Firwood 2542 Premium silk emulsion paint has been developed to offer outstanding durability with the added benefit of having no added solvent in the base white paint formulation. The acrylic formula is excellent for painting walls where high traffic is expected for example in stairwells, kitchens and public buildings as well as around the home where a silk finish is preferred. Excellent for use on relief wallpapers and direct to suitably prepared walls and ceilings. Previously un-painted plaster should be sealed prior to painting by the use of this product thinned with water in the ratio of 4 parts paint to 1 water.

Brilliant White is produced with no added solvents in the formulation. Where colours are tinted a small amount of solvent may be added due to its presence in commercially available tinting systems.

Looks great
By Sue from Horwich on July 21st 2015
I'm fed up of the emulsion paints you buy at DIY stores and purchased this from Firwood who are local to me. The product covered really well and was easy to apply with roller and brush. My kitchen looks clean and fresh now!

I was fed up of the main brand emulsion paints and tried this make for a change. It was great to apply, covered well and looks good. Very little odour. Would happily recommend it to others.
