DTM paint

Ordering straightforward, good quality paint

James Medley | York | March 2023

This paint is excellent, dries fast and you can overcoat it within 20 mins, so several coats if required within an hour. I have used this type of paint for years and can say with confidence it works on bare metal extremely well. No primer required. I have also used the hammer finished version and again is excellent.

Nothing to dislike all good

I couldn't get a smooth finish with brushes. Unsing a gloss paint roller solved this problem. The paint dries very quickly. Don't start unless unless that part of the job can be completed without lengthy interruptions like lunch or a shower of rain. I am applying the paint to an almost black surface. It's going to need 2 and possibly 3 coats.
