What is Contract/ Factory Emulsion Paint?

Also known as Trade Paint, contract emulsion is a high-quality and simple to use kind of paint which allows professionals to complete their projects extremely quickly. Any professional painter or decorator will want to utilise the highest-quality paint for their client to provide the very best finish.

This kind of emulsion paint is ideal for use in large-scale properties, such as factories and other industrial environments. Contract emulsion can deliver a high-quality paint job to extremely large surfaces in all kinds of environments.

What Makes Contract/ Factory Emulsion Paints a Higher-Quality?

One of the main reasons that professional painters and decorators choose to take advantage of contract painters is that it is much easier to use. Trade paints have much more pigment in them than DIY paint. The pigments are the coloured dyes which give all kinds of paint its colour. As such, a trade-friendly factory emulsion paint may only require two coats to achieve the desired colour. A DIY alternative may require three coats of paint, which can greatly increase the time needed to complete the project.

Additionally, emulsion paint will also feature a higher opacity than DIY treatments. The opacity of the paint means how effectively the paint will be able to hide the substrate. A high-opacity paint will cover the wall, floor or ceiling beneath it more efficiently than DIY paints. This will result in a much cleaner, smoother and higher-quality paint job.

DIY paints, or non-factory contract paints, are typically low-opacity. That means you will normally be able to see some of the surface colour through them. This can be particularly irritating if you are covering over existing painted surfaces.

Why is Contract Emulsion Perfect for Factory Painting and Decorating?

Factories, and other large industrial spaces, will have large surface areas which require uniform painting. These surfaces can be extremely difficult to paint evenly, and it is common for industrial surfaces to be unpleasant to look at. Being able to see the texture of the substrate, or previous colours, can make a factory an extremely unpleasant place to spend your time.

Thanks to the high-quality and simplicity of contract/factory emulsion paint, you’ll be able to create an even surface across your property. This can help to make your industrial space look much brighter, cleaner and more welcoming to your employees and visitors.

These paints aren’t just used in factories either. They can be applied to a wide range of industrial properties and surfaces, including:

  • Warehouses and Storage Spaces. 
  • Loading and Delivery Bays. 
  • Power Plants. 
  • All Kinds of Manufacturing Buildings. 
  • Refrigeration and Cold Storage Properties. 
  • Data Hosting and Telecom Spaces. 
  • R&D Areas. 
  • Showrooms. 

How Easy is Factory Emulsion Paint to Repair?

Heavy machinery and harmful impacts are all common in industrial spaces. As such, you need a painted surface which can easily be repaired in the event of any damage, including:

  • Heavy Impacts. 
  • Heavy Footfall. 
  • Spillages. 
  • Machinery Movement. 
  • Standard Wear and Tear. 

Whenever this paint does become chipped or otherwise damaged, you can easily re-apply the paint. This factory emulsion paint can be easily applied, either by large rollers or smaller brushes as required. This means you can apply the paint in large quantities as required. You can also apply the paint in a much smaller and more controlled fashion. This means you can easily replace damaged or chipped paint.
