Benefits of Exterior Eggshell Paint

Weather Resistant

This water based exterior paint dries with a UV resistant film, that resists cracking, flaking and peeling over time. This microporous film minimises blistering and leaves your paint fully resistant to fungal and algae growth.


Intelligent Exterior Eggshell can be applied onto new timber without the need for priming and onto previously painted surfaces.

Completely Washable

Like all of our Intelligent Paints, this exterior finish is easy to clean, with excellent water resistance.

Exterior Inspiration

Applying Water Based Exterior Paint

Before applying exterior paint to wooden surfaces, rub down thoroughly with a medium grade sandpaper to provide a smooth surface. Make good any repairs and apply a primer coat of Intelligent Exterior Eggshell to the exposed surface as appropriate. 

We recommend applying 2 coats on top of your initial primer layer. 

When it comes to painting treated surfaces, this exterior finish should not be applied directly onto waxed, wood-stained or varnished wood. Before you begin painting, we recommend complete removal of the existing coating, followed by rubbing down to provide a mechanical key.
