COLOUR CODING SYSTEM

Whether you work with a brush or roller, first of all there is always the question of choosing the right paint - waterthinnable varnishes and glazes, dispersion and wall paint or solvent-containing varnishes and glazes (please note the information/instructions for use on the paint tubs).

This is due to the different consistencies of the following two groups of paint:

  • Waterthinnable varnishes and glazes, as well as dispersion and wall paint are generally of rather low viscosity
  • Solvent-containing varnishes and glazes are generally rather viscous

 

ROUGH DIVISION OF PAINTBRUSHES AND SURFACE BRUSHES INTO CATEGORIES

 
Blue label: For waterthinnable varnishes and glazes, as well as dispersion and wall paint
We primarily use synthetic bristles or special blends. Particularly for dispersion and wall paint, specially prepared dun (white) or black natural bristles can also be used; however, they require greater care.
 
Red label: For solvent-containing varnishes and glazes
We primarily use high-quality, strong black or dun (white) natural bristles.
 
Yellow label: Special paintbrushes for various fields of application
Here the field of main application is usually evident from the product name, such as lyes brush, glue brush, soldering fluid brush, watercolour brush, etc.
