“Dries too fast”

Written on: 11/01/2022 by braunton1 (1 review written)

Have used Dulux for years,but for the first time have bought some brilliant white Satinwood to paint seven doors.Contrary to everybody elses comments it dried within twenty minutes.It was virtually dry coming off the brush.The problem being that it was impossible to keep a wet edge hence I have got streaks even though I have now put on two coats.I am now going to have to revert in putting a coat of gloss on which was not the object.Certainly won't be buying a waterbased paint again especially… Read Full Review

“Absolutely rubbish ”

Written on: 13/10/2021 by Shazza56 (1 review written)

Bought the satinwood trade, prepped all the woodwork and undercoated, then two coats of paint. Left for two weeks to ensure it was dry. Placed a lightweight ornament on windowsill,paint came off. Bought the same in diamond,TERRIBLE to apply n get a good finish. Wasted £95 and had to redo all paintwork. NOT HAPPY!!!… Read Full Review

“Still wet after 27 hours! ”

Written on: 23/08/2018 by Angie1990 (1 review written)

My partner tried the water based satinwood first and thought the prep must not have been good enough as it peeled, so we tried the oil based BIG MISTAKE!!! After 27 hours all of the doors and woodwork are still wet! BOTH products are absolutely awful! My partner took the second lot (oil based) back and was given a replacement and overheard one of the trade counter assistants saying the was a problem with the production of this product. If it is not dry by tomorrow morning, the whole lot will be… Read Full Review

“Quick dry......won't dry.....”

Written on: 30/06/2018 by Kevin.pudd (1 review written)

Had this paint for about a year,and until reading the review's here thought I was doing something wrong. My wife today used the paint and expected it to be dry by now, but after 10 hours it is still tacky. Earlier this year I painted the window sills in the kitchen and every time something is placed on the surface it sticks to it.. If Dulux have had a problem with this paint, why is it still for sale and why hasn't it been recalled... Methinks a communication to BBC watchdog… Read Full Review

“absolutely shocking paint!”

Written on: 04/03/2018 by maxxonmann (1 review written)

If only I'd read the other reviews! Foolishly I assumed that being a Dulux product it would be half decent! When you've painted 54 spindles and, 12 doors and miles of 8" skirting to get a poor finish you ought to be entitled to some compensation! Let's face it - this is on a par with emulsion [and a cheap one at that] in terms of finish and durability. Should have stuck with good old oil based, and now find myself using Leyland trade eggshell and doing the job twice. Ironically, I sell some AK… Read Full Review

“Very poor quality”

Written on: 08/02/2018 by Neulie (1 review written)

I have tried to use Dulux Trade Satinwood on a door. I first applied Dulux undercoat, waited for it to dry, sanded it with 180 grit, then vacuumed and wiped with a rag moistened with alcohol. It's difficult to assess the covering power because the undercoat was white. The paint was difficult to apply because it lacked any flow ability after the pass of the brush, it seems to be too thick and tears the underlying coat. However the main problems were that the paint never really dried and the… Read Full Review

“Waste of time & money”

Written on: 29/01/2018 by Cahillmb379 (1 review written)

I am at my wits end wondering why my Dulux Trade Oil Based Satinwood won't dry. Its now been on over 24hrs & its still wet to touch. I have used this product many times before & had really good results. I did try the water based version once & found it to be terrible so decided to go back to the oil based one. It is a expensive paint costing over £45 for 2.5l. But its the time its taken me to apply & what I'm going to do with it if it won't dry. It was extremely runny when applying & is really… Read Full Review

“Avoid!!”

Written on: 28/01/2018 by Scorpio73z (1 review written)

Used this on my banisters (with a primer / undercoat) all properly prepped beforehand. 3 months later it still feels sticky, the banisters look filthy as when I try to clean them the paint just rubs off or looks grimy. The paint has completely peeled off in places. I'm furious, as I'd already sanded and glossed it beforehand and wasn't happy as the gloss went yellow within days. So I went to all the trouble of sanding back the gloss, and using primer for the satinwood, only for it to look a… Read Full Review

“Absolute Rubbish”

Written on: 02/01/2018 by Edwardsnq331 (1 review written)

If I could give zero stars I would. I used this product because it was said to stay white but mined didn’t stay on the woodwork long enough to lose its colour. It peels off even after proper sanding and undercoating. Avoid this stuff it is ABSOLUTE RUBBISH!… Read Full Review

“Dont Bother”

Written on: 29/12/2017 by Davidelner (1 review written)

This product let me down badly, poor finish, in places it remained tacky for weeks and when dry can be damaged by the slightest nock. I had to removed it from a 2m window sill because of the poor finish, the process took 10 minutes, it literally peels off! Having now searched the net for user reviews I find that my experience is shared by many… Read Full Review

“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

Written on: 01/04/2017

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!!
