Choosing Enamels or Acrylics for exterior use

We would generally recommend the use of acrylics in exterior situations. As enamels age they become very brittle and chalky and therefore have a tendency to crack and flake off the surface. Acrylics, however, retain their colour better, do not chalk to any great extent and do not become brittle, giving a longer lasting, more durable paint finish.

The greater flexibility and UV protection of Dulux Weathershield is the preferred option. Dulux guarantees Weathershield for as long as you live in your house. That’s the Dulux Promise.
