Bedec multi surface paint. This mini review is in case someone benefits in the future.

The paint was used on three radiators (one previously painted by hand but well yellowed, and two painted at least twice by hand the last coat being a gray emulsion). It was also used on some skirting which was made of tiles also painted with gray emulsion.

The positives.
- Grips well (took a few days to come off my hands ::b )
- It flows extremely well
- you need to try hard and put too much to get it to run and it refuses to run
- good open time.

The negatives.
- It has very little opacity ... it is like painting with milk

In conclusion.
It took 3 coats for the yellow radiator, 4 coats for the gray radiators and then one decided to bubble badly (not the paint's fault as one of the previous coats has had enough) ... they all could do with more paint but enough is enough. It struggles to cover water pipes (crown trade magnolia emulsion covers them quicker). 3 Coats on skirting and I gave up and used a 4th coat of Crown satin. It really needs a 5th coat but by knees complain.

All in all, it might be quicker and cheaper to use a proprietary high grip primer and the top coat of your choice.

Thanks for that review. :thumbright:

I've never been a fan of MSP as it's one of the most transparent coatings out there. Also found it was a bit soft for a finish in all honesty.

Might have the odd use, but a bit limited I suspect.

As you can guess I did not try scratching it, the last thing I would want to do. It looks like I would have needed 5 coats for the curved floor tiles making up a skirting. It might be better in black for painting plastic drain pipes to match other pipes. I also used it on a wooden skirting previously painted gloss beige/light brown(?), 3 coats too and not much depth in what it produced either.

In retrospect (I am wise after the event) I should have gone over all the gray soft sheen emulsion with a big load of undercoat.

the satin seems to have an opacity problem in white. the white gloss covers far better!
