  • It’s made to combat mildew as well as fading. In addition, they have to be fade resistant as they face very high temperatures.

  • The resins used for exterior paint can be softer so that they can withstand temperature changes and ill effects due to exposure to moisture. They are supposed to be flexible and not easily crack on expansion/contraction.

  • Exterior paint must be tougher and should be capable of resisting peeling and crumbling.

  • It’s supposed to water resistant; hence they are made waterproof.

  • Exterior paint contains many additives like pesticides and fungicides.

  • Exterior Paints release more volatile organic compound as it cures, making it unsafe for indoor use.

Surface Preparation

  • New surfaces must be allowed to cure completely. It is recommended to allow 28 days as the curing time for new surfaces. Surface should be free from any loose paint, dust or grease. Growths of fungus, algae or moss should be removed by wire brushing and water. In case of areas having excessive dampness using Stanrose Damp Block to limit further dampness. When the underlying surface exhibits chalkiness, in spite of thorough surface cleaning, use Stanrocrackseal. In case of dents and holes use Stanrose Wall Putty or white cement and fine sand in the ratio 1:3.
