Finishing coats

Finishing coats provide a durable and decorative surface. Some gloss, eggshell and satin finishes are still based on oils and alkyd resins, although increasingly water-borne products are becoming predominant. Some water-borne gloss finishes tend to be visually softer and are more moisture-permeable than the traditional solvent-borne hard glosses. However, they have the advantage of quick drying without the evolution of solvent odour; generally they are more durable and do not yellow on ageing. Matt and silk finishes are usually vinyl or acrylic emulsions.
