Main Properties

Primers should have good adhesion to different surfaces, both new and previously treated, providing a good foundation for proper coating material. Primer smooths the surface tension coating, thus covering material will be better adhered (attached) to the substrate. It is quite difficult to put a finishing coat on a new old covering as a tool to easily inflicted material glides over the surface. Primer adequately provides roughness foundation for the successful application of topcoat. Compared with a topcoat, a primer often have higher content of dry residue and, consequently, they have a higher occupancy of that better hides minor imperfections. Nevertheless, for high quality paint finish is very important to carefully prepare the ground, as paint can not hide surface defects and the defects on the contrary clearly stand after the finish paint. Primer dries quickly and is easy to grind, which is important in preparing the surface. Inflict paint over the primer compared with a topcoat can be faster and, therefore, in this case to save time.

Hiding power of a good primer, usually even better than the coverage topcoat. Nevertheless, it is better tinted primer close to the tone with an effective layer of tint to cause a smaller number of layers during the final painting. In most cases, one application of primer and topcoat for well-covered and smooth finish. Primers reduce the absorption of the surface. There are big differences in absorbency of substrates. Especially porous gypsum-based fillers and powder filler of cement-based have a relatively high absorption, while at the drywall sheet on the cardboard sections absorption is low. If the absorption of the surface before painting is not aligned with primer, then a finishing layer is more opaque in the joints, containing filler with a high absorbency. If you are using is not absorbing primer decreases the absorption of the substrate. If such a surface to paint, then application of the primer increases the duration of work with a topcoat, which in turn will contribute to more easily achieve a uniform result.

Wooden Houses

§ April 2nd, 2012 § Filed under general § Tagged Comments Off on Wooden Houses

My position on the wooden house consist of the following convictions. 1. Housing must be made of wood – wood is the material for the construction given to us the most nature. Our knowledge about the ecology is very limited and therefore the beneficence of wood extends far beyond the known factors. Such as conifer resin kills germs is in a pine house air decontaminated. 2. Building a house should not exceed 3 months .- If a construction delay, any material will lose their properties to absorb moisture. If used for the construction of laminated veneer lumber, it will allow put the house under the key for 1 month (can be faster, but does not always work).

3. Minimum interior-decoration of the house from glued beam is minimized. On the floor is laid laminate or linoleum. Do not forget the impregnation is applies to all wooden houses. Typically, the initial impregnating do at the factory. Reprocessing should be done in five years. 4.

Minimum non-natural materials – If you like the wall with wallpaper, then do not House of laminated veneer lumber. Everything in the house has already been done. Alternatively, you can not put a wooden and plastic windows. Roofing material, but anyone, but I would suggest a soft tile. The easier it will be the roof the less pressure on wall. Do not forget – this tree, a natural material, and better suited to the natural integer. 5. – Let's say we build a house, but the house still need to live and enough in harsh conditions. This year, the temperature in Central Russia reaches -43 Celsius. No need to rely on global warming, it will not. The house must be heated. In this issue the wooden houses out of competition. Therefore, the baths are built of wood. The wooden house is better retain heat, and the house of laminated veneer lumber better than all of the wood. Here are my arguments on their own home. Build a good home and quick, build a poor house "cheap" and slow. The best option, which few people guess is to buy a ready set of laminated veneer lumber and build it yourself. This approach allows you to save up to 50%, ie come in 2 times cheaper than building a turnkey basis. Just want to say that if you build a house made of wood, it is not Remember that it requires special care. Even if you build a house from glued beam, despite assurances from the manufacturer, will appear small cracks. To this we must be prepared and not rely on poor quality manufacturer. After all, the main producer here is nature. Love your house, take care of it and build.
