Paint doesn’t stick or seal.
Worst paint I have ever used. I have spray painted MANY pieces of furniture over the years and this has been the worst experience. My husband and I brought a cot (wood) we loved for a reasonable amount as we had a small budget, I was gifted a voucher and spent nearly $150 worth of Rose GoldDueamax spray. Prepped as the can required. 2 months on and as soon as you touch the cot it’s on your fingers. We are now $300 at a loss with no cot and no funds to buy another. What can be done about this?
Wanted to refinish some plastic drawer pulls. The lid for Bright Gold is bright gold but the spray paint itself looks copper in colour. Picture below. Very disappointed especially for this price point.
Furnace Bright gold be taken Off shelves
I reasonly used duramax range metal primer and bright gold finish and clear coat. First attemt with the bright gold the finish look good, 3day drying touch leave finger prints, and smudge into a dull gold wherever it been touch.
So I decide to give a protected layer of clear coat duramax, my hold project just react and gave a crocodile skin texture, uneven surface, and paint waves.
Strip the paint off did it again, this time didn’t react the same, but made the gold so dull like brown after the clear coat, no shine to the paint at all.
Purchased in March 2019 at Brown plains bunning for $80.00.
This range of paints is variable in quality, metallic finishes problematic, the epoxy gloss is expen
Ok, so I used Dulux Duramax paint to give my bicycle frame a fresh look. I followed the instructions, and sprayed in a dedicated spraying facility. I also stripped my frame back to bare metal, and then used nothing but Duramax products because I know that some paints don't work well with others. Even so, here's what I've learned the hard way.
1. The Duramax metal primer is ok on my aluminium frame... although other reviewers have reported that they had issues on whatever they were painting.
2. Depending on the paint colour, the paints need ...
Can react to some paints.
I used this as a top coat over "Wattyl kill rust" on some metal motorbike parts, only to be disappointed with it bubbling and reacting to the kill rust as an undercoat.. Also sprayed onto existing paint on the bike without using an undercoat an it once again bubbled up and looked terrible. Disappointing results..
Bought 3 bottles of this spray paint, was told it was the best, worst thing I have bought in my entire life followed the instructions, sanded perfectly, used the right primer, waited more than enough drying time, & once the piece of furniture I spray painted is touched it rubs the bright gold away leaving it smudged and a different colour, waste of money & I have used several different brands in gold & have not had this problem ever, disgusting hundreds of dollars wasted including other materials & the piece or furniture, not happy.
Dissappointed with inconsistant finish and instructions.
Trying to get an even finish on "satin black" is made difficult by nozzle spread which cannot be varied like some cheaper products (which I shall be buying to get a decent job). Watched promo instruction video and that was not convincing on ease of coverage. Final result borders between gloss and matt, even after several attempts.
Awsome color brightness, shame poor quality paint
I purchased the rose copper and the color is amazing but unfortunatley that is where it stops . The paint is rubbish, it shows all finger prints and finger prints seem to burn into it . it also rubs off easily and dissolves if exposed to the weakest of spirit based chemicals, really dissapointing for a very expensive product.
Totally misleading lid on can
Like most of these spray cans, here is another manufacturer playing dirty games with their packaging for what I can only describe as a way to trick people into buying their products.
The lid on the spray can is a beautiful clean chrome. When you spray your project at home it will look like a dull silver at best. Why these companies continue to miss lead their customers I will never know. Why would you not just spray the lid with the actual product so people can make the correct decision when buying your crap!

I am using Dulux Duramax Gold Bright Finish Spray Paint! Can I use polythrane to protect the paint??
Thank you for the question. Our Dulux Duramax range of Bright Finish spray paints do not require any additional topcoat or clear to be applied on top. Please feel free to contact our Help&Advice team on 13 25 25 if you have any further questions. The Dulux team.
Hi Duramax team. I am currently working with your products and wanted to add something here as I have been reading all of the reviews and the information you just provided on this question doesn't gel with what I am hearing from others. I think personally that you should be recommending adding a top clear coat to protect the underlying paint job.
I am hearing "it smudges" and "it retains fingerprints".....if this is the case, all could be resolved by adding a Duramax clear coat, either gloss or satin depending on the job.
Anyway, that's what I'll be doing.
All the best.
