About Technical Paint Services

Technical Paint Services is an independent paint manufacturer and supplier, offering a range of specialist paints and coatings, trade paints and a technical paint advice service. Please call or email with details of your enquiry or order. When using EMAIL, PLEASE provide as much information as possible with regard to the surface to be painted, such as new or old, previously treated or bare, the environment (such as a humid pool area or a floor with high levels of traffic/footfall), etc. Thank you. 

Please note we are not decorating contractors and do not provide a painting/application service.

We offer a full, free advisory service to help you before you paint. Just EMAIL US with a broad outline of your project, ideally with photos to show the condition of the substrate. We will assess your situation and give you our recommendations along with a painting specification and timings to help achieve your end result. If the condition of the substrate is too damaged or outside of our product range, then we will advise you accordingly.

We offer a comprehensive range of paints and performance coatings for most situations and surfaces. Some popular types are in stock and others are made to order within a few working days. With improved resources, we are now able to offer a faster turnaround on our most popular products.

We are pleased to receive enquiries of a technical nature. Call us on 01202 295570 or EMAIL US with your enquiry. We have a vast range of mainstream and specialist products suitable for industrial, commercial, coastal, rural or city environments. We also have over 75 years of expertise to call upon so we rarely come across a requirement we haven’t seen before and we can supply both water based and solvent based systems for professional and trade use.

Popular, specialist paints include Swimming Pool Paint, Swimming Pool Hall & Enclosure Paint, Squash Court Paint and Tennis Court Paint which are available in the majority of colours and finishes across the BS4800 and RAL colour ranges. There is a demand from decorators for alternatives to lead-based paints which we are pleased to manufacture and continue to offer as excellent options to lead products; please see our A49 Exterior Range. Our latest PRICE LIST is available to DOWNLOAD.

IT’S SUMMER, IT’S HOT...and it’s finally here!!! When painting externally, beware of heavy thunder storms washing away your newly-applied paint, particularly water-based types. It is however, the ideal time to undertake those larger external jobs such as walls, roofs, industrial plant and farm buildings; it’s a great time to dry out any damp surfaces before painting.

As the seasons change, it is important that you are aware of the optimum weather and temperature conditions for maximising your painting opportunities. Summer is upon us and what a great time for those projects such as painting swimming pools, pool houses, ponds, tennis courts and roofs. Get painting!

In the current heat all paints will dry faster...some will dry too fast so beware. Avoid painting in strong, direct sunlight, particularly on to hot metal or tarmac surfaces. You should start in the early morning, possibly in the evening and ideally in the shade. This should help to avoid ‘mud cracking’, where the surface dries too fast and the paint beneath not at all, thus resembling dried mud! When applying, don’t over thin as the paint is already thinner when warm and will set too quickly, losing its “wet edge” prematurely.

If using paints in communal situations or areas of high use, remember water-based coatings don’t smell as much as solvent types. We do however have a comprehensive range of both.

Always allow each coat to fully cure as per the Technical Data Sheet instructions…”touch dry” is NOT fully cured or recoatable.

With over 75 years of experience and a few hot summers behind us, we can advise you fully, along with a specification and application advice…just ask.

Whatever the surface or job in mind, we offer a comprehensive range of coatings: from ROOFS to FLOORS, WALLS or PLANT and SILOs, TENNIS COURTS and MUGAs.

Please contact our Technical Team for advice and product suitability. CALL 01202 295570.

If you are suffering with “Solar Gain” (greenhouse effect) from a glass, asphalt or metal roof, see our Solar Reflective and Anti-glare water based or solvent based products. Now is a great time to give your ROOF some protection.

Once you have established the ideal end-result for your project, refer to our Substrate Index for product options and take a few invaluable moments to read our Painting Guides - see below.
