Ready-Mixed Paint

Most of the ready-mixed paint found on the market is mixed with alkyd resin, weather-resistant pigments, and additives. It is used for painting ordinary metal and wood. The paint film of ready-mixed paint is hard, good adhesion, and is easy to use and work with. Its drying time is long: Normally, the overcoating intervals is above 10 hours. If the painted film is too thick and takes too long to dry, wrinkles or cracks may appear on the surface because the paint under the dry surface is still wet.

The paint can be applied with brush, roller, or air spray. It must be well and thoroughly mixed before use; if the paint viscosity is too high, thinner can be used as the dilution. The amount of dilution varies according to the tool used for painting.
