Our Multi Purpose Universal Gloss Paint is an alkyd gloss coating. 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 Gloss 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 Gloss, 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 Universal Gloss. We are able to match to RAL Classic, British Standard 4800 and 381C, and NCS 2050. 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.

Multi Purpose Universal Gloss 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 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
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 Gloss 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.
