Professionally processed recycled paints – NEWLIFE paints
On a post about eco paints I metioned Newlife who actually recycle trade paints – and from experience, very good their emulsion is too. Equal to Dulux in terms of coverage at a fraction of the price.
I received this further info from Lucy Hoy of their marketing department, just so we know where the company is at.
Our company, Newlife Paints is based in West Sussex. We were formed in 2008 with the sole remit to reprocess waste paint diverted from landfill and incineration back to a premium quality emulsion paint. Our paint is now sold nationwide, our customers range from small firms of painters and decorators to large national construction companies. Following quality and sales trials, Newlife Paint is to be rolled out into 80 B&Q stores in the new year. It is exciting times for us.
The paint product itself is a high quality emulsion paint, comparable to the leading brands such as Dulux and Crown, however in general, the product is more affordable. It is available in a range of 32 contemporary colours, in matt, silk and eggshell finishes. We can supply both interior and exterior grade emulsion.
If you have the time perhaps you could have a look at our website, www.newlifepaints.co.uk. It is currently in the process of being revamped, but all the information about the firm and the paint process and product can be found there. If you are interested I can send you a sample 1L pot and our price list which will allow you to compare the paint both for quality and for cost for yourself. I am sure you will not be disappointed.
I hope they do well. A national contractor trialled their paints on, I believe 80 units, and it came up trumps. In the right place it must be a good option for specifiers. And being recycled, it is reducing overall consumption of VOCs by a huge rate, (14% of all water based paint is trashed every year in UK) making it very eco option for homeowners interested in reducing paint based pollution.
