Paints typically consist of four main categories of ingredients: film-forming materials, pigments, solvents, and additives. Film-forming materials serve as the foundation of the paint, pigments are usually fine powdery colored substances, and except for solvent-free paints, various liquid paints generally contain solvents. Components used as paint solvents nowadays include water, hydrocarbons, aromatics, alcohols, esters, ethers, ketones, terpenes, chlorine-containing organic compounds, and more. Additives are supplementary components of paint, and in the paint industry,surfactants play a remarkably significant role.
Surfactants in paint can be categorized into the following types:
1. During the paint production process: defoamers, wetting and dispersing agents, emulsifiers, and more.
2. In the paint application and film-forming stage: drying agents, curing agents, leveling agents, anti-sag agents, and others.
3. Influencing paint film properties: plasticizers, gloss enhancers, anti-mold agents, flame retardants, anti-static agents, UV absorbers, and so on.
4. During paint storage: anti-skinning agents, anti-settling agents, and the like. 关键词及链接 Surfactants： https://www.hnlcaw.com/Amino-acid-based-surfactant/sodium-cocoyl-sarcosinate-with-the-solids-content-30010
