Frequently Asked Questions

Solvent-based paints are made up of liquefying agents that are meant to evaporate via a chemical reaction with oxygen.They are less susceptible to environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity during the curing phase. Humidity can actually prevent the water in a water-based coating from evaporating, making them impractical in some climates.

No solvent fumes(no bad smell, no breathing hazard and no special need for ventilation); Water based is more environmentally friendly; During application, splashes can be cleaned off easily with water (no need for special cleaning agents); Equipment can be cleaned with water (no need for special solvent cleaner); Water-based coatings do not damage plastics or bitumen; Non toxic. Personal physical contact is not harmful; Water-based coatings can be applied to both dry and damp surfaces. This is a major advantage in situations where rain has fallen, or wet soil has been removed to expose a foundation that needs to be treated. In such circumstances the water-based coatings will take longer to dry, but the water in the surface will merge with the water in the coating and evaporate with it. In the case of a solvent-based coating, the surface must be dry in order for an application to be made.

It may be physically washed off if rain falls onto a freshly painted water-based coating; It is susceptible to frost damage when wet. Must be protected from frost during transport and storage.

Epoxy paint is made from resins, and the chemical name of this paint is poly-epoxides. This is best suitable as a waterproofing paint for roof; when you face the struggle of damps on your roof. Hence, epoxy paints are known as damp-proof paints.

The various materials and chemicals used for water proofing include polyvinyl chloride, hypalon, ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) rubber, tar paper with asphalt and bituminous materials.

Polyurethane is a widely used chemical used for waterproofing exposed surfaces, including roofs. Polyurea is one of the best waterproofing chemicals in India and can be used to waterproof joints and surfaces in concrete structures.
