For services to painting...
Also feted at the recent Master Painters 2019 conference was Trevor Haydon, founder of Haydn Brush, who we were also delighted to see at the recent Hardware Awards with Haydn as a first time Finalist.
During conference, Trevor was “surprised and extremely honoured” to receive an Honorary Master Painters Association Life Membership “in recognition of continued tremendous service to the New Zealand painting and decorating industry”.
During Trevor’s acceptance speech he thanked all the members for their support over many years, indicating without this support the company would not be where it is today.
 White Knight by PPG boosts
Rust Guard range
In response to the increasing demand for products that support restoration over replacement, two new products have been added to the White Knight Rust Guard range to make it easier to treat, restore and protect metal surfaces. The new products will be on shelves across New Zealand in December.
White Knight Rust Guard Rust Converter has been reformulated to make it safer and easier to use when treating rust. As it dries, the product forms a tough, durable film, which makes priming optional. White Knight Rust Guard Rust Converter is available in 125mL, 500mL and 1L.
The new White Knight Rust Guard Cold Gal Silver product is a heavy duty top coat that contains zinc and has a silver metallic finish. It provides superior corrosion protection for wrought iron, steel and galvanised iron and is available in 100mL, 500mL and 1L tins, as well as a 300gm aerosol.
 Dulux Trade to offer
recycled paint in the UK
AkzoNobel’s Dulux Trade brand (no relation to Dulux Group down under)
has become the first major paint brand in the UK to launch recycled paint.
In partnership
with water, waste and energy management solutions specialist, Veolia UK, Dulux Trade has created a matt emulsion for interior use that’s made from 35% recycled paint, reducing the carbon footprint of each litre of Evolve paint produced by more than 10% compared to non-recycled product.
Dulux Trade says that the initiative is designed to help reduce the millions of litres of paint being sold every year in the UK that end up in landfill or are incinerated.
Branded Dulux Trade Evolve Matt, the recycled paint is made from white paint that’s left over in tins (of any origin, we believe) which Veolia extracts and reprocesses at its recycling centres.
Veolia collects leftover white paint from household waste recycling centres and takes it to a remanufacturing plant, where the paint is refined and filtered before being transported to a manufacturing facility where it is combined with new paint, re- engineered and extensively tested for quality.
Available in matt white only for now, Dulux Trade Evolve was scheduled to become available starting in late October.
