Welcome to the Alloypaints.com News/Blog page, here we hope to post details of new products available on the site, post tips and pointers on product use, and just generally keep you upto date with our quest for alloy wheel paints/consumables world domination :).

After getting a better deal from our couriers we are now able to offer FREE POSTAGE on orders over £100, reduced from £175. This is pre vat and will automaticlly be removed in the "cart" section of Alloypaints.com. We are hoping to reduce this even further in the future as we get busier and are able to get a better rate. 

New products listed this week include Wet & Dry sanding paper, 50 sheets per pack, many grades available, and also 2k White Gloss , 1.5 ltr kits.

Starting week of 14th Oct we are able to offer our Standard Thinner, Panel Wipe and 2K Thinner in 1 ltr sizes. Look out for them on the site.

New in this month are some great 6" / 150mm air palm sanders , at only £39.99 they are great value, come with the backing pad included and are perfect for our range of 150mm gold discs, at £6.99 for a box of 50. (Sorry, that sounds a bit like an ad from Iceland, LOL)
