Exceptional Result from Taubmans Tradex Interior Low Sheen Paint
After getting disappointing results using another famous brand paint, I decided to give Taubmans a go.
I'm glad I did because the finished result is excellent. It was easy to apply, dried fairly quickly and looks
great. I bought 10lt from Bunnings and will buy some more to complete the rest of the house.
Purchased in at Bunnings Warehouse Retail Stores for $123.
Had excellent results on our former more modern House although after selling that and purchasing a 1960 House which hasn't a straight wall or Ceiling in the house this Ceiling paint hides the defects perfectly, Impressed
Purchased in at Bunnings Warehouse for $101.
Great coverage excellent paint
Have been using other paint brands and had trouble with painting the house again then i came upon reviews for the Tradex Brand absolutely Brilliant ,great coverage hides imperfections sand easily why buy the premium brands when this is just brilliant cannot recommend enough Micheal. ceiling and walls are both brilliant
Purchased in for $800.
Great value. I'll buy this Tradex from now on.
As a full-time Handyman/renovator, I have always used Taubmans more expensive paints (in the fancy looking metal tins), but gave the Tradex variant a try today.
I found that it is just as good, for a much better price.
It was easy to apply, and hardly had any odor (low VOC).
I have yet to try the Tradex wall paint, but will be trialing it in the next few days.
From now on, I'll be using the Tradex variant, unless the customer requests a specific brand.
Purchased in at Bunnings Warehouse for $128.
Simple to use and great even coverage
Tradex ceiling paint is great for hiding blemishes and uneven surfaces on ceiling. I always get it tinted with lexicon white to make it a slightly darker tint for better coverage and to hide the joint lines. The paint dries evenly and only needs two coats for a flat Matt finish. Third Reno project and the results speak for itself. Excellent product.
I'd definitely recommend it and use it again.
Taubmans Tradex Professional Ceiling Flat White 15L.
I've used this product in the past and have just used it again for our new house with the same great result.
I applied the first coat in one direction and the second coat perpendicular to the first. It covered all the lines, putty and marks by the second coat.
I was using the 270mm Monarch Razorback rollers with 12mm nap and found that the paint stuck so well I barely needed the drop cloths and the finish was seamless.
I'd definitely recommend it and use it again.
value, good finish
I use this paint in one coat wonders and three coat jobs, good spread, does not show roller lines, I always get good finish. I do like appling it on the thick side the first coat or one coat wonders, as it bit more hard wearing that way. Low odour. Hardly splatters. Washes out rollers and brushes easily.
Good paint even better price!
I've used many tins of Taubmans paint, ranging from their Tradex to LivingProof Silk, Endure, Water based enamel gloss and Performance Plus products. I'm a big fan of their paints overall and have painted my house inside and out with Taubmans paint.
Big fan of the oil based undercoat and ceiling white and have never had problems with them. The undercoat adheres well to nearly anything, sands really smoothly. The ceiling white covers very well for the price, so no complaints from me. No need to spend the extra bucks on shiny labels and adver...tising. I'd still recommend a higher end product for top coating though, as they tend to be easier to apply (less chance of stuffing up) and added benefits like good washability and anti-mould/fungal properties. Only complaint is the metal lid is very flimsy and difficult to open if the paint is left to dry on the rim. You may end up destroying the lid completely.
Found the coverage OK but realized after painting one room that it finished off better if you painted one way in the room for the first coat, then cross ways the room for the second. When light hits the room in the morning you can see roller marks in the first room. The second there is not a problem. Went on well with no drips to worry about. A good result overall.
Bright white colour looks very fresh and clean, staying that way for several years now. The cost was compariable with other leading ceiling paints. Easy to clean brushes.
Application issues, but once sorted went on like a dream.
Questions & Answers
I've used Taubmans Tradex Ceiling Paint on a few jobs and I've found that no matter how wet the roller is, the paint dries rough in some areas. I've had to sand down the first coat to take the rough edge off to get a better finish on the final coat. I've used different type/quality/nap rollers but to no avail. Any ideas?
Perhaps a better quality roller cover may help?
I stopped using the "Paint Partner" brand of roller cover, and started using the "Unipro" brand roller covers, and my paint jobs are look better now.
For a uniform finish, 3 things need to be uniform. ...The surface. Sand any raised imperfections to provide a smooth base. The paint. Make sure its thoroughly stirred to the bottom of the can for 5 minutes. The application process. Use a good quality roller cover intended for water based ceiling paint. The manufacturer of the roller cover will print on the package its intended purpose. Make sure the paint is applied and laid off to a uniform finish before it dries. Taubmans Team
Thank you for your response but all these points are implied. Done Done Done to no avail. Cheers
How to thin paint for spray gun
Would Taubmans Tradex be the best choice for a ceiling?
that depends on the amount that you have to spend on paint. But whatever you do, don't use spring paint for anything ever. Taubman's is a good brand and anything from them will be good. If you have the money for it, go for it.
