Do you know the Basics of Nitrocellulose Paint?

24, Jul. 2020

As a Nitrocellulose Manufacturer, share with you. 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. Generally, plasticizers such as dibutyl phthalate, dioctyl ester, and oxidized castor oil are also added. Solvents mainly include true solvents such as esters, ketones, and alcohol ethers, co-solvents such as alcohols, and diluents such as benzene. Nitro paint is mainly used for wood and furniture coating, home decoration, general decorative coating, metal coating, general cement coating, etc.

The emergence of nitrocellulose lacquer has a history of more than 100 years. my country began its production and application in 1935, when the United States produced 42.3 million gallons of nitrocellulose. Nitro lacquer is very popular because of its fast drying, good decoration, good outdoor weather resistance, etc., and it can be polished and waxed to modify the defects caused by the paint film during construction. At that time, only nitrocellulose paint could be sprayed, which was suitable for large-area construction.

After the 1950s, with the development and growth of the technical force of the coating industry, domestic coating companies have the conditions to improve old products, develop new products, adopt new processes, and add new equipment, so that the production quality and variety of nitrocellulose paint are improved, and the variety is increased. rapid. Before the 1970s, it was a high-end paint product with good decorative properties, and its output increased year by year. By the mid-1980s, the ratio of its output to the total output of coatings was relatively stable.

With the development of the coating industry and the progress of science and technology, in order to continuously meet the needs of the society, batches of new products have been successfully developed, and many synthetic resin coatings have emerged one after another. In order to adapt paint products to meet the requirements of national industrial construction, the former Ministry of Chemical Industry put forward in the product structure optimization and adjustment plan: "Limit the first four categories (grease paint, natural resin paint, phenolic paint, asphalt paint), and transform the two categories, namely nitrate Base paint and perchlorovinyl paint will further improve its quality and develop synthetic resin paint." The development of synthetic resin paint has also squeezed out part of the market for nitrocellulose paint.

The advantages are good decoration effect, simple construction, rapid drying, low requirements for the coating environment, good hardness and brightness, less ills in the paint film, and easy repair. The disadvantage is that the solid content is low, and more construction passes are needed to achieve better results; the durability is not very good, especially the internal nitrocellulose paint, which has poor gloss and color retention, and it is easy to use for a longer time Disadvantages such as loss of gloss, cracking, discoloration, etc.; paint film protection is not good, and it is not resistant to organic solvents, heat and corrosion.
