How To Pick Out A Paint Color For You

A well chosen paint colors help to accentuate the most impressive features of your house and also to hide flaws in the design which may increase its appeal and market value . Many people find the task of choosing the best paint colors for their home very daunting. If you belong to this group here are some tips that could help to make your task easier:

1. Take into account the mood you want to create in the room you are painting. If you want a cool and relaxed atmosphere go for colors such as blue, green or yellow. For a sophisticated and exciting look use dramatic colors such as red or orange. Purple gives the room a romantic mood.
2. Borrow ideas from your neighbors. When choosing a color for your exteriors it is important to take into consideration the color of your neighbors' houses. You can go for uniformity or uniqueness. If you choose to make your house conspicuous ensure it doesn't clash with those of neighbors but it is also important to ensure that it is not an exact copy of a neighbor's paintwork.
3. When painting a room factor in the age of the occupant of that room. For a little child's nursery, bright and vivid colors are the norm but it is also important to take into consideration the temperament of your child. For a hyperactive child earthly colors can help to get them relaxed and calm.
4. Use light colors to produce an illusion of size. Painting a house with light colors on the outside makes it look larger. They also have the same effect on rooms whose walls are painted with light colors on the inside. If you want to give a room a feel of intimacy and compactness it is best to go for dark colors for the walls of these rooms.
5. Consider the various items that won't be painted such as bricks, wooden doors and pieces of furniture. You can choose to center the theme of your paintwork around one of these objects for example a piece of furniture such as a table.
6. Try to balance colors over the whole building. If you choose to use more than one color for your building, using one color on one part of the house may give it an uneven look.
7. Bring home paint samples and try out different colors and determine which one pleases you the most. Many paint store give or sell paint samples in small containers which you can take home and try out on the walls you intend to paint.
8. If you intend to restore the original paint of an old home for sentimental reasons it is best to get the services of an expert to analyze old chips of paint in order to get various aspects of the original color accurately.
9. Factor in nature. If for example the landscape around your house is defined by a lot of trees and other green vegetation, it calls for earthly colors such as green or brown.
10. Check out house magazines and look at combinations of color that you like and which include certain aspects of your house such as wood type and roof color among others.…...

...Bottom paints and bottom paints for boats Bottom paint is a covering applied to the lowermost point of a ship (hull) so as to get rid of growing organisms that may attach to the boat especially at the lower parts or to protect the metallic parts of the hull from corrosion. This is done to enhance the vessel's performance and sturdiness. Another added advantage is the improved contact between a free flow mass of water and the hull of a speedy boat enabling the boat to sail at a much faster speed. Modern bottom paints are composed of biocides (chemical substance that hamper growth of marine organisms), organotin compounds and lethal copper. Types of bottom paints SPC (Self polishing copolymers). It contains a resin known as SPC Copolymer. The chemical substance reacts with salt water and the result is the discharge of biocides in the entire life span of the bottom paint. The reaction takes place at any circumstance provided the vessel is in contact with salt water. Controlled Solubility Copolymers These types of bottom paints are partly soluble in water meaning it wears down when water passes across the exterior of the paint. The thickness of the paint reduces at a controlled pace resulting in the release of fresh biocide at the surface of the paint during its active working period. Ablative bottom paints A type of bottom paint that wears away with time when in use hence reducing the preparation and preservation needed when applying more bottom......

Clarke Paints Inc Proposal

...Clark Paints, Inc. Proposal Recommendation Clark Paints production department is looking to ways to lower total production costs. I have completed an analysis to determine if the company manufactured paint cans internally instead of purchasing them would reduce the production costs. As part of my analysis I have computed the Cash flows over the life of the project, Payback Period, Annual Rate of Return, Net Present Value and the Internal Rate of Return to use as the basis of my recommendation. I recommend that Clark Paints Inc. should accept the proposal to manufacture the paint cans in lieu of their current practice of purchasing the paint cans. If the company continues to purchase the paint cans it will cost $495,000 annually, while manufacturing the same amount of paint cans would only cost $422,460 annually. Manufacturing the cans provides an annual after tax cash flow of $58,351 and this project exceeds the company’s minimum rate of return (also known as the hurdle rate) of 12%. Based on my analysis the estimated annual rate of return to manufacture the cans would be 13.18% with an overall internal rate of return of 26.9%. The initial investment of $200,000 in machinery and training would be fully recovered in 3.43 years and yield a net present value of $178,504. The net present value represents the difference between the present value of cash inflows and the present value of the cash outflows and takes into consideration the time value of money.

Aluminum Paint

...Experts recommended grounding the tanks because it would protect them from lightning strikes and static electricity (Meyer, 2010). In addition, experts also recommended storing only noncombustible materials in tanks that were painted with products that contained aluminum powder because aluminum powder is a pyrophoric material (Meyer, 2010). Naturally the hazardous condition would be virtually eliminated by only storing noncombustible materials in the tanks. According to Meyer (2010) once the solvent in the coating has evaporated what remains of the paint should be considered a flammable and in the case of aluminum dust remnants, pyrophoric as stated above. Using paint consisting of aluminum already creates a risk of fire and explosion. Add to that an ignition source and a tank full of combustibles, and one could see to what extent that would add to an already hazardous situation (Meyer, 2010). Titanium much like other metal such as aluminum is not hazardous in bulk form. However, as in the case of aluminum, it becomes a pyrophoric material in its finely divided form. Through the fabrication process of metals, remnants of leftover titanium are considered pyrophoric and pose a significant risk of fire and explosion (Meyer, 2010). During the production process titanium remnants have the potential to react with atmospheric moister and cause the hydrogen to combust and can self-ignite (Meyer, 2010). The Use of automatic sprinkler systems can be an effective fire......
