|A:||(a)||For rooms with many occupants, use a dirt resistant and washable paint that does not wear out or discolor easily.|
|(b)||Choose a paint that suits your particular environment. For example, use a damp-proof anti-mould paint if you live near the seaside.|
|A:||Yes. It serves the following 3 functions :|
1. Prevent materials from bleeding through to the surface;
2. Prevent reaction of the substrate with incompatible top coats;
3. Prevent undue absorption of the subsequent coating into the substrate.
|A:||An intermediate coat formulated to prepare a primed surface or prepared surface for the subsequent finishing coats. Functions include imparting opacity and building film to the total paint system.|
|A:||A top coat is the finishing coat of paint that decorates and protects the treated surface. It gives shine and texture, and provides tolerance to adverse environmental elements.|
About Paint Method
|A:||1. Surface preparation - Remove any lose particles; apply filler on holes and sand till smooth.|
2. Remove stain & dirt; wait till dry.
3. Apply 1 coat of sealer/ primer.
4. Apply 2 top coats.
|A:||1. Keep the surface dry. Generally, paint work should not get started if the humidity of new walls is more than 10%. |
2. Use filler to fill any cracks or uneven areas.
3. Apply 1 coat of sealer/primer (Nippon Odourless Primer or V5101) to make the top coat smooth & durable.
|A:||1. If the old coat is flaky, remove the old coat completely with a scraper. |
2. Sand the wall surface smooth.
|A:||If you know the floor area of the room, and the ceiling height is about 2.5m, simply multiply the floor area by 3. If the ceiling height is higher than 2.7m or lower than 2.5m, enlarge or reduce the calculated figure accordingly. This is only a rough calculation. You should make other allowances, e.g. the area of doors and windows, as required.|
|A:||Paint brush, roller and spray gun.|
|A:||A new brush may make the paint work imperfect if brush hair drops on paint. To prevent this happens, fingers the brush back and forth to make the lose hair drop out. Then, soap the brush into hot water completely. Last, wrap with paper and keep dry.|
|A:||Remove excessive paint on brush to avoid paint drip on the floor.|
|A:||1. Choose a roller with suitable length.|
2. Never make the roller painty on its ends.
3. Start the paint work from the edge of ceiling.
4. Push the roller upward to avoid paint soiling.
5. Paint with a "M" or "W" pattern to make the paint evenly distributed.
|A:||Using brush to apply the coat is the simplest and earliest method. It is good for applying paint on various object shapes. However, it consumes huge labour and time to complete the job. On the other hand, applying paint with rollers is suitable for large application areas, and yet the finish resulted from brush would be better than roller.|
|A:||The right sequence of applying the paint is from top to bottom. That is, first applying the paint from ceiling, then the walls, doors, windows and baseboard in sequence.|
1. High-pressure washing of all affected areas supplemented with manual scrubbing if necessary
2. Treat surface with Anti-fungus solution to terminate growth of organisms embedded in the concrete
3. Wash again to remove any residue and allow to dry. Make good the defects
|A:||The crack is developed from the concrete. Using high elastic emulsion paint, this can cover the hair crack and have high protection on the wall to make a smooth & perfect surface performance.|
1. Scrape off the discolouring area and sand to smooth.
2. Apply one coat of alkaline-resistant sealer.
3. Apply top coats with durable colour and alkaline-resistant features.
|A:||The formation of loose, powdery pigment on the surface may caused by various reasons:|
1. Over dilution of paint
2. Fail to apply sealer is before applying paint.
3. High humidity in the application areas.
Recommended solutions: 1. Remove the chalking areas completely and apply 1 coat of sealer before applying the top coat.
|A:||Possible reasons: Bubbles are caused by water seepage or high humid condition.
Recommended solutions: |
1. Avoid to paint on wet or high humid day
2. Check for cracks on wall and patch them with filler.
3. Scrape off the “bubbles” and sand to dry.
4.Leave the area to dry completely before paint.
|A:|| Possible reasons:|
1. Different application method and time.
2.Different gloss level of the paint.
3. Uneven film coat thickenss.
4. Light and shadow in the application areas may affect the colour tone.
About ECO paint
|A:||Using Odour-less interior or exterior paints which are low odour, low VOC (volatile organic compounds), water-based paints, diluted with water, no odour and good for heath.|
|A:||VOCs (volatile organic compounds) are found in wide variety of everyday products such as solvent-based paints/coatings, adhesives, sealants, printing inks, many consumer products, organic solvents and petroleum products, which is NOT good for health. All Nippon Paints’ odour-less products are compliance with regulation “indoor decorating and refurbishing materials limit of harmful substances of interior architectural coatings”. The VOC control is similar to the control adopted in California of the United States. It is expected that the VOC Regulation, when fully implemented, would help reduce about 8,700 tonnes of VOC emission a year.|
|A:||The regulation of VOC in interior emulsion paint is 50gram/liter, if VOC is lower than this regulation, can be claimed as an environmental-friendly paint or eco-paint. All Nippon Paints’ odour-less products are compliance with this regulation, almost virtually no odour on the paints.|
|A:||Solvent-based paint is diluted with thinner or turpentine, those almost contain 100% VOCs. However, water-based is diluted with clear water, no harmful element, GOOD for Health. Nippon Paints’ interior emulsion paints are water-based, virtually no odour, low VOC and NOT harm for health.|
|A:||Colorant: Concentrated color that can be added to paints to make a specific color. Eco-Colorant is environmental-friendly colorant which is no dour, low VOC, regulated by Environmental Protection Department. |
Nippon Paint is the first paint company using ECO-Colorant. Nowadays, all Nippon paints’ water-based products are using ECO-Colorant. Eco-paint with eco-colorant is a real ECO-product.
|A:||Paint is divided into 2 types, one is “paint with Color” or the other is “paint without Color” (means White color paint). White color paint is no need to add on any Colorant, but if you choose another paint colors, the tinting machine will drop down several colors of eco-colorants, then mix & shake. Just wait a few minutes; your favor color will come out. No need to pay extra money, eco-colorant is mixed with paint already.|
|A:|| Formaldehyde is a chemical commonly used in industry for the manufacturing of plastic resins that can be used in wood, paper and textile industry. |
Formaldehyde is ubiquitous in the environment, as it is produced from both natural and manmade sources. It exists at low levels in most living organisms as a metabolic intermediate. Major manmade source of formaldehyde includes combustions (e.g., engine exhaust, wood burning, power plant, waste incineration etc.), building materials and tobacco smoke.
|A:||Formaldehyde is a chemical commonly used in industry for the manufacturing of plastic resins that can be used in wood, paper and textile industry. Major exposure route for formaldehyde in the general population is through inhalation of air, especially indoor air. Formaldehyde can come from recently installed building materials and furnishings. The International Agency for Research on Cancer of the WHO classified formaldehyde as “carcinogenic to humans”.|
|A:||Bamboo charcoal benefits environmental protection by reducing pollutant residue. It has excellent absorption properties, especially for formaldehyde, chloride, sulfide and so forth. But it can only stand for “Absorptivity” ordinary technology, just likes keeping all garbage inside a closet, not yet clean up. |
Thus, technicians of Nippon Paint develop Advanced Technology “Formaldehyde Abatement” in many years. They utilize & reform bamboo charcoal absorption properties with the unique technology applying on the formaldehyde-buster’s interior emulsion paint. It is absolutely a principle of decomposition to abate and decrease a certain level of harmful formaldehyde, transforming to Water ( H2O) in interior.
|A:||“Formaldehyde Abatement” advanced technology is able to abate and decrease a certain level of harmful formaldehyde, transforming to Water ( H2O) in interior. It is every day non-stop 24-hours catabolism on nearly 100% harmful formaldehyde. Recognized by National Inspection & Test Center, it is a high effective decomposition technology*, with which is good for health.|
