These are commonly used gloss levels for surfaces listed above. Gloss may be affected by texture, porosity of the surface and atmospheric conditions. Please contact a Dunn-Edwards representative or your local store for specific product availability.
When flat paints touch-up, it makes it easier to hide minor repairs, which saves time on the job.
Paint is applied to a 2 x 2 ft. unprimed drywall panel using an airless sprayer. The right side of the panel is left as is while the left side is back rolled. It is allowed to dry overnight. Touch-up is done on both sides of the panel with a 1½” brush and a ¼” nap roller. The brush touch-up is done vertically and horizontally, making an L-shape. Rolled touch-up is done vertically, making a square. Touch-up panels are evaluated visually.
When two painted surfaces come into contact, such as a door and door jamb, they can stick together, or block. When that happens, the paint can peel from the surface. ACRI-WALL® clearly beats the Regional and National Brands, as their paint is sticking together and peeling from the surface.
Block Resistance Test Method: Paints are applied to white charts and allowed to dry for 24 hours. The charts are then folded over each other. A weight is then placed on them to force the painted surfaces together. After 24 hours, the face-to-face charts are pulled apart to see if the dried paint stuck together.
