Classic Example of an Aus Product that moved to China
This brand went bad years ago and deserve to be exposed for what they did. They changed their spray paint formula when they moved the production to China and hoped we wouldn't notice. They also changed the nozzle design at the same time. The only thing they didn't change is the label and the price you pay for the can. - Except for the tiny print down the bottom where it used to say made in Australia
- Now says made in China. This is misleading at best. I have old cans and newer cans to prove this fact. They have been ripping us off for years n...
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
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.
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.
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!!
White Knight Tub & Basin paint
After completing the re-coating of tub tried to clean brushes in turps as recommended. Did NOT clean off and brushes hardened with paint still on it. Good quality brushes used - $30. Had to throw out in garbage bin.
Kitchen laminated clear top.
Painted the laminate with white knight and had sand it back a few times. Kept having lines. Eventually got less lines. Then put the clear top on and what a mess. White lines and small white salt marks on the bench top. Should have just ripped the old tops off and replaced them. What a waste of money and time. Not happy.
Protective coat doesn't look good when dried
I used all white knight paint for painting my laminate bench tops step by step and was very happy until we had to put on the final hardening sealer. When this dried it left some areas with line marks and ruined the whole over all look and hard work we had done to transform it. Not happy with this product at all.
White Tile paint turn Yellow after 6 months.
Used Tile paint white bathroom looked fantastic for only 6 months after this time it had yellowed [Dark Cream}. I followed every instruction to the letter, i am just disappointed nowhere on the tin or web site they say WHITE will yellow over time.
Blobs Of Enamel Bubbles - Rubbish
I used this stuff (gloss white) because it was an exact white colour I was after. I clean all surfaces with acetone, sanded and cleaned again. I shook the can for a least 5 minutes walking around shaking and shaking up the can.
When I starting spraying, I noticed Blobs of enamel bubbles spraying into the paint. I had 3 cans of the stuff so I tried all of them - all three cans all did the same thing. I had to let the paint dry and spent hours and hours sanding the crap off. The paint has a nice gloss but the enamel bubbles destroys the paint job.
Will never use again. WHITES if you read this and continue to ignore us you will lose a ton of business - fix the issue guys.
can't find SDS for Rust Guard Aerosols
I am searching for an MSDS or SDS for the White Knight Rust Guard Grey Primer Aerosol and the Epoxy Enamel Aerosol. The only Rust Guard SDSs available on the site are for liquid paints. The risks associated with aerosol paints are different to those for liquid and they have different shipping names and UN numbers. Please provide MSDS for all your products.
White Knight Tub & Basin Paint
On the Clean Up instructions you are told you can clean your brushes with mineral turps. Big mistake. You cannot. Use only the White Knight Rust Guard Solvent. I am not happy because I ruined three great new brushes through this discovery.
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
