A healthy 10w40 is one of the easiest, and most natural, ways to get rid of a heavy-duty paint job. I’ve lived in the city for over 10 years and have never been outside my home. I’ve never had to scrape or paint anything out. In fact, there are so many options on the Internet, I’m not even sure I can use them enough to keep up.
I have to agree with you about the 10w40. I actually like the 10w30 paint, but the 10w40 is much easier to get the paint on and it’s cheaper. I think the 10w30 is also a little more permanent and a little more durable, which gives you more control over color and surface.
Well, I can’t comment on the 10w40 being thicker than the 10w30. I’m sure there are some differences in the paint materials.
The 10w30 is definitely thicker than the 10w40. It’s a little thicker (maybe 1/8th?), but for me that doesn’t really matter. It’s still a thinner paint, but it’s also a more durable one. For me, it’s not like that means you have more control over a color, it’s just that the 10w50 and 10w60 are all basically the same.
the 10w50 being thicker is the most visible difference. It has a higher sheen to it, and the more durable paint can handle more of the wear and tear of the weather. If you care about color, you probably could care less if its thicker, but if you care about durability, thicker is better.
It’s not just for the color though, thicker paint is also more likely to absorb stains, and thicker paint will take up more paint and apply with less of a brush. Also, thicker paint is more likely to crack if the paint is on a high traffic area.
It seems like 10w40 is about half a pound less thick than 10w30. It is also the least expensive paint we’ve tested, and seems to be a little more durable. It’s a little more expensive, but the price tag is more of a marketing gimmick than an actual advantage. Also, 10w40 is more likely to crack in your home if you’re not careful.
This is a bit more complicated than 10w40, but the point is that 10w40 is about 1/10th the weight of 10w30. So if your home has about a pound of paint on it, it doesn’t really matter which size you paint it. If you’re using a piece of paint that’s a hundred times the weight of 10w30, you’re looking at a pound of paint less.
There are many painting formulas out there that are designed to be thinner, but 10w40 is designed to be thicker. In general, thinner paints are a lot more difficult to apply correctly, and thicker paints are less likely to crack. Also, thicker paints are more likely to crack or peel off when you try to paint over them, so it makes sense to go with a thicker paint if you can.
In terms of thicker paint being more difficult to apply and less likely to crack, thinner paint is probably more of the “go with what you have” approach.
