In just a few clicks, you can net a free trial pack of this polished performer, which is emerging as a star player in the painting and decorating industry.


Debbie Orr, Marketing Manager of Trade brands at Crown Paints, said: “The Crown Trade Fastflow Gloss system has real star quality and the promotion gives us a superb window of opportunity to showcase its quality and performance to the trade and demonstrate why it is gaining a growing fan base among users.”


Comprising of Crown Trade Fastflow Quick Dry Gloss and Fastflow Quick Dry Primer Undercoat, the new system is the latest signing in the Crown Trade Paints’ range and marks a landmark development in the paint manufacturer’s 200 year history.

Crown Paints has invested heavily in research and development to ensure the water-based Crown Trade Fastflow Gloss system sets the pace for the future in terms of style, speed, substance and sustainability.

Significant advances have been made in alkyd emulsion technology to ensure excellent coverage and opacity, exceptional flow - and fast-track drying times which enable two coats to be applied in just one day.

It applies like an oil-based product, flowing extremely well with no dragging or pulling, and dries very quickly to leave a traditional oil-based wet look.

The end result is a stunning, high gloss finish to a standard normally associated with solvent borne paints, which doesn’t fade and leaves a crisp, white shade that will last for the long term.

Debbie added: “The Crown Trade Fastflow Gloss system has been really well-received since its launch last year across the trade.

“It offers a high quality, durable, long-lasting finish traditionally associated with solvent-borne products.

“There is also no odour and it is quick drying - and touch dry in just one hour.”

The Crown Trade Fastflow promotion is the first of the celebrations of Crown Paints’ renewal of its year-long sponsorship of Sky Sports News HQ at Ten, which will see its high quality, trade brands - which include Sandtex Trade and Sadolin as well as Crown Trade - appear on the TV every day throughout 2016.
