Practical guide to water based paints

ICI Paints AkzoNobel has launched a brand new practical guide and DVD ‘Getting the Best Out of Water-Based Paints’, ensuring professional painters and decorators have all they need to make the switch to water-based trim coatings.

The handy, no-nonsense guide to using water-based coatings comprises a leaflet and accompanying DVD with tips and how-to’s, from which brush type is best to use to how to abrade a surface and advice on tool cleaning. The new guide gives professional appliers all the information they need to use the new generation of paints effectively in the transition from traditional solvent-based trim paints to water-borne alternatives.

To develop the guide, ICI Paints AkzoNobel has worked with its elite network of professional appliers, who have shared their experience of using water-based coatings on a daily basis. Using the feedback and technical advice from the people that know best, the manual is a ‘must have’ for every painting professional making the switch.
