I would like to initiate a general discussion of the contribution various paint ingredients make to the DIY Screen Paint mixes. I welcome any thorough description of the ingredients and the contribution they make to the performance of the mix as a DIY Screen Paint. If the creators of the mix are unwilling to disclose this information then lets get as much data as we can on the ingredients and reverse engineer it.

In the end we should end up with a better understanding of the ingredients and if we chose to engage in some experimenting on our own, at least we won't be just guessing what and how much to start with.

Here are a couple of links to reference material that may help:
http://www.currys.com/knowledge/gold_sp_tech.html
http://www.liquitex.com/Products/paintinterference.cfm


Here are a few paint ingredients and questions we might explore:

- Opaque flat paints. Why opaque? Why flat?

- Why does a flat opaque grey paint make blacks look better?

- Why does introducing some sheen to the surface of an opaque paint increase the on axis gain.

- If you want an opaque paint to have some sheen why not simply try an eggshell or satin finish paint?

- Can someone provide a detailed description of the Delta metallic and pearl paints.

- What does it mean when Delta indicates that Cardinal Red and ultra Blue are transparent ? When I look in the bottle I can see some sort of particles in a clear liquid. I would have expected to see a clear liquid that was red or blue.

- Do the Delta metallic paints introduce any interference effects.

- How thick is the average rolled on paint layer?

- How thick is the average sprayed on paint layer?

- What is the range of wave length of visible colors?

- If some surfaces absorb light energy, what does it become?

- Description of Daniel Smith Interference Silver and how it works?

- What is Pearl Ex Silver Powder and what does it contribute to a translucent mix?

- Controlled surface texture, good or bad?

- Frosted surfaces? Duster coats?

The Delta Silver Metallic and pearl are said to be transparent paints. Does that mean they do not have pigment in them?

Can anyone confirm if the Delta transparent paints have mica platlets in them?

I've tried to get some answers directly from Delta but they keep passing to customer service and they never answer the phone. Has anyone been able to get some data on the Delta Ceramcoat paints?

Could you also include the nonsprayed methods as well?

I don't understand the question or who you are intending it for. :confused:
