In this review, we are going to discuss about the darling of Brazilian painters, in this case, about Coralar da Coral acrylic paint, so, to find out what are the pros and cons of this line so used in real estate painting, keep reading...
Before starting my Coralar paint review, I would like to make something very clear to you as a reader: "In this article, I am evaluating Coral's Coralar paint based on my experience as a painter and not as a buyer or seller, so I know precisely the attributes of this product at the tip of the brush, method of use, drying time, dilution and even a little chemical composition."
That said, let's get down to business, which is evaluating Coral's Coralar paint.
Coralar is an acrylic paint and is indicated for those who need savings without losing quality. This paint is not difficult to apply, dries quickly and has a negligible smell, and offers a decent matte finish that hides blemishes on partitions, walls and ceilings.
In addition, despite being a low (economic) classification paint, Coralar has excellent inclusion on surfaces, whether dry or wet, and its yield is up to 320 m² per coat, which guarantees good performance in painting per square meter, for both the painter and the customer.
Furthermore, it can be said that the application of Coralar paint is recommended for interior real estate painting, or for painting masonry surfaces, partitions, ceilings, unglazed ceramics and concrete walls indoors.
How is Coral Coralar paint diluted?
If you really want to know how to dilute Coralar paint, just follow the following information:
On unlocked surfaces (partitions and ceilings), the painter must dilute the paint with drinking water. Or rather, for different types of surfaces, add 10 to 20% of potable water to 1 gallon of paint.
Number of coats of paint on surfaces with Coral Coralar?
Generally, with 2 or 3 coats of paint, it guarantees great coverage. However, to get better coverage on walls more quickly, it is recommended to use Coralar with Coral's new formula.
But, once again, it is worth remembering that Coralar is an economic category paint, so to achieve a good result in the painting, it depends a lot on the type and condition of the surfaces and, mainly, on the thickness of the layers of paint applied to the wall or ceiling, therefore, it may well be vital for the painter to apply more coats to achieve the expected coverage.
Master painting tips
Today's master tip, it is for inexperienced painters, for example, in the work schedule, Coralar paint is reasonable for repainting surfaces of similar colors and never in a change of shade, that is, it is recommended only for repainting ceilings or drywall in white tone or in partitions and walls of the same color and matte finish.
On the other hand, if a color change is necessary, it is recommended to use the Coralar Duo paint, which is in the Standard category and has a much greater covering power than Coralar Economy, or to use the Coral 3 and 1 line, which is a Premium paint and coverage is more prevalent than Coralar Economy and Standard, and of course, it is lethal against enemies such as microscopic organisms (against guarantee of mold and bacteria buildup).
Another master tip is to try not to paint surfaces on rainy days or with a temperature below 15 ° C or above 38 ° C and with a relative humidity below 85%.
planning and painting
Always keep the place in a well-ventilated climate with entrances and windows open during the application of paint on the surface, in any case, if the property is close to coastal regions, it is recommended to close entrances and windows during paint application to avoid collection of waste in the partitions, but still look for different options for ventilating the place before opening the paints for use.
Mandatory use of epi - (personal protective equipment)
Before putting your hands in putty or paint, be sure to use PPE - Personal Protective Equipment, such as a protective mask, gloves and goggles, both during surface preparation and paint application.
Gracious, remember to clean your hands well in drinking water with neutral soap or use a 70% alcohol gel solution to disinfect them and try to follow the WHO well-being and health proposals against Covid-19, and of course, also maintaining social distancing and always trying not to have contact with third party objects.
Never use lime as a base, for this there is Coral's wall preparation primer that prepares partitions, and consistently eliminates loose parts from surfaces, for example, old paint that has been corroded by the weather or climatic conditions prior to painting and calcined walls.
