Do you really want me to write a review? I'm still waiting for the remainder of Owatrol Oil order! Okay otherwise.

My order has still not been delivered. Not actually Promain's fault but they do have my money and I do not have my goods after three weeks!

Our apologies for the inconvenience caused. As discussed, your order was despatched directly from the manufacturer. Rust-Oleum have confirmed the delay was due to a courier error. Replacement goods were sent and signed for 02/12/19. If you need any help please let the team at Promain know.

Hi Mr Kozlowski, Unfortunately the £25+vat delivery charge is what we are charged from Mapei the supplier as the product comes from them direct. As we distribute hazardous goods (paint) sometimes the delivery cost can be much higher than standard everyday goods. Our apologies for the inconvenience caused. The Team at

After calling Promain’s technical helpline I was recommended Combi color by one of their staff. I was after a smooth surface finish and fast drying time. Upon using the product it unfortunately didn’t live up to either of these expectations. I emailed in to ask for further advice and support, only to be ignored.

Paint is good quality stuff but the Centrecoat Line Marking Machine I purchased is totally useless not fit for purpose. It does not work as it should.

The services from the individuals I spoke to on the telephone was excellent. Regarding the rust converter and the zinc undercoat, this worked well as described. However I was disappointed with the SureGrip paint. I followed the instructions to the letter. However after it cured, the paint still seems slightly "soft" and the sandy substance that gives the paint a grip comes away quite easily (by scraping a fingernail). I lost confidence in the product after I painted a test patch and used an alternative product for the rest of the project.

Product arrived promptly but have been dissatisfied with advice given subsequent responses- will not be using this company in future.

You mislaid my urgent order in your warehouse and I had to phone to find out where it was!

Delivery was fine. I ordered a large amount of paint to pain my house. At the end we had three pots too many still in the boxes in which they arrived. There was no possibility to return for a refund or credit note. I now recommend to friends etc to order from a local supplier for more flexibility. Very disappointed.

The member of Promain staff was trying to be helpful when I asked about using Polytrol for a faded GRP front door. The product was useless and expensive and the staff member was clearly quoting what the manufacturers say in their advertising literature. This was misleading and I won't be using either Polytrol or Promain again. Instead I went to Screwfix, bought a water based primer for plastic then painted the door with conventional oil based paint. It was a good result and I should have done this in the beginning, saving time and money.
