During July and August 2013, Johnstone’s gave decorators the chance to test the application qualities of its Aqua Gloss water-based paint as part of the Aqua Challenge roadshow. Johnstone’s Aqua Gloss overcomes the impacts of legislative changes regarding solvent-based products but still boasts similar application qualities. It has been designed to offer shorter drying times, low odour and reduced yellowing.
A range of paints and finishes from Johnstone’s have been specified for the new, 13,000 capacity Leeds Arena. Johnstone’s washable Acrylic Eggshell and durable Covaplus have been used on plastered walls and stair soffits while the company’s Stormshield Smooth Masonry paint has been used to protect the exposed internal blockwork. Johnstone’s Flortred was applied to the concrete floors to ensure staff and visitor safety.
