I was a little skeptical using tile paint paint my bath wall tiles. I went ahead with it and never look back. Sure! Hard work, patience and following the instructions to a tee made tge tiles look as ifthey are realtiles.
I recommend the White Night tile paint
I wouldn't recommend this paint for metal. I was determined to use it as it has such a wide colour range and wanted to paint my trailer a deep mountain wine red. Possibly the easily tintable aspect is what reduces it's quality. I've spent A LOT of money and time on metal primers, etch primers and top coats both the water based quick dry and the oil based advanced enamel. The etch primer was the most difficult component and while I found the etch primer itself adhered well to the galvanized steel areas of my trailer the top coat would not bond w...ith it. I had endless redos and eventually had to apply topcoat 5mins after the etch primer to get a bond(technique recommended online by car painters). Even that technique wasn't always foolproof I found. Some areas inside the trailer that were galvanized steel I ended up using the regular metal primer(after sanding)..and that actually worked. However the paint in general still seems very very prone to scuffing and even scratching off at the smallest of bumps or knocks...I'm still waiting to see if it eventually hardens....it has been 4 to 6weeks already. This is a very summarized version of my experience with this paint. I did paint one section earlier with Killrust Wattyl paint and that paint was profoundly amazing in comparison. Went on like a dream. Hardened straight away. Set like concrete. All with a roller and brush. But was a dark red more resembling brown. Killrust is tintable to a much smaller range of colours. If you don't want a fancy colour I would use that paint any day over Rustguard. I don't know if the spray paints or if using a spraypaint technique would yield different results with Rustguard as my experience was all roll on and brush. I tried every recommended technique and called the company and spoke to many different people but in the end I still found for a big job this paint to be poor quality. Love the colour. But that's it
Bath tub resurfacing - DON'T USE IT
I'm a fastidious DIY and prepared the bathtub perfectly. Applied the 'TUB & BASIN' two pack epoxy as instructed. Looked fantastic for 24 hrs!. Then noticed a yellowing starting at one end. Within a week, there was dirty yellow looking patches covering the bath. I rang White Knight technical dept and they said that it was quite common for stain to bleed through and there was nothing I could do about it. I asked about re-coating again and they said it would keep bleeding through.
Now need to get it stripped away and done professionally with industrial grade stuff.
White Night 'Tub & Bath' was a complete waste of money and effort.
Dreadful result with Glow in the Dark 300 as not one speck of after dark glow.
Bought a Glow in the Dark Green 300 spray can, costing a whopping $36.50 at Bunnings. DREADFUL!!!! does not glow in the dark one bit, and I used the whole can on 6 concrete feet stepping stones to have safety. Absolute rubbish. Whereas they were lovely silver/white feet they are now mottled kaki with not a miniscule of glow in the dark whatsoever. Anyone else bought this rubbish?.
Purchased 2 spray cans of " woodland grey" to match colour bond fence. Sprayed it on and it was cream. 200kms from store to change it. Lid and name on can was woodland grey but not the paint. Couldn't complete job until I was able to get to store. Not impressed.
White Knight - A bad experience
Purchased garage floor paint on the advice of the White Knight Technical Department, painted the floor, left the cars off the surface for 4 days, left the garage doors open for the those days and first time I put they cars in (cold tyres) the paint came off where the tyres were. Contacted White Knight and told me I should have sanded back the 17 year old slab before painting (floor was thoroughly washed/cleaned before painting) .I asked for a WK representative to come out, but virtually said it was my problem and have heard nothing more. Bad product, bad customer service/advice with no accountability.
Rubbish paint peels and loses colour
Wasted a lot of money and time paint peels and loses whiteness started going yellow now have to strip it again and find alternative super dissatisfied and loss of time I’ll never get back
Great customer service from White Knight.
I had an issue with Ultra Pave Quick Dry Formula over just 1 section of previously painted concrete driveway. I had used the same acrylic paint (20L), both undercover and outside area, without any issue (2 coats). However just one section of added driveway, which has been poured years ago but after the main driveway was done, for some reason, rejected the water base paint and flaked & pealed off overnight on just this one area. I went back to Bunnings, spoke to the paint seller and also was lucky enough met the White Knight representative Heath.... All three of us agreed for me to re-paint in enamel Heavy Duty Formula which I intend to do but, to my surprise, I was re-funded for my unused 10L acrylic tin in exchange for a 10L enamel tin and an extra 10L gratis from White Knight. WELL DONE - GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE. We will see if enamel does a better job. Also got great advice from John from their Customer Care Centre.
Grout pen = RUBBISH!
I purchased a white knight grout pen and it only lasted for around seven 30cm tiles before it broke! I was then basically told that is acceptable for the pen.. waste of money! Don’t buy this product! Poor customer service!
Rust guard primer
Found it nice to apply and a great finish when dry. Cant find anything to fault to be honest. My product had the red pigment. I’d rate it 5 stars, but only time will tell how good the rust protection is. No complaints
Whit Knight Super chrome - not even close.
I purchased a new grille for my car and new badge, cost $120, can of super chrome $24.41, value of finished product $00.00, what garbage super chrome is and it came recommended from a Bunnings team member(must get kick backs).
The colour is so far removed from chrome it might as well be pink.
All l got was a silver colour and a wrecked grille, absolutely disgraceful that they can sell this product and l am $144.41 cents down the drain.
Never will l buy a white knight product again. I am only rating it 1 star as l have to or the review does not go through and the option of a negative star was not there. Oh and forgot to mention the $24 on primer as well so $168. Down the toilet.
I request advice regarding the use of White Knight product Ultra Pave Heavy Duty paint on a timber floor on my veranda. I am anxious to get this advice promptly, as I wish to complete this task on 23 December 2018. I raised a query earlier today (16/12/2018) but still await a response.
I have two bathrooms (This helps so you can allow paint to harden) Completed the ensuite back in January 2018. All wall tiles in white, border tile in blue/black and floor in black with light texture. They do not recommend painting floor tiles but mine are still holding strong, no flacking, no discolouration, even in the shower. PROCESS - removed all the silicone, wiped down every surface with the tile and laminate cleaner, used a damp cloth (lint free) and dried with a clean tea towel. Allowed to dry properly for about half an hour. Any areas ...were grout was damaged fixed up, any really deep gaps in corner wall joins filled with paint over silicone to bring level with the tiles (need to leave a few hours before sanding over). Lightly sanded all tiles in a circular motion with 240 grit wet & dry sand paper - (dry sand), vacummed all tiles and wiped down again with a damp cloth to remove any left over dust, dried and left again for about half hour while taping up all areas of wall, shower screen and tap ware. Painted on first coat of primer cutting in all edges and grout with a brush then using a 100mm Micro Fibre Roller with 4mm Nap approximately 3 tiles at a time, putting enough on to lightly cover the colour (don’t over load the roller with paint) as you finish each section without applying more paint run the roller same direction top to bottom of tile, this helps prevent streaking. I did 2 coats of primer to assist in covering colour of tiles and 2 coats of finish colour. Sanded both lots of primer with 240 grit wet and dry between primer coats and 600 grit wet and dry between first and final coat of tile paint (Gloss Finish). Each coat was applied 24hrs apart and after final coat applied allowed 14 days before siliconing all required areas. Just recently removed the silicone on the vanity tiles to have granite overlays put on and electrician drag a ladder across the floor to install a heat lamp, amazed paint did not come off, no chipping or scratches. ADVICE -My only advice is good preparation, allow paint to harden before siliconing and reframe from thinning out the paint (primer - water based, tile or laminate - oil based) just stir it well otherwise it recks the integrity of the finished application. If you want to make your boarder tiles blingy I added glitter to the final application and used the gloss acrylic sealer in the spray can (only on the border tile). Completed the main bathroom same process about 2 months ago. Love them both.
Spray cans are horrible. They leak very bad under the nozzle.
I bought 2 cans from Bunnings. The first one (orange) leaked from under the nozzle down onto my hand, the outside of the can, on my job and on the floor. I will have to sand my job and start again as it had big blobs all over it. I thought I had got a bad can and decided to try the other can (green) on other parts of my job. Unfortunately it was exactly the same thing and I now have to sand that part of the job and start again. Its the worst spray paint I have ever used.
Amazing! So impressed!!
I am a painter and decorator and our family recently moved into a very dated rental property. Fortunately for us our landlords hired me to paint the entire house. The whole house was brought from the Nineties beige and yellow into whites and greys of 2018. They even replaces all of the drilling floral curtains to nice neautral colours.
But we had one problem, the kitchen.
The cabinets were yellow and the bench top was maroon. I couldn’t bare the thought of living with it, especially while the rest of the house looked so modern. I went to al...
Questions & Answers
I have used White Knight Laminate on my bench before, I sanded it, sprayed with Laminate cleaner and low and behold it is still tacky after 2.5 days, some parts of it is dry but other not. Why is this so and what must I do to correct it. I would appreciate your answer urgently.
OK, so I used White Knight Hi-Temp spray paint on the bowl of a Weber-style barbecue. (After several years of use, the original black paint had gone soft and gooey). I carefully prepped the bowl by scraping/sanding/grinding off the old (failed) paint to shiny bare metal, and roughed it up with emery paper. I sprayed multiple coats, waiting the required time between each coat. A week later we used the barby to cook lamb chops. Afterwards when I cleaned it, I found that the new paint had gone soft and sticky, just like the original paint had done..
What did do that was wrong?
Is gloss bergundy still available in spray can
