Every owner wants his house to look attractive and beautiful. It is not enough to just erase it for this purpose. Here, a mixture of colors, called a facade paint for outdoor engineering plastering, can be saved.
These coatings retain and significantly increase the positive properties of the gypsum. Since the paint does not cover the pores in the gypsum layer, moisture retention cannot be prevented. In addition, the paint coating protects the walls from the damaging effects of precipitation, mold and fungus. Many coatings contain various fillers in their composition to prevent burning of the coating in the sun. High quality exterior paint does not get dirty and peeled off.
All exterior paints are classified as water-soluble and organic soluble. Water solubility is further divided into aqueous emulsions (latex) and minerals. Water-dispersible coatings are vinyl, acrylic and decyl resins depending on the binder. Minerals refer to cement, silicate and lime paints, where the binders are Portland cement, liquid glass and slaked lime, respectively.
How to choose plaster exterior paint?
To create a beautiful, durable look, it’s important to choose the right coating. When choosing a color coating for your facade, you should be aware of the manufacturer: ask for feedback from a specific manufacturer and choose the most appropriate one based on your opinion. Pay attention to the expiration date of the paint: Do not buy expired products, otherwise, it will have a negative impact on the final result.
Exterior wall coatings consist of several basic components: a pigment that discolors the color of the paint and the various binder bases because the paint adheres firmly to the painted surface. In addition, the coating composition includes various additional components: a plasticizer, a drying accelerator, and the like. Therefore, the quality of any coating depends on its composition.
When purchasing exterior paint, read the instructions on the package carefully. The best plaster exterior paints are rugged and reliable. This material must be moisture and fire-resistant.
Gypsum A good choice for exterior walls is a material that can withstand low temperatures in winter, wind, snow or rain, and in the summer – long-term effects of hot weather, carrying sand and dust. In this case, the manufacturer must indicate on the packaging that the paint is weatherproof.
The paint layer must be porous in order for the plaster wall to inhale. This depends on the type of adhesive used in the paint. In addition, the exterior paint should have a high degree of adhesion, ie it is completely “stuck” to the gypsum without the expansion and flaking of the coating.
An important indicator of the choice of exterior coatings is their level of lightfastness: the higher the index, the stronger the resistance to sunlight. Covering the plaster with this coating will help to preserve the attractiveness and clean appearance of the building’s façade for extended periods of time.
