Choose a good quality roller that will provide better value in the long run because they,
Roller covers that are knitted are more prone to shedding. Fibres in woven covers are secured tightly and won’t pull out. Woven covers are preferred for working with oils that tend to have more ‘pull’. If you use knitted covers we recommend that you wash them first or de-lint with some masking tape to remove loose
|Cover Type||Ideal Use||Special Features||Quality|
|Latex emulsions (very low nap can be used for oils)||Lint free Excellent pick-up and coverage (3/8 loaded roller can cover 12m or nearly 40ft! Minimal splatter||Excellent|
|Very good for emulsions. Suitable for use with all paints, stains and primers||Very good pick-up Striped to indicate when to reload||Good|
|Emulsions or oils. Can use with all paints, stains and primers||Good pick-up Ideal for budget jobs or single use||Budget|
|Perma Simulated Mohair
|Oils, varnishes and urethanes||Achieves high quality fine finish (spray-on look) Excellent for wood floors||Excellent|
|100% Natural Merino
|All emulsions or oil-based paints||Very high quality handmade construction More fibres per square inch – up to 8 times more than synthetics Excellent pick-up||Excellent|

From Aluminum to Zinc and everything in between, this handy guide is a life-saver with specifications from our Vice President of Technical and Head of Innovation (who has been designing formulas specially for the Caribbean environment for 30 years) identifying the exact coating system you’ll need to guarantee success in coating virtually any surface
This guide details coating systems to effectively colour, coat and protect virtually any surface encountered in standard construction, renovation and maintenance environments. It provides an outline of the preparation required for successful coating and identifies recommended coating systems for a variety of substrates as well as how to effectively solve surface challenges.
Note: While every effort is made to detail accurate and effective systems, specific project conditions are unknown and can be highly variable. This guide is therefore limited and outlines generally applicable principles. It is not a specification.
While Harris/ B-H Paints do supply specialist High Performance Coatings (HPCs) these fall outside the scope of this guide. HPCs are a class of technically advanced protective coatings designed to give superior levels of impact, abrasion and corrosion protection designed for aggressive environments including high traffic areas and in commercial and industrial applications.
