We match to standard colour charts (RAL/BS/Car Colour Charts) however if you need this matching directly we advise you send in a sample panel as colours can vary. 

When you send in a sample panel our paint mixers will colour match by eye. They will keep tinting the paint over and painting it out onto a spray-out card. Once the paint has dried on the card they will check against the sample and if it needs amending they will add more tinters until the colour is correct. 

We currently supply a small range of Heat-Resistant paint, which can be ordered here

We can supply Tractol which is an alternative to Hammerite.

If you need further information please contact us. 

We match to RAL Classic and BS 4800 & BS 381C colour charts. If you choose a colour from these charts we would require a gloss level.  

If the colour you require is not on these charts or is a shade off, please supply a sample panel and we can match to this. 

At the moment we do not supply Candy Colours. 

At the moment we do not supply interior Household Paints such as emulsions. Our range of paints are mainly used for exterior use as they have a strong odour.

We are able to mix paints for windows and doors which is exterior use. Please contact us for more information. 

We advise that you apply a primer to bare materials. We supply several primers for different materials. 

You do not have to apply a primer if you are over-coating existing paint, however you can to help with the coverage for the paint. 

Please contact us if you are unsure of what primer you require.
