Tile paint, which one to choose?
Choosing a quality tile paint is the first step for anyone who wants to repaint tiling without worry.
Whether your project is to repaint bathroom tiles, credenza tiles or you need a floor tile paint for any room at home, the paint must guarantee a very simple method of application, that is to say, dispensing with an undercoat, or worse, a prior sanding of the tiles. They are called “ special tile paint “, with direct application without distinction of support: wall tile, floor tile and worktop in tile and kitchen splashback .
Also falls into this category for painting tiles resin paint which is suitable for all media too.
Why is the quality of tile painting essential?
When you have to repaint the tiles, the goal is clear: the paint should not flake, scratch or form cracks after a few months. It is also important that the tiling paint used is resistant to heat (oven area, hob, etc.) and has a perfect hold around damp areas (sink, bathtub, shower).
To find a paint that meets these conditions, we advise you to eliminate classic acrylic paints on tiles, which is applied after a special undercoat even if it is protected by a varnish, cheaper than paint tiles, but of lower quality.
Likewise, for 1st price tiling paint brands. Their application poses adhesion concerns, the layers are often to be multiplied to properly cover the tiling and their resistance over time is not reliable.
