Interior Paints Versus Exterior Paints

The differences between interior and exterior paint may seem minimal to the human eye, but our interior eggshell and exterior eggshell paints are made up of different components allowing them to suit the varied environments they are exposed to.

The chemistry of interior paints will ensure the paint holds up against scuffs, scratches and marks in hard wearing areas. Whilst exterior paints are formulated to ensure longevity when exposed to the elements.

M&L Exterior Eggshell has been carefully designed to handle humidity, sunlight, temperature changes, fading and mildew. Whilst it might be tempting to use that extra tin of interior eggshell for a project outdoors you may want to think again… the environment-specific ingredients leaves indoor paints at a disadvantage. In little time your outdoor wall is likely to experience integrity issues such as flaking. However, using M&L Exterior Eggshell will resist chalking and cracking with its outstanding durability and moisture control.

The recipe for M&L Interior Eggshell has been created to endure heavy indoor traffic. Our interior paints are long-lasting and will cope with the inevitable wear and tear. Its water resistant properties makes it suitable to withstand regular cleaning and wiping from dirty fingerprints!
