I believe that for many people, it is not clear what is the difference between paint and Powder Coatings, and even many people think that paint is paint, but is this really the case? Is paint really equal to paint? As a Nano Powder Coatings Supplier, I will share relevant information with you.

The words paint and paint are often heard in the decoration. For many people, it is not clear whether the two are different. Many people think that paint is paint, but is this really the case? Is paint really equal to paint? Maybe the answer is beyond your expectations, let's take a look.

First, the definition of coatings and paints

Coating is a solid coating film used on the surface of objects. It has functions of protection, decoration, insulation, and anticorrosion. Generally, it can be divided into two forms: liquid and solid.

Paint refers to a general term for an organic solvent as a medium or a high solid, solvent-free oil-based paint.

Second, the difference between paint and paint

A. In the past, most paints were based on vegetable oils, so they were called paints, but now synthetic resins have completely replaced vegetable oils, and their apparent characteristics are liquid, and they cannot cover solid coatings. , Changed to paint.

B. Simply put, coatings include solid powder coatings and liquid paints, but paints can only be liquid paints, not the same as paints. The term paint can cover all types of products in the industry.

C. Water-based paints and powder coatings are widely used in the market today. Water-based paints account for about 38% of the total coatings in China. However, water-based paints and paints have essentially different chemical properties. The properties are also very different, so this kind of material is also called paint. Water-based paints and paints should be listed as two different series in liquid paints.

Therefore, coatings can be divided into three categories: paints, water-based paints, and powder coatings;

Lacquers include paints and water-based paints.

Third, difference between water-based paint and paint

Water-based paints are liquid paints that use water as a diluent. The major difference between water-based paints and traditional oil-based paints is that water-based paints do not need to add any curing agent or diluent. They only need to be reconciled with water, so they do not contain formaldehyde, benzene, xylene and other harmful substances, thereby eliminating the possibility of air pollution . At present, in developed countries such as Europe and the United States, it has basically replaced oil-based paint, with a penetration rate of more than 90%, which is a relatively environmentally friendly paint.

Fourth, the difference between water-based paint and latex paint?

All coatings with water as solvent or dispersion medium can be called water-based coatings. Water-based coatings include water-soluble coatings, water-reducible coatings, and water-dispersible coatings.

Latex paint is also called synthetic resin emulsion paint. It is a kind of organic coating. It is a kind of water-based paint prepared by using synthetic resin emulsion as the base material, and then adding pigments, fillers and various additives. Latex paint is just a kind of water-based paint. The range of water-based paint is wider, including metal paint and wood paint.
