    What are the benefits of using water based paint on wooden surfaces?

    Frequently asked questions:
    Q. What are the benefits of using water based paint on wooden surfaces?
    The biggest development for wood treatments over the past decade is the development of high-tech water-based treatments. The benefits of using water-based products are far greater than solvent based products. Here are just a few reasons why you should use water-based products to protect your wood. Benefits of water-bourne products: Water-bourne coatings dry faster & there is no smell. Water-bourne gives even better protection than solvent based (better resistance to the elements). Water-bourne coatings allow the wood to breath. Water based paint penetrates 3 times deeper into the wood than solvent based (it can penetrate up to 2mm into the wooden substrate), the product therefore lasts a lot longer. Water-bourne has greater elasticity than solvent bourne. With water-based paint the clean up and mixing is cheaper as you don’t need to buy thinners – you only need water. For good drying ensure there is good air flow (ventilation) and some heat – don’t let it dry too fast (not too much heat) as this will create an orange peel finish – also be careful with heat near pine as it brings the resin out – don’t use heat lamps unless they are air blowers.
