The different uses of paint

The different uses of paint

The great thing about paint is that it is so incredibly versatile – whether the intended use is a child’s art project, a large-scale garden fence or the walls of your home, it is guaranteed that there is a paint specifically designed to suit any purpose.



Within any industry setting, paints often need to be durable and quick-drying so that business can resume as quickly as possible. The durability and lifespan of the paint can be improved with the use of primer before applying the paint to the surface, and a top coats once the layer of paint has dried. Industrial paints also often come in larger quantities, as a larger surface area usually needs to be covered. If the paints were to be used in a chemistry industry setting, for example, specialist paint would need to be used to ensure that it does not react with any chemicals present. Paints are also specialised should they need to be applied to specific surfaces, like metal, for example.



Decorative paints are for use in homes, but also for use anywhere that needs to look attractive – a business, for example. These paints often come in a wide variety of colours and textures to match up with any specific requirements that you may have for your space. A popular choice for decorative paints is emulsion – this is basically the pigment of the colour mixed with a synthetic resin that binds with water to form the basis of the paint. Most use emulsion for decorative purposes as it has less of a paint smell and is easy to apply.



Paints for your outdoor needs are generally specialised to be applied on wood – wooden fences, decking and patios. This paint is the most durable, as it needs to withstand weather conditions and precipitation. A preserver can be applied before the paint to help it withstand moisture and keep the colour for longer. You could also opt for an oil as opposed to a paint for your decking or fences can – they leave a slight colour which enhances the look of the wood, instead of an opaque colour.



Agricultural paints are hard-wearing and available in lots of different colours, for use in a farming environment. Paints can be used on tractors, barns, and steel, to name only a few possible uses. Primers are specifically designed for use on ferrous materials (iron) so that they are perfect for tractors.

The benefits of using a paint primer


A new lick of paint will have your home looking fresh and new in no time – it’s an inexpensive way to update your home for the new season, or just add a small change to the room if it’s looking a bit tired. If you’re considering painting your walls, then make sure you apply a paint primer first – not only will it make the colour of your paint more vibrant, but it will keep the paint looking fresher for longer.

It saves you money and time


With a paint primer, you end up using less paint than you would normally, as the primer acts as a sealant to produce a smooth canvas. There’s no need for layer upon layer of paint to get a consistent finish, and so not only will you save some valuable time, you’ll save some money too.


It allows you to paint any surface


If you’re painting an obscure surface like vinyl, for example, it’s common that paint will not bond with the surface and will end up looking patchy, or won’t dry at all. With a paint primer these are problems of the past – just one coat before painting will improve paint adhesion on any surface, so you can paint without problems.


It can help your paint last longer


Paint will always look great just after it has dried – the colour’s vibrant, the finish is smooth, and everything looks fresh and new. What about in a year or two? It’s a common problem that paint fades or begins to show signs of wear and tear after a while – with a paint primer, you can avoid touch-ups and extra paint jobs.


It makes your colours richer


Chances are that, if you’re painting on a wall, there’s still paint from a previous job staining certain parts – this can show through and alter the colour of your paint, meaning you don’t end up with the colour that you want. Using a paint primer will hide any marks or previous paint jobs, so that your colour stays vibrant and true.


It controls stains


Water stains, pen and lipstick are all examples of stains that show through paint – paint primers will block these stains and make sure that your new colour isn’t ruined by previous accidents and mishaps. They allow you to start every new layer with a clean, unmarked canvas.


How To Get Your Decking Looking Perfect

Painting or staining your decking can be an especially difficult task, especially if you’re looking to create a beautiful glossy finish. But when it’s done right it can truly be the finishing touch to your garden. Not only are the results aesthetically pleasing, but the regular maintenance of the structure through re-coating will help to extend its lifecycle and save you money on unnecessary replacement. The vast majority of stainers that are out there on the market will have direct instructions on how to best apply their products, but we’ve compiled a handy list of tips to ensure that you get the best possible results.

The vast majority of people choose to stain rather than paint their decking. Painting tends to work better on softwoods while staining is recommended for both – but especially hardwood materials.

Firstly, you’ll need to make sure that the decking is completely dry – if there has been a heavy downpour of rain then it’s recommended that you wait roughly a week to ensure that there is no moisture within the wood. This helps to enhance the final outcome as it will allow for a more uniform application of the product – not possible if you try to apply coatings just after rain. It is also best if you don’t apply stains when it’s especially hot since the product will dry before it gets the chance to provide an even coverage.

Tips for decking staining from Palatine Paints

A glossy finish will require a bit more care and attention then a simple paint. The first step is ensuring that the surface is as smooth as possible; if you’ve neglected the decking for a while and it’s in a bad shape – we’ve a selection of scrapers and knives that will get the job done. Cleaning the wood and getting rid of the accumulated dirt and grime that is hanging around the garden is also very important. Secondly, there will be a couple of gaps within the wood because of the nails – this requires a quality filler, which you’ll find plenty of by clicking here and helps to keep future moisture out. Primer is the third step to great decking if you’re painting because it allows for the paint to better adhere to the wood.

Whilst you can use a wide variety of different brushes to get the job done, it is recommended that you use top quality goods for the best possible results. Synthetic brushes from our range are the perfect choice for coatings that are water based while our selection of no-bristle loss brushes help to make the coating of oil based stains easier.

Now that you’re ready to apply the stain, remember that less is more. If you completely drench the brush in the stain then the product will peel over time, use only as much that is required to be absorbed. Once you’ve followed the instructions and finished staining the decking, wait about 24 hours before you walk on it.

Once this process is all done, we’ve got the cleaner products to ensure that its look is maintained all year long, in a selection of colours to suit your particular requirements. Our whole wood stain category has all that you require in order to get that decking looking professional.
