5 Reasons to Try Dulux Trade Diamond Matt & Eggshell

Dulux Trade Diamond Matt & Eggshell Hero

You might already be familiar with the Dulux Trade Diamond Matt and Eggshell products - and now there's even more reason to give them a try and put them to the test. This tough, water-based formulation is 10 times tougher than Dulux Trade Vinyl Silk and Vinyl Matt and has new Stain Repellent Technology currently not found in any other durable paint range on the market. Despite Diamond's specialist properties, it applies exactly the same as ordinary emulsion, so you won't extra tools or techniques to use it. Read on for the benefits Diamond Matt and Diamond Eggshell can bring to your business and your clients' day-to-day lives.

1. Scrub

The new tougher formula means that surfaces painted with the updated Diamond products have the ability to be cleaned without damaging the paint - the scrub resistance can withstand up to 10,000 scrub cycles (five times the required scrub rate to qualify for the highest durability rating). That?s a lot of elbow grease.

2. Scuff

Your clients might find they'll be cleaning much less often, as Diamond products have excellent resistance to marks, scuffs and other damage - particularly Eggshell thanks to its higher sheen, making it an ideal choice for high-traffic areas such as corridors, hallways and stairwells. You can also use Diamond Eggshell on trim, making it the durable water-based alternative to solvent gloss products.

3. Stain

The Dulux Trade Diamond rage has Stain Repellant Technology, so stains actively bead on impact with its surface, meaning less contact time - which in turn ensures ease of cleaning (and happier clients).

4. Reputation

All of which means, of course, that the surface stays looking better for longer, with repainting needed less frequently. Not only does this save money for clients, but it will give your reputation a boost. There's also less impact on the environment too - a selling point in itself for green-minded clients and organisations.

5. Colour

Last and by no means least, Diamond Matt and Diamond Eggshell comes in thousands of colours, so there's no need to specify white when you're looking for durability.
