Types of Wood Paint
The Philippines has numerous varieties of wood paint, each having pros and cons. These are some of the most common:
Waterproof wood paint
This wood paint prevents rotting, warping, and cracking by repelling water.
Outdoor wood surfaces exposed to rain, dampness, or splashes benefit from waterproof wood paint.
However, waterproof wood paint may trap moisture inside the wood and cause rot.
Weatherproof wood paint
Similar to waterproof wood paint, this type protects against sunlight, heat, cold, wind, dust, and pollution.
Weatherproof wood paint can also be used outdoors. Weatherproof wood paint may fade or peel due to exposure.
Wood paint water based
Soap and water clear up this wood paint because its principal solvent is water.
Wood paint water-based is eco-friendly and suitable for indoor usage due to its minimal odor and VOC emissions.
Water-based wood paint dries faster. However, water-based wood paint may discolor and scratch easily.
Epoxy wood paint
Epoxy resin gives this wood paint a glossy, durable finish. Chemicals, abrasion, impact, and rust don’t affect epoxy wood paint.
Epoxy wood paint is waterproof and weatherproof. Epoxy wood paint involves combining two components and is difficult to apply.
But, due to UV light, epoxy wood paint may yellow.
Oil-based wood paint
This wood paint is more viscous and sticks to wood because oil is its major solvent. Oil-based wood paint gives a glossy surface and rich color.
Water and weather-resistant oil-based wood paint is also durable.
However, oil-based wood paint has a strong odor, high VOC emissions, and a long dry time, making it unsuitable for interior application.
Lacquer wood paint
This wood paint employs lacquer to give the wood a clear, lustrous appearance. Lacquer wood paint is quick-drying and easy to apply.
Lacquer wood paint is water- and weather-resistant. However, due to temperature variations, lacquer wood paint may fracture or chip.
Lacquer wood paint also may have a strong odor and substantial VOC emissions, making it less eco-friendly and acceptable for interior application.
Wood Paint Finish
After drying, wood paint has a finish look. The finish affects the painted surface’s aesthetics and functionality. Here are some common wood paint finishes:
- Evaporative finish
his finish cures by evaporating the paint solvent. Evaporative finishes include lacquer, shellac, varnish, and nitrocellulose.
Evaporative coatings are easy to apply and repair, but heat and moisture may damage them.
- Reactive finish
This finish dries by chemical reaction between paint components or atmospheric oxygen.
Reactive coatings include oil, alkyd, polyurethane, epoxy, and acrylic. Reactive coatings are more heat- and moisture-resistant but harder to apply and repair.
- Coalescing finish
Polymer particles in the paint combine to dry this finish like in Vinyl, rubber, and latex wood paint.
Coalescing coatings are safer for indoor use but less durable and scratch-resistant.
