Enamel paint is a type of paint that can come in several finishes. Most
predominantly, enamel paint has a glossy or polished look. It can also have an
opaque or rather obscure finish. A common feature with all enamel paints is that
they are hard, durable and washable. Due to these qualities, enamel paints are
used on a wide variety of surfaces.
Enamel paints are any that are hard, washable and usually glossy. They can be
oil-based or alkyd-based, which dry slower and harder than water-based enamels.
Oil-based paints have a strong solvent odor, and all cleanup is done with paint
thinner or mineral spirits. Water-based (also called latex or acrylic) paints
are easier to use, dry faster and have a fairly low odor. Enamels may also be
urethane or polyurethane, in either water or a solvent base. Enamels typically
come in several sheens, from eggshell or low-luster to satin, semigloss and
high-gloss. Specialized enamels, often faster-drying, are used for painting
appliances and flooring. Some enamels are heat-resistant.
The fact that enamel paint is very durable and easily washable makes it ideal to
be used on certain areas in the kitchen that are frequently exposed to common
dirt and stains.
Using enamel paint to paint door and window edges is very popular. The
borders and edges when painted with enamel paint look nice while also having the
benefit of being long-lasting
Enamel paint is also used in bathrooms. Bathrooms by nature are made up of shiny
utilities and tiles, so glossy enamel matches up well when used in these spaces.
It can be used on window and door sills or borders. Enamel paint can also be
used to paint any cabinets or other furniture used to store bathroom items.
Enamel paint is ideal for wood and metal surfaces, and this makes it popular
with many. Besides the advantages mentioned above, it is also easy to apply by
any means, including a paintbrush, roller or even spray. This makes it even more
practical and popular.
Enamel paints can be applied by brush, roller or spray equipment, depending on
the type of paint and purpose. Follow label directions for application methods
and drying time, and remember that in almost all cases, several thin coats are
better than one or two thick coats.
