Decorating Sundries

When decorating your home you naturally want to achieve the best look and finish possible. The quality of the paint and the skill of the person applying it are obviously important, but it is easy to overlook the fact that the quality of the paint brushes, roller sleeves, painters caulk, masking tape etc are equally important. 

We carry a broad range of decorating sundries that are suitable for the professional painter and DIYer alike.

You can browse our wide range of paint brushes, roller sleeves, fillers etc here.

Owatrol Oil Paint Conditioner  is a p aint conditioner and rust inhibitor Can be used alone or added to oil based paints, primers, varnishes and stains Used alone it provides a tough, flexible finish, driving out moisture and air Used alone: coverage 18m2/litre Owatrol Oil is versatile, highly penetrating air drying oil that can be used alone or added to paint. Used alone as a rust inhibitor it provides a tough, flexible finish, driving out excess moisture and air; displacing it from rusted metal, so stopping rust dead in its tracks. Used alone on porous wood surfaces it will saturate and protect the wood from damage caused by moisture and prevent paint from peeling. When added as a paint conditioner to any oil or alkyd based coatings it will give increased wet edge time, improved flow and greater adhesion. Unlike damaging thinners, it will maintain the inherent quality of the paint without affecting its appearance or drying times, allowing you to achieve a more professional finish. Using Owatrol Oil as a rust inhibitor Owatrol Oil penetrates through the rusted metal to the sound metal below, isolating it and protecting it from further rusting. Directly use on rusted surfaced – the penetrating oil drives out moisture and air and stabilises the metal to protect it from future damage. Using Owatrol Oil to aid adhesion A bonding film is left on all surfaces Owatrol Oil is used on which maintains the natural look of the surface but allows enhanced adhesion, making it perfect as a foundation for primers or finishing coats. It gives excellent adhesion including on galvanised steel, aluminium, zinc, wood and more. Paint can be applied directly to firm rust when Owatrol Oil is used and is heat resistant up to +175°C. Using Owatrol Oil as a paint conditioner Mix Owatrol Oil into oil-based paints as a paint conditioner to get several great benefits. Firstly, it gives the paint rust inhibiting properties and helps prevent rust on painted surfaces (even when rust is already present). Secondly, it also improves the flow and workability of the paint. This means that you can maintain the ‘wet edge’ for longer, reducing brush and roller marks. Finally, it gives the paint a better viscosity allowing painting work to be carried out in a more extreme cold, hot and windy conditions. Unlike damaging paint thinners it does all this without altering the inherent qualities or the finish of the paint. Please note that if you are looking for a product to give this effect but for water-based paints then please use  Floetrol  instead as it is designed for use in any water-based paint whereas Owatrol Oil is for use in oil-based paints. Using Owatrol Oil for wood impregnation When used on wood surfaces Owatrol Oil saturates the wood and protects it from damage caused by moisture. It also helps to prevent paint from peeling and protects metal parts such as hinges and latches from corrosion. Ideal Uses for Owatrol Oil Priming galvanised surfaces with no need for weathering or pickling Preventing further damage in heavily rusted surfaces Improving paint flow when working in cold environments Preventing peeling paint on wood surfaces Protecting metal part on wood surfaces like gates and window frames Assuring better adhesion of finishes
Owatrol E-B Mix In Bonder  is a high penetrating, stir-in paint additive for use in water-based masonry or interior paints. It will help alleviate peeling problems on all porous surfaces. Owatrol E-B is especially suitable for unstable, chalky and powdery surfaces, crumbling brickwork or render. Helps to alleviate peeling problems on sound but chalky, powdery or porous surfaces by stabilising the surface Provides a bonding primer and a first flat coat of masonry or interior paint in one Maximises adhesion between the first and second coats Improves the durability of the finish Eliminates the need for a separate stabilising solution so saves you time and money E-B acts as a stabiliser, penetrating deep into the surface to firmly bond the first coat of paint to the substrate. This, therefore, eliminates the need for primer. Owatrol E-B provides a bonding primer, stirs in easily, and does not alter the original colour of the paint. It offers a time-saving benefit by eliminating the need to separately prime. Why Should I Use Emulsa-Bond? E-B greatly speeds up and simplifies the painting process, especially on difficult substrates. Mixing it with the first coat ensures a strong, wear- and peel-resistant bond without the need to apply a separate primer and then allow it to dry before you begin painting the final colour. It is particularly useful for quick and effective painting of interior plaster, allowing the first coat of the final colour to also do the job of both primer and mist coat. E-B is also an extremely versatile product. It can be added to the first coat to replace a primer, but if for whatever reason you prefer a traditional, separate primer it can also be used for that. This product can bond paint to a wide range of surfaces including powdery, chalky, porous, or otherwise difficult surfaces. It can be used on plaster and masonry, wood, glass, plastic, and varnished surfaces. Ideal uses for Owatrol E-B Additive for waterbased paint and varnish. Use on all porous surfaces. Use as a primer or mixed with paint. E-B’s high solids content maintains the inherent characteristics of the paint, improves hiding power and increases coverage by up to 20%. Ensures an even coverage and maximum adhesion between the first and second coat of paint.
