Product Description

Our Universal Satin Multi Surface Paint is an alkyd satin coating available in black, white, anthracite grey and more. It provides a durable finish to almost any prepared surface, including wood, metal, plastic, uPVC, MDF and tiles. It features increased adhesion strength to allow application on materials that are otherwise difficult to paint. This is a solvent based alternative to the many water based multi surface paints available.

Universal Satin provides a long lasting and weather resistant finish, making it ideal for use in outdoor environments as well as indoor surfaces. The solvent based nature of the paint also allows it to overcoat most existing paints or coatings that may be on a surface.

Palatine Paints is a manufacturer of paints rather than simply a supplier. Because of this, we are able to provide in depth technical information on our Universal Satin, as well as our extensive range of other coatings and paints.

We can recommend a suitable primer for the surface you are painting, check compatibility with surfaces and other types of coating, or calculate the quantity of paint you will require. If you have a query, you can contact us through web chat, phone or email and we will help you as efficiently as possible.

As a manufacturer, we are also able to provide custom colours in most of our products, including our 1K Universal Satin. We are able to match to the RAL Classic, British Standard 4800 and 381C, and NCS 2050 charts. If you are not sure which colour will match an existing object, surface or paint, you can bring a sample to our shop, where we can help you find the perfect match.

For a multi surface primer suitable for most surface types, see Coo-Var Prime All.

Universal Satin Multi Surface Paint Application

Preparation: On previously painted surfaces, ensure it is sound and non-flaking. Abrade the surface preferably by mechanical abrasion to provide a “key” and maximise adhesion of the subsequent coating. For metal surfaces the standard grades of cleanliness for abrasive blast cleaning in accordance with BS EN ISO 8501-1[1] are:

  • Sa 1 – Light blast cleaning
  • Sa 2 – Thorough blast cleaning
  • Sa 2½ – Very thorough blast cleaning
  • Sa 3 – Blast cleaning to visually clean steel

Mixing: Stir the paint with a drill stirrer or wooden baton at least 2” wide. Continue to stir during application to avoid thickening of the product.

Application: Apply by brush, roller or spray and work well into the surface. Avoid applying the paint to thickly to avoid delaying drying times. The second and subsequent coats can be applied as soon as the first / preceding coat is dry usually after 12-24 hours, and should be applied within 5 days.

If more than 5 days elapse, the first coat should be lightly abraded before the second coat is applied. Avoid power washing the surface for 7 days.

Universal Satin Multi Purpose Paint is touch dry in 3 hours and hard dry in 24 hours. Once applied, leave for 16 hours before overcoating.

Expected Coverage: 12 to 14m² per litre

For thinning and cleaning, use white spirit.

Why does condensation form in my home?
Condensation forms more easily on cold surfaces in the home, for example walls and ceilings. In some cases, those surfaces can be made warmer by improving the thermal insulation. In many cases, thermal insulation is not possible due to house configuration or cost of refurbishment. An efficient way of combating condensation is to cover walls and ceilings with a specially formulated anti-condensation paint and TruTherm anti condensation paint has been formulated using the latest technology of additives.

What is the difference between anti condensation paint and thermal anti condensation paint?
Anti-condensation paint and thermal anti-condensation paint both aim to prevent condensation issues, but they work in slightly different ways:

Anti-Condensation Paint:
Purpose: Anti-condensation paint is designed to stop damp problems caused by moisture from inside the property.
Function: It creates a layer of insulation on surfaces, reducing the formation of water droplets on walls. This type of paint is particularly useful in areas prone to high humidity, such as bathrooms, kitchens, or basements.
Effect: By improving the thermal performance of surfaces, it makes them less likely to retain moisture, preventing condensation and mold formation.
Limitations: While it helps reduce condensation, it cannot completely prevent mold growth. Good air circulation, adequate heating, and ventilation are still essential12.
Thermal Anti-Condensation Paint:
Purpose: Like anti-condensation paint, thermal anti-condensation paint aims to prevent condensation, but it focuses on thermal insulation.
Function: It absorbs and holds heat longer than standard emulsions. By doing so, it prevents condensation from forming on the surface of the wall, as the heat evaporates any moisture.
Effect: The improved thermal properties keep the wall warmer, reducing the risk of condensation.
Application: Use it in areas where standard paints might struggle due to constant high humidity and moisture levels.
Note: While it helps prevent condensation, it’s essential to address root causes (such as ventilation and heating) alongside using this paint for optimal protection32.
In summary, both types of paint serve similar purposes but approach the problem from different angles. Consider your specific needs and the environment when choosing between them. Remember that no paint can completely eliminate mould growth, so proper maintenance and ventilation remain crucial.
