What is the difference between Acrylic Emulsion and vinyl Emulsion?
to do or not to do
Latex paint composition varies somewhat from source to source. However, there are some common parts: ~40% water ~20% vinyl acetate/vinyl acrylic or vinyl acrylic polymer (in emulsion) Surfactant (soap) Opacity agent (titanium dioxide primarily) Rheological modifier (to provide easy application) Anti-microbial agent (BIT or CIT) and Pigment
Not recommended. It's hard to stick to and it expands and contracts easily. Indeed, you can paint vinyl siding. Use a 100% acrylic paint no darker than the vinyl siding that you are painting (to avoid warping). Acrylic paint expands and contracts more than vinyl siding, so as long as it is applied to a clean surface, it will adhere for many years.
Alkyds can be modified (blended with ) acrylic resins/emulsions or other polymers such as phenolic resins or urethanes, so all acrylic alkyds are modified alkyds, but not all modified alkyds are acrylic alkyds. Both are pretty general terms, but modified alkyd is much more vague and proprietary. The term "Acrylic Alkyd" is usually reserved for alkyds which have been chemically modified with acrylic monomers such as methyl methacrylate, methacrylic acid, styrene, vinyl toluene, etc. These…
Normally, installing new vinyl directly over old vinyl is not recommended because most manufacturers will not honor the warranty. Any bumps or dips in the surface can translate through your new vinyl. Dye or stains from the old vinyl can also seep into the new vinyl. But you can remedy this by applying an embossing leveler over the old vinyl, and then sealing it with an acrylic sealer. Then trowel your glue onto the sealed…
Acrylic fibers are synthetic fibers made from a polymer (polyacrylonitrile) with an average molecular weight of ~100,000, about 1900 monomer units. To be called acrylic in the U.S, the polymer must contain at least 85% acrylonitrile monomer. Typical comonomers are vinyl acetate or methyl acrylate. The Dupont Corporation created the first acrylic fibers in 1941 and trademarked them under the name Orlon
One of the advantages of vinyl exterior shutters is that they can be created to match your color scheme so they never need painting. If you buy a home with older vinyl shutters, it is better to replace the shutters than paint them. If you do try to paint your shutters, you must paint them a similar color and use paint with a mix of acrylic and urethane resins.
Most professional tile installers use an asphalt based emulsion adhesive. This is great for applications where you have high traffic and don't want any movement that you tend to get with the stick on vinyl tiles. My personal opinion on stick on tiles is that you are wasting your money as they always separate and move.
VCT stands for vinyl composition tiling and VAT means vinyl asbestos tiling. VCT flooring is made of a vinyl combination material and is the most popular type of floor tiling on the market.VAT can present a hazard due to the asbestos. It is found mostly in older buildings and homes. Read more: How to Know VAT or VCT | eHow.com http://www.ehow.com/how_7500036_vat-vct.html#ixzz29kll0neX
