What can I say excellent customer service and the best paint there is I've used avko paint for a number of years the opacity and adhesion of there paint is unbelievable. I sprayed my own kitchen cupboard doors well over 10yrs ago and can honestly say they still look as good as the day they were done the bottom doors have had a dog jumping up them scratching them with its claws which hasn't left any scratches there is the odd dent but the paint hasn't broken or chipped off. I've sprayed thousands of upvc windows and doors using the recommended procedure and have never had any issues with fading or poor adhesion. I really can't recommend there paint products enough also the technical support is second to none .keep up the excellent work avko and thank you for such a great product you really are clever people .

I contacted Avko as I had an upcoming contract, they were very helpful and provided a lot of technical support and also supplied a small quantity of free issue paint for 1st off sampling. I have no issue recommending them to anyone.

How do I use your paint for metal?

Our team of technical experts are always on hand to help with any queries whether that’s over the phone or via email. If you’re just starting out, you may find our tutorials helpful.

We are currently working on a video tutorial for this product, but in the meantime, our team would be happy to help discuss any queries. We will update this page once the video tutorial is ready so check back here soon.

We also offer spray training courses for new customers that are just starting out or those who need a refresher.

Important Advice

We have produced these helpful video animations with important advice about using our products. If you have any questions, you can contact us at [email protected].

Advice for stirring and shaking the paints

When paint is left to stand for a while for example during delivery or when it’s on a shelf, the paint mix can separate inside the tin. This uneven mix can result in differences in colour, problems with coverage or potential adhesion issues.

Before using any AVKOTE paint product, stir or shake the paint thoroughly to ensure an even mix from the very first pour to the very last drip. Watch our video tutorial for more information and advice.

Advice for using correct mixing ratios of paint:activator

Whilst all AVKO paints will arrive thinned and almost ready to spray, they will need to be mixed in with an activator before you go ahead with your job. This will ensure proper adhesion for years to come.

The mixing ratio of paint to activator (usually a hardener) will vary from product to product, so it’s important you check the product information label on the paint can or our technical data sheet.

Staying safe whilst using specialist paints

It is important to adhere to safety advice when using any specialist paints whether it’s for glass, plastic, wood, GRP or metal.

Protective clothing (PPE) such as a spray suit, gloves and an air-fed mask should be worn at all times when using AVKO products. We also offer advice on spray booth set-up on our website. Our sales team are also happy to help with any queries you have.

If spraying on-site, make sure that you are applying the product in a well-ventilated area as well as that you are wearing the appropriate PPE.

Each can of paint comes with a unique label which details specific safety information related to that product. All of our technical data sheets are available on our website as well as material safety data sheets, which can be requested from our sales team
