BASICLY , ROOF PAINT OR ANY OTHER PAINT IS JUST MADE FROM A BASIC SIMPLE MATERIALS .
THE MATERIALS ARE JUST : LATEX AND COLOR PIGMENTS .
THERE ARE 2 KINDS OF LATEX , THE WATER BASE LATEX AND OIL BASE LATEX . IF YOU USE THE OIL BASE LATEX THEN YOU MUST USE THINNER FOR THE SOLUTION , AND IF YOU USE THE WATER BASE LATEX THEN YOU MUST USE WATER FOR THE SOLUTION . ( REMEMBER THAT OIL NEVER CAN MIX WITH WATER ) .
SO , THE BASIC FORMULA TO MAKE YOUR OWN PAINT ARE :
FOR WATER BASE : USE THE WATER BASE LATEX , MIX WITH COLOR PIGMENTS . THEN MIX THEM WITH WATER TO PAINT THE ROOF TILES .
FOR OIL BASE : USE THE OIL BASE LATEX , MIX WITH COLOR PIGMENTS . THEN MIX THEM WITH THINNER GRADE A , TO PAINT THE ROOF TILES .
MAKING THE COLOR : IS JUST THE MATTER OF MIXING THE COLOR PIGMENTS , FOR EXAMPLE TO MAKE MAROON IS USING THE RED PIGMENT MIXED WITH BLUE PIGMENT IN THE CORRECT PERCENTAGES .
THEN , SOME PAINT FACTORIES ALSO PUT IN SOME CHEMICAL MATERIALS , FOR EXAMPLE : THE ANTI BACTERIA , ANTI UV , ETC . BUT WE DONT NEED ALL OF THEM . WE JUST WANT TO MAKE THE PAINT , AS CHEAPER AS WE CAN , WITH SIMILIAR QUALITY .
BUT , BETWEEN THE OIL BASE AND WATER BASE , THERE IS A GREAT SOLUTION TO USE THE NATROSOL , SO YOU CAN USE THE WATER BASE PAINT , MIX WITH NATROSOL , SO THE PAINT WILL LOOK SIMILIAR TO THE OIL BASE PAINT . THIS IS A SECRET WAY TO PAINT THE ROOF TILES WITH CHEAPER COST .
THERE ARE MANY BRAND OF LATEX , ALSO MANY BRAND OF COLOR PIGMENTS , AND ASLO MANY BRAND OF NATROSOL . FOR EXAMPLE : BAYER COLOR , HOLLAND COLOR , ETC .
UNFORTUNETLY , TO PROTECT OUR ROOF MACHINES CUSTOMERS , I CANNOT DESCRIBE THE FORMULA OF THE PAINT . SO YOU HAVE TO MAKE EXPERIMENTS BY YOURSELF USING THE MATERIALS THAT ALREADY EXPLAINED ABOVE .
BUT IF YOU ARE ONE OF OUR CUSTOMERS , THEN YOU CAN EMAIL TO ME ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) TO GET THE FORMULA SEND TO YOUR EMAIL .
YOU WILL ALSO NEED A PAINT MIXER TO HELP YOUR WORK TO MAKE THE PAINT , LIKE THE MIXER BELOW :
PAINTING ROOF TILES , WITH 2 LAYERS . FIRST LAYER IS USING WATER BASE PAINT ( BECAUSE IT IS CHEAPER ) , THEN THE SECOND LAYER IS USING THE OIL BASE PAINT .
AND WE PAINT THE TILES USING SPRAY GUN , POWERED BY AIR COMPRESSOR UNIT .
First , you have to arange the roof tiles to some separate stacks like this :
Then , you can use the spray gun , to paint the first roof tile on the first stack , using the water base paint with similiar color to the oil base paint ( First layer is using water base paint ) :
Then continue to the other tiles on the other stacks :
Do the same , untill the last tile on the last stack :
Now , the first roof tile with water base paint , is already dry enough for second layer , so change your spray gun to Oil Base Paint , and start spraying the first tile on the first stack again , but this time you use the Oil base paint for the second layer :
Continue to spray the rest tiles with the Oil base paint untill the last tile :
When already spray the last tile , the same worker or another worker ready to take out the roof tiles which already be painted with second layer , move them to the color stocks area :
Then the worker can continue the steps above to finish all the painting job . Normally , 2 workers can paint 1000 pcs of roof tile per day ( 7 hours working time ) .
THE PAINT RESULT WILL BE MORE SHINY IF YOU PAINT THEM UNDER THE SUN LIGHT .
ANOTHER WAY TO PAINT THE ROOF , IS PAINT THEM WHILE ALREADY ASSEMBLIED ON THE ROOF TOP ( ON THE HOUSE ) .
Here I took some photos for Mr.Pradish ( India ) , explaining the roof models he want to see .
I took the photos today at my office , and below is the photos of the roof samples collection in my front office . Most of the samples are from the results we were testing our concrete roof machines and molds . I am collecting those roof samples from 1990 and still have more models in our waresouse .
Below are only some models I put at my front office :
And I asked one of my worker to help me in making Photos of Roof tiles models that Mr.Pradish want to see , as he prepared the roof and I was operating my camera :
Now , we were ready to take the photos , and here are the result with explanation of each models , as Mr.Pradish asked me .
THE MOST FAMOUS MODEL IN INDONESIA TODAY IS THE FLAT MODEL . AND THERE ARE 3 KIND OF SURFACE TEXTURE WHICH ARE MOST FAMOUS :
THEN , IN MID OF 2011 , A NEW DESIGN OF FLAT ROOF COME UP , THIS NEW DESIGN IS BECOMING POPULAR NOW , BECAUSE IT ALSO REDUCE THE LATHS USE .
AND BELOW ARE THE OTHER ROOF MODELS WHICH MR.PRADISH WANT TO SEE :
