Been using this stuff recently. Bought by customer so no issues as its what they wanted. It goes on nicely, good open time, opacity and flow, but how are Crown getting away with selling this stuff as satin?? Its at best an eggshell finish and nowhere near the 40% sheen level I'd expect from a satin finish.

Be warned. :thumbleft:

Don't get me wrong, it's cracking stuff, but it's by far the flattest satin I've ever encountered.

I used this for the first time recently in place of their oil based stuff. Really liked it and found cleaning up afterwards much easier. Only slight concern I had was I didn't feel the final finish felt as hard wearing as oil based stuff but suppose only time will tell, probably too early to say at this point.

Does this satin require an undercoat? I'm after a satin finish which hopefully I could just give 2 coats onto well prepared trim that previously had eggshell/satin on. Thanks

just put 2 coats straight on.But preparation is the key. make sure you wash down all the woodwork with Meths before you apply the paint.

Thanks for the quick reply. Will get some tomorrow. Normally used oil based Leyland's satinwood in the past but looking for something quicker drying without undeviating first and making it a 3 coat finish. Got a couple of rooms to do and thinking about doing it in reverse, ceilings and woodwork finished then mask up and 2 coat the walls.

just make sure that you leave it a few days before you apply the masking tape to the woodwork as could pull of the satinwood.
