the same price as Dulux diamond and Johnstone’s perfect white for me.

 

Pros:

Good scrubbable paint. matt finish Available in almost any colour.

 

Rivals;

Johnstone’s perfect white, Dulux Diamond Matt, Optiva 5, Isomat, Caparol, B&Q durable Matt

 

Summary:

I think every manufacturer is doing a version of a class 1 scrubbable matt nowadays. Not all though do have a Matt finish as advertised. Some leave a mark when wiped too. Some are cheaper than others too but it’s good to have choices. Crown clean extreme is a good paint. It sits about the middle regarding price.
