Do you know surfactants are actually used in such diverse ways in the paint industry!

November 15,2023

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:
