    Does the customer specifically want a satin finish @Painter16 ? The Low Lustre is a nice finish if they’ve got any of that in stock.

    If you're in the market for an alternative Futura Aqua 80 by Teknos has worked well for me - no lifetime guarantee, but hey! you can't have everything. :biggrin:

    Good morning all,
    It’s hot, hope you are able to stay cool somehow.
    I felt it necessary following the comment comparing us to the now defunct Mythic Paints to update you on how we are managing with stocks.
    A bit of market context first. Since the recovery from the global economic meltdown in 2007 it’s been relatively straight forward to forecast future volumes. However, since March I doubt any global paint company will have experienced volume mix changes like we have seen over the last few months. It’s something we are all working through. Some products have seen demand increase by at least 500% and some have seen drops of the same amount. Aura Exterior has seen significant increased demand which we were not able to forecast. To be fair to us it’s one of the few products we have had stock challenges with.
    The team are working round the clock both here and in the US to meet the demands of the new volume changes we are seeing. Our service to you is our number 1 priority.
    Aura Ext base 1 is now back in stock and we are ramping up stocks as fast as we can as we forecast this product to continue to be in very high demand through the summer.
    We will find our feet working with the new volumes and I appreciate your patience as we get our stock profiles in the right shape.

    Craig

    Bit too hot for outsides. Don't need aura exterior, instead could I have 50 quarts of aura bath and spa for the indoor swimming pool. :jester:
