Lights, camera action for Sandtex Trade

Sandtex Trade is producing a series of videos to help specifiers build up a complete picture on exterior painting.

‘This Is Sandtex Trade’ is a series of five videos, which will be launched throughout 2016.

They are presented by Crown Paints Product Trainer Kevin O’Donnell and signpost specifiers to the variety of subjects associated with painting outdoors.

All five videos in the series have been designed to support specifiers looking for more detailed information – and build on the content already provided on Sandtex Trade’s new website  The videos can also be accessed easily with a fully responsive format for all media devices including mobiles, tablets and computers.

The first video is now available to view and starts off the series with the topic of preparation and pre-treatment. It includes a wide-range of information presented in the form of studio demonstrations and work out on site.

Guidance on the main considerations for exterior projects and advice on the Sandtex Trade products that fall within the preparation and pre-treatment category are also featured.

Sharon Smith, Sandtex Trade’s Brand Manager, said: “We’ve worked hard to bring together a wealth of information in an engaging and easy to view style.

“The format is designed to inform specifiers and help them reach the right outcomes for their projects.”

The videos and website build on a wealth of digital content already available from Sandtex Trade including PaintSpec Finder® and the MyRoomPainter™ app.”
