There are many important differences between Professional and Retail paints. Professional paints need to last longer and be more versatile, whilst meeting the high demands of all professional users and their customers.
Here are the main differences:
Professional paints cover better even after thinning - this can save time, money and avoid extra coats
Professional paints have a higher spreading rate than retail - this saves money
Larger packsizes are more economical
Professional paints are consistently tested to make sure that they reach the high standards of professional users and their customers
Professional paint offers more job specific products so you can use the best materials for the job, getting even better results
Trade paints aren't just for professionals. Everyone can use them, meaning that anyone can reap the benefits.
We hope this allows you to understand the differences slightly better.
