20, Aug. 2020

As a Nitrocellulose Manufacturer, share with you.

1. Different types

Polyester 2113 paint is also called not 5261 saturated polyester paint. It is a kind of multi-component paint. It is a thick paint made of 4102 polyester resin as the main film-forming material 1653. The paint film of polyester paint is plump, with thick layers and hard surfaces.



Nitro-lacquer is a relatively common paint for woodware and decoration. The main film-forming material of nitrocellulose lacquer is mainly nitrocellulose, combined with alkyd resin, modified rosin resin, acrylic resin, amino resin and other soft and hard resins.

Water-based paint is harmless to the human body and does not pollute the environment. The paint film is plump, crystal clear, flexible, and has the characteristics of water resistance, abrasion resistance, aging resistance, yellowing resistance, fast drying, and convenient use.

2. Different features

Water-based paint is a polymer dispersion system, the pigment dispersibility is not very good, so measures must be taken to improve it.

Polyester paint also has varnish varieties, called polyester varnish. Polyester paint needs to be cured during the construction process, and the amount of these curing agents accounts for one third of the total amount of paint.

Nitrolacquer has a good decorative effect, simple construction, rapid drying, low requirements for the coating environment, good hardness and brightness, and is not prone to film defects and easy to repair.

3. Different functions

The overall performance of the polyester paint film is excellent. Because the curing agent is used, the film hardness is higher, hard and wear-resistant, high in richness, resistance to damp heat, dry heat, acid and alkali oil, solvents and a variety of chemicals. The insulation is very high.

Water-based coatings can be directly applied on wet surfaces and humid environments; it has good adaptability to the surface of the material and strong coating adhesion.

Nitro paint is mainly used for wood and furniture coating, home decoration, general decorative coating, metal coating, general cement coating, etc.
