“Paint now withdrawn, I hope!”

Written on: 20/11/2012

I can't add much to the comments of other reviewers but I have noticed this paint seems to have disappeared from the B&Q website so hopefully it's been withdrawn. It does say on the tin that the recoat time is 16 hours but I took that to mean it would be dry well before then. In fact, after 24 hours it's finally dry enough to handle. The long drying time means more time for dust and fluff to attach to the paint and prevents me from sanding down in other areas. I used this paint for… Read Full Review

“AVOID!”

Written on: 14/10/2012 by TheMagicRat (1 review written)

Don't waste your money and this will certainly cost you LOTS of time. It's like painting with treacle and it 'pulls' if you have to come back to a section that you painted just minutes before, like round a window in a front door. Small pin holes appeared within minutes and it took ages to become touch dry. I took it back for a refund and had to wait seven days before I could even lightly flat it. I switched to Dulux Non Drip Gloss and this goes on a treat. Just a gentle pull that flattens and… Read Full Review

“The Paint That Never Dries”

Written on: 06/03/2012 by cheesefreak (2 reviews written)

Wish I'd read these reviews before using this paint. Still not dry and its 16 hrs later! The coverage is poor. I will have to rub down and start again with a well-known brand A waste of time and money. Does not cover in one coat and takes 24hrs+ to dry. Does not do what it says on the tin… Read Full Review

“If you want paint that doesn't dry then this is for you.”

Written on: 20/09/2011 by Dustymin (1 review written)

We bought this paint to brighten up our windows. I removed all the opening sashes and painted them first then did the fixed glazing. The paint was still not dry 12 hours later and I found myself fitting the opening sashes while still tacky at 10pm. Plus our cat had decided to leave it's paw prints on the cill. I'd forgotten how bad this paint was until I painted a door yesterday which is still not dry enough to re-hang. Awful paint - any that remains will be skipped to prevent this… Read Full Review

“Do not waste your money on this paint ”

Written on: 11/09/2011 by PeterFrench (1 review written)

White one coat Gloss. Terrible paint. 6 Hours on and its still wet to touch. Its been warm today, windows are open and there's plenty of breeze. But still wet. It also needs more than one coat. I applied it to window cills that already had a white matt basecoat and you can still see the imperfections through it. … Read Full Review

“Wish I had read the reviews first. I painted windows...”

Written on: 13/04/2011

Wish I had read the reviews first. I painted windows and frames inside and out yesterday on a perfect day, sunny but windy as well. I took the upstairs windows out to paint and unfortunately after 13 hours drying time they were still wet (not tacky even) to the touch. So last night we had to leave all the downstairs back windows open and tape a bin bag on the bathroom and just suffer with no window in the back bedroom. Its now 34 hours since I finished painting and whilst some areas have formed… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/04/2011

THIS IS THE WORST PAINT THAT I HAVE EVER USED BAR NONE. 2 DAYS AFTER APPLICATION IT IS STILL WET. THE FOLLOWING DAY THE RAIN CAME AND RUINED THE FINISH. HOPEFULLY, BY THE END OF THE SUMMER IT WILL BE DRY ENOUGH TO SAND AND RE-PAINT. EVENTUALLY GOT A REFUND AFTER THREATENING TO INVOLVE TRADING STANDARDS. I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT THEY CAN SELL THIS STUFF… Read Full Review

“I thought being one coat might save me some time and I...”

Written on: 26/05/2009

I thought being one coat might save me some time and I liked the bright red colour. It said 16 hours on the tin and we are at the end of May so the mild air should've helped speed up the drying time.
One coat eh? More like several! Does NOT do exactly what is says on the tin, is almost translucent and takes an age to dry. I've had to shut the door I was painting (because it is in a town centre) while it's still wet, I thought it would at least be touch dry after a few hours - but it still has… Read Full Review

Batesrich's Response to 197626_geoff39's Review

Written on: 30/01/2007

I am not surprised mate - I have never rated B & Q for paint. They just try to do it too cheaply, and it doesn't work. I expect they sell plenty to inexperienced DIYers though, so why should they bother? I have been using Sadolin, which seems pretty good stuff, but I am about to try Holkam linseed oil paint, which is dead old fashioned, but that kind of paint used to stay on better years ago.
