Take your home-business to the next level with a striking, rootsy and filter-free ‘blank canvas’ brick wall for online product promotion.

Solvent-Based Brick and Tile Paint

Blackfriar’s Brick and Tile Paint is solvent-based, allowing users to add/restore colour to faded brickwork and tiles.


Prior to application, ensure all surface areas to be coated are clean, dry, sound and free from contamination. Treat any mould growth and allow to dry completely before applying Blackfriar Brick and Tile Paint.


Stir the product thoroughly prior to use. This brick and tile paint may be applied by brush, roller or spray – and for best results, Blackfriar recommend applying by brush, then working the paint into the tile or brick profile. Application of two coats of red tile and brick paint will provide the best protection for tiled roof and brick walls.


Maximum 5% white spirit.


This product is not suitable for use on quarry tiles. Blackfriar also recommend using their specialist anti-slip step paint, rather than its brick and tile paint for steps. Do not use under cold (less than 5°C), damp or humid conditions. Spreading rate of the first coat may be reduced on porous surfaces.


Up to 14m² per litre per coat.

Drying Time

Each coating will be touch dry in 2 - 4 hours and re-coatable after 16 hours and within 3 days. Drying times are based on an ambient temperature of 20°C and 50% relative humidity. Lower temperatures or higher humidity will prolong the drying and overcoating times.


Remove as much product as possible from application equipment before washing with white spirit. Do not empty into drains or water courses. Some local authorities have special facilities for the disposal of waste coatings.


Store in a dry, safe place. Do not store in environments where extreme temperatures may occur. Keep within 5-30°C. Do not store in direct sunlight.

questions Sue on 07/07/2018

How do I remove this from clothing as I leant against something I was painting and cannot remove the tile paint thanks


The below advice is followed at your own risk, we can’t guarantee the paint can be removed.

If the paint hasn’t fully dried then white spirit will soften it however it can spread the paint stain so just apply sparingly and dab it with a cloth, don’t soak the garment. Do a small test area with white spirit on the garment first to make sure there is no effect on the fabric. Once you have removed the paint then dry cleaning may be advisable.

If the paint is already dry then ask a dry cleaner for advice. There are no readily available solvents that could be used.

I spilled paint on my black slate roof a roofer painted over the paint now after years paint is showing again can u advise


You could try to remove the unwanted paint with something like Thermoguard Thermostrip PRO or simply recoat the area with more roof paint in the colour of your choice if this provides an easier and satisfactory appearance for you.

Question: How do you remove Acrylic Roof Paint from, Brick, UPVC, Plastic and glass?

You can use our 1401 Graffiti Remover but it is important to test on the surface first to establish the correct dwell time to ensure the substrate is not affected.
