Water-based paint additives are substances that are added to water-based paints to modify their properties and enhance their performance. Some common additives for water-based paint, supplied by India’s leading water-based paint additive suppliers Ankush Enterprise include:
1. Thickeners or Viscosifiers: These water-based paint additives increase the thickness or viscosity of the paint, making it easier to apply and reducing drips and sags.
2. Flow and Leveling Agents: These additives for water-based paints reduce the viscosity of the paint which improves its flow and application properties by creating a smooth, even finish.
3. Wetting Agents: These additives improve the paint's ability to wet and penetrate the surface, increasing its durability.
4. De-foamers: These anti-foaming water-based paint additives reduce or eliminate foam in the paint, thus preventing the formation of air bubbles on the painted surface. This reduces imperfections in the finished surface and improves its appearance.
5. Anti-Skinning Agents: These additives for water-based paint prevent the paint from drying too quickly, and forming a skin on the surface, which can make it difficult to apply additional coats or touch up the painted surface.
6. Anti-Fading Agents: These are water-based paint additives that prevent the paint from fading or discoloring over some time due to exposure to sunlight or other environmental factors like UV radiation, rain, etc.
7. Pigment Dispersants: These additives for water-based paints help the pigments to be evenly distributed throughout the paint, improving its color consistency and enabling uniform coverage.
8. Emulsion Stabilizers: These are water-based paint additives that help improve the stability of the paint, reducing its risk of separation or curdling.
9. Drying Agents: These are additives for water-based paints that accelerate the drying time of the paint, thereby facilitating it to be applied more quickly and efficiently.
10. Biocides: These are water-based paint additives that help prevent the growth of mold, mildew, and other micro-organisms on the painted surface.
11. Fire Retardants: These additives help make the paint more resistant to fire, which is important in certain applications such as painting buildings and structures.
