These distinct quality paints have further classifications which take us into a blurred world. To avoid such situations and understand things from the base, we have in this article elaborated the basic meaning of Distemper paint and a Tractor Emulsion. Both have their own merits and demerits of application.

We have tried to cover almost everything from our expertise and client’s responses over the years.  Let us have a brief understanding of both of them and study the difference:

Distemper Paint

Distemper is one of the oldest types of paint which is made up of a combination of inappropriate qualities of chalk, lime, water and pigment. In addition, it is bounded with animal glue or the adhesive qualities of materials. These materials include casein and resin which is a product form from the solidification of milk. Commonly, Distemper paint is often referred to as cement paint in the market. This is due to its unique quality. Distemper paint can be directly applied on cement walls without going through the process of coating any material or primer on the wall. Even the application of primer is not required if you choose to paint walls with Distemper.

Distemper is a common man’s choice as it is cheap to buy and stays perfectly on the walls for more than 2-3 years. Moreover, painters around you need two coatings to apply the Distemper and hence the usage is also less. They can fit perfectly in the interiors as well as exterior walls.
