Paint Quality and Performance
paint, coatings, pigment, latex May 11, 2010
Quality paint will have a high percentage of solids. The more solids, the more dry paint left on the application as the liquid evaporates. A higher concentration of solids will make the paint flow better during application, require fewer coats, splatter less and have better hiding characteristics.
Quality paints will also contain prime pigments that cover better and higher percentages of acrylic binders in latex paints that allow better bonding and higher resistance to cracking.
