Paint to buy what errors exist?

Formaldehyde pollution is listed as the number one hazard. Many consumers believe that the biggest volatilizer of formaldehyde is actually paint. More friends said that the greater the taste of the paint, the more formaldehyde volatilized, and the smaller the odor of formaldehyde, the less formaldehyde volatilized, and the less harm it produces.

In fact, this is a cognitive error, the choice of paint health or not, to examine from many aspects. Below, interested friends may wish to take a look at it.

Misunderstanding 1. heavy price and ignore quality

Many people in the purchase of wall paint, it is easy to go into the heavy price and ignore the quality of the misunderstanding. Some people think that the higher the price of paint, the better, so when choosing to find the most expensive to buy, but the experimental results show that this is not the case. The other extreme consumer is in order to save money, the lower the price when buying, the better, so that a lot of money is saved, but the future wall quality and indoor environment are worrying. Therefore, it is suggested that we should pay attention to the quality of wall paint while considering the price as much as possible, and generally choose reputable brands.

Misunderstanding 2. heavy packaging and ignore the inner

When consumers buy latex paint, they always look at its packaging, which is very necessary. But pay attention to the packaging of good-looking paint is not necessarily inherent quality. Some manufacturers in order to attract customers, in the product packaging, deliberately exaggerated product performance. Therefore, it is recommended that consumers not only look at the product packaging, but also pay attention to other aspects, such as viewing the detailed inspection report of the product.

Misunderstanding 3. color card and wall color exactly the same

Many consumers think that the color of the paint on the color card is exactly the same as the color of the wall, which is a misunderstanding. 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 that consumers see on the color card is usually different from the actual color of the paint on the wall. Therefore, it is suggested that when consumers choose the color in the color card, it is best to choose the color number that is slightly lighter than the one they like. If they like dark walls, they can be adjusted to be consistent with the color of the selected color card.

Mistakes 4. not to estimate the amount of paint used in advance

Many consumers do not estimate the amount of paint used in advance, for fear that they will buy less paint and always buy more. This may cause a waste of materials, increase the cost of home improvement, while the accumulation of excessive paint on the construction safety also caused a certain impact. Therefore, it is recommended that consumers must look at the area of the construction area before construction, so as to estimate the amount of materials purchased. A relatively simple way to estimate the amount of paint used is to apply the amount of paint required (L)= (wall area x2.5)/area that can be applied per liter of paint.

Misunderstanding 5. odorless is environmentally friendly

Many people judge the safety of wall paint by smelling the smell, and think that low-odor or odorless wall paint is environmentally friendly. This is a big mistake. Because odorless can be achieved by adding flavors or using low-odor materials, not all odorless coatings are environmentally friendly and non-toxic. The most professional way to judge the environmental protection of wall paint is to see whether its environmental indicators meet the standards. There are three key environmental indicators of wall paint: VOC, free formaldehyde, heavy metals.
