Acrylic emulsion – the harmless master of decor

Acrylic emulsion is just one of the products provided on the construction market. And on modern shelving, the choice of finishing coatings is so great that it is sometimes difficult to decide. In this article, the benefits of using acrylic emulsion Malaysia are discussed. 

Acrylic wall emulsion – everything you need to know

Emulsions are water-based, without the use of toxic chemicals. The paint components are not completely dissolved, but are, as it were, in a suspended state. Therefore, after being applied to the surface, the water evaporates, and the coloring matter remains, forming a thin polymer film.

Acrylic wall emulsions have a number of undeniable advantages:

Thanks to their inherent molecular structure, they breathe;

The level of humidity in the room does not affect the coverage and operation;

Are equally effective for external and internal work;

Coloring is easy and uniform (due to the water-based and thin film formation); dries quickly;

Acrylic emulsion is not dangerous for humans and the environment (does not contain toxic substances), does not cause allergies;

Has excellent fire-fighting characteristics;

Painted surfaces are easy to clean and retain their original appearance for up to 15 years.

Acrylic emulsions come in several varieties. Acryl silicone paint is used in the manufacture of high-quality compounds for outdoor use, does not form foam, and turns into a film at low temperatures. The film has a shine and self-cleaning ability, it is used to create a protective layer for external and internal painting. Styrene acrylic paint is durable and very solid in appearance. Its layer is shiny, one might say glossy. And the properties of the coating are as follows: water resistance, scratch resistance, resistance to alkaline environment. Therefore, styrene acrylic is often used for waterproof coatings. Pure water-based acrylic paint is ideal for decorative and applied work.

There is also a modified acrylic emulsion, its use is typical for work on plaster, foam concrete, brick, chipboard, concrete, wallpaper, gypsum, it is recommended for wet rooms (bathroom, kitchen). It is recommended to cover the walls in several layers, usually 2 or 3. When covering untreated walls for the first time, dilute the paint up to 20% with water, depending on the moisture permeability of the substrate. Allow each coat to dry. If you have to paint old surfaces, it is better not to thin the paint.
