Trade and Retail Paint; What's the difference for the customer?

Good morning and a Happy New Year to you all.

We haven't posted for a while so here goes.............

Customers ask us daily what the differences are between Trade and Retail paint standards.

Using a Trade Standard paint will make your job so much easier, but don't just take it from us.....

The following is quoted from


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.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask us.
