What is Polycell?
Known primarily for Polyfilla, Polycell is a rare instance of a well-known paint brand which doesn’t sell paint. They instead develop products which help you get a surface ready to paint on. Polyfilla is a tremendous product, and there’s a reason why it is so highly regarded amongst those in the trades; it never does a bad job. Whether you’re working in exact areas and need Trade Decorators Caulk, or are going DIY at home and using ready mixed Polyfilla for the first time, their products provide a no-hassle solution to prep.
Traditionally their products are used on plaster, wood and tiles, with a focus on helping you avoid any tricky situation when you get to work. For example, Polycell Sealant Remover is designed to remove traces of old sealant without harming surfaces.
We also don’t stock many wallpaper products on site, but Polycell Wallpaper Stripper works fantastically if you’re looking to remove wallpaper and paint a wall without any noticeable plaster damage (something steam stripping tends to create).
We recommend using Polycell because of how versatile their fillers have become. It wasn’t so long ago that someone prepping a wall had to mix a filer themselves and hope the solution was just the right consistency for the task at hand. Nowadays, we have the luxury of pre-mixed, quick-drying and even expanding Foam Polyfilla available to get areas prepped in no time at all. With such a diverse range, you’d expect there to be at least some nagging areas when it comes to filling or plastering when the sealant has dried in, but you’d be surprised just how reactive their fillers are to sanding down exactly where you need them to be without any problems.
If you’re interested in other calking products, take a look at the full range here. We also have filler and stabiliser from top brands like Timbabuild, Red Devil and Bartoline.
Getting the Area Prepped
A rushed paint job never turns out the way you’d like. That’s why it is essential to have your area set-up, tidy and ready for anything from a small speck of paint to accidental spillage.
Make sure you grab the essentials you need from the cleaning & prep range, where you’ll get dust sheets, masking tape and those other overlooked items which help ensure a tidy and safe job is carried out.
And for anyone working on walls which previously had damp patches, Polycell One Coat Damp Seal can help seal in those problem areas, so your paint job doesn’t show signs of intrusion down the line.
