We offer our customers a choice of three finishes with our UPVC spray painting service: matte, satin, or gloss. Not only do they look different, but they wear differently too and so which is best for you depends on your needs.
Gloss UPVC paint
Gloss paint is reflective; it doesn’t absorb light so has a shine to it, in the exact same way your car paint does when freshly waxed.
Gloss paint is traditionally the most durable option because the chemicals used to create the gloss act as a hardener. That’s why in the trade we say the more gloss a paint has, the more durable it is and the better it will be for tough applications. Despite this, gloss paint is the least popular finish we offer for UPVC.
Satin UPVC paint
Satin paint is semi-opaque; it has approximately 30% of the reflectivity of gloss paint so reflects some light but certainly not all of it.
Satin paint is also a durable choice and because it doesn’t reflect as much light, it hides imperfections in the UPVC surface better than gloss paint. This is a popular option for lighter colours like white, off-white and light grey. Satin is a good choice for old and new windows, as well as garage doors and fascias.
Matte UPVC paint
Matte paint is opaque; it has 0% reflectivity and absorbs whatever light hits it. It is the closest you can get to factory finish UPVC.
The matte paints we use are just as durable as the gloss paints we use, something which is unique to us. Matte paint is the most popular option for darker colours like RAL 7016 Anthracite Grey and RAL 9011 Graphite Black. Matte is also the most popular choice for kitchen cupboard spraying and colour changes.
