Crown Paints participates in London CPD roadshow

The ‘Effective Paint Specification’ CPD, is being delivered as part of the CPD Road Seminar Tour, taking place at the Royal National Hotel, Bedford Way, WC1H 0DG (Off Russell Square) on Thursday, November 20th.

The Crown Paints’ seminar will run from 11.40am until 12.35pm on the day. Bookings can be made online at or by email

The Construction CPD RoadSeminar has been successfully running for more than 10 years, providing a platform for construction, engineering and architectural professionals to meet, learn about industry changes and developments and discuss opportunities. Free to attend, it offers professionals the opportunity to gain up to six CPD hours.

Usman Akhtar, Crown Paints’ Specification Sector Support Manager, said: “The seminar will explore the properties of paint and the different types of coating and systems. “It will also provide guidelines for choosing the appropriate system, and compare water-borne and solvent-borne technology, VOC reduction and sustainability.”

The CPD will be presented by CPD Accredited presenter David Spicer, who has more than 34 years’ experience in the paint industry. David is Crown Paint’s Specification Technical Manager, and is responsible for technical support on all of the company’s specified products.

As well as the CPD, Crown Paints has a wealth of information to support the specification process. This includes a video from Crown Trade entitled, ‘The Right Paint For The Job,’ at which includes information on effective paints for a variety of situations. More information on Crown Paints can also be found at the new website for specifiers

Developed to make the selection of products and services more effective and easier than ever – the site pulls together a raft of online tools and detailed information in a clear and concise format, to underpin a more selective, sustainable and speedier specification process.

The website also links to Crown Paints’ popular PaintSpec Finder®, which delivers instant and technically-detailed specification plans for exterior and interior projects, through a user-friendly format.

This allows users to filter through a great deal of technical information to pinpoint exactly what products - from the specification brands of Crown Trade, Sadolin and Sandtex Trade - they need for their chosen projects.

PaintSpec Finder® then pulls together the specifications into a report, with a personalised cover sheet showing the customer’s name, the project and the user’s own details, which is then all ready for specifiers to hand to their client or add to their tender or reference documents.
