Getting the best finish for exterior trims is featured in the third episode of the 'This Is Sandtex Trade' video series.

Kevin O'Donnell, Product Trainer for Crown Paints, sets out the solutions for wood, metal and PVC-u using Sandtex Trade's extensive range in this latest short film.

The video starts with on overview of priming and preparation and then gives an insight into the different requirements of various substrates.

The attributes of products in the trims range, including Sandtex Trade Flexigloss X-tra, Sandtex Trade Eggshell X-tra and Sandtex Trade Metalgloss X-tra, are also explored.

Sharon Smith, Sandtex Trade Brand Manager, said: "Trims such as window frames and guttering are an integral part of any exterior redecoration.

"As part of the Sandtex trade system approach, specific products for trims are formulated to provide superior protection, as well as a fantastic finish.

"This latest video offers a great way to show how this approach works and provides painters and decorators with time-proven and trusted coatings that offer optimum performance."

Five videos are being launched throughout 2016 in the 'This Is Sandtex Trade' series, to help painters and decorators build up a complete picture on exterior painting.

They build on the content already provided on Sandtex Trade's website www.sandtextrade.co.uk 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.

The first, second and third episodes in the 'This Is Sandtex Trade' series can be viewed on the Sandtex Trade website as well as the brand's YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/SandtexTrade
The videos, as well as the website, build on a wealth of digital content already available from the brand, including PaintSpec Finder®.

Available at www.crownpaintspec.co.uk PaintSpec Finder® delivers instant and technically-detailed plans for exterior and interior projects, with a user-friendly format which filters through a great deal of technical information to pinpoint exactly what products - from the professional brands of Crown Trade and Sadolin, as well as Sandtex Trade - are needed for chosen projects.

PaintSpec Finder® then pulls together the specifications into a report, with a personalised cover sheet showing the customer's name, the project and the user's own details, which is then all ready for decorators to hand to their client or add to their tender or reference documents.

Also of special interest to decorators and their clients is the Crown MyRoomPainter app to investigate colour options.

This facility is designed to enable tradespeople to offer instant schemes while out on site using a smartphone or mobile tablet to show how any palette will look in situ.

Available for free download, the Crown MyRoomPainter™ app is designed to visualise how any room will look in any spectrum of shades.

It also contains a colour-matching function, a handy paint calculator and an inspirational library. Projects can be saved and shared online too, enabling you to give your clients the chance to consider their options before selecting a scheme.

By using the app, decorators can take pictures of a room and show their clients exactly how a finished project will look in whatever shade is chosen.

The Crown MyRoomPainter™ app is available to download free of charge for smartphone or tablet from the App Store or Google Play.
