TYPES OF PAINTS

Most paints come with a base option of oil or latex. Your decision will be based on several factors such as what surface you will be painting and what room you will be applying the paint to.

OIL PAINT
* * * * * * Better Abrasion resistance Higher gloss More durable then latex Smoother application than latex Seals stains well Harder to clean up after using oil based paint

LATEX PAINT
* More popular because It's easier to clean up, less odor, and overall easier to manage * Water Based * Fast drying * Easy to apply * Resists yellowing, fading and mildew * Good for metal surfaces * Best bet for kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms

EMULSION WATER-BASED PAINTS


An emulsion type water paint must have a high solid concentration and a small particle size which can be prepared at a high efficiency by using a relatively compact apparatus and relatively small amounts of a solvent and water. Interior & exterior emulsion water-based paints are appreciated for being weather resistant, washable, u v resistant and excellent decorative coatings applied on the exterior of the buildings. These are available in interior grade also in different color shades. Features include:*Water proof. *Washable anti graffiti type. *U V resistance. *Weather resistant. *Aesthetic Coating. Exterior emulsion is specially formulated coating for protection of exteriors from polluted climate & rough weather conditions. It is a 100% Acrylic Resin with selected grades of additives, pigments and chemicals that ensure best possible protection. This exterior emulsion does not pick dust or fades & peels off thus preventing the structure from fungus / algae growth. The paint contains micronized pigments and extenders. A process for the continuous production of an emulsion type water paint, which comprises feeding an organic solvent solution comprising a carboxyl group-containing acrylic resin component, an epoxy resin component and a component of a curing agent resin for the epoxy resin independently or in combination, together with an aqueous solution of ammonia or an amine, to an in-line mixer of the first stage, mixing the solution under compression in the mixer to form a w/o type emulsion, feeding the w/o type emulsion together with water to an inline mixer of the second stage, mixing the w/o type emulsion and water in the mixer to effect the phase inversion to an o/w emulsion, and withdrawing the formed o/w type emulsion quantitatively.

An emulsion type water paint, which comprises a carboxyl groupcontaining acrylic resin component, an epoxy resin component and a resol type phenolic resin component as coating film-forming components, wherein the carboxyl group of the acrylic resin component is present in the form of an ammonium salt or amine salt, the coating film-forming components are present in the form of o/w type emulsion particles, and at least 30 mole % of the total methylol groups of the resol type phenolic resin component are alkyl-etherified. In this production method, it is preferred that the etherified product of the resol type phenolic resin component be a butyl-etherified product, and especially good results can be obtained if the resol type phenolic resin comprises 10 to 98% by weight, particularly 20 to 95% by weight, of a mono-nuclear or bi-nuclear low-molecular-weight product. Acrylic Emulsions for Water Based Paints are specifically used for interior and exterior decorations of walls. These emulsions are provided in three ranges VAM, Styrene and Acrylic. It adds smooth finish and thus are excellent water repellant. These emulsions hold better color retention capability and can be washed. Moreover they give excellent performance in dry or humid climate. A vast range of Acrylic Emulsion Paints are used in different places like industrial, commercial and residential. The acrylic paints are formulated using various opacity pigments & lab-tested stabilizing chemicals. These impart a beautiful & hygienic cover to the interiors. These are specifically formulated to fulfill varied demands of interior walls. Acrylic Emulsion Paint is highly acknowledged for its durability and it adheres to all type of wall surfaces and gives a matt finish property.

GLOSS PAINTS
The term `ENAMEL is normally associated with paints that have some gloss to the finish. Enamels are formulated with higher concentrations of resins as they are intended to be subjected to more wear and tear.

LEVELS OF GLOSS
The sheen of a paint is the amount of light reflected by the surface of a paint finish. There are 4 basic sheens- Flat, Satin, Semi gloss and Gloss.

FLAT
They exhibit non-reflective properties providing a matte finish. This finish helps hide surface imperfections and is normally used for ceilings and walls in areas not subjected to a lot of wear and tear-dinning rooms and bedrooms not used by small children.

SATIN
It is also known as eggshell finish, provides a soft luster sheen similar to that of an eggshell. A satin finish provides a harder surface finish which is more durable and more stain resistant than a flat finish. This durability makes satin paint a good choice for walls in childrens rooms, hallways, stairways and family rooms.

SEMI GLOSS
They are very durable, they are easier to clean, and more stain resistant than satin finish paints. Semi gloss paints are most often used on heavy wear surfaces or areas that are frequently cleaned such as kitchens and bathrooms. Semi gloss paint is also used on wood trim and cabinets.

GLOSS
It is harder, more durable, more stain resistant paint finish. It is easier to clean than all the other paint finishes. Gloss finishes generally make surface imperfections more noticeable. Gloss finishes are the best choice for heavy wear areas like kitchen, bathrooms, furniture, cabinets, floors, stairs, handrails, high traffic doors and trim. The different range of enamel are utilized in coating various kind of metals, wooden products in order to ensure high level of durability.

TEXCOTE PAINTS
Tex-Cote has properties that make it 10 times thicker than normal house paint. It protects a multitude of surfaces, including wood, stucco, brick, hard-plank and metal siding. Tex-Cote claims to last for 40 years and has a lifetime warranty. The paint has a guarantee not to chip, flake, peel, fade or chalk, and resists fire and mildew.

Tex-Cote protects against all of these and therefore will add value to the house. In addition, as of January 2011, Tex-Cote claims an added value of 21.9 percent in energy savings toward cooling costs. Textured or smooth elastomerics may be applied to masonry substrates, smooth and split-face concrete block, poured-in-place, precast, tilt wall - or stucco. These surfaces are cracked or inevitably are going to crack. Texcoating textured or smooth elastomeric coatings have the necessary property of ionization that allows them to bridge cracks and stretch up to 600% of their original size. Thermal change can have a tremendous impact on the movement of a structure. What looks like a hairline crack during elevated Basic painting, according to temperatures can open to three painting contractors and Realtors, or four times in width when adds value by protecting surfaces cooled. Quality elastomeric against UV rays, mildew and water coatings also have the memory damage. which allows them to return to their original size during thermal movement, crack shrinkage or when ground settlement occurs. Textured or smooth elastomeric wall coatings can form the bridge that keeps moisture out.
