    I having a hard time trying to find the best gloss paint to recommend to customer to paint wall so that we have best adhesion for wrapping. Can anyone recommend a particular paint brand that will work best?

    Hi Mark,
    Does it have to be gloss?
    I’ve always recommended dulux diamond hard eggshell.
    Firstly because you have a far easier time lining prints as the tack isn’t instant and can be repositioned.
    Second because it’s cheaper and easier to get a good finish with than gloss.

    This is from years of experience working with media ranging from the cheapest of the cheap right up to ww309, never once have I had an issue with adhesion

    You need to seal the wall with a good all round block out

    We use Zinsser bulls eye 123 primer sealer

    you could get a 3m wall test kit so you know what you are dealing with.
