Specialist paints are paints used for performing out of the ordinary functions or decoration such as adding a protective layer over rusted surfaces. Here we have discussed some specialist paints that you may need and are available from our website buildworld.co.uk.
We supply all kinds of paints, stains and coatings throughout the UK. Here we have discussed some specialist paint systems:
Some paints provide fire resistance properties to structural steel and cast iron. The paint works by keeping the temperature of steel or other metal structures below its critical temperature thereby keeping the building structure stable. Some paints release vapours that reduce the spread of the fire across the surface, some others work by forming a protective char layer. The heat of the fire caused the insulating char layer to expand and offer extended protection.
Heavy Duty Floor Paint comes with polyurethane alkyd resins that provide a hardwearing, protective, finish to stand up to any spillages and repeated cleaning without fading or deterioration. Such paints are safe for use on concrete and wooden floor areas.
Survey line marker paints are solvent-based and come to you in a range of colours to suit various applications. Created especially for general contractors and surveyors for spot marking, its semi-permanent formula allows the paint to last for at least months after application under normal use. It can also be applied by hand.
These paints have a special formulation that makes the paint perform as a primer, topcoat and undercoat, depending on how it is used. It can be painted directly onto rusty surfaces and will quickly dry in 15 minutes, offering long-term protection from further rusting. It can be used on exterior metallic structures such as gates, guttering, railings, drainpipes and garden furniture. A good anti-rust formula can keep your fences looking new for years to come.
Mildew Resistant Paints are designed to be used under damp and moist conditions. Such self-priming paints protect the paint from the growth of mould and mildew. It can be used in homes, schools, sports facilities, swimming pools, bakeries, etc. Their latex acrylic composition guarantees resistance against mould and mildew.
This is something difficult to imagine. However, anti-vandal paints are very much a reality. Anti-climb paints are applied to window ledges, brick walls, downpipes to protect from intruders. These have a slippery, sticky, non-drying coating, making the surface virtually impossible to climb.
