Choosing the best interior paint can seem confusing.
Are they really that different? The answer is “YES”, and this episode shares why.
I’ve got Joshua Plautz, who is the Interior Products Technical Manager for the Dulux Group. We’re talking all about the nitty gritty details of interior paint products and what you need to know.
It’s worth understanding though, that not all paints are the same, and specific areas require specific products for long-term performance, durability and ease of maintenance.
Josh Plautz and his team are the ones responsible for all the science and technology behind the interior paints and products created by Dulux. If you’re picturing labs and white lab coats, you’re not far wrong.
Josh has a Bachelor of Applied Science in Chemistry, and has worked as an Industrial Chemist. He’s won awards for his skills as a technologist, and I’m super excited to be bringing him to the UA Community.
I see homeowners get really focussed on their colour and material selections for their interiors, but then will often not get involved in the actual product specification process.
This is particularly relevant for painting, when you may be using a painter for your project, and often simply going with the product and brand they use and recommend.
In this interview, Josh helps us understand more about the science of interior paint products, and what to consider when making your selections, whether it’s:
- for different surface types such as your woodwork or walls or ceilings
- for different rooms such as your wet areas or living spaces
- and for different gloss levels as well.
It’s amazing to see how much testing and research goes into the creation of the paint products we use, and how that can help us have products that stand the test of time and survive family life in our homes.
I really hope you enjoy this episode. Listen now.
