emulsion paint

Definition

Construction

  • A paint comprising tiny beads of resin binder that, along with pigments, are dispersed in water. evaporation of the water affects the coalescence of the resin particles, thus forming a film that adheres to the surface and binds the pigment particles. vinyl, latex, or plastic paints are examples based on polyvinyl acetate emulsion.
