Product Details

Product Information

This Classic red gloss wood & metal paint has been specially designed to give a durable and long-lasting finish on wood & metal. Simply apply with a brush and leave for 2-4 hours to dry - a great way to give the surfaces additional protection. Covers up to 7.5 m² per litre on average.

Features and Benefits

At B&Q we want you to be satisfied with your colour selection. Not all monitors will display colours the same and paint tins may not show the same colour as your walls do in natural light. We therefore recommend you order a tester pot online or pop in store to pick one up so you are sure that this is the right colour for you.

  • Control air pollutants by choosing products with lower solvent levels

How to prepare walls for painting

How to prepare walls for painting

While it can be tempting to get painting as soon as possible when you want to decorate a room, it’s worth taking the time to make sure your room and surfaces are best prepared before you begin. Getting the preparation right is crucial to achieving the perfect finish. It’ll also help to keep things neater and cleaner, and reduce the need for additional coats of paint. No paint can completely cover dirty or uneven surfaces, so tackling this at the start of the project avoids the need for extra work later on.

In this guide we’ll walk you through the most important steps to take, and show you how to;

  • Empty your room ready for decorating, and protect fixtures and fittings you aren't painting
  • Clean your walls to help paint adhere
  • Fill holes and cracks and smooth your walls for the best possible finish
  • Prime stained surfaces or those which have not been painted before

Once you've completed these tasks you should have a smooth, even surface ready to be painted.

Buyer's guide to primers

If you're painting on bare wood, plaster or metal surfaces, you'll get a better result if you use a primer first. It provides a surface which the paint can bond to and stops the paint being absorbed. Find out more what you need and for what surface.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor coverage Compared to other exterior paints I have experience of, I found this was not particularly easy to apply and it gave poor coverage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dont waste your money This paint is the worst ever, bad coverage, drys patchy and blotchy even after 3 coats, had to rub it down and go and buy some different paint, which was fine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A paint to avoid This paint was glutinous and sticky and just wouldn't spread evenly no matter how it was brushed. I had to remove it all and start again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Love the colour. Hate the paint The colour is great but the paint is less than useless. On the 4th coat and it still hasn't eliminated the pencil lines I used to mark the door! Dries within the specified time but remains soft for days.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible I have purchased dozens of different paints over the years and this paint was the worst covering one I have ever had the misfortune of using.I had to use the whole tin to paint 1 front door! I will never buy this make of paint again and I advise anyone to avoid wasting their money on this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Buy After three coats, cutting in around glazing and door ironmongery each time, the primed areas below still grin through strongly. I would not recommend this product and seems to me unfit for its purpose.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from review compliance My previous review was not excepted for this paint as it did not meet guidelines. Having reviewed the guidelines with some ideas of things you might want to state about a product, things like, ( features and benefits) THERE AREN'T ANY.!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worse than useless Brush on thin and it is translucent. Brush on thicker and it skins and drags off in lumps when re-brushed.
