Typical Leyland quality, as I had used before I had no hesitation in buying it again. Great coverage, low odour and great coverage.

So far very impressed. Used over 6 month ago and no sign of yellowing unlike oil based gloss. Easy to apply and very fast at drying. Only issue is you have to apply it fast, otherwise if you wait to long and go back over what you have previously painted while it is still drying, then it flips the pigment which gives it a different shine. However so far I love this Leyland water based gloss, and will not be going back to oil based again.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Amye NO NONSENSE!
Another brilliant paint. Used for a quick touch up job over a very bad satin paint from a big DIY store. Well worth every penny. I covers very well, didn't affect the paint below, created a smooth even finish and even with two quick coats looked professional. Very pleased, the price couldn't really be matched and the quality superior to other big brand names. Very low odor and minimal cleaning with everything washable with water. Brilliant!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by BurnhamBoy Worst 'paint' ever
Recently moved and have been buying Leyand Trade 10L emulsions by the bucket load so was expecting the same sort of quality.
Actually paid a professional painter to paint the woodwork around the stairs, skirting and door frames. Initially looked good but the slightest knock scratches off the paint. Few months on and hand rails look a mess.
Everything will have to be repainted which will be a nightmare due to all the scratches \ areas where it has peeled off.
When used with masking tape if allowed to dry half of the paint peels off with the tape.
Pro's: Will stay white longer than you oil based paints. Maybe useful for dado rails \ areas that will not have any contact. No smell and easy clean up.
Con's: Should not be classed as paint, never really hardens, slightest knock scratches the paint off. Needs multiple coats. Durability of jelly.
