Give your painting a raincoat!

Give your painting a raincoat!

Have you ever considered the paint system of your paint job? In this blog, we are going to discuss this in detail.

A system of painting is the buildup of layers of paint. But the structure of the product can also make a big difference. How about that?

In a paint system, the structure of the paint layers is generally; priming and varnishing -or priming and then pre- and top-coating. But this is not the only way you can preserve wood. You can also look at the raincoat, or breathability. There are 2 types; the sealed and the moisture regulating or breathable paints. These are products in which moisture can move easily. It prevents the accumulation of moisture and protects it from wood rot or sweating.

A high-gloss paint job has a closed system because it has a high reflectance value. In contrast, silk gloss and semi-gloss products are the moisture control paints. These are often used on substrates where moisture is difficult to control. But of course, it can also be a deciding factor for appearance. These exterior paints are all turpentine-based.

However, water-based paints are beginning to make inroads because of the environmentally friendly aspect. In Scandinavia, this is already widely used. And so the question is, when will the turnaround come here? In any case, the paint is ready.
