Johnstone’s Trade has launched Perfect Matt, an innovative new paint that has been designed to create a flawless, flat matt finish in any colour, on every project.
The increasing number of spotlights and large windows is creating more critical lighting within buildings, which can highlight visible application marks on interior surfaces, particularly in darker colours. This, in turn, can affect the appearance of the colour and have a negative impact on the overall aesthetic of the room.
In a recent survey hosted by Johnstone’s Trade, 70 per cent of painting contractors said that visible application marks are a problem, with 88 per cent agreeing that extra time and effort needs to be put into jobs in order to avoid visible application marks.
To address this, Johnstone’s Trade has developed the innovative Perfect Matt with Smooth Layer technology, which means the paint has a balanced ratio of binding agent, additives and pigments to deliver a flawless, flat matt finish every time – even in the darkest colours.
The unique technology eliminates the impact of visible application marks, such as streaks and overlapping, and can also be used to re-touch and spot repair effortlessly. Any patches simply dry to blend in flawlessly with the surrounding surface, removing the need to repaint entire areas.
Perfect Matt can also be used to re-touch and spot repair effortlessly, ensuring any spoiled areas dry to blend in flawlessly with the surrounding surface. With 77 per cent of painting contractors agreeing they invest additional time and effort into making sure the finish on a job is smooth and consistent, it’s important they have a solution that will ensure they can achieve the flawless finish that is expected.
Now, thanks to Perfect Matt, they no longer need to repaint entire areas and can just re-touch or spot repair the small area required. It also achieves the same flat matt finish when applied to high-absorbency surfaces or over filler marks, with no need for a primer.
David Baines, Technical Specification Manager Key Accounts at Johnstone’s Trade, said: “In a bid to improve health and wellbeing of occupants, architects are increasingly designing buildings that feature large windows to maximise the amount of natural light that floods inside. However, while providing necessary light, these large windows can often make paint application marks visible – especially on dark colours. With such a lot of effort going into building design, it’s important to do the project justice by avoiding such imperfections and making sure the finish is impeccable.
“Now, by specifying Perfect Matt and its Smooth Layer technology, the industry can remain confident that a flawless finish will be achieved even in areas with vast amounts of critical lighting and on the darkest colour shades.”
Johnstone’s Trade Perfect Matt is available in a range of Voice of Colour shades, and can be purchased in 2.5L, 5L and 10L sizes. The new paint also has a class 1 scrub rating.
