More to painting than meets the eye


There's something to be said for saying what you do

For thousands of years, humans have used paints for  decorative purposes. Whether used to adorn the walls of caves, pottery, or the human body, paint has a long and colorful history.

While today's paints are complex chemical formulations, paints and other coatings continue to serve both decorative and protective purposes. They provide color, as well as a barrier to rain and other elements.

 

The process of preparing and painting a surface is not complicated, but specific principles must be adhered to. The surface must be clean and free of any loose particles for proper adhesion. The coating must be applied to a specific thickness and under specific conditions in order to properly cure and achieve maximum durability. The specifics will vary from coating to coating.

Some of the types of coatings we apply are: paints (both latex and alkyd), elastomerics, water repellents and sealers, stains, varnishes, and polyurethanes.

Paints are the most common type of coating; therefore, most of the information contained in this booklet pertains to paint.

Paints are composed of four ingredients:  
     -resin
     -solvent
     -pigment
     -modifiers


The type and quantity of the resin in a paint willGlobepainter determine its durability. For example, vinyl resins are less durable than acrylic resins. Both are used in latex paints.

The solvent is the liquid in which the resins and other ingredients are suspended. In essence, evaporation of the solvent is what causes the paint film to dry.

Water is the solvent for latex paints, while petroleum distillates are the solvent used for alkyd paints. Pigments impart color to the paint.
Modifiers are used to give the paint specific application or curing characteristics. For example, modifiers are used to make a paint more brushable or to improve its leveling characteristics.
