After 3 weeks of doors and frames being painted its still tacky my doors are sticking when opened. Now its flaking off. So now i have to scrape it all off sand it again prime it again and find a better satinwood. Postponed my carpet being fitted twice because not finished… Read Full Review

“Quick Dry In Months”

Written on: 25/12/2016 by juKearns86 (1 review written)

Spent £60 or so plus 14hrs labour painting skirting & doors with Satinwood Quick Dry and it didnt after 6 weeks, tacky finish on some surfaces but less on others. Dulux technical help centre are aware of the problem and offered a solution, which worked. Didnt recompense the labour but how tragic that this ill formulated product is still available and will cause many hard working DIY punters pain and hard eanred sterling. Shocker… Read Full Review

“Choose Gloss”

Written on: 22/12/2016 by 255Palmer (1 review written)

I have unfortunately painted 7 brown doors in my house with Dulux Satinwood after priming & undercoating them. I left them to dry a week and since then paint has started to chip and flake off. Gutted as I have spent hours painting them. Now I can't find out anywhere if I can paint gloss over them or if I will have the same happen again with the Satinwood underneath! Gutting as Dulux is a trusted brand… Read Full Review

“Defective product”

Written on: 27/10/2016 by Gary_Smith (2 reviews written)

Applied paint yesterday. Usual procedure of fine sandpaper rubbing, cleaning with sugar soap solution, then wipe over with white spirit. Next day went to prepare for second coat. Paint has completely lifted from a properly prepared oil-based satinwood finish that was keyed with sandpaper and then chemically cleaned as described. Am coldly furious. Painting and decorating is a very very time consuming business. I now have to remove all the new paint by rubbing with a wet cloth and buy a decent… Read Full Review

“Dulux Satinwood Quickdry ( that does not )”

Written on: 24/10/2016 by Lucaj317 (1 review written)

After repainting all doors,frames and skirtings in Dulux Brilliant White Gloss, I had to start again due to severe yellowing after only 4 weeks. I chose Dulux White Satinwood and really wish I had NOT bothered.I used to trust the Dulux brand, but sadly NO more!!! It covers reasonably well but after 6 weeks its still not fully dry. So once again its a full repaint job before Christmas. I will NEVER use another Dulux product as it seems to me they have reduced the quality and kept the price… Read Full Review

After four coats (with runs) I cold still see through it, Will never ever buy this product again and I would probably think hard about any other Dulux product, people moan about Farrow and Ball paints not covering well, I am not even going to bother putting on a 5th coat, I will be using a simple white acrylic… Read Full Review

“Dreadful product that has wasted time and money”

Written on: 29/09/2016 by IAMAHOUSEHOLDER (1 review written)

Dulux Quickdry Satinwood!!!!!I feel this product should be withdrawn; in fact I feel it never should have made it to the market. I used it to overcoat fully prepared yellowing 20 year old white oil based paint. My experience is like many other's in that it remains soft/tacky - a bit like a contact adhesive - seems to be dry but will stick to things. I used it on side hung windows, left it for several days to cure/dry before closing the windows tight but even after about 2 months the paint… Read Full Review

Do not recommend this product at all… Read Full Review

“Dulux Satinwood Quick Dry”

Written on: 08/07/2016 by 47O'Neil (1 review written)

My surface was perfectly sheer and had one layer of Johnstone's undercoat. With a new brush, I applied this paint. Five minutes later, it started to break up and specks of water appeared on the surface. Then it began to go into streaks. The texture is strange. When you're applying it, it doesn't feel like the paint is sticking to the surface. I washed it all of with cold water. I will not buy Dulux again. … Read Full Review

I agree with the other reviews. The paint is tacky / rubbery and won't dry. I had remove it (like pulling bits of rubber off) and do the job again with proper paint. Doesn't even merit one star… Read Full Review

“I think others who have commentated have been a bit kind”

Written on: 10/05/2016 by Zayden146 (1 review written)

This paint, from a supposedly reputable manufacturer (Dulux) and retailer (B&Q) is an absolute disgrace. I don't know what the chemical composition is (some weird water based 'plastic' concoction) but I do know it doesn't dry (3 days on), 2 coats means 5 or 6 coats and it's impossible to get (or create)a decent surface finish.I have limited mobility so decorating is difficult even when everything goes according to plan. I'm now on day 6 for a task that should have taken 2 days maximum. I've… Read Full Review

“What a waste of time and money”

Written on: 30/04/2016

So pleased to read these reveiws and find out it's not something I'm doing wrong. I carefully degreased, sanded and primed twice a pine cupboard, sanding down and cleaning between each stage. I then applied 3 coats of Dulux quick dry satinwood (with a new brush)to get good enough coverage. After each coat I was left with a rough bobbly surface which I sanded down and cleaned dust away. I can't get anywhere near a satisfactory finish - it is rough with what looks like sand grains and has brush… Read Full Review

“Absolute rubbish”

Written on: 29/03/2016

Have used woodsheen for 25 years. Have never found the application so unsatisfatory before.I thought it was me but having used white and a mixed can the finish is blotchy and gritty. Very disappointing after all the work entailed. I am going to have to leave it at present but having ALWAYS used Dulux I won't be using it again. … Read Full Review

“Ruined my paintwork: Do not buy or you'll regret it!”

Written on: 14/02/2016

I bought his paint for some secondhand bedroom furniture. I found it OK on small pieces but on the dressing table top, which is bigger, it dried so quickly that I couldn't blend in the brush strokes and just got left with lumps and streaks where they overlapped. I assumed it was something I had done wrong and gave it a second, and third coat, sanding in between, but it just got worse. I decided the only way out of this was to remove the paint and start again but that proved almost… Read Full Review

Totally agree with this review. I have used Dulux paints for 40plus years but this product is just awful. I wish Dulux would bring back the original satin finish paint - Silthane Silk, for a long lasting, easy to use product

I found the same problem when painting a panelled door. It dries too quickly to lay-off. Even watched a Dulux video on Youtube which recommends wiping the surface with a damp cloth before painting, which I did but still got a lousy finished. Exchanged for an oil-based paint.

“Brilliant White mid sheen”

Written on: 08/02/2016 by Vaughan26 (1 review written)

This product doesn't even merit one star. Unable to avoid brush marks. Items placed on windowsills/ shelves adhere to finish and when removed pull paint away even after three weeks drying time in a centrally heated environment. This seems to be a recent problem as I have used similar Dulux products although this was a couple of years ago. Rubbing down is a nightmare as the abrasive tends to pull the paint off in lumps rather than producing a fine dust. The surfaces were given two coats of… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/12/2015 by ruPiper231 (1 review written)

We had a top decorator in as my hall stairs and landing is very awkward, and he made a wonderful job as expected, BUT after four weeks the satinwood is still sticky, the job looks amazing but the doors stick and as I put my hands on the bannister it is tacky,what can I do we can't even put further coats on as we can't sand down. I have always used Dulux but this ridiculous.I can't really rate this produce as its a failure. If anything can be done about it please advise… Read Full Review
