This is Sandtex Trade_E4

Ways of creating a uniform surface are all covered in-depth in the fourth video in the ‘This Is Sandtex Trade’ series.


‘This Is Sandtex Trade’ looks at a range of subjects relating to exterior painting.


In the fourth part of the series Kevin O’Donnell – product trainer for Crown Paints – discusses how Sandtex Trade’s system approach can cope with uneven surfaces – and give movement cracks the brush-off.


He explains how Sandtex Trade Membrane Primer and Sandtex Trade Polyester Membrane, used in conjunction with Sandtex Trade High Build Textured Decorative Coating, offer exceptional performance on uneven masonry surfaces – and provide a trusted method of bridging exterior movement cracks.


The video, available to view at, demonstrates how to install the Sandtex Trade membrane primer and polyester membrane.


It also explores the different application methods for the Sandtex Trade High Build Textured Decorative Coating, including a hands-on demonstration of four different techniques.


Sharon Smith, Sandtex Trade Brand Manager, said: “This latest video offers a great way to show how this system approach works and provides decorators with an insight into how technical issues can be effectively and accurately addressed.


“Our primer and polyester membrane combination delivers exceptional results when used with Sandtex Trade High Build Textured Decorative Coating.


“They both provide a solid foundation for the coating, which delivers a textured, matt finish which is both decorative and protective.


“Sandtex Trade High Build Textured Decorative Coating’s formulation has been developed to cover cracks and repair uneven surfaces.


“It’s also developed to last, holding a British Board of Agrément Certificate for up to 15 years’ durability. It is available in white and eight ready mixed colours.”


Five videos are being launched throughout 2016 in the ‘This Is Sandtex Trade’ series, to help the trade build-up a complete picture on exterior painting.


They expand on the content already provided on Sandtex Trade’s website and can be accessed easily with a fully responsive format for all media devices including mobiles, tablets and computers.

All the videos include a wide-range of information presented in the form of studio demonstrations and on site situations.


The first video was launched earlier this year and addressed the topic of preparation and pre-treatment, while the second featured the different types of masonry paints. Trims were covered in the third episode.


The first, second, third and fourth episodes in the ‘This Is Sandtex Trade’ series can be viewed on the Sandtex Trade website as well as the brand’s YouTube channel


A product video is also available to view at which sets out the unique benefits of Sandtex Trade’s High Build Textured Decorative Coating.
