  • inking solution - this quality will avoid cracking during drying of the painted surface and its deformation, such as shrinkage at home.
  • ability to perform regular cleaning of wet or dry surface, which means the paint must create stable, little affected by abrasive loads.
  • quality paint should provide easy and smooth application of the composition on the ceiling, the maximum hiding the small surface defects.
  • An important selection criterion is the affordability.However, on this issue there is no definitive decisions - often colorful compositions leading manufacturers are very many, but it is fully justified by the highest quality products.

What formulations are optimal for the ceiling?

As practice shows finishing works, often for ceiling surfaces in premises used "old-fashioned" whitewash and water-emulsion colorful compositions.

whitewash used since time immemorial.It is widely used in the past years due to the fact that a better option at first simply not been invented, and then had to find a quality paint shops is extremely difficult.Masters tried to improve a paint composition, conducting experiments and adding a variety of natural adhesives, achieving greater adhesion and durability of the material.Some finishers and to this day have not abandoned chalk painting, considering it the most environmentally friendly solution.

aqueous emulsion composition - it is an emulsion, which is a solvent - ordinary water, which weighed insoluble in her tiny drop of polymer film-forming substance.After paint on the surface, the water evaporates and the particles are joined together, creating a thin polymer film.

  • made from water and chalk paint for the ceiling also called whitewash.This compound can be called economy goal, as it has a very low price.But we must understand that this finish has significant drawbacks:

- This ceiling can not be washed, since water with contamination and wash away the paint itself.Therefore, if the surface of the ceiling is stained, then it will have good wash and stain again;

- Chalk paint is not resistant to abrasion - if we draw on such a surface by hand, then it will remain the traces;

- especially quickly paint on the basis of chalk can be damaged on the kitchen ceiling, so there it is highly undesirable to use.

  • Acrylic paint is made up of ingredients such as chalk, acrylic polymer and water.This option is more resistant to external factors, but also durable enough.The composition can be used for painting ceilings in premises with normal humidity and the absence of foreign odors and fumes - this can be a living room, nursery or bedroom.

ceiling covered with such a composition, can not be subjected to wet cleaning, as paint can weigh individual sections.If we make a dry ceiling hand, then it is possible to see traces of whitewash, is not as clear as on the chalk, but he still remains.

  • Latex paint manufactured from a synthetic latex which is produced by dispersing particles of synthetic rubber and water.

In fact, after application of the paint on the surface and evaporation of water therefrom, it forms a protective ceiling elastic film.The composition dries quickly and the next layer can be applied to a few hours after the previous one.
