Despite our constant efforts to offer mouldings in different styles, formats and finishes, it is natural that, depending on the project scenario, it is necessary to customize them (paint them) to suit the desired concept for the environment. In this case, it is necessary to pay attention and be cautious to purchase the correct product to paint the skirting boards, architraves or other mouldings from Santa Luzia. Extra caution will ensure that you don't waste new features to replace them, thus saving time and money.
First step to paint mouldings from Santa Luzia:
Check if the ambient demands that the mouldings are painted before purchasing them. Some Lines and Collections from Santa Luzia arrive on the market with special finishes, eliminating the need for painting. Check the options to see if they fit your project. They are the following:
It is important to do this previous check before purchasing because if, for example, you buy the wall baseboard from the Metallic Collection and then want to paint it in another colour, you unfortunately will not be able to do so.
Choose the wall baseboard or another moulding from the collections and lines that can be customized (painted), such as:
These mouldings have, since March/2016, been sold painted white from factory, meaning they are ready to install. However, to customize them with other shades of white, we suggest using water-based enamel paint. With a very fine sandpaper (600 to 900), sand the mouldings only to matte the gloss of the product, without damaging the original factory paint. However, if the painting is with colored paint, solvent-based enamel paint can be used. In this case there will be no need to use sandpaper before painting.
Identifying products painted from factory
As mentioned above, since March 2016, Santa Luzia has been offering factory-painted mouldings that can be customized. Products prior to this date are pre-finished, that is, they need final painting. Given the possibility that there are still products from this period in resellers across the country, we explain below how to identify whether the product is painted from factory or not:
