Very disappointing results from Squirts spray
I bought 5 cans of White Knight (by Taubmanns) Squirts Satin Black to re-paint a piece of furniture that had been thoroughly prepped before painting.
The paint coverage was so patchy despite shaking the cans first and spraying in an even, methodical way ... and yes, I know to do several light coats rather than one heavy. I waited more than the suggested 1 hour time between coats. The satin paint reflected the light and therefore highlighted the uneven finish and the piece of furniture looked terrible. Back to Bunnings to buy the same brand ...but in Flat Black, hoping this would cover the patchy finish. Wrong. After waiting for the satin coats to thoroughly dry, I sprayed the piece again, lights coats each time, with Flat Black. There was minimal difference between the satin and flat finishes, I expected flat to cover the uneven satin finish and have almost nil light reflection but it didn't and now the piece still looks patchy and will need hours more work to sand back and re-paint (using another brand) not to mention the cost of the cans.
white knight squirts clear gloss
After spraying it a couple of times the nozzle started to spit even when i wasn't holding it down and then it all just started to bubble out the top of the can thought hey maybe its just a bad can you get them occasionally so i tried another and the same thing happened ended up spitting all over my paint work making a mess, it seems to be a problem with the new nozzle design though i only had problems with the clear coat the paint seemed ok, won't be buying this clear coat again.
Worst paint on the market! By far!
At $22 per tin for the white knight super gold paint you expect quality. Unfortunately, this is as far from quality as you could get.
It starts of with the most amazing finish but that's the last time it is good.
After 7 days the paint is still too soft to touch and leaves fingerprints. But that's over shadowed by the total mottled and faded colour it has changed to. After several different primer methods and even trying glass bead blasting prep methods it was still just as bad.
After nearly 20 years of spray painting as a career i have ...
Terrible Spray Paint!! Will never use again.
I used white knights squirts paint & prime gloss spray paint to paint a plastic car part back in August last year and the part is still wet half way through January! The part was prepped,primed and cleaned throughly yet the paint has still not dryed. You get what you pay for. Will never use this cheap paint ever again!! Do not recommend using unless you don’t care about what the finished product will look like.
I was just contacting as i recently purchased some of your paint from Bunnings to restore my bathtub. I followed the directions exactly, however, after applying the 2nd coat as directed, and waiting the recommended waiting time, the paint started to bubble and crack and everything that touched it leaves a mark. Bath bombs, which are made for baths, stain the paint, if you have dirty hands, this will also stain the paint. Our bath is looking a lot worse than what it did before. I have co tagged Bunnings and they redirected me to you guys for my refund. I am extremely disappointed with the results. If someone could please contact me asap in regards to a refund so I can fix up this mess, that would be much appreciated. Thank you.
Pot belly black should be re named
Your pot belly black should be re named to medium heat resistant black paint. Purchased a can for (you wouldn't guess) a pot belly fire and guess what it followed the directions to T and it bubbled and peeled. So your "pot belly black" is i suffiecient for pot belly fires. I wonder how many other ppl have fallen for this false advertising.
Flakey, came off within a month
Used ultrapave quick dry acrylic 2 coats over old concrete steps, followed all advice on tin. Within a month, paint developed a dry flakey appearance and detached from surface. Called tech support but put on hold for excessive time and their voicemail is full.
Appalling Labelling of product!
White Knight Rust Guard, Quick Dry Topcoat Advanced Enamel is WATER BASED!!!
Only discoverable in the small area list on the tin under "Clean Up" would anyone realise this is a WATER BASED paint.
Nowhere on the front of the tin, or anywhere in the "tick list" does it state the paint is indeed water based.
Money wasted on disgraceful paint, unnecessary thinners and a ruined costly paint spray gun!!!
Total #@*% tile paint !!!!
The paint store here recommended the tile paint and was total disaster. Followed the instructions to a T and have had years of painting experience, so knew what I was doing. Went back to the store and the owner said someone from White Knight paints would contact me asap. Waited and rang the owner again and then waited. Two weeks later( and not a word from White Knight,) the store owner gave me some other paint free and am about to scrape off the White knight and use this one. Waste of money and time. Thanks a bunch White Knight !!
Not a good product
Followed instructions to a T... Used a pure bristle brush as recommended. After about a minute of getting started I was finding the bristles from the brush in the fresh enamel. I found it impossible to avoid leaving trenches in the finish and if you tried to use a thicker coat it left runs. Also used the recommended cleaner ($30.00) only to have the brush I used left stiff as a board. I contacted the tech support on the box to be met with an aggressive attitude that no responsibility for a faulty product was taken as well as no compensation.
I'm disappointed that you changed your satin black in the squirts range. It was a great finish and a great paint to spray but now it's too glossy and comes out of the can under more pressure. I wish I could find some of your old stock to continue spraying the chassis on my cars that I clean up. It was a really good product!!
So disappointed - followed the instructions to a T - exact sand paper with an orbital sander and the tiles were still glossy so I was worried but still followed all the instructions - paint peeled after 1 day with a knock now I throw 3 days of work and a few hundred dollars down the drain and pay some professions.
