Plan my approach. Check! Search for color inspirations. Check! Choose the right paint for my painting project. In the works…

There’s a specific type of paint for a certain kind of surface. That’s what you always have to keep in mind before you buy any Boysen product. If you’ve been to a hardware store, you’d notice that the salesperson would ask questions about where you’ll use the paint before they recommend a product. Are you painting your outside walls or your kitchen walls? Does your floor or your roof need a fresh coat of paint? Maybe, you’re refurbishing a wooden chair—that needs a specific type of paint too.

No matter what painting project you’re working on, we will help you find the right Boysen products that are suitable for your painting needs. Here, we made an infographic of the different types of surfaces and the Boysen topcoats you can use.

Boysen Topcoat for Concrete Surfaces

Boysen offers many topcoat options for concrete surfaces. You can narrow down your choices by knowing what you want for your space.

If you want extra protection for your home, you can pick Boysen Healthy Home, an antibacterial paint that helps fight bacteria like E. coli and Salmonella and prevents the growth of fungi and mildew on painted surfaces. If you want to create a home where the walls act as an insect killer, then you can apply Boysen BUG OFF all over your walls. If you want an elegant matte finish, we have Virtuoso Silk Touch for your interior walls.

If you own a building (or a skyscraper) and you want to help clean the air, then you can try Boysen KNOxOUT, an air-cleaning paint for your outside walls. If you want a time-tested and durable paint,  you can’t go wrong with Boysen Permacoat and Boysen Acrytex. The choice depends on your priorities.

Those paints are just for walls! We have topcoats for concrete floors too. Getting Boysen Acqua Epoxy is a smart choice if you’re giving your home a major floor makeover, including the garage. If you’re looking for its solvent-based counterpart, Boysen Epoxy Enamel can be your option but this paint can only be used on interior concrete surfaces.

Boysen Topcoat for Drywall Surfaces

Remember that different types of drywall surfaces have a specific paint requirement. We urge you to consult with the manufacturer of the drywall first before buying any paint products.

For drywall surfaces like gypsum boards or fiber cement boards, you can use water-based paints like Boysen Permacoat, Boysen Permatex, Boysen Healthy Home, Virtuoso Silk Touch, Boysen BUG OFF, Boysen DECORe Classic, and Boysen DECORe Perlescente.

 Boysen Topcoat for Wooden Surfaces

When choosing paints for wooden surfaces, you have to consider the place where you’re going to apply it and the final look that you’re going for.

If you want to highlight the wood’s natural tones and grains, then you should pick Boysen Lacquer products and Boysen Spar Varnish B-58. These paint products have a clear transparent film that will let the natural beauty of wood shine. Read more about Boysen Wood Varnishes to learn how to use it on interior wooden surfaces.

Boysen Automotive Lacquer is a practical choice for your kitchen cabinets and shelves. It’s a lacquer-type paint that is used to achieve the Duco finish or the high gloss and long-wearing finish. This finish is loved by many for its durability and easy-clean feature.

If you want color and protection for your wooden furniture, cabinets, and doors, enamel-based paints can be your option. Here’s our DIY-friendly recommendation:

You can still use water-based topcoats like Boysen Permacoat, Boysen BUG OFF, Boysen Healthy Home, and Virtuoso Silk Touch for wood provided that you use Boysen WoodPrime, a water-based primer for interior surfaces. However, you can only use this on trims and moldings. Our paint experts recommend that you avoid using Boysen WoodPrime in high-friction areas or high-touch surfaces. These include fixtures (kitchen cabinets, cupboards, shelves, and built-in wardrobes), furniture, and floors.

Don’t forget about your floors! If you’re painting parquets or wooden flooring, you can rely on Hudson Timbercoat and Hudson Polyurethane Floor Varnish Sealer and Topcoat.
