What is Johnstone's Trade Gloss Paint?

Johnstone's Trade Gloss is a high-quality range of gloss paints which can be used in interior and exterior paint jobs. All of the products, unless stated otherwise, you'll find to provide a high sheen finish.

Here is some idea of what the most popular products within the range can do for you.

Johnstone’s Gloss (All Colours)

The best selling paint in this section - a reliable and tough solvent-based gloss which provides ideal opacity. The paint can be mixed in any number of colours.

Johnstone’s Aqua Based Undercoat (White)

Gloss paints stick much better when an undercoat is applied, especially if painting outside. This water-based undercoat will help cover imperfections and give your gloss something good to bond to.

Johnstone’s Stormshield Flexible Gloss Black

Johnstone’s promises eight years of fantastic coverage from this gloss. If you're painting exterior surfaces you know will be exposed to the elements, this could work wonders for you. Also available in white.

Why use Johnstone's Trade Gloss Paint?

This gloss range provides fantastic value and excellent coverage. Depending on the paint you buy, you could be looking at up to 17m2 per litre. You can see how much coverage each paint has by clicking More Information on the product page.

What surfaces does Johnstone's Trade Gloss work best on?

Johnstone's Trade Gloss is versatile enough to work on both interior and exterior surfaces. Most people painting inside would opt for any of the Aqua System products as they have a quicker drying time and less of an odour, although it is common for someone to buy Aqua products to use inside and out.

Johnstone’s Trade Gloss works on:

  • Hardwood
  • Softwood
  • Timber
  • Window frames
  • Wood
  • Metal

If you're only working outside and want durable protection, stick with solvent-based paints.

What is the typical recoat time for Johnstone's Trade Gloss?


It will vary based on the product you buy, but most of the solvent-based paints take between 16-24 hours before you can apply a new coat. If you're using a water-based gloss, you'd be looking at anywhere between 4-8 hours recoat time.

What colours do Johnstone's Professional Gloss Paints come in?

You'll see products listed as black or brilliant white. Any products you see on this page with a colour wheel are Johnstone’s Gloss products we can premix to any colour within the Johnstone’s range you like, although please note that any paint mixed to order cannot be refunded or exchanged.

Is Johnstone's Trade Gloss oil or water-based?

You can choose from either an oil or water-based paint. Most of the range is oil-based, so you would expect a slightly longer drying time & for the paint to be cleaned off brushes with some white spirit after you're done.

If you're looking for a water-based trade gloss, keep an eye out for any products that are "Johnstone's Aqua" as these are water-based glosses.
