*Diamond Satinwood is available in light and extra deep bases, enabling the majority of colours to be mixed. The full colour range will be available in the future. Diamond Satinwood offers superior grease resistance and excellent flow and levelling for a premium finish. If the desired colour is a Medium Base (not currently available in the Diamond Satinwood range), we advise to use Dulux QD Satinwood, a durable water-based formulation for wood and metal. **Terms and conditions apply.
