Additives for solvent-based paint supplied exclusively by Ankush Enterprise are the chemical compounds added to improve and enhance the paint's properties such as viscosity, flow, levelling, gloss, and durability and make them of superior quality. They also enhance colour retention and prevent corrosion.
Solvent-based paints contain a solvent that acts as a carrier for the paint solids. These solids are usually pigments, resins, and additives. Several additives can be added to solvent-based paints to improve their performance and application properties. These additives can be divided into several categories including:
1. Corrosion Inhibitors: These anti-corrosion additives form a protective layer on the surface of the metal, preventing corrosion. An inhibitor is a chemical compound or mixture of chemicals that, when given at extremely low concentrations to a corrosive environment, effectively prevents or lowers corrosion while causing no substantial interaction with the environment's components.
2. Dispersants & Wetting Agent: These are additives used in solvent-based paints to improve the dispersion of pigments in paint, ensuring a more even distribution of colour on the surface.
3. Flow and Levelling Agents: These additives for solvent-based paints are added to help the paint flow evenly and smoothly over the surface, reducing brush or roller marks. This enables uniform levelling of the paint and a smoother finish.
4. Surface Tension Modifiers: They act as substrate-wetting agents to reduce the surface tension of the liquid. This additive provides superior surface smoothness and prevents the formation of fisheyes, craters and pinholes.
The use of a specific additive used in solvent-based paints depends upon the desired properties of the finished products and the specific application requirements.
Ankush Enterprise is a much sought-after supplier of additives for solvent-based paint suppliers in India. We supply the grades of high-quality additives for solvent-based paint from globally renowned companies like HEXIGONE INHIBITORS – UK, SILOK – CHINA, and RAYBO CHEMICAL COMPANY - USA.
