PU vs DUCO PAINT
What is Duco Paint?
Duco paint works as a finishing element over the wooden furniture during the making and coating process. To hide wood grains, the Duco paint is applied by trained painters and wood polishers and the proper use of Duco paint can provide a decent and luxurious look to your ordinary furniture. Duco paint is ideally fit for metallic surfaces and is thus extensively used to paint automobiles. Let’s know what is PU paint.
What is PU Paint?
PU paint is to give a final finish and a fine texture to the wooden surface. These coatings applied by professional wood polishers protect the wood from scratches, dust, moisture, and deflections in shape. Wood furniture enhances the décor of a home and if it can do so much to your home, then before installing it, proper finishing must be done.
Where to Use Paint
Duco paint offers a huge area for its application involving wooden furniture, automobile body, plywood, medium-density fibreboard, sheet metal, heavy equipment, and architectural and industrial metal structures.
PU paint is the perfect coating for interior and exterior wooden surface use. Solvent-base PU polish is highly recommendable for exteriors. PU gloss goes well with wood, metals, plastic, and glass furniture, and is ideal for industrial applications.

To apply for both an expert skill is required. PU application is more difficult. Both paints require a machine spray hence an experienced skilled applicator is required.
Life Cons of Duco and PU:

Exterior Use of Duco and PU:
Both uses but PU is more reliable than Duco, so many people prefer PU for exterior Painting.
Both are stronger but PU has a better strength compared to Duco, It takes more time to dry but once it is dried it is more robust
Duco paint has a long life which makes it a smart option to select for interior or exterior painting but on the other hand, the durability of PU lasts longer than Duco. As a result, it ranks first in terms of durability.
Finish Quality of Duco and PU:
Both are available in gloss and matte finishes. The gloss finish level achieved in PU is better than Duco. The matte finish is more soothing in PU when compared to Duco.
PU is a premium quality that gives the upper hand in high-quality metallic effects to wood and metal surfaces. The metallic effects available in PU are superb; Duco fails to give that effect. All the metallic effects are not available in Duco but available in PU.
