Mythbuster: Diamond Matt & Eggshell

Mythbuster: Diamond Matt & Eggshell

There are many urban myths when it comes to paint and application techniques, so we thought it was about time we settled these debates once and for all. We kick off with one of the decorating trade's most misconceived products: high performance paint. Dulux Trade's Diamond Matt and Eggshell products have recently been upgraded with Stain Repellent Technology, so it will actively bead liquids on impact with the surface, meaning less contact time and less chance of staining occurring.

No other paint on the market has this innovative formula, so what better time to put the record straight about high performance paint…


High performance coatings such as Dulux Trade Diamond are more difficult to apply than regular emulsion.


Our Diamond range is as easy to apply as our Vinyl matt emulsion. There's no extra prep needed and no special application techniques or specialist tools needed to apply it either.

So there you have it, a bona fide myth busted for good.
