Interior Wall Paint
AURO wall paints have excellent microporous characteristics, letting walls breathe naturally. They contain no fungicides or chemicals.
- 321 Matt Emulsion our best selling, general purpose domestic emulsion, ideal for living rooms, bedrooms, etc.
- 524 Premium Washable Emulsion - breaking new ground for Natural & Eco paints, this goes over almost all internal wall surfaces, it dries quicker with virtually no odour, it has the highest opacity in its class meaning in many cases one coat will suffice, it is highly durable with Class 1 abrasion resistance. Our recommendation for Kitchens, Bathrooms, high demand areas and commercial applications.
- 320 Economy Emulsion is great to use as a 'mist coat' (priming coat) on new plaster, or for freshening up ceilings and walls if you're on a tight budget (not so great for obliterating over strong colours).
- 326 Chalk Paint is a basic white paint, similar to a limewash, great for brightening up damp basements as it is highly breathable.
As colours can vary on digital screens we recommend you take a colourchart and ideally order tester pots to ensure satisfaction.
Painting over lime plaster?
Painting on to new gypsum plaster or a skim coat?
Although AURO wall & ceiling paints are breathable and will allow moisture to pass out it is best practice to allow the plaster to dry thoroughly then be sure to either apply a plaster primer (such as AURO 301) or a mist coat - applying undiluted paint directly onto unprimed plaster leaves the paint prone to having the moisture 'sucked' out of it by the plaster and causing a potentially dry, flaky finish.
Painting a kitchen or bathroom?
We recommend the AURO 524 Premium Washable Emulsion as it offers the greatest durability in a humid environment although the AURO 327 Anti -Mould paint is also a popular choice for UK bathrooms - both products are breathable.
