Beside this, what is the difference between acrylic and latex primer?
There actually is no difference between latex and acrylic paints because there is no latex in latex paints. Latex has become a generic label. The stain, water resistance and covering capabilities are achieved by using acrylic resins or vinyl . Better quality paints have more acrylic resins than vinyl.
Secondly, what is a latex paint? Latex is a term applied to water-based acrylic, latex, or vinyl styrene paints. Binders in these sorts of paints cause them to appear milky before applications to surfaces, but they dry clear. Latex paint can also be referred to as acrylic paint, according to Wikipedia. They are sometimes interchangeable.
Furthermore, is oil based primer better than latex?
Oil-Based. Oil-based primers are better than latex primers at sealing nail heads, covering knots in bare wood, and blocking tannin bleeding and other stains. They are also better for sealing bare window muntins that will be covered with oil-based window putty.
