Rated 1 out of 5 by Useless! I bought this paint after seeing lots of great reviews. However, having bought 2 tubs whilst on offer I have been left disappointed. It may be great going over a white undercoat on a newly plastered ceiling. But you try just repaint img an older ceiling with it. It reminds me of the paint I usually use that is pink in the tub and dries white. Only this paint is white in the tub and dries see through! It won't cover a darker colour. It won't cover fly poo on the ceiling. It won't cover general scuffs and marks. My daughter had got some pencil on a white wall. I painted it with 4 coats and still you could see the pencil through the paint!! I would not recommend this if you want a good solid white finish. Great if you want your walls to look just like they were before you started!!! 20 Jun 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Consistent Use this paint for all new plaster work. Good coverage and easy to work with. Even better when on offer 18 Jun 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Ideal for mist coats If you have a large area of new plaster, this is the perfect product for you. 17 Jun 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality paint As I have to paint after a while I needed an advice for paint. Read reviews on the website and checked screwfix ones. I'm glad I've used this paint as it covers very good and drying extremely quickly. Very recommended 10 out of 10. 12 Jun 2016

Answer: 
Hello Bungler. The Leyland Trade Contact Matt Emulsion is a breatheable product, so is ideal for new plaster. However this product has a very low vinyl content - this means that it is not a particularly durable paint, it will mark and scuff very easily. After applying the Contract matt you must continue to allow the plaster to fully dry. Once this is done I would recommend using the Leyland Trade Vinyl Matt emulsion. This product is considered as 'wipeable'. because of the powdery nature of Contract Matt I would suggest thinning the 1t coat of Vinyl Matt with up to 10% clean water, this will allow the paint to be drawn into the Contract Matt, as opposed to just sitting on top of it. If you are painting areas where more durability is required (for example a kitchen or bathroom) I would suggest the Leyland Trade Acrylic Eggshell - which is considered as being 'scrubbable'. Again just ensure you thin the 1st coat with up to 10% water. Thanks

Chalky finish

Hi

I have applied this as a mist coat accordingto the instructions 9 paint to 1 water.

I have ended up with a chalky finish.

I now wish to paint the ceiling with vinyl matt and the walls with acrylic paint.

My concern is that the chalkiness of the mist coat will mean the top layers will not adhere properly.

Advise on the internet suggests sanding down the entire mist coat - which seems a bit over the top. Or somply using a cloth to wipe down the chalkiness.

Will a top coat be OK straight over the top?

The palster skim is 2 months old and totally dry.

Answer: 
Hello MrMo. You are correct in saying that contract will dry to a chalky finish. As you mentioned the chalkiness of contract paint can cause problems with adhesion with any subsequently applied topcoat. the process to get any topcoat to adhere properly is straightforward. I would give the surface a light sand and simply thin the 1st coat of your desired topcoat by 10% clean water. as contract paints are highly breathable, thinning the 1st coat of topcoat will allow the paint to be drawn into the contract paint and therefore provide a nice solid base ready for over decorating. once dry overcoat as required. Thanks
