HMG Paints’ Contract Matt Emulsion has been brightening up decorating jobs up and down the country. With fantastic results achievable in just one coat, the product has proven to be a huge hit with HMG distributor, Topdec Decorating Supplies and their customers.

“HMG Contract Matt has great opacity, that improves as the paint dries and leaves a flawless finish”

“The quality of HMG’s British made products is exactly why we sell it in our store at Topdec and I use HMG products, including the Contract Emulsion in my decorating business” Ray Kercher, co-founder, Topdec Decorating Suppliers and owner of Topdec Painters and Decorators. The water-based trade matt emulsion is designed for easy application on interior plaster walls and ceilings and is breathable. Therefore will allow moisture to continue to leave the plaster.

Topdec customers commented on  HMG’s Contract Matt Emulsion, “I have always used Contract Emulsion for mist coating and finishing ceilings, HMG is such a flat finish, it hides all the imperfections in new plaster work. I won’t use anything else” said Paul Wyles, Professional Painter and Decorator. “I have used every brand out there and HMG is the best contract emulsion I have used” continued Jim McGraw, Professional Painter and Decorator.

A professional and tough finish

Over-coated with HMG Paints’ Vinyl Matt Emulsion, a professional and tough finish will be achieved with exceptional coverage and depth of colour. Topdec stock HMG Paints full range of decorative products including the Contract Matt Emulsion available in 10L, woodwork coatings, fence paints and emulsions which can be colour matched to any colour. These products and much more can be purchased online at and through distributor Topdec Decorating Supplies who regularly run deals, so that decorators can stock up on the staple contract emulsion as well as other products.
