Let’s Talk About Choosing Paint

During the renovation and decoration works, we often use the paint. But do we know on what basis should choose the paint? Standing in the store, the customer is lost in conjecture why a painting is within the allowable and price other strikes with its sky-high? Yes, and how to determine how oil paint is better emulsion or vice versa? Of course, such details are not clear enough for "newbies" for repair. So, basically always such Buyers want to buy something cheaper and cause a "cheap" in several layers to achieve a more or less good results. With poposchyu paint runs most repair work: painting walls, ceilings, roofing, etc. The purpose of this article – to teach the customer to choose the paint not only on price but on quality.

The first step is to figure out what is in the paint, and then repair the walls or roof repair. The composition Paint consists of four main components: the dye, solvent, resin and additive. In the cheaper paints more solvent, but less dye and resin. The percentage of cheap paint and solvent water reaches 70%, that means: after the application of solvent and water evaporate, which makes the paint layer is very thin. This explains the repeated application of paint to the surface to produce the desired result. Therefore, it is better not to save on the cost of paint, yes, and in his time. Producers are divided into two types of paint: water-based (latex paint) and white spirit or alkyd-based (oil paints).

Latex are the most popular because they are environmentally friendly, quick and without odor. The paint on the surface stays very long, as when painting a dense film, which also protects the surface from harmful mold and fungus. Treating surfaces covered with latex paint, water-based, can be a simple soap and water. Also a big advantage to this type of paint is the ability to use virtually any surface. Less popular alkyd paints. More often than alkyd paint used to color the wearing surfaces, which susceptible to external influences. Alkyd paints dry longer than latex, but on the surface after staining with no traces of the brush, which is certainly a positive development. The cost of alkyd paints much higher than latex, and also alerted that such paints are flammable, so using them is better to limit. Not pleased with the strong smell of toxic paint after that long time passes. When choosing a paint should pay attention to its luster. Usually, all the colors are divided into high-gloss, matte and semi-matt. Glossy paint is seldom used for coloring home environments. Most of them used to isolate certain elements on the surface. Mat with little or no light, so it is better than the other types of paint hides the various "nuances" to the surface. So often it is used for painting rough surfaces. Honed paints are mainly used for color spaces that require frequent and intensive cleaning is sufficient (eg, bathroom, kitchen). Cleaning of surfaces, painted matt paint, resulting in thinning of the layer, but the semi paint prevents thinning of the surface during the cleansing of impurities.

Ceiling Window

The windows can be done either in the walls and doors. The area of the bath window may vary depending on the pop-up form, but usually it does not exceed 5-7% of floor area. Have a window so that he could look out of steam or washing. As with the double and single frames for the windows in the bath should have a double sealed glazing (glass on a single frame are attached at both sides). Make the window in the window is difficult, although it greatly facilitates the airing of the bath. In brick baths make better window of glass. So as they provide a soft ambient light, require no curtain, more hygienic and durable than conventional ones. Sealed fog ceiling and a yellow milky color is used for artificial lighting.

To ensure ventilation above the top shelf make the vent – a small rectangular or circular hole in the wall. It closes a removable cap of soft material padded chocks with a handle or a wooden sliding shutter. C For the same purpose in the bottom of the door or near the stove-heater at a height of 25-50 cm from the floor make air inlet vent. He, too, should close the damper or valve. Making the shelves in the steam bath – is the next step finish. If the room is spacious, the shelves can be 2 or 3. The widest make the top, which is usually steamed, lying down, bottom make a little narrower. Have shelves one above the other, or the letter "G" (the latter is an appropriate option in the baths with combined steam washer and to save space). To the top shelf, it was convenient to bathe sitting distance from the ceiling must be at least 115-120 cm, and between the upper and middle shelf – 40 cm bottom shelf usually do approximately at the height of 20-25 cm from the floor.

Plastic Windows

Hollow panels with ridges, so-called cell wall panels may also serve as a finishing material for the design of slopes. Air layer gives some insulating properties, which means that winter will not freeze slopes. A further warming of the house, for example, mineral wool, will completely eliminate the phenomenon of condensation and protect opening your windows from freezing, and such a thing as impartial mold and cracks on the painted surface. Besides, this kind of slope, unlike their counterparts there is a clear advantage in the form of a flexible casing, to hide the attachment of the slope to the wall, as well as the ability to remove the re-installation during the next repair. An additional advantage of cell slopes are their affordable prices that make up the competition even their predecessors, plaster, and the possible installation when you install windows (about two hours on a single window) – this type of slope gives a head start to other kinds of trim windows. The porous plates of foamed PVC have a homogeneous structure and low thermal conductivity. Used for slope plate thickness from 4 to 10 mm. As a rule, the thickness determines the cost of panels, and, therefore, furnish a whole, but in any case, the lack of this type of finishing material: the high cost of the material.

And, of course, a choice of two options for consumers textures – matte and glossy. Attractive appearance, ease of operations make foamed PVC attractive to consumers, but do not forget about its major shortcomings – the softness. Any strike or slam on the surface of the slope could leave her in the literal sense of an indelible mark. Thin Plastic has a flat smooth surface, it is possible to make slopes with their own hands, but that its positive characteristics as a material for finishing the end of slopes. Some companies offer very fast draw the space around the window, stick to the plastic lined with cement-sand mortar slopes.

Located Fire

Flame retardants must be accompanied by technical documentation for their application, which reflects the following figures and characteristics – appearance, body weight (density) and the estimated consumption – storage conditions and transportation of – information on application techniques (methods of surface preparation, number of coats and drying conditions, application equipment) – the event for safety and fire safety storage, transport and application (for formulations based on organic solvents) – thickness of the coating layer after drying, which provides fire-resistance rating – the operating conditions (humidity limits, ambient temperature, etc.) – lifetime warranty coverage (life) – the order of checking the quality of the coating – the test for flame retardance – definition of protocols factor reducing long-term allowable current loads – information about the features and frequency of replacement or restoration of coverage, depending on operating conditions – instructions on removing the technology coverage (in if necessary) – how to recycle coatings. OZS must have the property of adhesion with respect to the cable sheath material and previously coated flame-retardant coatings, but also does not attack on their outer coverings for the life of the cable. Fire retardant coating used in corrosive environments, high temperatures and humidity and other atmospheric effects, should have the appropriate resistance to these factors, within the limits specified in technical terms. OZS that do not contain toxic ingredients and organic solvents, used for fire protection of cables, located in the following areas and facilities: The existing power facilities, built and commissioned before 1981, where the electrical design features of the economy or adopted Project equipment layout decisions can not be separate sections of outside plant facilities with automatic fire extinguishing in double floors and channels under the premises of switchgear panels, boards and systems Administration (KRA, TSSCHU, CR, RSCHU, PCS, etc.) In cable installations of substations and hydroelectric plants, which according to the norms do not provide automatic fire-extinguishing equipment, but need to improve level of reliability of equipment and machinery; in cable trays and cable constructions fuel-coal-fired power plants. In this case, fire-retardant treatment of cables can not be reason for not implementing measures to prevent the accumulation of coal dust in cable trays and on building structures, cable structures in the district boiler houses, start-up and peak boilers Located on the grounds power to improve the reliability of their work in a possible fire, in the technological and computer rooms galleries of diesel, steam turbine, gas turbine and other power plants. Application for OZS Organic solvents are allowed on the cable lines, laid open, outside of buildings and structures, subject to the additional fire safety measures and controls the work performed. In case of need improve fire safety operation of cable constructions power plants equipped with automatic fire-fighting facilities, a decision on the need for additional use fireproof cable coverings made chief technical advisor. Flame retardants and coatings must meet the requirements of NPB 238 'Fireproof cable coatings. General technical requirements test methods' and have certificates of compliance, fire safety and hygiene.
