Dead Flat is a new water-based paint finish with low light reflection, making it ideal for large areas or for walls & ceilings with a less than ideal surface finish.
The problem with some standard finishes is that the paint film dries with a level of sheen that can highlight imperfections. This effect is particularly noticeable on large expanses of walls and ceilings where every tiny imperfection stands out as a feature.
Dead Flat paint eliminates these issues, leaving a painted surface that is almost suede like in appearance with a depth of colour that is unmatched by any other kind of finish.
There are already Flat or Anti-Reflex paints already on the market (Tikkurila Anti Reflex & Johnstone’s Perfect Matt, for example) which are tried and tested when used on walls and ceilings.
Farrow & Ball’s version, however, is a multi-surface coating so you can can also use it on woodwork and metalwork, thereby enabling a uniform finish throughout, in other words, the ideal choice for colour-drenching.
Painting the walls, woodwork and radiators has become a popular trend but necessitates buying separate finishes. And, despite accurate colour matching, the difference in sheen levels can hamper the attempt at a uniform finish.
Because Dead Flat can be used on all surfaces it ensures that you’ll get the same finish regardless of where you use it.
Dead Flat has a low VOC content and is certified Child Safe, so is also the perfect choice for nurseries and children’s rooms.
Farrow & Ball are already renowned for the quality of finish, Dead Flat goes one stage further.
