Paint is a term used to describe a number of substances that consist of a pigment suspended in a liquid or paste vehicle such as oil or water. With a brush, a roller, or a spray gun, paint is applied in a thin coat to various surfaces such as wood, metal, or stone. Although its primary purpose is to protect the surface to which it is applied, paint also provides decoration.
Common VOCs in paints, primers and varnishes include benzene, formaldehyde, kerosene, ammonia, toluene, and xylene, all of which are known carcinogens and neurotoxins. Exposure to VOCs can irritate your eyes, nose, throat and skin and are proven to increase allergies, asthma, and respiratory problems, central nervous system symptoms such as headache, rapid heartbeat and even weaken the immune system. They can also be harmful to the liver and kidneys.

Paint is any pigmented liquidliquefiable, or mastic composition that, after application to a substrate in a thin layer, converts to a solid film. It is most commonly used to protect, color, or provide texture to objects. Paint can be made or purchased in many colors—and in many different types, such as watercolor or synthetic.
The invention relates to a process for incorporating a water insoluble biocide into a water-borne latex paint and to new compositions containing the insoluble biocide. Latex paints are water-borne systems that are generally manufactured by a two-step process. First, a dispersion phase, commonly referred to as the grind phase, is prepared by mixing dry paint pigments with other grind phase components, including most other solid powder formulation materials, under constant high shear agitation to provide a high viscosity and high solids mixture.
As more and more do-it-yourselfers DIY ers request green coatings, paint manufacturers are now developing paints with water-based formulations. Manufacturers are focusing on developing bio-based paints and coatings to cater to the growing demand for clean products. The basic secondary raw materials of a latex paint include the solvent, resin, pigment, extenders, and additives.

The modern manufacture of paints, which are generally made in batches, involves three major steps: i mixing and grinding of raw materials; ii tinting shading and thinning; and iii filling operations US Environmental Protection Agency,as illustrated in Figure 1. Process for manufacturing solvent-based paints a. To produce a batch of paints, manufacturers first load an appropriate amount of pigment, resin and various liquid chemicals into a roller mill, which is a large, hollow, rotating steel cylinder.
