What Raw Materials Are Included In Paints?
Paint typically consists of binders, pigments and fillers, solvents or water, and the so-called additives. When developing new paint, the raw materials are chosen for compatibility with the object to be painted. The mixing ratio varies depending on the type of paint. The choice of raw materials plays an important role in the environmental impact, quality and safety of the products. The most significant impacts on the environment result from the production of raw materials, for instance, titanium dioxide and fillers, and the release of solvents during the application of solvent-borne paints.
