The right tool for the job, is always the best!
There are many types of paints out there. Latex, enamels, lacquers, acrylics, epoxy, polyurethane, shellac, tar base, oil base, high solid - high viscosity, solvent and many others.
There are a lot of paint finishes that can be achieved with the paints available on the market now. Commonly the choices on the market for painting tools have been very limited when selling common economic or deluxe paint rollers, and the general purpose paint brush applicators.
HI-TECH Paint Roller™ have been slowly introducing innovations to help local paint contractors & DIY'ers achieve the potential of the paint that there is in the markets today.
The right way to choose a paint applicator is not to ask which is the best paint roller or paint brush, but rather which is the best tool to help you achieve your desired result.
Gloss, flat, rough surface, long lasting, very adhesive paint. This are just some of the many results that home-owners or contractors want to achieve.
Let us help you make that decision by pointing to you our list of products and what it's best for.
Below is a general introduction, which is followed by a more specific and detailed list of our products.
FACTORS AFFECTING FINISH
Smooth & Rough/Gloss & Flat
-Generally speaking, the longer the pile height the coarser is the finish and the shorter the pile the finer is the finish. (Velour's for large area, foam for small area) ( High Pile Polyester for Coarse wall )
-The finer the material to be painted the more adhesive the paint becomes. To adhere to the fine material. The more adhesive the paint,the more tougher the paint roller material should be. Up to lint free status. (Good to best = Polyester, Acrylic, Polyamide, Nylon, Sheep Skin) ( Velour's & Microfiber is on another category)
Speed, Speed, Speed - Paint Pick Up / Longer Lasting Performance
- Now we also should consider speed and durability,specially when we are painting larger areas, so paint exchange should be good. This is where Microfiber comes in number one followed by Polyamide, Acrylic then Polyester.
