With as many paint manufacturing companies out there as there are colors, choosing the correct interior paint or exterior paint can be a daunting task. Niche paints, such as epoxy paints, for metal and even marine applications; acrylic spray paint, used for quick and easy applications; and powder coating, used for coating appliances and vehicle parts, only add to the extensive selection available for both commercial and residential customers.
Today"s paint companies have a paint for everything. Interior paints and wall paints have evolved to the point where many paint manufacturers offer primers that change color when they have dried, and color coatings that apply evenly to give a professional quality to the job. Exterior paints, generally the acrylic latex variety, can now resist peeling, dirt, and other maladies for years. Professionals can use industrial paints on just about any surface where protection against chemical and corrosive elements is desired.
