Types of putty

Perhaps, any repair does not do without application of modern putties. These materials intended for alignment of various surfaces are various by the form, to assignment and type.

Today it is possible to find dozens of types of putties in sale, part of them is positioned as material, prepared for use, part – as basis for mix preparation. There are basic, there are decorative putties. Actually, basis at all materials which are applied to alignment of walls and ceilings – calcic mix (chalk or plaster structure, most often) and glue basis (joiner's or flour glue).

To putty walls Germans have thought up, it was quicker and more simply, than to grind stones.

Main types of putties

Professionals allocate oil, varnish and glue putties, all others – only from version. The main difference of materials is in what sort the film is formed on surface when drying. The oil putty is suitable for difficult finishing work, it dries long therefore the lesser number of masters works with it. The main component of such material – drying oil which provides good adhesion and moisture resistance. Oil putties are irreplaceable when finishing bathrooms, pools, hammams and so forth damp rooms. The glue putty for 10% consists of glue therefore it very viscous and is easily applied on any surfaces. Such mix does not demand any special surface preparation, besides after drawing easily spreads and fills with itself roughnesses. For alignment of walls under pokleyka of wall-paper use hybrid – oil-adhesive putty, this look is intended only for internal finishing work, does not smell and quickly dries. Varnish options too gradually leave the household market, giving way to acrylic versions which by right are considered as universal. The structure of structures fine-grained and easily grinds off abrasive paper. The ready surface looks polished therefore quite often add pigments to structure, and the ready surface is just covered with protective structure.

The varnish putty is used in industrial mechanical engineering today, in life it is not convenient and is not functional

Unlike the previous options the acrylic putty does not burst and does not shrink, nonprofessionals because thickness of the put layer actually does not matter use it: the structure evenly dries out and does not pour. Acrylic putties happen two types: internal and front. The last have components which increase material durability. Besides front putty more flexible.

Special materials for ottelka

Separately it is worth mentioning such material as shpakrit ("putty"). If on sale you meet universal putty in bags and kegs, then shpakrit is on sale, as a rule, in small container, and the price is slightly higher than it. This finishing material is intended for "finishing" works – closings up of joints, dressing, filling of seams. Shpakril is on sale in the form of white paste, to him the variety of colors is issued. However, standard coloring can be found and ready, quite often even for convenience they are sold in tubes from miscellaneous diameter nozzles. Decorative putties a little in what differ from basic. Their feature only in additional components in the form of small glass, pigment, impregnations and so forth.
