Gone are the days when the choice of colors was simple and there were only two options on the counter in the store. Now everything has changed. Today on the shelves you can see many types of paints. Also, a variety of colors are available. And if there is still no suitable color, then you can buy a color scheme or tint the paint by choosing the desired color and shade in a special palette, but this can only be done if the store has special equipment.
Paints by appointment are for interior and exterior. Paints also differ in the type of substrates on which they can be applied. So, there are paints that only paint concrete; there are paints that are used only for painting metal; There are paints designed for painting wood. Also, there are universal paints that can be used to paint almost any surface.
Also, the paint is classified depending on its toxicity, adhesion, hygroscopicity, ability to withstand temperature extremes, strength. According to their composition, paints are alkyd, acrylic, oil, epoxy, silicone.
Alkyd paint. Paints of this type have good adhesion. But, since they are toxic, they are rarely used indoors. But for painting metal on the street, this type of paint is the best fit.
Acrylic paint is resistant to high temperatures, has anti-corrosion properties, non-toxic, suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
Oil paint. Paint of this type practically does not resist corrosion, does not tolerate high temperatures. Also, such paint does not resist external influences well.
Epoxy paint has high adhesion, does not absorb moisture, and is resistant to external influences. But it should be noted that epoxy paint does not like high temperatures and ultraviolet light.
Silicone paint for metal processing. Such paint is suitable only with special additives. But, it should be said that silicone paint is well applied to almost any material, tolerates large temperature fluctuations, and resists the occurrence of fungi.
