A variety of paints can be seen on the modern construction market. However, the good old silver paint is still very popular, with many craftsmen even a priority. Why is she so popular? In our article we will analyze the main characteristics and areas of application of silver paint.
What is this paint.
Varieties. Silver paint is represented by fine aluminum dust, made using aluminum or its small waste.
Before use, the powder should be diluted with varnish or drying oil. The thinner is selected according to the type of use. Ready-made formulations and dry mixes are on sale.
Powder paint is of 2 types, differing in particle size:
- PAP- 1 having a coarse fraction;
- PAP-2 with a fine fraction.
The powder is diluted, as mentioned earlier, using drying oil or varnish in equal proportions.
The first type should be diluted with varnish in a ratio of two to five. The varnish must be poured into the powder, stirring at the same time, so that a uniform consistency is obtained. It is better to use a construction mixer for mixing.
Note : The paint has good heat resistance and can withstand temperatures of one hundred and twenty degrees.
The second type is bred in a ratio of one to three or 1: 4. Here you can take both varnish and drying oil. Diluted paint can be brought to paint condition with thinner.
The finished type has the letter designation bt177 and is one-component, that is, ready for use.
You can also use a solvent to dissolve. Which type is most convenient for you, that should be chosen.
Silver has a rich silver color. Lays down on the surface in an equal and dense layer. It can be used for both metal surfaces and wooden surfaces.
The name silverfish comes from the fact that it forms a thin film on the painted surface, which has a silvery shade. The structure of the paint is not capable of forming smudges and cracks on the surface. Due to its dense structure, it does not delaminate over time, and also hides defects.
With the help of silver, any product will acquire an aesthetic appearance.
It is used not only as a decorative finish, but also protects the surface from external influences.
All types of silver paint create a barrier on the painted surface with a thin, durable film. This barrier protects the surface from moisture and other negative external factors.
Aluminum dye has a light reflecting ability, which protects the surface of a building or structure from overheating by ultraviolet rays in the hot season.
Also, coloring compositions based on aluminum powder have good protective properties, due to which the silver metal has good adhesion to the painted surface and does not undergo corrosive formations.
It is also a barrier to the passage of air into the structure of the material.
Despite the fact that Silver is considered a versatile paint, yet it is more often used on metal to protect the material from corrosion.
It is most common for painting metal structures on an industrial scale, such as poles, power lines and pipelines, in the automotive industry - tuning cars, as well as for strengthening individual parts and structures that are in constant contact with water.
In addition, silver can be used to paint buildings made of stone, metal and concrete.
Acrylic enamel base paint can be used for painting plastic products. It is widespread in everyday life. For example, for painting a galvanized garage or fence.
One-component formulations are produced in buckets, cans, aerosol containers. Spray cans are considered the most convenient packaging, both in use and during storage.
It is necessary to store silver paint in tightly closed containers, away from heating devices. But since the substance in the cans is rapidly flammable and explosive, it should not be exposed to ultraviolet rays and moisture.
Naturally, children should not have access to it. Food should also not be stored together with paint.
Silver paint is a very common tool, largely due to its versatility, high technical and aesthetic performance, ease of use, as well as affordability.
