FAQs - Products

Frequently asked questions on products

Can the products be applied during rainy season?

Well, every product has its own drying time. And its quite risky to paint during the rainy season. If in case, you go ahead with the painting and it rains heavily, not allowing enough time for the paint to dry , you might have to face problems. Hence, we recommend you to observe the weather condition and then go ahead with painting.

How long should one wait before painting in case of a new construction?

You need to allow a curing period of 45 days for exteriors, and 3-6 months for interiors.

What does curing period mean? why should one follow this process?

Curing period means the walls should be left bare. This is because the paint should not react with the chemical present in the cement.

Can ink or other stains be washed off?

Most wall paints made by Asian Paints are washable, compared to other brands. Common stains, like pencil marks, can be easily cleaned. But, it is difficult to clean tough stains. You may try using a mild detergent to clean the stains.

How do the stains on the floor be removed after the painting is over?

Any paint stains should be wiped off immediately. Use a mop and clean up each room after the painting is over. Enamel paint stains require thinner for cleaning. You can also use turpentine to scrub them off the floor.

Do any asian paints paint offer protection against termites?

Yes. If entire furniture is coated with Wood Finish, it is difficult for the termites to attack the surface.

What paints can be used on the surface where there is already attack of termites?

If the termites have already infected the furniture, you will have to treat the furniture for termites, with the solutions easily available in the market, e.g. Termiguard. No Wood Finish is Termite proof.

What is the expiry date of the paints?

If you haven't opened the lid of the product, it will last for next 3 years from the date of manufacture of the Paint. If you have opened the lid of product, we recommend you use the product within the next 24 hours.

What is acrylic?

Acrylic basically means water based products, which have High Density Particles that result in an excellent finish on your walls.

What are emulsions?

Emulsions are acrylic based paints, which are water based. These are available for Interior Wall surfaces as well as Exterior Wall surfaces.

What is the difference between emulsions and distempers?

Both Emulsions & Distempers have a few similarities as both are durable, and offer a wide range of shades to choose from. But some clear differences are that Emulsion paints give a silky and smooth finish to your walls, are more durable and long lasting, in addition to offering a wider range of shades to choose from.

Are emulsion paints costlier than distemper paints?

We offer you a choice in Emulsions itself. Royale, which is a premium brand, is more costlier than distempers. Tractor Emulsions are comparable, price wise to any Distemper.

What is the difference between regular and premium emulsions?

All emulsion paints give a smooth finish and soft feel to the wall. They come in lovely shades and are long lasting. Royale is the most premium emulsion. It looks better on your walls whist imparting a mild shine to the walls, that gives your room a silky and classy look. With the right lighting, your walls will appear to glow.

What is the difference between solvent-based and water-based paints?

Water-based paints are diluted with water, while solvent-based paints are diluted with solvents like Mineral Turpentine Oil (MTO). Emulsions are water-based paints while enamels, lustre and matt finishes are solvent-based paints. Emulsions look better on walls and are ideal for drawing rooms. Solvent-based paints are ideally suited for kitchens and bathrooms since they are water-resistant. Enamels are used on wood and Metals.

What are primers and putty?

Primers and putties are applied on the paintable surface before the final paint is applied. Before you apply putty or primer you have to sand the wall with sandpaper. Putty is a kind of paste prepared for applying on walls to fill in any minor dents or to level the surface. Since putty is absorbent, a coat of paint applied directly over it would lead to the paint being absorbed unevenly, leading to patches. A primer layer on top of the putty is a must. It takes away the unevenness caused by putty and the final paint comes out perfect. Thus, you get both protection and good finish.

What is the role of primer paint?

Primer paint is a preliminary layer of coating that is applied on the materials prior to the paint. It ensures that the paint adhesion to the surface is proper, enhances the durability of paint, and imparts extra safety to the surface being painted. Primer also seals pores in permeable materials, and averts bleeding from knots. If suitably applied, primers will enhance the life of the paint, and also improve its appearance.

What is the pre-painting procedure for interiors?

The pre-painting procedure for Interiors includes the following steps: 1) Check surface for dampness or water seepage. 2) Rectify the water seepage problem at the source. This could mean repairing leaking plumbing or cracks in the exterior walls. 3) Any loose plaster should be removed from the wall. Check for loose plaster by tapping on the walls. Any hollow sound means the plaster is loose. 4) Masonry work to be undertaken to fill up all cracks and repair broken plaster.

What should be taken care of while painting?

While Painting you need to keep in mind some Tips: 1) To save on costs, buy paint in the largest pack possible. 2) Stir and strain the paint thoroughly before application. 3) Rectify existing surface problems like cracks/seepage, etc before the actual painting process. 4) Ensure that the paint is bought from an authorized dealer. 5) Ensure that the shop has an additional quantity of paint in case you need it later (of course, at our dealers especially Colour World, you will not find this problem.) 6) If you are using thinners, primers and undercoats, ensure that they are of good quality. 7) Always clean spilt/splashed paint with a recommended thinner while it is still wet.

What precautions should be taken while painting?

While painting, one must take a few precautions, such as: 1) Do not use cotton rags for cleaning, use soft synthetic or muslin cloth.  Otherwise, threads will stick to the surface leading to a patchy, uneven finish. 2) Do not apply the next coat without the first one drying, otherwise you will have a wrinkly, patchy finish as well as loss of gloss. 3) Do not sandpaper very hard, otherwise there will be scratches, roughness and poor gloss. 4) Do not apply very thick coats, otherwise there will be a thick rough finish, resulting in slow drying. 5) Avoid mixing paints yourself. Buy readymade paints as far as possible, otherwise there will be patchy and inconsistent columns in the finish.

Can one use kerosene for thinning of paint?

We do not recommend you use kerosene for thinning of paint, otherwise there will be delayed drying and reduction in gloss.

What happens if thick layer of putty is applied?

If a thick layer of putty is applied there is a possibility of cracks developing after a period of time.

Can one mix paints by themselves?

Avoid mixing paints yourself.  Buy readymade paints as far as possible, otherwise there will be patchy and inconsistent columns in the finish.

Can paint be applied directly on putty?

We recommend you do not apply finished paint directly over putty, otherwise you will get a uneven finish. Always apply a coat of primer over putty and then the final coat.

Are asian paints products lead free?

Yes, all our products have no added lead.

Is there a discount on asian paints products?

We do not retail our products directly. You will have to purchase the paints from our authorized dealer, and for any discounts, it’s the dealers discretion. Please note the pricing is done in such a way that the larger quantity you buy, the lesser you pay in proportion.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of cement paints?

There are many advantages to cement paints: 1) Economy paint for exterior surfaces. 2) It has slight waterproofing property due to cement content. 3) It also lasts upto 1 year. There are certains disadvantages as well, namely: 1) You will have to wet the surface with water and cure (sprinkle water) atleast twice a day after painting for 2 days. This needs water in ample quantity. 2) It is to be used within 2 hours as cement solidifies after this and becomes useless. 3) Very limited range of shades due to alkaline nature of the surface unlike hundreds of shades in exterior emuslion paints. 4) Life is less than compared to exterior emuslion paints. Sometimes problem of lime blooming (patchiness, white streaks)is associated with cement paint.

Does asian paints make a cement paint?

Cement paint, though used extensively for exteriors, does not last very long. We do have a brand of cement paint.  However, it is best to use a good exterior paint finish like Apex Ultima, Apex Weather Proof Exterior Emulsion or a more economical paint like Ace Exterior Emulsion.

Are all paints washable?

Royale, Apcolite Emulsion, Tractor Distemper, Apcolite Lustre, Apcolite Matt and all the enamel paints from Asian Paints are completely washable. They give a good finish to walls and can very easily clean any dirt or stains.

Do paints need to be mixed to get a good colour?

It is not a good idea to mix paints to get a particular shade. You will not get exactly the same shade from wall to wall, and the finish will be patchy and irregular.  So, it is always better to use available shades. They are standard across all packs and never vary. Asian Paints offers you a wide range of shades to choose from.

How can the walls be maintained in a good condition? how should one keep the painted walls clean?

You can dust your walls from time to time. Remove stains with a sponge and mild soap while it is still wet. Take care not to press too hard while cleaning.

What precautions should be taken before painting furniture?

Prepare a smooth surface by sanding the surface with emery paper. Then, clean the surface to make it free of wood particles and dust. Apply Apcolite Wood Filler using a muslin cloth. Allow the filler coat to dry for 1 to 2 hours.

How quickly does the paint dry?

Duration of painting depends on the number of rooms you plan to paint and how many painters are working. Paint drying time for Emulsion is 4 hours minimum, though 6 to 8 hours is preferred. Distemper takes 6 to 8 hours, while Enamel, Primer, Lustre and Matt Finish requires 8 to 10 hours. Touchwood takes 6 to 8 hours.

How can walls be protected from insects?

Paints do not attract insects. Kitchens can have insects due to the presence of food. Since most paints are washable, it is easy to keep the walls clean. However it is advisable to opt for regular pest control in your house.

Should a newly painted house be vacated for some time?

Your house will smell a little but it is not necessary to vacate it. Keep the windows open and the smell will disappear faster.

How many coats of paint should be applied?

What is the difference between royale lustre and royale luxury emulsion / apcolite emulsion?

The primary difference between Royale Lustre and Royale Luxury Emulsion/Apcolite Emulsion is that Royale Lustre helps in the development of Daana Pattern. This is basically due to the difference in viscosity of the product compared to other emulsions and Lustre finish always has a slightly higher sheen level than any other emulsion. Lustre finish can also be used as a flat finish without Daana Pattern, where it will look and perform like Royale Emulsion but with slightly higher sheen. Royale Lustre would primarily be used for bringing out the Daana Pattern on the walls which is not possible with a regular Emulsion. Also the surface preparation for Royale Lustre for Daana Pattern is different where Primer + Putty + Asthar (1 part enamel and 1 part solvent primer) is used for base preperation and then the top coat of Royale Lustre is applied without dilution with a long nap roller to bring out the Daana Pattern. In case you would want to compare different emulsions, please use the comparison application on our website: www.asianpaints.com.

Which is better - asian paints oil based primer or water based primer? an opinion is that if one uses oil primer, the paint durability is not as much as water based primer.

Oil Primer is nothing but Decoprime Wall Primer -Solvent Thinnable. It will not reduce any durability of the Topcoat. It has good compatibility with all Asian Paints Interior Products.

1. What is the difference between - kerosene oil, tarpin oil, white/mineral spirit & mineral turpentine. 2. Uses of above in painting application?

Kerosene is composed of saturated aliphatic hydrocarbon. It has low or no aromatic components. Its boiling range is around 150 - 300 degree Celsius. Mineral Turpentine Oil has up to 40% aromatic constituents, which gives Mineral Turpentine Oil good solvent power and the distillation range is 150 to 240 degree Celsius. White spirit is a petroleum-derived clear, transparent liquid. Its boiling point is 65 degree Celsius. All the above solvents are used to cut the viscosity of the solvent based paints. But the solvents are recommended based on the product and thinner compatibility. If the wrong thinner is used, it may lead to issue of poor hardness, less gloss and less durability.

What is the substitute of mineral turpentine (as you recommended for touchwood as a thinner) because mineral turpentine is not available with paint dealers?

Kerosene/White Spirit are not suitable as a olvent due to incompatible chemical properties of Touchwood. It may lead to lesser durability, poor gloss and slow drying. MTO or Mineral Turpentine Oil is commonly available in Paint Dealer shops/ Hardware shops. It is often locally called as "Tarpin Oil". Please check with the Dealer if the solvent that he calls "Tarpin Oil" is used as solvent for Enamel Paints. If yes, then it can also be used for Touchwood.

What is the difference between say pu palette interior and melamyne - any advantage/disadvantage of using one over the other?

PU Palette interior is a luxury product and part of our colour range of PU. A total of 143 shades are available within this range. Out of these 113 are solid shades and 30 are metallic shades. Since the requirement is of an opaque shade, PU Palette interior would be the right choice. PU Palette offers significant advantages over Melamyne in terms of its structural properties. It's stain, heat, scratch and solvent resistance is higher and so is its durability. Also the gloss level of PU Palette is higher as compared to Melamyne.

How do I remove apex ultima stains from clothes?

I am creating home products for which i need to use enamel paints. however the lead content in enamel based paints has been a concern for me and how do i market them from a health and safety perspective. please do advice on your advice on lead content in your paints.

None of our products including enamels contain any ‘added lead’. There might be some lead particles either in the raw material used or created during formation of enamel and thus it will not be completely lead free. However there is no added lead in our enamel paints. There is no measure of how much lead is present in enamels.

Please give me advise on the cleaning instructions for asian royal paint and apex ultima.

Cleaning Instructions: 1) For Royale – Take a mild soap solution (5% in water) or Liquid soap/detergent powder and wipe the walls using a household sponge. Wipe the entire wall to avoid any patches. 2) For Ultima – Clean the exterior wall using only water. Do not use jet pressure while cleaning or you might damage the paint.

I have a newly constructed flat. is it appropriate to paint the interiors of flat during the monsoons?

Since the construction is new, it is necessary to check the alkalinity of the plastered surface. The same can be checked using ph paper (available in the market). If the alkalinity is high i.e. more than 12 then do not paint, wait for some time. If alkalinity is between 8-11, then painting can begin using the recommended painting system (check on Asian Paints website). Ensure there is no leakage/seepage, cracks on the walls or will affect the paint during or after monsoon.

We need your advice on right grade of paint to coat industrial wooden pallets. our need is as follows: wish to treat pallets to avoid termites and fungus. later on, we wish to paint the pallets to mask chemicals on the pallets and improve durability. please advise if you have any such paint.

We have not tested our products for anti termite applications. We can recommend the use of Touch Wood Exterior and PU Exterior for masking chemicals. We can apply these products on chemically treated pallets but have not tested the migration of these applied chemicals (present in treated pallets). This will improve the durability of pallet, but will not take care of wear and tear during fork lifting and operational movement of pallets.

Do you have any paint for the outdoor concrete fish pond outside my farmhouse?

We don’t have any paint that suits your requirement.

We are painting our building using apex ultima. what are the risks of doing the work in rainy season?

Ideally, exterior painting is not recommended while it’s raining. As each coat of exterior paint requires 3-4 hours as drying time and 24 hours for the paint film to get completely cureed. Therefore, it is not recommended to paint while its raining. In the case of after applying coat of paint, it rains within 4 hours then there are chances that paint film may wash away.

What is the difference between emulsion and enamel?

Emulsion paint is water based with some additives to make it more durable, but can usually be scrubbed off with water and detergent. Enamel paint is solvent based, and permanent. It can only be removed with a solvent. Use emulsion to cover large surfaces cheaply and where you may want to change the colour - use enamel paint (which is much more expensive).

What is the relationship between dry film thickness (dft) and wet film thickness (wft)?

The relationship between dry and wet film thickness depends on the volume of solids in the coating. Solids by volume is normally given as a percentage of the total volume of tha paint. DFT = WFT X solids by volume e.g. If Wet Film Thickness is 100 microns and solids by volume is 75% (0.75), Dry Film Thickness comes to be 75 microns.

On what factors does wet film thickness depend?

The applied wet film thickness depends on many variables such as the type of coating, application method (air pray, brush, roller, airless spray, electrostatic, tribo gun, etc.), equipment quality, operator, substrate material, the size and shape of the part etc. Incorrect coating thickness could lead to technical problems or excessive costs.

What problems can a very low dry film thickness lead to?

Extremely low dry film thickness can lead to: 1) Insufficient corrosion protection 2) Hiding power problems 3) Erosion - removal of paint film from selected areas 4) Grinning - underlying surface is visible 5) Rust Spotting 6) Undercutting - visual corrosion beneath the film

What problems can very high dry film thickness lead to?

Extremely high film thickness causes problems like: 1) Extra material costs 2) Sagging (Sags), Runs - downward movement of paint soon after application 3) Alligatoring - very large cracking 4) Cracking 5) Mud Cracking - paint appears as dried-out mud flat with network of random cracks 6) Tackiness - stickiness in film

What is the role of primer in paint?

Primer paint is the preliminary layer of coating that is applied on the materials prior to painting. It ensures that the paint adhesion to the surface is proper, enhances the durability of paint, and imparts extra safety to the surface being painted. Primer also seals pores in permeable materials, and averts bleeding from knots. If suitably applied, primers will enhance the life of the paint, and also improve the appearance.

What is the difference between exterior pu and interior pu?

Exterior PU has UV Guards which help against UV rays, also, wood in exterior tends to expand and contract more as compared to Interiors – Hence Exterior PU is flexible enough to not crack. Interiors on the other hand requires to be stronger in other properties like: 1) Scratch Resistance 2) Stain Resistance 3) Heat resistance, etc These properties and stronger in case of Interior PU.

Why are darker shades are more expensive?

Dark shades are more expensive due to the pigment's (mostly organicin) which are added to colour the base and get the required shade. Darker shades mean more quantity of pigments.
