How to Tell if Your Paint is Compatible

How to Tell if Your Paint is Compatible

Paint compatibility entails your paints ability to actually adhere to older coats of alkyd or oil-based paint. When you're trying to use a water-based latex paint to paint over more than three or four coats of old alkyd or oil-based paint, the adhesion can prove to be minimal, which causes flaking and "lift off." Rob Hooft, a structural chemist with a Ph.D. in molecular modeling and X-ray diffraction sums it up best,

Propane tank refinishing is the best way to protect your investment from the elements. Rust, corrosion, and weather-related imperfections inevitably begin to rise, increasing the potential for rot and rendering your propane tanks useless.

Fixing Poor Scrub and Stain Resistance

Poor scrub resistance, poor stain resistance. You know you've got an issue, but you're not exactly sure what's causing it and more importantly, how to fix it. Scrub resistance is the tendency of paint to mimic something around it as you paint. It leaves a small impression in the paint that ruins the job you're trying to do. Stain resistance means that your paint is more prone to absorbing dirt and grime, which can cause the paint to become seemingly permanently dirty and grimy. The main cause of both of these issues is the use of a low-quality paint that is porous in nature. This can also happen when you're using paint without a primer or not waiting long enough between coats. At this point, you may be about ready to give up, having exhausted every option that you can think of. 

Luckily, H-I-S has been experts in the paint industry for a very, very long time and we can help you fix this mess that you're in so that the project turns out perfect.

Commercial Contractor’s Best Friend in 2017

Commercial Contractor’s Best Friend in 2017

For the commercial paint contractor, the old adage is true, “Time is Money.” Imagine going into a paint supply store, spending an hour waiting for the employee in charge of the front desk to find their manager and ask where the supplies you desperately need to finish out the job are. Imagine at the end of that hour the anxiety that comes when they don’t have everything that you need or they’ve managed to mess up your order. When time is your money when what you make in an hour is entirely dependent on how well and how quickly you can finish a job, time matters.

The Exterior Acrylic Finish of the Future

The Exterior Acrylic Finish of the Future

There comes a time in every home owner’s life when you need to update your exterior. Finding the right paint finish is very important and can help to completely determine what the end product looks like. What we’ve noticed from industry standard exterior acrylic finishes is that they’re difficult to apply, they smell bad, and they’re not made to be low VOC and easily cleaned up. That’s because the big paint companies don’t mind if their consumers have to buy a few extra gallons and start over on the project because their paints aren’t user-friendly. The other thing that we noticed was that the durability from a lot of the big box guys wasn’t the greatest. You might get a few years out of the product before it began to fade or peel away altogether.
