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.

Roller marks


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

if i am painting an existing ceiling in decent condition will the ceiling paint cover in one coat?

1 answer

One coat should be okay if you roll it extra thick. But i usually do 2 coats to get a smooth even coverage.

I’ve painted some exterior render with oil based gloss instead of acrylic. Looks awlful. Other than sanding, what can I do to go back to non gloss?

1 answer

Just réprime it. But make sure the primer paint has a blocker so the oil based paint doesn't bleed/come through the new paint.



best oil based under coat to use before Taubmans water based enamel ?
I used some quick dry (Taubmans) and seriously couldn't get coverage and the coats looked really scratchy

1 answer

Do not know but I would never use this again. Did not give a good finish. Using another paint for ceiling now (Brinley) I think and also a low sheen/satin finish, much better results. Good luck
