As distributors of the UK’s largest painting manufacturers we can handle every type of painting service you might need – whether the job is internal or external, planned or cyclical maintenance, specialist or historical property redecoration. We know that the right preparation methods and the right industrial paint coatings can help your property to withstand the harshest conditions.

We've supplied hundreds of buildings of all shapes and sizes, from retail outlets and universities to factories and pools, finding the right approach for each project and each budget. Our industrial coating products have provided anti-bacterial coatings in hospitals, to fire-proofing in public spaces, including cementitious and fibrous spraying, heat resistant and intumescent coatings. We are able to offer either telephone discussions or site visits to discuss the most suitable products taking into account the location, and climate that the building will be subject to. Whether your project is coastal where it will suffer from strong winds containing salt that could attack the coatings, an offshore structure (both being classified as C5M), through to sheltered inland areas (C1 classification) where UV degradation and attack from pollution generated by vehicles is a prime consideration that needs to be factored for, Promain are able to offer a solution. For internal application environments we can offer hygiene coatings for hospitals, breweries, laboratories etc and we are also able to offer advice on anti slip and slip resistance paint coatings as well as fibreglass sheeting used on applications such as footbridges, steps, and general site safety be it internal or external.

With paints as specialised as we provide, there are many occurrences when a site visit is required by one of our technicians to access substrates, environments and processes required when providing paints or coatings. We regularly visit sites during specification to ensure any architectural, fire ratings, or material demands are met.
Various products in our portfolio come with guarantees upon qualification via site visit prior to assess substrate and practices. One of our more popular warranty based systems is Rust-Oleum’s Noxyde which depending on the area of cover can protect the site for up to 15 years.
