On the Bank there are special letters characterizing the glossy base. Digital code indicates the spectrum of the use of this material:

  • 1 – weatherproof;
  • 2 – for internal works;
  • 3 for processing metal products;
  • 4 –for hot water;
  • 5 – for fur and leather;
  • 6 – to paint the products associated with the petroleum products;
  • 7 – resistance to chemical aggressive environments;
  • 8 – heat-resistant;
  • 9 – with electrical insulating properties.

Emulsion paint ↑

They are bred with water, thus it will not dissolve. The binder basis of such materials and the basic dye particles are in an aqueous medium, forming stable emulsion. Once the water is completely evaporated, on the surface a beautiful glossy film of the selected color.

The advantages of emulsion callers:

  1. Efficiency.
  2. Ease of laundering tools and hands.
  3. Sustainability.
  4. Fire safety.
  5. No unpleasant smell.
  6. Speed drying.
The Council! If water-based material intended for painting of metal products is first necessary to perform a primer to avoid corrosion of the metal.

The disadvantages of this material include the fact that emulsion-based is prohibited to put on the surface, which was painted by glutinous structures;

Classification of emulsion materials ↑

All such materials are divided into:

  • acrylic;
  • latex;
  • latex;
  • polyvinyl acetate;
  • silicone;
  • water–dispersion.

Matt emulsion colour gradually washed away and water–dispersion can be repeatedly washed. Latex presents a wide range of colors, they can be used to create three-dimensional effects texture, decorate the surface of walls and ceilings. Get glossy coatings have excellent durability, they will protect the wall or ceiling from the occurrence of fine cracks.

Specifics of acrylic paints ↑

For a glossy acrylic material as a binder used acrylic resin. Such paints have high elasticity, strength, suitable for wooden surfaces.

Attention! Using glossy acrylic paint to cover hairline cracks, the size of which is 0.5 mm.

The disadvantages of such materials:

  • high cost;
  • cannot be used in buildings with damp walls.

Analogues made from acrylic copolymers with less attractive performance.

The advantages of acrylic paints:

  • frost (subject to drying);
  • low gas permeability (to protect the material from corrosion);
  • personal kolerovka;
  • resistance to UV radiation;
  • water vapor permeability;
  • mechanical strength.

Latex paints ↑

In the manufacture of such coating materials applied latex. The prepared materials have excellent water-repellent properties, the walls and ceilings are covered with them, can be washed.


  • brick;
  • drywall;
  • plaster;
  • ceilings.
Attention! Full drying time latex paint is 50 – 60 minutes.


  • most expensive;
  • the lightfastness is less than that of acrylic paints.

Polyvinyl acetate ↑

Polyvinyl acetate paints is considered the most budget. Of performance select:

  • environmentally friendly;
  • high resistance to sunlight;
  • resistance to fats and oils.


  • the gradual washing away by water;
  • loss of gloss in the process of operation.

Silicone paints ↑

As a connecting element in such paints, acts of emulsified silicone resin. After drying, the formed water-repellent surface, permeable to water vapor, the air. Can be applied to any mineral surface that is compatible with mineral and acrylic latex paints.

The disadvantages can be attributed only to the high cost.

Alkyd paints ↑

The binder in them is alkyd resin. The fields of application of such materials:

  • metal surface;
  • wooden ceilings and walls;
  • the plastered surface.


  • water resistance;
  • lightfastness;
  • toxicity;
  • water resistant.

Oil paints ↑

They are made based on linseed oil. The diluents used turpentine, gasoline, white spirit.


  1. in the process of drying is the release of harmful chemicals, it is better to apply a similar paint when performing outdoor work;
  2. after a while the glossy white paint loses its Shine, begins to turn yellow.
