What Is Water Based Paint?
Editor£ºadmin Time£º2012-6-26 Views: 692

Water-based paints are used in multiple places, from the interior of a home to a child's fingerpaint art project. These paints are steadily rising in popularity with the public's concerted effort to turn away from harmful solvent-based paints, which require dangerous chemicals to clean up. All that is needed to clean water-based paint from a brush is some soap and warm water.


  • Water As The Vehicle

    • Water-based paint, such as acrylic paint, uses water as the vehicle which carries the color pigment to the painted surface. As the paint dries, the solvent evaporates. Water-based paints pose little health risk for humans and animals since the only thing evaporating and entering the air supply is hydrogen and oxygen. This is not the case with solvent-based paints such as epoxy, which may release harmful organic chemicals into the air supply while drying.

    Latex Paint and Allergies

    • According to the American Coatings Association, water-based paints like latex paint pose no allergy threat to those with latex allergies because there's actually no latex used in the paint. The term "latex paint" is used to describe a type of water-based paint which uses a formulated polyvinyl material and no actual latex rubber. Latex paint is sometimes known as acrylic paint because of the acrylic resin that is used to create it.

    Water-Based Paint Uses

    • According to Consumer Reports, water-based paint is commonly used for the interior of homes because of its quick drying time, ease of cleanup and lack of harsh smell. Natural water-based paints also have low to zero percentages of volatile organic compounds. Such chemicals can pose a health risk for humans and pets living in a home. Volatile organic compounds may remain in a home for years, even after the paint has dried.

    Disadvantages of Water-Based Paints

    • Water-based paints do not last as long or stand up to the elements as well as solvent-based paints. This means that over time, the water-based paint in your home will fade and require repainting. Surfaces also require more preparation before receiving water-based paints since dust or other debris on the surface can cause the paint to dry unevenly or not adhere well. This can increase the likelihood of cracking or peeling.
