    Estimate the galloon of paint base on the surface area given: A storage has an area of 100 sq. ft. , with a width dimension and wall height in 10 ft. All walls are in same height. Windows has 90 sq. ft opening but to be filled. Door has a standard  opening dimension. Calculate how many quarts of gallon needed for 2 coatings? note: 1 gallon = 300 sq. ft

    • A.

      12

    • B.

      5

    • C.

      7

    • D.

      10

    Correct Answer
    D. 10
    Explanation
    The total surface area of the walls can be calculated by multiplying the width dimension by the wall height, which is 10 ft in this case. So, the total surface area of the walls is 100 sq. ft. The windows have a total opening area of 90 sq. ft, but they need to be filled, so we can subtract this from the total surface area of the walls. The remaining surface area that needs to be painted is 100 sq. ft - 90 sq. ft = 10 sq. ft. Since 1 gallon of paint can cover 300 sq. ft, we divide the remaining surface area by 300 to find out how many gallons are needed. 10 sq. ft / 300 sq. ft = 0.033 gallons. Since we need 2 coatings, we multiply this by 2 to get the final answer of 0.066 gallons.

    Why is glossy paint not use as a primer?

    • A.

      It will cover more paint to use

    • B.

      It will cover less paint to use

    • C.

      Improper adhesion property

    • D.

    • B.

      Peeling

    • C.

      Chalking

    • D.

      Blistering

    Correct Answer
    C. Chalking
    Explanation
    Chalking refers to the formation of white powders on the surface of paint. This occurs when the binder in the paint starts to degrade due to exposure to weather conditions, such as sunlight and moisture. As a result, the paint loses its adhesion and breaks down into a powdery residue. This can be commonly seen on exterior surfaces that have been painted, such as walls or fences. Efflorescence, on the other hand, refers to the formation of white powders caused by the migration of salts through porous materials, while peeling and blistering are related to the detachment of paint from the surface.

    Rate this question:

    Paint conditions where there are formation crusty white salt on the surface?

    • A.

      Efflorescence

    • B.

      Peeling

    • C.

      Chalking

    • D.

      Efflorescence

    Correct Answer
    A. Efflorescence
    Explanation
    Efflorescence refers to the formation of a crusty white salt deposit on the surface of paint. This occurs when water-soluble salts within the substrate migrate to the surface and react with air, leaving behind a white residue. It is a common issue in areas with high humidity or moisture, such as basements or bathrooms. Peeling and chalking, on the other hand, refer to the deterioration of paint film and do not specifically indicate the presence of white salt deposits. Therefore, the correct answer for this question is efflorescence.

    • D.

      Chalking

    Correct Answer
    B. Blistering
    Explanation
    Blistering occurs when paint is applied to a dirty or incompatible finish surface. The presence of dirt or incompatible substances on the surface prevents the paint from adhering properly, leading to the formation of blisters or bubbles. This can also happen if the surface is too hot or humid when the paint is applied. Blistering can result in a poor aesthetic appearance and can also lead to further paint failure if not addressed.

    A very common paint problem cause either by moisture or poor adhesion?

    • A.

      Peeling

    • B.

      Blistering

    • C.

      Wrinkling

    • D.

      Chalking

    Correct Answer
    A. Peeling
    Explanation
    Peeling is a very common paint problem that can be caused by either moisture or poor adhesion. When moisture gets trapped beneath the paint surface, it can cause the paint to lose its bond with the underlying surface and start to peel. On the other hand, poor adhesion occurs when the paint fails to properly stick to the surface due to factors like inadequate surface preparation or incompatible paint layers. In both cases, the result is peeling of the paint, which is why it is the correct answer.

    Correct Answer
    A. Brush them with steel brush and use them since a little rust is good for adhesion
    Explanation
    Brushing the steel bars with a steel brush and using them is the correct answer because a little rust can actually improve adhesion. Rust creates a rough surface that helps paint or other coatings adhere better to the steel. Therefore, instead of removing the rust completely, brushing it with a steel brush will remove loose rust and create a rough surface for better adhesion while still maintaining the beneficial effects of a little rust.

    PAINT PROBLEMS: Surface Defects A white fluffy surface deposit that is caused by salts in the plaster being drawn to the surface.

    • A.

      Efflorescence

    • B.

      Chalking

    • C.

      Cissing

    • D.

      Alligatoring

    Correct Answer
    A. Efflorescence
    Explanation
    Efflorescence is a white fluffy surface deposit that occurs when salts in the plaster are drawn to the surface. This can happen due to moisture or water penetration, causing the salts to dissolve and migrate to the surface as the water evaporates. It is a common problem in masonry and can be visually unappealing. Chalking, cissing, and alligatoring are different surface defects that are not related to the formation of efflorescence.
