no-nonsense metal paint
06-Oct-2012
By
, Gateshead, Tyneside.
"Normally would buy Hammerite for metalwork painting/repainting, but decided to try this brand which have never used before! Time will tell whether it will be resilient to our winters, but it was easy to apply, covered well, dried very quickly, and brushes just washed out with soapy water! no need for cellulose thinners with the associated disposal problems. I like it!!!"

Excellent & v easy to use
06-Sep-2011
By
, Stockport
"This is a water based paint which makes it FAR easier to use than the highly viscous Hammerite types. Although presumably no way near so good at filling/binding badly rusted & flaking surfaces, it produces an excellent tough, smooth finish over surface rust.
It survives well on narrowboat hulls !

"This paint was easy to apply and it is smooth. I have to do a second coat. I suppose only time will tell of it is durable. Also I think it is fantastic that I can just wash out the brush under the tap."

"I used this paint on my garage door. It is great value and has good coverage (better than other more expensive brands)
It did need two coats but i always paint two coats to get an even finish.

"Covers rusty metal well. It flats out brush marks to a fair level on a warm day, but doesn't have good adhesion to old paint - previous paint needs to be very well keyed or this will peel off."

Will require two coats
16-Apr-2012
By
, Reading
"Cheaper option to Hammerite and is water based. This means that brushes etc are much easier to clean.
I used it to paint a garage door which was previously red. Little bit of light sanding and off I went. The coverage is no where near as good as a solvent based paint and I found it required two coats. However, the paint dried extremely quickly and the fact that it was water based was a big bonus for me.
I did use a gloss roller and found this left small air bubbles in the finish. Not an issue for me but would be worth considering.

Black Metal Paint
17-Apr-2013
By
, High Wycombe
"would not recommend this paint as we used this paint on our gate posts we installed for a customer. We painted the post one afternoon weather being fine, the next morning when we turn up the paint had dried like crazy paving. We applied another 2 coats to try to paint over the cracks but this failed. This left us with no option but to rub down the post back to the undercoat and to start again."

Useless
15-Oct-2014
By
, London
"Carefully degreased newly made iron railings and applied three coats. Very poor finish and even worse adhesion to metal, might be better with a primer but advertised as not required. Wasted time applying and wasted more time stripping off. Very inadequate protection. Definitely not a substitute for Hammerite Smooth. An expensive mistake. Very unhappy."

Buy Hammerite instead
13-May-2014
By
, Lancaster
"I've got an older tin of this paint which is solvent based, much better than the new water based version.
Repainting all the stuff again with Hammerite, should've bought the proper paint first time!
False economy buying this stuff.
