Latex, or acrylic, paints dry quickly, low odour, and are easy to clean with soap and water. Widely used as interior paint and exterior paint, latex is a popular choice for most jobs from sheds to bedrooms! It is fade and crack resistant, and perfect for any non-humid interior rooms like living rooms or hallways. Most painters will find exactly what they’re looking for from our range of SICO paint.
Alkyd, or oil-based paints, are more moisture resistant, adhere and smooth easily onto rough surfaces, and abrasion resistant. They require solvents for clean-up, have strong odours and take longer to dry but they are hard wearing for high traffic areas. Thanks to its tight molecular makeup, they are a popular choice for interior or exterior trim and woodwork that receive more wear and tear than the rest of the wall.
