Nitrolacquer is the more common woodware and decorative paint. The main film-forming material of nitrocellulose paint is mainly nitrocellulose, plus soft and hard resins such as alkyd resin, modified rosin resin, acrylic resin and amino resin. Usually need to add plasticizers such as dibutyl phthalate, dioctyl ester, and oxidized castor oil. Solvents usually 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, and usual cement coating.

The use of nitrocellulose lacquer is different. It is divided into four types: wood varnish, external varnish, internal varnish and enamel lacquer of various colors. Each has different functions. Some are suitable for metal painting, some are suitable The painting of wooden furniture has its own advantages in durability, weather resistance and durability.

Is nitrocellulose lacquer environmentally friendly?

To see whether the nitrocellulose paint is environmentally friendly, it depends on the solvent composition contained in the nitrocellulose paint. Judging from the composition of the nitrocellulose paint, the solid content contained in it is relatively low. The primary pollution and damage to the environment is the volatile solvent. Therefore, if you want environmentally friendly nitrocellulose paint, the best choice is water-based paint. Water-based paint can reduce volatile solvents to a low level. This is also the new development direction of the paint industry.

Originally, all the paint products have some formaldehyde content, but the water-based paint will reduce the damage. Although there is no guarantee that 100% of the harmful factors of nitrocellulose lacquer are present, after painting, only frequent ventilation is required. After 4 to 8 weeks, there will be basically no major damage.

Although nitrocellulose paint is not perfect in terms of environmental protection, its performance is still quite good. After use, it will be no problem as long as it is ventilated for a period of time.
