Richard Taylor - Weta Workshop

To whom it may concern, Weta has had a proud relationship with PaintPlus for over 10 years now. We use a wide range of PaintPlus products for different applications on our miniatures and props in the workshop. The Scenic Flat range is invaluable to us for the priming and ageing down of our miniatures and bigatures. We use the Flexi Film for our rock faces and joins in our foam work as it seals the joints to stop the paint soaking in. It gives the very weak polystyrene great...

I am the Senior Project Manager for Coffey Projects, managers to the Waikato District Health Board Campus Redevelopment Project. This is a record of the history I have experienced with the adoption of the PaintPlus products into our construction and maintenance programmes at the Waikato Hospital site.

Exnol Harris - The Waldorf Hilton London

I have been asked by Adam to express my opinion with regards to the use of Paint Plus products here at the Hotel which we’ve been using for over two years with great success.

Charles Griffith - Doubletree by Hilton

I have been asked by Adam Green at Paint Plus to put together a short letter setting out why I believe their products are like no other available today. I would say the most important detail is the drying time. We can paint any area from a corridor wall to a bedroom door which will be touch dry in around 20 minutes and competed from start to finish with the door being closed in around 2 hours and that’s with 2 coats of paint ! All the products have virtually no smell and...

Neil Glenister - Doubletree by Hilton

I have been using Paint Plus products for over 5 years now in my previous 3 hotels (The Grove, Park Plaza Westminster Bridge and Mint Hotel / Doubletree by Hilton, London – Tower of London), and can highly recommend the products supplied by Paint Plus. They are quick drying, very low odour, very durable, and the Carbon Neutral Certification is a highly desirable quality in this day and age. For the hospitality business all of the aforementioned qualities are essential,...

Rafal Kolakowski - Hilton London Tower Bridge

I’ve been using Paint Plus for over two years. The paint have several excellent values like odourless, quick drying time and extreme durability. Especially durability is very important in the commercial building to keep low cost of maintenance. Paint Plus finish can be easily cleaned when soiled without any damage to the surface. Personally I tried to clean red wine spillage from the wall painted with Paint Plus and even though it was matt finish I was able to remove the...

Rachael Carrick - Home owner with comment about asthma

I have been meaning to email you since we painted my son Edward's room last week.  Because of Edward's asthma and general tendency to be allergic to a lot of things we have always used low odour water-based paints.  When I was pregnant with my second child I saw an article in a magazine about paint plus and was really interested in it.  We were about to paint our new extension, and as our decorators had not heard of your paint we didn't take the risk - I really wish...

Mr. D Bell - Park Plaza Hotel Westminster Bridge

We were introduced to Paint Plus as a quality eco friendly paint that was durable, quick drying and with virtually no odour. These qualities were of interest to us as we need to complete decoration work to guest rooms and public areas quickly and with the least inconvenience to customers and staff. Our decorators, whilst sceptical at first have found that the Paint Plus products actually “do what they say on the tin” and have been very pleased with the ease of...

Vinnie Healy

I have suffered from asthma and severe chemical-induced side-effects for many years. I have always found it extremely hard to get paints that don't make me ill when I'm exposed to the fumes. I have tried all the so-called environmentally friendly and low-toxicity paints available in the New Zealand market and they have, without exception, made me quite unwell. PaintPlus have the only paints that I've used that have been truly non-toxic and very low in allergens. They are fantastic and really...

Our queries regarding products are often complex, technical and quite specific to the theatre industry. This is where we've found PaintPlus to excel. We have found that no query is too obscure or no request too much trouble for PaintPlus to find the answer to.

Graham Ball Building Services

I found the service second to none. The paint is a pleasure to use.

Pauline Morris

I am an asthmatic who loves to decorate. The two just didn't mix until now. For years I have struggled with paint fumes during painting and for days after. But after using your paint, fumes are no longer a problem. I can even paint with the door closed. I did my son's room with your paint, and he was able to move in as soon as the paint dried! It also looked great.

Neil Rutherford
