Why use glass paint on exterior projects?
One of the first concerns about choosing a paint for outdoor use is its UV resistance. Glassprimer™ glass paint has that covered! Everyone likes sunlight, but it’s very harsh! Colors tend to fade quickly. The fading is one of the first signs of aging. Yellowing is also a sign of failure, and as you probably have observed, it doesn’t take long for a surface to yellow in the sun. Glassprimer™ is specially formulated to resist the impact of UV light, and will stand up to sunlight for years. It will also perform in temperatures up to 350° F! It’s tougher than ordinary, polymer-based exterior paint, so it’s a natural choice for exterior surfaces.
But what if you don’t intend to paint glass? Glass paint can protect a variety of surfaces other than glass. It’s designed especially for glass, but you can apply it to glass, plastic, metal, stone, masonry and other common exterior surfaces and get the same great results. Its nano-bonding properties mean that you can get great, long-lasting coverage on a range of porous and non-porous surfaces.
Glassprimer™ glass paint is a low-VOC paint, so its easier to work with and more environmentally friendly than other kinds of exterior paints. Glassprimer™ glass paint cleans up with acetone, which is readily available in home improvement and hardware stores. Additionally, we produce a water-based version of Glassprimer™ glass paint that offers the same great nano-bonding technology, high UV resistance and low VOC content as our solvent-based paint, but cleans up with water.
