April 30, 2012 - PRLog -- A new video has been produced by Sandtex Trade, to help specifiers select the most appropriate trim paint product for exterior joinery and metalwork.

The short film – available to view at - demonstrates the use of four high performance Sandtex Trade trim coating systems, all specially formulated to provide exceptional protection from the elements and long-lasting appearance retention.

Presented by Sandtex Trade’s National Product Trainer Kevin O’Donnell, the video includes an overview of Sandtex Trade Flexible Primer Undercoat - an alkyd-based primer with an adhesion promoting formulation and flexible finish.

Viewers also learn more about Sandtex Trade Flexigloss X-tra, which can be used in conjunction with Sandtex Trade Flexible Primer Undercoat , and delivers a high sheen, traditional gloss finish boasting a manufacturer’s guarantee for ten years’ performance and a British Board of Agrément Certificate for up to eight years’ durability.

For a more subtle mid-sheen finish, Sandtex Trade Eggshell X-tra, used with the same Flexible Primer Undercoat, provides a contemporary eggshell appearance and long term weather protection.  

Both systems cure to a flexible finish which resists flaking and cracking due to any expansion and contraction of the underlying substrate in response to changing weather conditions. Advanced UV inhibitors also provide maximum resistance to fading, even after prolonged exposure to sunlight.

The video then covers the decoration and protection of metal trim areas, recommending the use of Sandtex Trade Rust Inhibiting Primer Undercoat to provide the best foundation on ferrous and non-ferrous metal surfaces and weathered or treated galvanised steelwork.

Depending on the finish required, this versatile corrosion-resistant product can be used in conjunction with Sandtex Trade Eggshell X-tra, or with the latest addition to the Sandtex Trade range, Metalgloss X-tra.

Two coats of Sandtex Trade Rust Inhibiting Primer Undercoat followed by one coat of Sandtex Trade Metalgloss X-tra will deliver an excellent, flexible, high gloss finish that won’t crack, flake or fade, with a reassuring ten-year manufacturer’s durability guarantee.

Sharon Smith, Sandtex Trade Brand Manager, said: “Sandtex Trade has been recognised for more than 50 years as the premium masonry brand, and this video helps raise awareness of the trim products we also produce.

“Whichever Sandtex Trade trim coating system is selected, specifiers have the reassurance of best in class products, as well as an excellent colour palette to choose from, with Flexigloss X-tra, Eggshell X-tra and Metalgloss X-tra all available in a range of popular ready mixed paint colours and in hundreds of additional tinted shades from the Sandtex Trade Colour Collection.”
