Ever since the Ancient Britons painted themselves with woad for protection from the weather, the use of paint as a protective coating has continued to expand. Today the range of products is so wide that only a few can here be selected for description, as a general guide to the properties and types of paint to be found among those marketed under thousands of different trade names and reference systems by Britain's 600 or more manufacturers. This article therefore seeks to give representative examples of the types of paint now available.
