What is a court? What is it you want to know?

Vincent,

welcome.

Most here are painters with a few retailers who sell paints. I sincerely doubt there are regular contributors who know about the chemistry involved with making specific coatings. We have had a few chemists drop by once in awhile, and I hope those few will see your post and offer all they can

I wish I could offer you a good place to start researching how to make acrylic tennis court paint from all the raw materials you need. But I'll bet you will find that in the long run, it will be cheaper to buy it. AND the product you buy will have the benefit of being researched, developed, and tested to make sure it will stand up to the weather and heavy use a tennis court is exposed to.

Good luck.

well u have a point over there... but i'm a tennis court contractor i wish to get a low price to compete with others contractor. how wish i don need to import all the goods from oversea since the price for acrylic paint keep on increase each year and the client always look for cheaper price but not the branded material. this make more and more contractors cutting Conner. i hope i could get some 1 to teach me so could provide the best quality and the best price for my client and the best system for the people who use for the courts.

I think there might be a little more to it then pouring different percentages of XYZ into some buckets and away you go.

Have you thought about environmental restrictions on whatever concoction you might come up with.

What research have you done regarding exisiting manufacturers?

Now I'm a long way from being an expert in tennis court coatings, but they can't be THAT expensive that you feel the need to make your own to undercut the opposition can they???

i never think of the environmental restrictions... well is producing acrylic paint is bad for the environment?

so far i never done any research on the existing manufacturers, but i believe there are many country have producing acrylic paint so this mean producing acrylic paint is not that hard after all. i know my country got 1 local manufacturer producing the same acrylic paint but... his price is way to high. because he use to buy oversea acrylic paint so he could play around the price. he know there is only 1 player monopolize the market at my country.

i understand the acrylic doesnt increase much but for the currency exchange it do make many different and also include the custom declaration of goods, it will actually sum up a huge different on what i am buying.

There's many brain surgeons and rocket scientists out there too ..........

Seriously - do more research on other suppliers / manufacturers first

read this (I know it's to do with the US but it hilights a point) http://www.pcimag.com/articles/formu...th-coalescents and really does point out exactly how complex making paint really is!

Vincent,
Read the following book, http://store.elsevier.com/Water-Base...9780815513452/. Just be sure to wear the proper protection before you begin agitation.

I hope that translates properly. Good luck.
