In addition, rollers are used for priming the surface.
Fur roller. Such a roller should not be used for painting surfaces with lime compositions, because the fur can be spoiled and it will significantly worsen the quality of painting. Before you start painting, the roller should be prepared by immersing it in water for a while.
Foam roller. The roller is made of foam rubber with a hole drilled into it. A hollow tube is placed in the hole, which, in turn, is put on the axis of the machine and secured with a nut and washer.
There are special varieties of rollers, used for painting stairwells, balcony posts and other structures. This tool has two machines and is shaped like scissors with rollers instead of blades.

Depending on the operation changes the purpose of construction and painting and plastering tools, and even their size. Among the distinctive features of tools for painting work can be called the mandatory presence of the contact surface, with which the work is carried out. And you should also pay attention to the fact that in addition to basic devices, there are auxiliary.

- Metal brushes. They are used for deburring the surfaces, which can be exposed to hard abrasives. For example, when painting metal or removing old coatings from concrete. Rust is eliminated exactly with the help of brushes with metal bristles.
- Solution cuvettes. They are used for mixing plasters, tinting paint by hand. The capacity of the fixture depends on its purpose and type of work.
- Wallpaper brushes. They are designed to remove folds and bloated areas: air bubbles. It is important to consider that the tool should have a comfortable handle for fixation in the palm, otherwise it will be uncomfortable to work with it for a long time.
Each type of painter’s accessory has basic features. The first thing you need to pay attention to is the geometry and shape. It is quite diverse in brushes, which can be:
And also separately it is accepted to consider the features of bristles. It can be artificial: universal, but restricted to contact with particularly caustic solvents. Such brushes are especially handy when working with lacquers.
Universal brushes combine sections with different types of hair, they retain paint materials with different densities of fractions, they are not subject to shedding.
Natural bristles are more flexible and soft, they are convenient to work with olive oil, oil and alkyd based paints.
Rollers also have some differences. There are collapsible or reusable models, in which there is a movable interchangeable part, and monolithic structures (disposable). Among pile variants, the most popular solutions are the following.
- Polyamide based. Considered universal, they have high absorbency.
- Polyacrylic-based. May dissolve or react with binding agents of paints and coatings.
- Made of polyester with a characteristic fibrous structure. Have low wear resistance.
- Made of foam. Only suitable for work with water-based materials: oil and alkyd compounds corrode the material.
- Made of natural fur. They are practical, universal, resistant to wear and tear.
- Made of velour. They are used for finishing works, have a short nap and homogeneous surface structure.
It also matters the length of the pile. The more embossed the coating will be, the more difficult it is to paint it. Accordingly, the short velour models are only suitable for smooth walls and ceilings without relief.
