Sanderson Paint - An Introduction to Colour

Sanderson’s f paint finishes have characteristics that make them ideal for use on different surfaces. For best results, always use a paint designed for the surface you are decorating.

ACTIVE EMULSION
The new 'Active Emulsion' paint is a high performance product and a technically superior emulsion, suitable for interior use on walls and woodwork. Highly durable and washable, this new finish is ideal for use in high traffic areas such as corridors, kitchens and playrooms. With only a 6% sheen level, it achieves a desirable matt appearance whilst maintaining a smooth finish, achieving beautiful results.

MATT EMULSION
A water based emulsion that dries to an exceptionally matt finish, emphasising the deep pigments in each colour. The matt finish and durability of this paint makes it ideal for interior walls and ceilings, leaving a gently spongeable surface. It can be used in bathrooms and kitchens but only if the room is very well ventilated and the painted wall does not come into direct contact with water.

WATER BASED EGGSHELL
Hardwearing and washable water based paint suitable for interior walls, ceilings, woodwork, radiators and metalwork. Acrylic eggshell provides a low sheen finish that makes it perfect for kitchens, bathrooms and conservatories. Also suitable for use on woodwork and metals (primed).

OIL BASED EGGSHELL
Traditional oil based paint giving a low sheen finish resistant to steam and condensation in kitchens, bathrooms and conservatories, this durable paint is ideal for interior woodwork and metalwork including doors, window frames, skirting boards and radiators. Also suitable for use on exterior woodwork and metals (primed).

For further guidance on preparation and application see the ‘Advice’ page.

ACTIVE EMULSION AND MATT EMULSION
Cleaning: For light soiling on smooth surfaces use a diluted lukewarm solution of domestic washing up liquid and a clean sponge or lint free cloth. Ensure sponge or cloth is well wetted (but not dripping), dab the affected area and repeat as required. Avoid circular cleaning motion as this may polish up the surface. For textured walls, a cloth should be used rather than a sponge to avoid the formation of hard to remove bits due to sponge degradation.

Keep your home well ventilated during activities likely to contribute to oil and grease accumulation, such as cooking.

Tackle dust generated from DIY by containment, collecting at source or thorough vacuum cleaning.

To prevent marking, always use a soft brush attachment to vacuum clean adjacent surfaces.

Repair: Apply a thinned down primer coat to any bare porous surface. Repaint wall section “break to break” for best results. In most cases, spot repairs will remain visible and produce an aesthetically unacceptable result.

ACRYLIC EGGSHELL
Cleaning: For light soiling on smooth surfaces use a diluted lukewarm solution of domestic washing up liquid and a clean sponge or lint free cloth. Ensure sponge or cloth is well wetted (but not dripping), dab the affected area and repeat as required.

Ensure radiators are at room temperature before attempting to clean using the procedure above. Cleaning hot radiators may result in localised or uneven polishing of the surface and should be avoided wherever possible.

To help prevent general build up, keep your home well ventilated during activities likely to contribute to oil and grease accumulation, such as cooking. Tackle dust generated by from DIY by containment, collecting at source or thorough vacuum cleaning.

For general dusting use a paper towel or soft cloth and the damp dusting method. To prevent marking, always use a soft brush attachment to vacuum clean adjacent surfaces. Special care: Avoid placing heavy objects on the surface for at least a week after painting.

Repair: Lightly rub down area to be repainted and apply a suitable primer to any exposed substrate. Repaint item “break to break” with one or two coats as required. In most cases, spot repairs will remain visible and produce an aesthetically unacceptable result.

Special care: Avoid placing heavy objects on the surface for at least a week after painting. Bookshelves and other frequent use surfaces may benefit from a very light application of beeswax polish to help prevent damage over the long term.

Repair: Lightly rub down area to be repainted and apply a suitable primer to any exposed substrate. Repaint item “break to break” with one or two coats as required. Stand alone items, such as window frames and doors, may require the whole item to be repainted to avoid slight colour differences between the existing finish and adjoining repair areas. In most cases, spot repairs will remain visible and produce an aesthetically unacceptable result
