Disadvantages of the material:

  • the you have cannot be used at temperatures below +5 degrees.

Operating parameters water emulsion of a mixture of ↑

Prior to the acquisition of similar compounds, pay attention to its technical characteristics:

  • viscosity;
  • composition;
  • expiration date;
  • maximum flow;
  • the proportion

In such a mixture shall include the following components:

  • filler;
  • latex;
  • antiseptic;
  • thickener.

The average consumption in the painting of walls and ceiling is 150-200 ml per square meter. The number of layers is determined by the absorbent material, which is applied water-based paint.

Viscosity is an assessment of the degree of dilution of dye to water. To determine this index is used viscometer.

The average time for full drying of the surface of the ceiling and walls is 18 to 24 hours, depends on the humidity of the air, and the air temperature.

Application of vodoemulsionki ↑

Using such structure it is possible to choose the perfect color for walls, ceiling, pick up the texture of the coating. There are several technologies for applying such mixtures, the choice depends on the coating conditions. Using the textured roller, you can get the unique result is the original surface. In order to cover for a long time pleasing their aesthetic appearance, adhere to certain rules relating to the technology of drawing on the walls and ceiling of vodoemulsionki.

Latex paint for walls and ceilings, and application technology

  1. A preparatory stage. It is necessary to eliminate all irregularities, to use for this putty. Once the walls are prepared, they applied plaster finish, you can begin to paint. Near the painted wall clears the space, remove all items to a distance of not less than 1.5 metres. The floor is covered with a protective coating. First to the painted surface apply a coat of primer. It provides reliable surface adhesion and vodoemulsionki. Due to the good absorbency of the primer, the surface is aligned, the paint will go without lumps and smudges. Wait until the primer is completely dry, yet is not formed on the wall of the protective film (4-6 hours).
  2. In DIY stores offer thick latex mixture. To finish was matte and uniform, latex paint diluted with water, thoroughly mixed.
    The Council! As auxiliary attachments for proper mixing use low rpm electric drill, planting her head in the form of a mixer.
  3. In cases when you plan to build walls textured pattern, no need to dilute with water water-based paint, suitable thick consistency.
  4. Mixing paint is directly in front of the painting. To get the desired color you need a special color. One or several callers added to the original paint in small portions, mix thoroughly until you get the desired shade. In many large construction supermarkets have a special installation designed for the selection of water-based paints.

Attention! Recommend process changes shades of water-based mixtures to professionals. After drying, the shade will change manually to get two doses of the same color will not work.

For painting you will need the following tools:

  • the construction of the brush;
  • rollers;
  • sponge.

How to wash latex paint from the walls and ceiling ↑

It is desirable to remove the old layer before the layer of plaster so that the new material is firmly attached to the surface. There are several ways to remove the old vodoemulsionki.

Method one: ↑

  1. Acrylic washing you have can be removed using the spatula and grinding machine. During operation there will be a lot of dust, so use goggles and a respirator. In order not to spread dust around the apartment, doorways, close the plastic wrap.

Method two: ↑

  1. Prepare a solution of starch paste, either buy PVA glue.
  2. Treated like part of the surface of the walls or ceiling. Fresh glue glue paper or newspaper.
  3. After the glue dries, with a coat of paint is torn off the paper (newspaper).

Third method: ↑

  1. On the ceiling surface, apply ready on the surface, paint.
