Tips for Oil Bound Distemper

 

Oil bound distemper offers matchless finishing on walls of the house. It’s high quality, decorative and economical paint with quality of colors. The paint is suitable for various interior surfaces, and maintains excellent porosity in new and old buildings. Let’s know surface preparation, application method, benefits of oil bound distemper.  

Where to apply oil bound distemper?

Oil bound distemper can be applied on plaster and brick surfaces. It is used to ornament walls and ceilings. The paint is for interiors use only. You can apply oil bound distemper on two surfaces i.e. A. New Surface B. Old Surface

Prepare New Surface

Clean the surface

The surface should be sound and be cleaned thoroughly. Remove all dirt, dust, moulds and mortar droppings from the surface by washing and scraping.  

Prepare the surface applying putty

Any unevenness in the surface should be repaired by applying putty with plaster of Paris, mixed with white lead on entire surface including filling up undulations/unevenness.  

Do sandpapering

The surface should be rubbed down with fine grade sand paper for smoothness.

Prepare Old Surface

Clean the surface

Old surface should thoroughly be cleaned by removing dirt, dust, grease, all loose materials, scales etc. and by rubbing with sand paper.

Repair unevenness

All patches should be repaired with putty, made of Paris of Plaster and white lead.

Do sandpapering

The surface should be made smooth by sandpapering and cleaning thoroughly of dirt.

Apply priming coat


A.  On dry plaster surface

Priming coat should be applied with distemper primer which is of same brand as oil bound distemper is made of.

B. On wet plaster surface

Cement primer should be applied on wet surface instead of distemper primer. 

C.  On old surface

No primer coat is necessary for old work.

Prepare mix of oil bound distemper

Step 1: Clean the container

The container should be cleaned with warm and soapy water before mixing the solution. 

Step 2: Mix appropriate quantity of water and distemper

Add water about 0.5 to 0.65 liters per Kg. to thick paste of distemper slowly as oil bound distemper is available in thick paste form.

Step 3: Add pigment according to the required color and shade. 

Apply oil bound distemper    

Applying on new surface

Do sandpapering before distempering

After the priming coat is dry at least for 48 hours, the surface should be sandpapered lightly to make it smooth for receiving distemper. Care should be taken not to rub priming coat. All loose particles should be dusted off after rubbing.
     

Apply first coat of distemper properly

Apply one coat of distemper properly; which is diluted with thinner (water), with brushes in horizontal strokes immediately followed by vertical strokes that together constitute one coat.  Keep at least 24 hours time interval between two successive coats to let the preceding coat dries properly. 

Apply second coat

The second or subsequent coat should be applied in the same way as the first. Two or more coats of distemper as necessary should be applied on primer coat to obtain even shade.

Applying on old surface

Apply distemper on old surface in the same way as on new surface. One or more coats of distemper as necessary should be applied to obtain even and uniform shade.

Remember before applying oil bound distemper

  • Apply a coat of alkali resistant primer paint and allow drying for at least 48 hours if oil bound distemper is done on newly plastered surface. 
  • Use distemper primer and oil bound distemper of same brand.  
  • Make use of 15 CM double bristle distemper brush.
  • Clean containers and brushes in hot water with soap solution. 
  • Protect door, windows, electrical fixtures, and floors, fittings of door and windows and furniture from splashes of oil bound distemper.
  • Clean immediately if any drop of distemper falls down on any object. 
  • Do not apply distemper in cold conditions i.e. when the temperature is below 5 degree centigrade.

Usually, the biggest challenge in a business is selling the product.  Instead of building a paint factory, you should become wholesaler of an existing paint manufacturer.  Once you have established relationships with the buyers you can open your own manufacturing and move your buyers towards that. This approach requires significantly less investment. 

Regards

Acrylic paints are more durable, smoother and have quick drying properties in comparison to Oil Bound Distemper.
