Anybody tried all the various scrubbable/wipeable matt emulsions?

Reason I ask is just doing my hall in crown trade clean extreme matt and it's by no means matt. To my eyes it has far too much sheen.

I have Johnstone's in the kitchen (think it's called cleanable matt) and that looks much more matt but I didn't go for that again as the colour match was nothing like what I asked for.

I believe dulux now do a scrubbable flat matt so could try that or maybe valspar.

Anyone with a definitive answer on the sheen levels would be greatly appreciated

If the customer is prepared to pay, I use johnstones trade vinyl matt followed by two coats of polyvine flat matt decorator's varnish.

It really is bullet proof gear.

Maybe the best option, as all the durable matt finishes have an ever so slight sheen to them.

I found Johnstones Endura & Little Greene Intelligent Matt to be the best of the bunch. Intelligent Matt is a superb paint but at a price. So much depends on the light in a room with these paints I find.

Johnstone' s cleanable matt has a sheen level of around 5%, does the polyvine create issues when you come to overcoating?

No, because it's just a colourless waterbased coating.
