Teknos Pro5 Review – Durable Matt Emulsion

Updated Jul 11, 2022 | Posted Apr 14, 2022 | Paints, Product Review | 2 comments

Teknos pro5 is a low sheen, durable matt emulsion developed by Teknos. Used on interior walls and ceilings, this “Alkyd-reinforced” paint is available online in white, or basically any tinted colour. The drying time of Teknos Pro5 is an hour, which is very good by anyone’s standards. Normally you need to wait 3 – 4 hours between coats. Curing time is around 4 weeks.

This paint boasts a class 1 wet scrub rating, making it perfect for high-traffic areas, or kitchens and bathrooms. You can use this paint on concrete, plaster, filler, brick and various building boards; however, you may first need to apply the appropriate primer. You can see the full data sheet here.


My Teknos Pro5 Review


Opacity of this product is awesome!! You can almost achieve a colour change on any surface with one coat, which is unreal for any emulsion. Ease of use is ok(ish), but it can drag slightly and pull on itself. Cutting in a full room, then rolling, rather than working on one wall at a time, is the easiest way to overcome this, as the cutting in will be dry before you start your rolling.


It is difficult to achieve a good finish with some durable matt emulsions. Flashing, picture-framing, and a high sheen level are commonplace. This really isn’t the case with Teknos Pro5, which is phenomenal!!

You are left with a silky-smooth surface with no flashing at all. There is a lovely depth of colour which is unrivalled when you compare it to other brands. You can even touch this paint up afterwards, which is refreshing.

The durability of Teknos Pro5 is equally impressive. No “buffing up” or damage caused when you wipe the painted surface with a wet cloth. In fact, you need to work hard if you want to damage it at all, so you know it’s going to stand up to a little bit of steam when you’re cooking your Sunday lunch!!


Honest Conclusion


All said, this is a premium quality product. The price at TopDec works out at £9.30 per litre in a tinted colour if you buy it by the 9L bucket, and they can match to any colour from any brand!! Just to put that into context, Dulux Diamond matt, which is a lower quality product, works out at roughly £13.60 per litre in a tinted colour!

So, by going with Teknos, you’re paying less and getting a far superior paint product. It’s a no-brainer really!!

    Brilliant review! Anything I could think of was covered so I already know what to expect. Good price, also fast drying so we can get more coats on in a day! It’s durable and covers!

    Thank you Mike!

    Good review Mike. So many products coming onto the market now, it’s starting to get confusing!! It says in your review that it’s “alkyd reinforced” does this make it similar to Johnnies aqua gloss? Just means more hassle cleaning up your gear. Cheers!
