SANDTEX TRADE Launches Guide To Premium Trim Systems

Following an extension of its range of high performance exterior trim coatings, Sandtex Trade has published a new guide to help specifiers to select the most appropriate solutions for exterior joinery and metalwork.

Sandtex Trade’s ‘Guide To Exterior Trim Systems’ shows a total of four different trim coating systems, which can be used to deliver a high gloss or contemporary eggshell finish on both types of substrate.

For exterior woodwork such as doors, architraves and window frames, Sandtex Trade Flexible Primer Undercoat provides a premium foundation for decorative finishes. It has an adhesion promoting formulation and will flex with the substrate as it moves.

Where there is a requirement for exterior woodwork to have a traditional high sheen finish that will stand up to the elements, Sandtex Trade Flexigloss X-tra, used over Sandtex Trade Flexible Primer Undercoat will deliver up to ten years proven performance (manufacturer’s guarantee) and has been awarded a British Board of Agrément Certificate for up to 8 years’ durability.

For a durable but more subtle mid-sheen finish Sandtex Trade Eggshell X-tra is the recommended top coat. Both decorative coatings flex with the substrate as it expands and contracts, thereby alleviating flaking and cracking, and both contain advanced UV inhibitors to provide maximum resistance to fading.

For exterior metalwork including ferrous and non-ferrous metal surfaces and weathered or treated galvanised steelwork, Sandtex Trade Rust Inhibiting Primer Undercoat is the recommended foundation.

This versatile corrosion resistant combination product can be used in conjunction with the recently-launched Sandtex Trade Metalgloss X-tra, or with Sandtex Trade Eggshell X-tra, depending on the finish required.

The Metalgloss X-tra system boasts ten years proven performance (manufacturer’s guarantee).

These systems also include extensive colour choice. Sandtex Trade Flexigloss X-tra, Metalgloss X-tra and Eggshell X-tra are all available off the shelf in a range of popular ready mixed shades and can also be tinted and mixed in almost 2000 additional shades from the Sandtex Trade Colour Collection.
