What is Conventional Alkyd Paint?
Conventional alkyd paints dry by solvent evaporation and cure by oxidation in approximately five days to a hard, glossy finish that is simply unmatched by latex paints. This makes alkyds well-suited for interior trim, doors, cabinets and other high-use areas that require smooth durability. When you brush alkyd paint onto a handrail or kitchen cabinet, it can look like it was sprayed.
Conventional alkyds use petroleum-based solvents and have higher levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). They also involve a more difficult cleanup that requires paint thinner. There is a product that puts the best of both conventional alkyds and waterborne-alkyds in practice as the new gold standard for the pro painter.
