Did you know that there are different types of paint available, and each of them are recommended only on certain areas or surfaces? Are you also aware that there are different finishes available for you to choose from?
Primer – although not technically considered a paint but applied in the same way, primers are vital in a painting project because it functions as an
adhesive to make paint adhere better and provides a smooth surface for easier painting, and also acts as a base for a new paint color.
Whitewash – comprised of powdered chalk or slaked lime, water, and size and is used to whiten walls.
Concrete or cement paint – water-based paint that has cement as its other base and is used for concrete walls that need good water and dirt resistance.
Bituminous paint – consist of coal tar or asphalt bitumen and is alkaline-resistant, which makes it best for structures that get frequently exposed to water, as well as exterior iron and metal works.
Epoxy paint – gives off a shiny finish and is commonly used as floor covering on commercial and industrial structures.
Luminous paint – also known as glow in the dark paint and is used for signboards and signs, especially on roads. It can be either fluorescent, radioactive or self-luminous, or phosphorescent paint.
Rubber paint – water-based paint that can stand harsh conditions and water exposure, making them perfect for pools.
Metallic paint – suitable for metallic surfaces, it contains metals like aluminum, bronze, copper, and stainless steel that gives its metallic finish.
Aluminum paint – also has a metallic finish but its silvery surface makes it reflective, which is perfect for retaining heat in hot air and water tanks and pipes.
Textured paint – paint mixed with grains like sand and gypsum that gives a rough feel when applied, which is a good alternative to wallpaper and is perfect for hiding flaws on walls.
