Combat the Toughest Stains With Johnstone’s Trade StainAway
One of the biggest problems faced by property owners and landlords is tackling tough stains left behind by tenants. Not only is it a time-consuming task to rectify, if the right product is not used the results can also be short-lived.
Stains, including smoke damage, water damage and nicotine stains, can be difficult to cover and often cause delays on a job. Traditionally, you would need to apply a stain block primer before adding a top coat. However, even if this has been applied, there will still be a risk that the stains would reappear – leading to additional work or an unsightly mark left behind, both of which demand additional, unplanned labour and material costs.
To help tackle this issue, we developed an innovative product. Johnstone’s StainAway Matt emulsion paint is an all-in-one wall and ceiling paint, guaranteed to tackle the toughest stains. Its durable coating will leave a flat matt finish, while its stain blocking technology acts as a primer and finish in one to permanently block unwanted marks and blemishes.
The Science of StainAway
The stain blocking technology used in StainAway Matt Emulsion paint permanently isolates and covers stains thanks to the crosslinking polymer compounds within the paint layer. This allows for complete coverage and prevents any penetration through to the surface layer. The high opacity levels also help set it apart from anything similar on the market.
In addition to this, the paint also has a class one scrub resistance, making it a viable, longlasting option for projects in need of a durable finish. Combining a top coat and primer into one product, this water-based paint will speed up the time spent on any decorating job.
StainAway is also suitable for use on a wide variety of substrates, including brickwork cement, concrete, render, plaster and plasterboard – making it the perfect solution for stain covering projects of all sizes. The product is available in 2.5ltr, 5ltr and 10ltr sizes in Brilliant White or up to 16,000 colours via the Johnstone’s tinting system.
“When it comes to a paint that blocks water and nicotine stains, Johnstone’s Trade has developed the ideal formulation. StainAway Matt paint is easy to apply with either a brush or roller. It has superb coverage, and it really does cover and blocks stains. We recently used StainAway on a brown, nicotine-stained ceiling. After just two coats, the ceiling was so bright, with no traces of the nicotine bleeding through. From now on, StainAway will always be used on our jobs.” Aston Mills, EA&AJ Mills
“I’d rate this product 5 stars out of 5. It’s fairly priced, easy to use and does what it says on the tin. Johnstone’s Trade has nailed it!” Paul Davis Church, PHS Property Maintenance
