Pigment for Plaster FAQs

Plaster pigment is a color additive for plaster products. There are many types of plaster pigments, including organic pigments, inorganic pigments and so on.

  1. Organic pigments

Organic pigments are suitable for painting and dyeing of plaster. They are synthetic yellow pigments, with good light resistance, heat resistance and stability. They are not easily affected by light, heat, oxidation and other factors, so they are relatively durable.

Key points for the use of organic pigments:

  • Natural color.
  • Easy dispersion, without blocking.

③ Small particles on plaster, conducive to coloring.

  1. Inorganic pigments

Inorganic pigments are used for coloring plaster products, including iron oxide, titanium dioxide, calcium carbonate, etc.

Iron oxide is one of the most commonly used plaster pigments, with excellent durability and usability. Titanium dioxide is often used in white, gray and light-colored plaster, with a small amount of iron oxide as the supplement. Calcium carbonate is a grey pigment for grey plaster.

  1. Uniform and delicate color: plaster pigments with uniform and delicate color have better coloring effects.
  2. High stability: plaster pigments with high stability are not prone to fading or delamination in long-term use.

  4. 4. Good compatibility with plaster: plaster pigments must be fully compatible with plaster. They are used for plaster dyeing, without affecting the properties of plaster.

  2. Penetration coloring: pigments are diluted and applied on the surfaces of plaster products. Pigments will penetrate into plaster. This method is for uniform coloring, without affecting the original appearance. However, it takes a long time to penetrate into plaster.
  3. Overlay coloring: one layer of pigment is applied and dried first, and then the second layer is applied. This method applies to various colors for better effects. But it is complicated due to multiple processes.

III. Precautions

  1. Before coloring, make sure that the surfaces of plaster products are clean, in order to avoid uneven coloring.
  2. Pay attention to the concentration of pigment and intensity of brushing in the coloring process, to avoid pigment spillage and brush marks.
  3. 3. Pay attention to the time and frequency of penetration coloring, to achieve ideal color effects.
  4. 4. Different skills and pigment quantities are required in different coloring methods. They should be chosen as needed.

In short, we should be careful to ensure the aesthetic feeling of plaster products. By taking the correct coloring methods and precautions, we can make plaster products with higher artistic value in our life.
