Acrylic spray paints coatings can be used on a wide variety of surfaces, including wood, metal, plastic and fabric. They dry relatively quickly, are easy to clean and are suitable for artwork, furniture and architectural painting.

2. Oil-Based Paints (OBP)

Oil-Based Paints are a traditional spray paint coating, usually based on oil-based resins. They provide a strong, durable coating for metal, wood and concrete surfaces. Oil paints have a long drying time and usually require solvents to clean equipment. They are commonly used for outdoor painting, such as house exteriors and railings.

3. Latex Paints (Latex Paints)

Latex paints are water-based spray paint coatings that are rubber or latex based. They are a common choice for interior painting because they are odorless, non-toxic, dry quickly and are easy to clean. Latex paints are suitable for walls, ceilings, furniture and upholstery. They provide a smooth, even coating and often require multiple coats to obtain the desired coverage.

5. Primers

A primer is a spray paint coating used for paint preparation, usually applied to a surface to provide adhesion, sealing and protection. Primers reduce the penetration of paint into the substrate and increase the durability of the coating. There are various types of primers, such as metal primers, wood primers and concrete primers, which can be selected according to the desired effect.

6. Finishing Paints (Enamel Paints)

Enamel paints are high-gloss coatings that are commonly used to decorate and protect metal, wood and plastic surfaces. These paints provide a smooth, even coating that is resistant to abrasion and corrosion. Finish paints are used on automobiles, furniture, home furnishings, and metal windows and doors.

7. Baking Paints

Baking paints are spray paints that need to be cured by baking at high temperatures. These paints are commonly used in automotive and industrial applications because they provide a strong, durable coating. Characteristics of baked-on paints include high temperature resistance and chemical resistance, making them suitable for highly demanding environments.

8. Fire-Retardant Paints (FRPs)

Fire-Retardant Paints are a special type of coating designed to slow the spread of fire. They are commonly used in buildings, boats and other applications where fire codes need to be met. Fire-retardant paints release chemicals when exposed to heat, creating a protective coating that prevents the spread of fire.

9. Specialty Paints

Specialty paints include various types of spray paints such as fluorescent paints, magnetic paints, magnetic particle paints and fluorescent paints. These coatings provide a variety of visual and functional effects that can be used to create unique designs and applications.


Different types of spray paint coatings are suitable for different applications, and it is important to choose the right one depending on the desired effect, durability and environmental requirements. Understanding these common classifications of spray paint coatings will help you make informed decisions during your painting project. Whether you're doing home improvement, artistry or industrial manufacturing, choosing the right paint will ensure a great finish.
