1. What kind of materials are used in wall care putty?
ANS – The kind of materials it has are white cement, minerals, and polymers. It’s a powdered form of putty that is mixed with water to create a solution before applying it to walls. The application of wall putty reduces the worsening of your building walls. Wall putty helps the walls to protect them from undergoing unwanted flaking, water, and heat absorbent.
2. What is the maximum allowable gap between the first coat and the second coat of wall putty?
Ans – After the first application of wall putty, it is suggested to at least wait for 4-6 hours to get the wall putty completely dry before applying the second coat. You may also leave it overnight to get the desired finish. When the first coat dries completely, clean the surface using sandpaper to remove all the dirt if there’s any, and then apply a second coat of wall putty.
3. What’s the best filler for cracks developed in wall putty applied over wood and plaster?
Ans – Acrylic Wall Putty is one of the best for filling any cracks you have found. It can be applied either on wooden surfaces or plaster surfaces. You can also use wood filler on wooden surfaces to fill cracks, nail holes, gouges, and other defects in finished as well as unfinished wood.
If there’s any structural damage then a different approach is needed for that.
4. Is it right for giving white cement on the interior wall to mix putty with white cement as whitewash please answer?
Ans – White cement is basically used to give the walls of a building a good finish for your paint. And if you mix putty with white cement before painting then a primer coat is not necessary. This is best for only interior walls because if you use white cement putty on exteriors then it will reduce the paint life. That is why you should invest in a higher quality paint instead on the application of white cement putty for exterior walls.
5. Can we apply water to the wall putty If the wall is dirty?
Ans – If there’s any dirt on the wall it is recommended to clean the wall using a mixture of dishwashing detergent and warm water. Damp the paper towel into a mixture and clean the wall in a circular motion to remove all the dust and dirt from the wall.
6. Can emulsion paint be used on steel structures?
Ans – Steel structures are prone to oxidation and weathering. To control the appearance of rust and weathering formulated paint is essential for painting steels.
Emulsion paint can be applied as an undercoat of oil-based paints or enamel paint on steel or on metal structures for great results and it produces a tough and rigid finish. It has more durability than other paints.
If the steel structures come in contact with water the emulsion paint doesn’t affect the quality and color of your steel structures.
But before painting on steel you should apply primer to hold the paint well otherwise it will oxidize if not properly sealed.
7. Which paint brand has the best white color in emulsion?
Ans – White is a versatile neutral color for paint. It makes rooms spacious and brighter.
The right way to choose white is to identify the best shade to fit your style, home, and lighting in your room.
I would suggest you purchase Sakarni Emulsion Paint. It’s one of the best white emulsion paints. It is designed to meet its customer’s expectations and gives you a modern and smooth finish with no patchiness. This emulsion paint ensures that the white color doesn’t fade away or get yellowish over time. You can also use Sakarni emulsion paint indoors because it has low VOC content.
8. What quality of water is required for emulsion paint?
Ans – Emulsion paint is a water-based paint that contains small polymer particles inside it. Emulsion paint is created by combining the pigment with an emulsifier like oil-based or water. We get the color of the paint because of its pigment.
It is important to thin the paint by adding water as per the requirement to get a desired finishing on the wall. Water requirement is depending upon the application techniques you are using to paint an emulsion. If you’re using a Brush, you need water to form fairly thin paint but in the case of spraying, thickness totally depends upon the spray equipment. Using Roller, emulsion paints need to be quite thicker for painting.
9. HOW TO APPLY WHITE CEMENT ON JOINTS TO AVOID SEEPAGE OF WATER?
Ans- The use of White cement is for joint filling gaps in ceramic tiles, vitrified tiles, and marble flooring. White cement is an affordable option and can be used quickly to fix repairs.
If you mix the white cement with color pigments this will give you a matching tile color. But remember it’s not suitable for tile adhesive, for that you must use tile adhesive instead of white cement for a better output.
Below we have discussed how to fill the joints using white cement to avoid seepage of water:
- Mark the spots where you want to fill white cement.
- In a container add a small amount of white cement along with a little bit of water to it and mix this up.
- Now fill the joints with the white cement and push it into the gaps with the help of a putty knife.
- If there’s any extra cement, remove it to avoid any bubbles or gaps.
- After you have filled all the joints, you need to give it time to dry. This process takes around 10-15 minutes.
- If there’s any extra material after it dries scrap off it to avoid any unevenness.
10. How can I recognize between the white cement and PoP?
Ans – The main difference between White cement and Pop is its composition. White cement is made from Limestone and clay while plaster of Paris is obtained from Gypsum. The plaster of Paris isn’t as strong as cement. White Cement is ideally used in construction and to fill the cracks. On the other hand, PoP is used for moldings, false ceilings, and casting items. It is used for interior designs.
11. How to use only white cement with waterproofing?
Ans – The advantage of white cement is that it can withstand the highest temperature and has a waterproof effect. It is used to fix the tiles, and to prevent the walls and roofs from water. The only thing that the white cement is used for is to make the building seem nicer. It can be used internally and externally concretes to provide a smooth aesthetic finish and increase the lifespan of topcoat paint.
A ratio of 2:1 of white cement and water is required to obtain a mixture. Only two coats of this mixture are required to evenly cover the walls.
12. Which is the best material to fill the big nail holes in the wall? White cement, Wall Putty, or plaster of Paris?
Ans – A hole over 1/2 inches diameter or larger than this needs a more rigid material to fix it. The best is to fill this hole with Pop as it hardens quickly in a couple of minutes and then put wall putty over it.
For your better understanding, mentioned the steps:
- Firstly, sand off the unevenness around the hole.
- Then fill a nail hole with Pop
- Once it dries, apply the wall putty over it to repair the hole completely and smoothly.
- When everything is done, it’s good to do sanding and clean off the surface to remove any dust and dirt.
- Now your wall is ready for the primer and paint.
