Paint Applicators

Paint Pad Applicators

What is a paint pad applicator typically used for?

Paint pad applicators, also known as paint edgers, are used as an alternative to brushes and rollers. Paint applicators are designed to deliver excellent coverage and a smooth, even finish. They are better used with novice painters or when undertaking smaller projects.

Monarch Pad Applicators have an adjustable handle and pole adaptor which allows the paint applicator to be used at any angle or height. They can also be attached to most standard extension poles.

Where can I use a paint applicator?

Paint applicators are best used on smooth surfaces, as the paint pad is less likely to tear or get damaged. However, these applicators aren’t just used to apply paint. A staining pad applicator is also perfect for decks and timber surfaces.

How do I prepare a paint pad applicator before beginning my project?

Just like with a traditional brush or roller, you should rinse the pad thoroughly in water prior to use. This will ensure that your paint or deck stain will go on smoothly and minimise any residue from the paint pad.

Can I use a paint pad on smaller surfaces or edges?

Yes! The Monarch Pad Edger is designed to paint straight lines with ease. It is ideal to use around doors, skirting and windows. The easy grip handle and guide wheels help to control the applicator while keeping paint off the adjacent surface.

The Monarch Corner Applicator has a small pad size for painting inside corners with ease and accuracy.  

What is the best application tool to use to paint a pole?

When painting something with an irregular shape, such as pole, pipes or spindles, the Monarch Painters Mitt is an ideal solution. It is made from a synthetic wool and is suitable to use with all paint types.
