QWhat is the difference between solvent-based and water-based paints?
Water-based paints are diluted with water, while solvent-based paints are diluted with solvents like Mineral Turpentine Oil (MTO). Emulsions are water-based paints while enamels, lustre and matt finishes are solvent-based paints. Emulsions look better on walls and are ideal for drawing rooms. Solvent-based paints are ideally suited for kitchens and bathrooms since they are water-resistant. Enamels are used on wood and Metals.
QWhat are primers and putty?
Primers and putties are applied on the paintable surface before the final paint is applied. Before you apply putty or primer you have to sand the wall with sandpaper. Putty is a kind of paste prepared for applying on walls to fill in any minor dents or to level the surface. Since putty is absorbent, a coat of paint applied directly over it would lead to the paint being absorbed unevenly, leading to patches. A primer layer on top of the putty is a must. It takes away the unevenness caused by putty and the final paint comes out perfect. Thus, you get both protection and good finish.
