WRX Trade Satinwood Review - a fully water-based satin for interior woodwork. This will never yellow

WRX Trade Satinwood Review

By Mike Gregory

 

This is a fully water-based acrylic satinwood and is suitable for interior woodwork. As it contains no alkyd at all, it will never discolour or turn yellow. Available in white and in 2.5 or 5L tins, either directly from WRX by clicking here, or TopDec Decorating supplies here.

 

WRX Trade Satinwood is touch dry after an hour and recoat after 6 hours, meaning it is possible to apply more than one coat in a day. As with all products of this type, it will carry on curing for a week or so after you’ve applied the paint. This is my WRX Trade Satinwood review, I hope you enjoy it.

 

Application

 

No need to dilute this product as it is already loose. Just make sure you give it a good stir before you start. You’ll find WRX Trade Satinwood flies on!! Very quick and easy to apply. Another bonus is you don’t get pesky ninja runs (if you’re used to water-based paints you’ll understand). The only downside is the paint is a little tricky to cut in with, but this is true of almost all products of this type.

 

The Performance and Overall Finish

 

I can honestly say WRX Trade Satinwood is one of the best water-based satins I have ever used. You can apply it directly to old oil-based gloss (with proper prep) and it will pass a scratch test within a couple of hours. Opacity is alright for a water-based satin. Two coats is all you normally need over previously painted surfaces. Just get it on nice and thick. The product doesn’t sag or run too much so you can get away with being generous. It goes for miles too! Another plus point is the finish; The colour is a proper brilliant white which looks awesome!!

 

Another plus point of WRX satinwood is it is tough!! I mean very tough!! You can have every confidence the finish will stand up to scuff marks and constant cleaning.
