Exceptional Result from Taubmans Tradex Interior Low Sheen Paint

published

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.

Great value. I'll buy this Tradex from now on.

published

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

published

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

published

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.

Roller marks

published

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

Mal G.
Mal G.asked

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.

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.
