How to choose a water-based paint for painting ceiling and walls
Choosing water-based paint, you must have a clear understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of its types, peculiarities of their application and use.

polyvinyl Acetate paint
PVA paint consists of polyvinyl acetate emulsion, colorful pigments, plasticizers and stabilizers. The main advantage of these inks is their low cost, however, they have a serious drawback – sensitivity to moisture. It is for this reason, you should refrain from staining with water-based PVA paint surfaces in the kitchen, bathroom and other rooms with high humidity
Polyvinyl acetate paint perfectly fall on concrete, plaster, drywall and wood, pretty good on the walls, covered with oil paints. "Don't like" they surfaces treated aluminous, aluminous and vitriolic primers and Cretaceous whitewashing.
Paint with mineral composition
In the manufacture of mineral water-based paints in their composition is administered a cement or hydrated lime. Their main purpose is the coloration of concrete and masonry surfaces.
Paint with mineral composition, due to their high resistance to hydronephrosis, used for decoration, regardless of the level of moisture in them, however due to the very limited lifetime because of the emergence of new "vodoemulsionki" with the best performance properties, the demand for mineral paint is falling rapidly.
His name acrylic owe its main component is an aqueous emulsion acrylic resins. In addition to the polyacrylates, the ink composition includes water and color pigment.
The undeniable advantage of acrylic paints is their resistance, which allows their use for the dyeing of the premises, regardless of the humidity of air in them. Concrete, plaster, brick, drywall, glass, metal – here is a partial list of surfaces that you can cover with acrylic paints.
Their colors are juicy and bright, after a few years, acrylic paint do not fade, since it is not subject to fading. Formed after drying, a protective film resistant to high temperatures, cracks and wrinkles on it almost never happens.
A noticeable drawback of acrylic paints is their relatively high cost, so to reduce the cost polyacrylates in their composition replace acrylic copolymers. On the quality of the paint such replacement is almost not reflected, but the cost becomes significantly lower.
Add in the acrylic paint latex makes them resistant to moisture and external mechanical influences, so the surfaces painted by them, can be subjected to wet cleaning.
a Silicate and silicone paint
Water emulsion of liquid glass with addition of a pigment called silicate paints.Excellent air and vapor permeability, high weather and long-term (to 20 years) service life make them indispensable when painting concrete, brick and plaster. At the same time, you should avoid using water-based silicate paint in an area with high humidity.
These shortcomings deprived of the silicone paint. The presence in their composition of silicone resins allows their use for the finishing of almost all surfaces, both internal and external.
Fill in all the bumps, silicone paint is able without the use of putty to hide defects of a surface up to 2 mm, and the film formed after drying, has high strength and is water-repellent. It is perfect for finishing raw and damp rooms, as having high vapor permeability, allows you to not only fight the fungus but also prevent its occurrence.
Silicone paint along with superb performance is the most expensive among all water-based paints.Whatever "you have" you choose, let the painted surface it will be elegant and beautiful, and colorful cover — serves long and reliably.
Good luck to you! Let you will succeed!
