SANDTEX TRADE - EXTERIOR TRIM PAINTS


This is our premium range of exterior trim paints suitable for shutters, window frames, doors and metalwork.


A question we are frequently asked is that regarding the suitability of "British" paints in South West France. Where paint failure has been experienced, it is generally due to one of two reasons - a low-cost, shop own-brand general trim paint that is not suited to the application, or poor preparation of the substrate/incorrect primer system.


These Sandtex Trade products are developed for the INTERNATIONAL market (NOT just the UK). They all have added UV inhibitors and have flexible properties meaning they provide greater resistance to cracking and flaking than traditional trim products. This formulation is exported throughout Africa, India and in Europe to countries such as Portugal, Spain and Gibraltar - countries with significantly higher UV and heat issues than South West France.


Regarding tinted colours, we are very familiar with many of the specific requirements of certain buildings and communes. We offer a colour matching service to ensure you fully comply with any local colour restrictions.
