see how you can Produce Emulsion Paint

Materials required in Emulsion Paint production is as follows

  1. Water (H2O)
  2. Titanium Dioxide (TiO2)
  3. Pigments (Paste or Oxides)
  4. Calcium Carbonate Filler (CalCo)
  5. Calgon
  6. Acrylic
  7. Defoamer
  8. Natrosol
  9. Formalin/Ammonia (preservatives)

PRODUCTION PROCEDURES.

  • STEP 1: The first step in Emulsion paint production (also in other types of paint) is the Measurement of chemicals or materials that would be used. Accurate measurement is carried out on a weighing scale (for powdery chemicals) and graduated containers (for liquids) before production commencement.
  • STEP 2: Pour water into an empty drum (selecting the size of drums according to the quantity that is to be produced). Add Titanium Dioxide (titania) and tinge with calgon (note that not all colors to be produced require titanium dioxide, colors such as national green, laterite red and rich brown do not require titanium dioxide). Add Pigments into the drum (if desired color to be produced is not white, say Bamboo color which is the combination of Yellow oxide, Red paste tinged with Black paste). Suspend the electric mixer deep down into the drum and mix for about 5-10mins depending on the quantity been produced (the time interval for this process if done manually is for about 10-15mins).
  • STEP 3: Add the required amount (in kg) of Calcium carbonate filler (dolomite or calcite) into the drum and stir properly for about 10-15mins to prevent the formation of chumps in the pigments.

NOTE:  Dolomite is used when the paint to be produced is pure white and Cacite when the paint is off white (dirty white).

  • STEP 4: Add the required amount of Acrylic into the drum and stir very well. Other additives like defoamer and formalin is added homogeneously. The last addictive to be added is the Natrosol (thickener) which is first of all mixed in little amount of water before its added into the drum and then stirred rigorously and uniformly for about 5-10mins (In some cases the preservative is added last when the production is carried out manually to prevent the Nitrosol from blocking and this happens when Ammonia is used as the preservative).
  • STEP 5: Wash and clean all equipments immediately after production is achieved.

NOTE: As you are turning it you might be a little fidgeted that it is not up to the amount you want, in this case, water is added with some amount of Natrosol until you get the thickness you desire.

EMULSION PAINT DESCRIPTION.

Emulsion or water based latex paint is usually used to paint interior walls and ceilings. Some emulsion paint can be used to paint woodwork. For suitable purposes this has advantages in the following:

  • Fast drying
  • Low toxicity/ less smell
  • Low cost
  • Easy application
  • Easier cleaning of equipments.
