I had some good feedback today from a mate who has tried this paint and I plan to use it on a small job soon. Has anyone else used it?

No its the 1st I've heard of it but I have to say its worth a try, depending on the price obviously. I'm always getting asked by customers which emulsion to use and I just tell them to use trade matt emulsion, no sealer or primer.
However the next time I may just recommend this stuff, just to see what difference it makes.

Havent heard of the stuff til now, if it does what it claims to it may well be worth a look.

I was given a tub by my local Johnstones rep. It's ok stuff, but a lot more expensive than the Lafarge Universal Sealer I generally use, and the opacity is no better.
