“Deluxe satinwood a nightmare paint”

Written on: 02/09/2017 by Ada315 (1 review written)

I painted 13 doors and frames with dulux satinwood which has been a complete disaster as several weeks after applying the plant is still tacky to the touch everywhere and already starting to look messy in spite of my extremely time consuming preparation I originally used this make of paint several years ago and had no problems at all but I now have to strip it all down and repaint which will be a costly and time consuming job which I could do without. Unless I have got a dud batch this… Read Full Review

“I wish I had read these reviews prior to using this...”

Written on: 30/08/2017 by 92Crowley (1 review written)

I used this to paint all internal doors, frames and skirting boards on a newly renovated house. I'm a perfectionist and like the new white finish without the shine that gloss gives. One year on, and all wood feels tacky and are magnets for dust which once it settles, is impossible to wipe off as it somehow sinks into the paint. Door frames are filthy from where 12-months of touching have left fingerprints and marks. Notches from the wood are coming through and look like horrible dirty… Read Full Review

“Worse paint ever”

Written on: 16/07/2017 by zabut (1 review written)

I unfortunately, did not read on here first. I painted my hall, stairs and landing with quick dry satinwood. I have used this type before but never again. The bannister particularly is terrible, it is peeling off with a consistency of PVA glue or nail varnish after you put remover on it. How can Dulux still be able to sell this product. on my door frame I can use my nail and scrap off the paint. So disappointed and upset with all the time and effort put in to now have to repeat this… Read Full Review

“Not 'quick dry'...more like 'never dry'!”

Written on: 01/04/2017 by Aspect710 (1 review written)

We had used Dulux 'satinwood' for years but went for the quick dry last year when we decorated the whole house prior to my daughter's wedding(photographs had to look good!)...removed 13 doors and all sanded down by orbital sander and by hand + door frames, skirting boards and window sills. That was June/July 2016...some doors are still 'tacky'...ornaments stuck to window sills...a lot of effort for little results. The doors covered well and I was surprised how easy the paint went on(doors have… Read Full Review

“Worse Paint Ever”

Written on: 02/03/2017 by CristinaCarroll (1 review written)

I feel really upset today - I have spent ages over the last couple of weeks sanding new wooden doors down, filling in holes, applying 2 coats of primer - Dulux, sanding between each coat and then applying 2 coats of Dulux quick dry satinwood, only to find the finish is absolutely terrible. This is the WORSE paint I have EVER used - now I'm going to have to sand the whole lot off and start again - Dulux needs to get their act together, I have wasted so much time and effort… Read Full Review

Hi..I too have bad experiences with this paint. We had used Dulux 'satinwood' many times before as we preferred the finish but last year we bought several tins of 'quick dry' as I had 13 doors to do + windowsills, door frames and skirting boards before my daughter's wedding. I removed every door, rubbed each one down to ensure a good 'key' which took me weeks to do. That was June/July 2016...some doors are still 'tacky'!!!!...window sills are shocking with ornaments stuck and lifting the paint...I will most certainly NOT be using this again...I cannot bring myself to decorating the full house again less than a year later...as you say...a waste of time and effort!!

“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

“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

“Dreadful product”

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
