Bitterly disappointed

published

I painted some wheels in white knight Lace and ended up with micro blisters on all five rims.
The rims had been professionally grit blasted and primed and the were free of wax and grease.
I sprayed a light coat of paint and let that flash off before recoating.

I have not had problems with other brands but am bitterly disappointed in the product.

Unfortunately no one else had the same colour in spray cans.

Sorry White Knight you have lost me as a customer

Purchased in March 2021 for $11.00.

White Knight Squirts Paint & Prime - not recommended

published

I've been using White Knight's Squirts for years, with excellent results. Unfortunately, their new Squirts Paint & Prime is a very poor product in comparison. Not only is it more watery and prone to runs, it also micro blisters as well. I painted some steel brackets which will now have to be sanded off and repainted, using a different brand of paint. Sorry White Knight, after all these years, you've lost me as a customer.

Purchased in November 2021.

Great product.

published

I've been using fiddly bits for years and havent had a problem with coverage.
Paint sediments can settle if sitting on shelf a long time.
Shake more if paint colour seems thin and oily,it usually comes good.
Heat can in the sun or hot water for a while for more even spraying and mixing.
I've just used a new can of purple on my spray paint art,the paint is squirting out from under the nozzle.Even interchangeing the nozzle doesnt fix it.
This is only the 2nd time this has happened in dozens and dozens of cans over years.
I know it will be replaced without question.

Purchased in June 2021 at Mitre 10 for $10.40.

Really good stuff

published

I saw this online somewhere and decided to give an old ikea side table a once over before throwing it out - this worked really well - easy to spray and the colour worked a treat. Looking for other stuff around the house to spray now!

WHITE KNIGHT is the real deal. AAA RATING for PLASTIC METAL

published

im using real WHITE KNIGHT paint 2018 series.at $8 can,squirts is best bang for your bucks in a can.black,grey or fluro,it sticks like super-glue to plastic or old metal with minimum preparation.fast drying and does not scratch or peel on plastic or metal.dulux is over-rated.not sure how anyone could give a 1 star rating,must be using 10 year old spray can.

Doesn't do what it claims to do

published

Spend the extra $4-5 and buy Dulux or Rustoleum. This product DOES NOT adhere to the stated materials and coverage is extremely poor, even on a pre-primed surface (ignoring the fact this is a prime+paint product. Waste of money. I would never buy this product again. My piece of furniture is spoiled now, given such a shabby finish.

Best spray paint we have found for our projects

published

We have had nothing but trouble trying to paint mdf and ply especially red and green but discovered Squirts recently. It is by far the best paint we have used for these projects. Excellent coverage, gloss and drying time. I would recommend these paints with the addendum that painting mdf still needs a primer, the ply doesn't.

Shocking nozzle and paint blotches/runs!

published

I purchased this in Gloss Black to paint my 2Nd hand outdoor setting. It was impossible to control. Couldn't release the nozzle between passes as it was too hard to press and releasing meant having to stop to put enough pressure back on the nozzle. I ended up with shocking runs and blotches even though I tried to counteract it by passing quickly. The paint comes out too quick. A couple of days later I tried to rub dirt off from the rain and the rubbing left scratches. Don't waste your money on this product!

Just Garbage

Paint exploded out of seal at the top of the can

published

Just had a brand new can of blue paint explode out of the seal at the top of the can there is paint all over my husband and the pavers downstairs . Not happy

Can leaks paint everywhere.

published

Spraycan nozzle design leaks paint everywhere. Will not buy again unless I know fault is rectified (shame Bunnings for selling this product as is!) If any form of quality control existed this problem would not have arisen.

Black hand...yuk

published

Really disappointed.
Nozzle must have been faulty because as well as spraying, it leaked under the spray button all over my hand and the object.
I will return can to Bunnings tomorrow, but that doesn’t salvage the project - or my Matt Black fingernails.

Utter Crap!!!

published

I've been using Squirts spray paint for 15 PLUS years, even spraying a complete car in my youth. This new formula is absolutely crap, it runs like you wouldn't believe, won't harden properly and is over all just CRAP!!!. Good one White Knight as you've lost another loyal customer, as it looks like I'm on a long list.

Worst paint ever

published

I have had to remove this paint job 2 times as it does not harden and dry properly. The slightest bit too much on a single application and, unlike other spray paints, no matter how long you leave it, it will not cure. Unusable rubbish. Never again.

Utter trash. Used to be so good

published

Never cures, sticks to itself if the two surfaces of the same paint come into contact. Caused me so many issues with my DT project, I just want to say a very directed F*** you to the people who changed the formula, be it Dulux paints or whatever.

Squirts takes a quality nosedive, now down with the rubbish brands.

published

I have been using Squirts paint for around twelve years to paint model engines and have been extremely happy with it and the results produced, with the old product I never had any issues with petrol spilling over it, always wiped off ok with no damage, but now with the new formula if petrol spills on it the paint just softens and wipes off, also the new nozzle give an orange peel effect instead of the great surface finish of the old product. You have lost me as a customer, such a shame to see a well respected brand ruined for the sake of cost cutting.

Changed product rubbish

published

I have been using Squirts to paint my road racing motorcycles and have had results that shock people they look so good, and are so durable. First time I used a matte black can with the new nozzle it smelt funny and wasn't any where near as good as the old matte finish. The gloss colours I have now used with the new nozzle also are rubbish with fish eyes appearing on the same surface with the same prep I have used before, and paint that rain drops at 180km/h removed like big stone chips...Mt fairings painted with the old paint are still great after 2 years racing...Bloody shame another brand ruined by buying cheap chinese rubbish...And worse the shameful attitude of ignorance...You have lost me

clashed

published

Color was not matching cap grey when a white paint emerged. it was quite disturbing a product that wouldn't suit any professional application when a color matches. Why they don't provide an elephant grey that was standard color in the industry made years ago.it is going to cost me to rectify re application of paint to start at beginning.

Questions & Answers

Andrew W.asked

Thanks for caring about your customers and replying to our questions NOT!
Has anyone from the company actually bothered to Google their own brand and see the reviews getting written here? I see many more annoyed customers that have been having similar problems to what i wrote in my review last year. The list of annoyed customers is growing and your sales must be going downhill. Does anyone care about this business? Why not change back to the original formula before it's too late? Whatever you gained by changing the formula I doubt it has worked well for business. I'm still left waiting for answers and still haven't found a decent replacement paint. Thanks for caring.

I caved and bought a name brand, I think it was Dulux. Maybe you do still get what you pay for

I've tried Dulux and it's not as good as the old Squirts was for a number of reasons in my opinion. If I could find a brand that is as good I'd make the switch no problem but I'm still trying to find one. The stuff at Masters is pretty poor as well. I can't believe how many different formulas and thinners there are. I think they are all switching over to safer or cheaper formulas or better for the environment whatever. If only they used the paint everyday or at least ask someone who does before they make these stupid decisions without warning us.

I'm getting on ok with British paints from Bunnings. A few colours are a bit dodgy, but on the whole, way better than squirts.
