Q: How long does gloss paint take to dry?
A: The majority of alkyd / oil paints will be dry within six to eight hours. A second coat may then be applied within 16 hours - this may vary slightly depending on the type of paint.
By comparison, quick drying latex based paints, such as Crown Quick Dry Gloss take only 1 hour to dry. A second coat can be applied as soon as 4 hours after - we recommend leaving for the full 6 hours before recoating.
Q: How does this gloss paint compare with Crown Trade paints?
A: While we don't currently stock the Crown Trade paint range, Crown Quick Dry Gloss provides excellent quality and coverage. As it is quick drying this makes it ideal for trade use.

A: Yes. modern water-based gloss paints are ideal for use on radiators. It's important however to ensure that the radiator is totally cool when painting and allow a full 12 hours for the paint to harden after the final coat before turning radiators back on.
