Cellulose paint is the perfect choice for a range of surfaces. Cellulose is especially useful where faster drying time is necessary due to it's "air drying" nature.
Cellulose uses include:
- Car panels and bumpers
- Window & door frames
- Building panels
- Picture frames
- Shop Fronts
Moreover, pretty much most surfaces that you may come across with the correct preparation of the area.
Acrylic paint is available in both 1K (1 Pack) and 2K (2 Pack) and is tough wearing. The main advantage of using the 1K is a shorter drying time as opposed to the 2K, which will take around 24 hours to dry thoroughly.
Acrylic uses include:
- Window frames
- Car panels
- Roofing sheets
- Shop fronts
- Most other DIY and professional uses
Synthetic enamel is a very hard wearing paint option. Synthetic Enamel will provide a smooth finish in only 2/3 coats but will take considerably longer to dry.
Synthetic Enamel uses include:
- Push bikes
- Car panels
- Farm machinery
- Kitchen appliances
Please note: Synthetic enamel can only be supplied with a 1K (1 Pack).
