Problems with Armstead Trade Contract Matt
by Terry Easton
So, I painted out a loft conversion recently, using Armstead contract matt in white.
I sprayed the mist coat, then cut and rolled a following two coats. The ceiling was very large and dropped to the floor.
It flashed like nothing I’d ever seen before!! Around down lights and anywhere that received a strongest light.
I told the customer I was not happy with the finish. They said they will live with it.
So, I went to Dulux today and they as good as said “it isn’t very good quality. It flashes like crazy, even when you keep a wet edge.” I ended up having to buy some supermatt
Did I miss the point somewhere?????
Try Tikkurila Anti reflex.
It’s a contract matt! Basically, it’s a primer for walls and ceilings before you put a decent coat of paint on. Its Not a finish coat paint
You are never going to get a great finish with Contract Matt, I only use Contract for mist coating.
I Only use for misting
I won’t touch it
I only use Anti Reflex 2 now.
Tikkurila Anti-reflex 2 all day long. I don’t use anything else, it’s the best ceiling paint
Tikkurila Super white or Anti-Reflex
It’s cheap contract matt what did you expect 😂 mist coat only when using that stuff
Sprays well if its thinned
Tikkurila Anti reflex definitely
It’s got a slight sheen to it but remember all paint flashes when the light is bellowing down the wall. Why give yourself the head ache of telling the customer you weren’t happy?
Tikkurila Anti Reflex 2. quality gear and doesn’t flash either
Armstead is crap and goes yellow!!!
