Wall paint is a type of paint specifically made for application on walls, either on concrete itself after applying a primer, or on non-woven wall paper.

I will give a brief summary.

smudge-resistant wall paint: a mixture of lime and water, previously widely used.
Latex wall paint: an emulsion with the sap of a rubber tree from Brazil. Latex is less porous and can be removed: application for walls and ceilings
Acrylatex wall paint: a latex with a different composition. The advantages are: you can clean the wall or ceiling well afterwards. Easy to use.
Vinyl latex wall paint: a latex that has been specially developed for wet areas such as a bathroom. Easily removable.
Synthetic wall paint: a wall paint for surfaces where, for example, fungi can get through. By applying this wall paint you keep the fungi away.
