Five common misunderstandings in the purchase of e

  • Detail

Paint is a decoration material that emits the most formaldehyde. Many friends now choose environmentally friendly paint in decoration. Is environmentally friendly paint really environmentally friendly? Our understanding of paint is not enough, and there are still many misunderstandings. Here are five common misunderstandings in our daily life

misunderstanding 1. Pay attention to price and ignore quality

when buying wall paint, many people are easy to fall into the misunderstanding of paying attention to price and ignoring quality. Some people think that the higher the price of paint is, the better, so when choosing, look for the most expensive one, but the experimental results show that this is not the case. The other extreme consumer is to save money. The lower the price when buying, the better. This saves a lot of money, but the wall quality and indoor environment will be worrying in the future. Therefore, it is recommended that you try to pay attention to the quality of wall finish while considering the price, and generally choose reputable big brands

misunderstanding 2. Re packaging and ignoring internal

when consumers buy latex paint, they will always look at its packaging, which is very necessary. However, it should be noted that the coating with good packaging may not be of excellent internal quality. In order to attract customers, some manufacturers make a big fuss on the packaging of products, deliberately exaggerating the performance and efficacy of products. Therefore, it is suggested that consumers should pay attention to other aspects besides the product packaging, such as checking the detailed test report of the product

myth 3. The color card is completely consistent with the wall color

many consumers think that the paint color on the color card is completely consistent with the color painted on the wall, which is a myth. Because of light reflection and other reasons, after the four walls of the room are painted, the wall color will look darker than the color card. The color consumers see on the color card is usually different from the actual color after the paint is applied to the wall. Therefore, it is suggested that when choosing colors in the color card, consumers should choose a color number that is slightly lighter than their favorite color. If they like dark walls, they can adjust the color to be consistent with the selected color card

misunderstanding 4. Do not estimate the amount of paint used in advance

many consumers do not estimate the amount of paint used in advance. They are afraid to buy less paint, and the more they buy, the better. This may cause a waste of materials and increase the cost of home decoration. At the same time, the accumulation of too much paint will also have a certain impact on the construction safety. Therefore, it is suggested that consumers should look at the area of the construction area before construction, so as to estimate the amount of materials to be purchased. The relatively simple method to estimate the amount of paint used is: the amount of paint required for one coat (L) = (wall area x2.5)/the area that can be painted per liter of paint

myth 5. No smell is environmental protection

many people judge the safety of wall paint by smelling, and believe that low odor or no smell wall paint is environmental protection. This is a big mistake. Because odorless coatings can be achieved by adding essence or using low flavor materials, odorless coatings are not all environmentally friendly and non-toxic. The most professional way to judge the environmental protection of wall paint is to see whether its environmental protection indicators meet the standards. There are three key environmental indicators of wall paint: VOC, free formaldehyde and heavy metals
