I am also interested in your products, although as Tim says at the moment I can't seem to be able to justify the price over my current supplier.

Although I am generally happy my current paint, the top coat, although initially a good colour match, quickly looses its lusture and actually appears to change colour, yellows becoming greener over time, no good for touching in! My question is, is your polyurethane product able to retain the initial gloss and colour in line with a manufacturers factory coating?

Do you suplly thinners for the paint, also is it suitable for use over a Zinc Phosphate undercoat?

Do you do a satin black?

Thanks

James

Hi Please see response to Traxcavator,should help answer.

To be honest I couldn't give a definitive answer to the symptoms described..sounds like pigment issues if the colours alter,but an enamel paint shouldn't do because of its hard wax like finish.

Yes the paint dries the same colour and no never any issues with ageing .. the colour is the colour,for now and forever.

You get value for money mind as you can thin it out considerably,again some other paints your on the limit when you get the tin.

The cheaper the paint the more thinners ..its a route to be avoided.

Satin Black isn't something we do,just the manufacturer specific paints

All the best!

Cheers

We never had a problem with Caterpillar's own paint, when it was lead based, but the stuff they are selling now, go's pink as it ages. And the scrapers we run are outside all year round and tend to get very green with algie growth...which we never got with the lead based.

How colourfast is yours and does it repel algie growth?
