Alternative to Sikkens XD

I’m on the look out for an alternative to Sikkens XD I been using it for the last couple of years and love the finish. But it can be hardwork to use, any suggestions?

Sikkens AZ is a strong paint.

Or a long shot, try sign writers enamel.

Have a look at the Global Paints i tested earlier in the year. Superb gloss levels and very easy to use.

Both Oil based finishes from Holland - Brilliant coat SB and SPU Gloss.

No but just had a look there website and i’m going to try some TIKKURILA paints. Order going in this week. Thanks Andy

Good call Andy.
My system for exterior work is Otex primer followed by Unica Akve on windows and doors, fascia etc.
Valtti Opaque on weather boards. Easy to use and a great finish.

Ordered, looking foward to trying it next week. Thanks Again.

Undercoated some fascias and soffits today and was very impressed with the Otex primer. As you said easy to use and drys very quick to give a lovely flat finish.

Using Water based Unica Akva is a great 3 coat system can be done in a day as well.

Were can I get it from? had a look at Holmans and couldn’t find it?

This might help.


I get mine from a distributor up here but it comes from Edinburgh.
