Exterior paint includes an array of coats for outdoor structures, not only for house siding, but also for wooden decking, concrete and masonry, iron and other metal railings and posts, and wood and non-galvanized furniture. The paint has to be tough, standing up to all types of climates and weather, including hot and dry conditions, humidity and rain, cold and wind, and any sudden fluctuations between weather extremes. Many manufacturers specialize in outdoor paints, including Rust-Oleum®, available at Staples®.

High-Quality Exterior Paints Include Oil-Based Coatings
The three basic types of paint for outdoor structures include acrylic latex, alkyd, and oil, each with different binders for ensuring the paint's surface adherence and coverage. Water-based acrylic latex is almost exclusively for application on house sidings. Alkyd and oil paints are ideal for siding, and other exterior structures as well. Oil-based paints use natural oils, primarily linseed, as the binder. Alkyd-based paints, also known as oil-based paints, use synthetic resins as binders. The binders preserve the essential appearance of the paint when dried, including its gloss and sheen, and give the paint its toughness and flexibility against the elements. Alkyd- and oil-based paints are resistant to wear and tear, and they leave a lustrous, thick, stain- and mildew-resistant finish.

Additives for Outdoor Paints in Hot and Dry Weather
Substrates exposed to intense sunlight and little moisture are difficult to paint. That's because they're so dry that they simply soak up the coating on contact. Products are available as additives to thin paint to improve its flow, and maintain the wet edge needed for clean, even coverage without a brush stroke appearance. Rust-Oleum's sister company, Zinsser®, manufactures an oil-based PaintBooster™ formula for alkyd and oil paints to improve paint flow, and extend wet-edge time by 10 to 15 minutes. The formula doesn't contain colorants or solvents, so its addition doesn't affect the color, sheen, or flexibility of the paint after it dries. One quart treats up to 15 gallons of paint, so the additive is a cost-saving way to extend paint coverage in hot and dry conditions.

What Paints Are Good for Outdoor Metals?
If not galvanized with a zinc coating, steel and iron rust and corrode when exposed to excess moisture over time. Even though aluminum doesn't rust, it's still susceptible to corrosion and pitting. To protect outdoor metal structures, including stair railings, cast-iron furniture, flagpoles, and mailbox posts, use alkyd enamel paints, which are among the best exterior paints available for direct metal applications. Rust-Oleum makes high-quality alkyd enamels that give metal surfaces a high-gloss finish and quick-drying coverage in just 2 to 4 hours. It provides not only long term rust and corrosion protection, but also resistance to chipping and weathering.

What Other Outdoor Paints Are There?
Another exterior paint application is marking natural or structural surfaces to indicate the location of underground utilities in preparation for yard work or excavation. Rust-Oleum makes a fluorescent orange exterior ID paint in precision-nozzle, line marking spray cans. It's resistant to fading in the elements, applicable on lawns or hard surfaces, is highly visible, and dries in less than 5 minutes.

Can Exterior Paints Be Used Indoors?
In general, indoor painting on walls and ceilings requires paint designated for interior use. However, there's no reason not to use outdoor alkyd enamels on indoor metal structures for superior gloss and protection, or oil-based paints on furniture, particularly rattan or cane, for adherence and protection. In addition, Rust-Oleum alkyd enamel paints are ideal for indoor applications in climate-severe workplaces.
