I bought some cheap white paint that does not cover itself well at well let alone other colors. I was going to take it back but I have been told that I did right and I just need to treat the stuff. I should treat high priced paint the same way my advisor said.
I have been advised of two ways to do this:
-Adding cemento blanco and cal (white cement and lime) will make the paint more durable, cover well, and probably solve my salitre problem(peeling paint because of dampness and saltpeter in the walls made of brick and cement). Does anyone know if this will work? Anyone know of the ratios needed for this to work?
-A less expensive solution I was told was to add Siamil and P50 (sellador vinilio). This is supposed to be a better solution. I do not know what is does for the salitre problem. Does anyone know if this will work in any way? I was told 1 or 2 kilos of siamil and 1½ P50 to a 5 gallon bucket of paint, does this sound right?
Any help would be appreciated.
