Emulsion paint consists of small pieces of polymer into which the pigments are mixed. The pieces are immersed in water, and then the pieces fuse together as the paint dries, forming a layer of paint on the wall. The polymer cannot be resuspended in water until this occurs, which is why a water-based emulsion paint cannot be cleaned back from the wall after it has dried.
InsOpaint Interior acrylic paint provides the best combination between exceptional consistency and peak performance. The texture quality is simply amazing and very beautiful after the paint has been applied and dried. The emulsion coating, along with an amazing mix of thermal insulation and breathability, has notably superior texture, finish, and very low VOC amounts. This greatly eliminates the issues of condensation, if not totally removing them. Maximum thermal insulation is provided by the application of at least two layers of our acrylic paint on walls and ceilings. InsOpaint has been independently checked in compliance with UK, EU, and ASTM standards around the world.

An emulsion is a steady suspension of an oil state in a water state. We know why oils do not mix with water. Thus, some surface-active agents are applied to improve the stability of oil suspension in water. In the case of acrylic paints, the acrylic resin (Oily Phase) along with the finely ground pigments found therein are retained in a water suspension. For this reason, certain surface-active agents called emulsifiers are used.
Water is usually available at around 50 to 60 per cent in emulsion paints. In the shape of pigments, the rest are the gritty sections and the solids.
It should be stated, though, that the mass of the pigments is higher than that of water and, hence, the weight ratio of water is lower.
When this colour is applied to a coat, the water evaporates, leaving the stubborn acrylic paste on the surface. In the case of a thermoplastic acrylic resin, just through solvent evaporation alone, the drying of acrylic paint may occur. Nevertheless, modern developments have introduced self-connecting acrylic polymers and cross-connecting agents in a 3D network to dry the acrylic resin.
This leads to the cross-linking of the acrylic binder, which renders the paint coat sturdy and evidence of scratching. As for the issue of whether it is just imposed on the walls, the following factors need to be taken into account.
In the acrylic emulsion, there is more than 50 per cent water and it is more diluted to have a cleaner flow. Getting so much water in it, it is imperative that the water will flow out of the system faster after it is applied. If the water remains for a long time, the paint will not dry and it will sag, or the acrylic resin will not be exposed to cross-linking. So, the walls and panels of Plaster of Paris or Cement are the best suitable surface for this.
Most homeowners find it successful and fitting for their house. The application of Emulsion Paint on walls has many advantages as it is easy to clean and maintain and it prevents the powerful odours that come from oil-based paints.
Types Of Emulsion Paints
There are different types of Emulsion Paints
- Vinyl matte
- Vinyl silk
- Vinyl soft sheen
Every type of finish with Emulsion Paint has its own benefit. The matte Paint Emulsion helps to conceal the imperfection on the walls. Vinyl soft sheen Emulsion Paint helps have longer lifespan. Compared to the other two, it is among the list of extremely resilient materials that are useful in maintaining high humidity environments. Although when it comes to glossiness, the imperfection on the walls continues to improve and draw attention.
The emulsion paint surface is tough and can be quickly washed with water to clean up. The colour or consistency of emulsion paint would not be influenced by exposure to sunlight.
Various implementation methods such as brushing, spraying, dipping, flow, and roller can be used.
The emulsion paint is less smelly and – anti-inflammable, so it non-hazardous for people.
For ceilings and walls, emulsion paint is suitable since it is dense and simple to add. They are humidity-tolerant and thus easy to use in steamy environments such as kitchens and bathrooms.
The best thing about emulsion paints is that it is very easy to clean your home after the painting is done. If you see a few drops of paint here and there on your floor, you can just wipe it off with a wet cloth and you are done. On the other side oil-based paints leave stains hard to clean all over the place. In Thermilate Technologies InsOpaint Interior Emulsion Paint, all these benefits are present and that is why you should use this Emulsion Paint and let the paint do its job while you enjoy its beauty.
