Dulux Wash&Wear Matt

There's no need to compromise washability or durability for a stylish matt finish: with Dulux Wash&Wear Matt users get both. By minimising light reflection, Matt helps to reduce the appearance of imperfections in the substrate. And because it's made with the latest 101 Barrier Technology, most surface marks will wipe off with a wet cloth.

  • Machine tint to a wide range of colours from vivid white, deep, ultra deep and extra bright bases
  • Sophisticated Matt sheen level
  • Washability performance comparable with other low sheen paint brands
