How to paint tricky surfaces or, which paint for which surface?
The Substrate Index below, (or download as a FREE Resource) is a useful resource for Architects, Interior Designers, Engineers and other paint specifiers. Designed to suggest suitable paints, systems or industrial coatings for individual surfaces, it assumes that you know what the surface is and that it is bare and unpainted. If a surface has been coated previously and you do not intend to strip back to bare and you do not know what the original coating is, then please contact us for technical assistance.

Please read our PREPARATION GUIDE before calling. 01202 295 570.

"Just want to tell you how bloody useful your website is. Your list of substrates and the required paints is just invaluable. Thank You Technical Paints."
Tim Simpson, Plunge Productions.

To use the index (below), simply look for the substrate to be painted and the options that are available will be listed along side with the product code. Please note this is not our full product listing which can be found on our PRODUCTS page.

SAMPLES: If you would like a sample of one of our coatings, please call our Technical Team for advice. Not all products are available from stock. Samples are for trial purposes to test compatibility, sheen or finish. Please note that we do not offer matched colour samples, only colours available from stock.

The cost of up to 2 samples is £5.95+VAT. For 3 or more, to a maximum of 6; £8.75+VAT. The cost of samples is refundable when your order is placed. Samples sent to UK mainland only, via APC Parcels.

Please remember that the Spread Rate of all paints vary and it will save you time and help us with your enquiry, if you can measure or estimate the square area (Square Meterage) of the surface to be painted, as well as having your colour choice prior to contacting us. Technical Data Sheets are available for all products. For information regarding asbestos cement surfaces, please see our Health & Safety page. We manufacture alternatives to lead-based paints, our A49 range; please call us for advice.

Most surfaces after suitable priming are ready to accept a specific paint "system", such as fluorescent, reflective, chemical resistant, marine etc. If you cannot see your surface listed please contact us as we have a comprehensive knowledge of paint for unusual or difficult surfaces.  New plastics and composites are regularly being invented and introduced to the market and for these we offer bespoke manufacture of appropriate, specialised coatings, subject to volume.

Many of our products are temperature sensitive and have an optimum temperature application range to ensure their best performance. We recommend that you check your local weather conditions prior to starting your project. Visit the BBC Weather Site for your area.

"To Pearl Design. For future reference, Technical Paint Services have impressed me enormously - I recommend you keep them on your database for future use!"
Avril Low.
