Spring is the ideal season to renovate the house, especially if the idea is to do some painting work.
In this case, in addition to colours, finishes, and combinations, it is essential to choose the most suitable paint. Water or oil? To choose, it is important to know the pros and cons of each one.
First of all, it is important to know that water-based paints are formulated on the basis of 100 percent acrylic emulsion and pigments that are highly resistant to light. They are characterized by their great flexibility and high gloss retention.
After many years of research and technological advances, these paints have achieved a level of quality and characteristics that benefit application on a wide range of surfaces.
-Since environmental care is also important, it is important to know that solvent-based products have 60 to 70 percent volatile organic components, while water-based products have only 7 to 10 percent-
There are several reasons why water-based paint has become so popular among professionals and amateurs:
The first one is fast drying: This type of paint usually takes between 4 and 6 hours to dry, allowing several coats to be applied and obtaining good results in a short time.
Softer smell: These paints, when diluted with water, give off a milder smell than solvent-based paints. Furthermore, after painting, the smell disappears more quickly than that of other products.
Different finishes: Water-based paints can be found mainly in three finishes: matt, gloss, and satin. The first is suitable for concealing imperfections; glossy paints are easy to clean with a cloth and soap and water, while satin paints are more delicate and washable.
