Armstead Trade Gloss Paint
What Armstead Trade Gloss Paint should I get?
There are a few different products in the range, and if you're unfamiliar with gloss paint, you might not know which is best suited to your upcoming paint job. Here is some more information on each gloss paint currently in stock.
Tinted gloss is becoming very popular, and this paint can be mixed in a wide range of neutrals, creams, pastels etc. With it being solvent-based, it also dries quickly.
The alkyd binder in this gloss helps with letting tinted colours settle better on the surface. While it can take up to 24 hours for a recoat, if you want a tinted finish on an exterior surface or metal, it will work in your favour.
Reliable when you want to avoid yellowing, this is a water-based gloss that dries in no time and could see you applying the second coat in around four hours.
A great gloss paint for outside window frames, doors, and fences. Can really work in your favour around trims where brush flow is an issue.
Armstead High Gloss White & Brilliant White
What’s whiter than white? Brilliant White. Both varieties look great after just one coat, but if you’re striving for a decent white gloss on exterior surfaces, the brilliant white will have a deeper sheen.
Why use Armstead Trade Gloss Paint?
You’re getting the best of both worlds with this range, as the gloss is just as good to use on interior as well as exterior surfaces.

If you’re opting for Quick-Dry products, they are water-based and will have a recoat time somewhere between 4 and 6 hours. If you choose any of the High Gloss paints, you’ll be touch dry in about 6 hours, but you will need to leave it anywhere from 16 to 24 hours before applying a second coat.
Do Armstead Trade Gloss Paints only come in tinted colours?
We know that Armstead does a fantastic job with tinted gloss finishes, but we also understand that many customers will be looking for deeper colours from their gloss. We recommend visiting our main gloss paint section, where you’ll find a dynamic range of colour choices from brands like Crown Trade & Dulux Trade.
Do I need to prime before using Armstead Gloss?
As with any paint job, we believe that applying primer & undercoat on the surface after cleaning is necessary. It will help your paint get the desired look and, when done correctly, you will never need to worry about yellowing or discolouration. You’re also always best to stick with the same brand when using paint, so take a look at the Armstead undercoats currently available here.
