So, my dear fellow Painters from Brazil, how are you?
This is Marcos Henrique, aka Garoba from the company MH Pinturas & Reparos!
Back to context, without further ado...
Today I'm here to talk about something that many painting professionals in Brazil have been thinking about: Premium, Standard and Economy paint: what's the difference anyway?
Well, we know that painting is a fundamental part of any residential or commercial space - all things considered, the types of paints and tones chosen will, in fact, be the reason for all the enrichment and cordiality of the conditions for beautifying the property or establishment.
In everyday life, whether after work development, before a wall remodel, or while updating that environment you love so much, the composition stage consistently stands out enough to be noticed, producing a great deal of guesswork for the developer. home design.
So, given the wide range of affordable items available, it is normal that some questions arise during the painting phase, not only regarding the best paint shade for each climate or the subsequent shade after complete drying, but also about the classification of most reasonable ink for each case.
In Brazil, until some time ago... formally, there were only three paint classifications: Economy, Standard and Premium. This implies that, according to Brazilian principles, explicitly speaking of NBR-15079, manufacturers of various brands are simply authorized to deliver and advertise paints that can be categorized as one of these classifications.
For this reason, in today's post, I show you the main contrasts between each type of paint category and where they can be applied to acquire a superior fit to the assumptions and attributes of each painter's task.
So, see if you don't fall asleep! Warm up your coffee and grab the cookies and read on carefully to understand each of the ink categories...
Economic Ink (Prudent Ink)
Economy line paints also known by American Painters as being the prudent ones, as the name suggests, will generally be cheaper, which undoubtedly establishes a benefit and fascination for anyone looking for a paint that is more readily available in most stores. .
On the other hand, this class of paint offers a generally low performance, that is, the number of coats expected to acquire a decent finish will, in general, be greater than that of Standard and Premium paint.
Of course, every painter who understands product classification knows that this type of paint is only recommended for repainting white ceilings or painting walls in the same color, preferably tone-on-tone and with a matte finish.
This is because this type of paint offers less protection against the terrible impacts of climate or air conditioning cold and humidity, so it is not recommended for exterior painting compositions.
The normal durability period for this paint is two years. Along these lines, this classification is only suitable for interior spaces with a low degree of scratches, such as, for example, a thin putty covering.
Standard Ink (Standard Ink)
If we take it literally, "Standard" means "Standard" in English. In this sense, this classification offers a middle ground of quality of and, therefore, presents a value that is slightly higher than the monetary price of the economy ink, however, lower than the Premium category inks.
Other than that, Standard paint is a reasonable piece of paint for interior spaces, where it can last up to three years, and also for exterior surfaces, where it typically lasts literally two years.
It has a slightly high return, matte finish and excellent inclusion for both surfaces and is the category that yields the most in terms of dilution.
Luxury Ink (Premium Ink)
Depending on the climate and climatic conditions of the place, Premium grade paints last up to five years and are most reasonable for outdoor regions. This way, despite being more expensive than economy and standard, they have an amazing money-saving advantage ratio, being great for the customer who doesn't want to stress about painting for a long time.
Different devices incorporate excellent workmanship, requiring less coverage and against buildup and hostile to moisture activity. Featured in matte, semi-gloss and glossy silk finishes, they are washable and have low odor.
Some paint brands have a wide range of Economic, Standard and Premium paints, with various finishes, to suit the most varied types of tasks. Assuming you really have any doubts about the contrasts between each application, and which is best for your needs, just get in touch with the manufacturers.
High Luxury Ink (SuperPremium)
High Luxury latex paints, also known as Super Premium, were made on September 25, 2019, and as of now have guaranteed manufacturers.
The new Super Premium class emerged from the endorsement of the amended adaptation of the specialized standard NBR 11702, which manages the grouping of latex paints and the prerequisites for each classification (Economic, Standard, Premium and Super Premium).
In its previous variant, the standard perceived the presence of only Economy, Standard and Premium classes.
Sherwin-Williams pioneered Super Premium inks!
The Super Premium Acrylic Paint Aquacryl White 18 Liters Mate is suggested for application both indoors and outdoors, and has a simple and productive inclusion with yield of up to 380m² per coat.
Sherwin Williams has been available in Brazil for over 60 years with the aim of bringing to the market the most ideal coverage and safety options, with paints for the most diverse purposes.
For today, that's all!
