This section features a collection of unique paints and coatings that provide solutions to specific requirements; such as chalkboard paint, thermal paint, swimming pool paint, brick and tile paint, dry wipe paint, tub and tile paint, squash court paint, metallic paint, and much more.
Find one off products that have been specifically developed for a particular use that is normally quite a niche area. We like to offer products like these because we believe in choosing the correct product for the job rather than trying to make something that's not really meant for it work. Everything from general DIY paints right through to professional high-performance coatings.
Some of the products featured here will also be associated with other sections, as Rawlins Paints continues to grow its product ranges, and manufacturers extend theirs, too. Others, however, are difficult to tie in with bigger umbrella categories, as they have been designed for one task, and one task alone!

Historic buildings, including churches, castles and period properties, sometimes require a product that can deliver the exact requirements involved with renovation and refurbishment projects. Zinsser Grade 1 is a product that is frequently used in listed building to match precise colour schemes and stop legacy fungal degradation that has resulted in the need for the renovation project. Thanks to its vapour permeable film, the underlying substrate can breathe, and any damp that is in the brick, stone or masonry can naturally evaporate, without condensation, damp or mildew problems to the topcoat finish.
