The Best Marine Paints

What is the paint?

Paint is necessarily a covering (colouring substance) applied on the metallic or non-metallic surface for decoration or protection purposes

Basic Components of Paint

Paint is a complex chemical that contains many components. It is necessary to understand the basic components of the paints before we proceed further with the paint buying guides.

Paints of the modern era consist of ten components having the responsibility to provide the specific quality. Here in this post, I will discuss the paints consists of the following five components.

Binder (Vehicle); – Binders are the oils, resins, and bitumen added to paints for the better spread and binding with the parent surface.

2. Base Pigment; – Pigments are used in paints for the durability and protection of the painted surface by their high resistance properties to the element. The base should protect the material for which it has been added, as Red lead is good for steel, and white led is best suited to give protection to the wood. 

3. Thinner/Solvent; – A thinner is added to the paint to adjust the viscosity to suit the application method. Water is used in emulsion paints and a thinner is used in oil paints.

4. Drier; – To accelerate the process of drying, drier substances like cobalt, and lead is used in the paints for the quick-drying up process.

5. Extenders/Colouring Pigments; – Extenders are the cheap alternatives for the expensive base pigments to give the coloring properties to paints.

Pigment is always added in powdered form as per the following guidelines.

• White lead, Titanium white, Lithopone pigments are used in white colour paints
• Red Lead, Chrome Red, natural Red, Oxides of iron and Red lead pigments are used in Red colour.
• Zinc chromate, Yellow Ochre’s and Chrome Yellow pigments are used in yellow Colour
• Iron oxides are used in brown colour
• Paris Blue, Ultra marine, Cobalt Blue and Persian Blue pigments are used in Blue colour.
