Anthracite Grey one of the most popular colours

No.1 Palatine Professional Satin Finish

People are loving our satin finish, decorative and protective top coat for interior / exterior use. The satin finish means your surface will reflect some light, but doesn’t have the high ‘mirror’ finish of gloss. With its high opacity, Palatine Professional satin finish paint will give a great looking surface which is touch dry in 3 hours. Use on internal or external wood and metal surfaces.

Most Popular Colour? Contemporary anthracite grey is a really popular choice for Palatine Professional Satin Finish. Our customers tell us the subtle, darker shade of grey in a high quality, satin finish is perfect for modern looking window frames and doors.
