On the outside of the metal lacquer, a layer of varnish is usually added. protection.

Because water-based metallic paints are environmentally friendly, metal powders are unstable in water and air, and often undergo chemical reactions and metamorphosis. Therefore, their appearance needs special treatment, and the metal powder used in water-based paints is expensive and used. Restrictions, the current metal paints are mainly solvent-based, and depending on the paint-based resin, the solvent-based metal paints include acrylic metal paints, fluorocarbon metal paints, and the like.
