Thinners are volatile chemical liquids used to dilute colors. These liquids can also improve the color properties. Thinners play a decisive role in the color properties, the drying time of the color layer and the final properties of the color formed. The right choice of a thinner affects the viscosity, shear properties, sprayability, drying speed and many other color properties. Properties to choose the right thinner are:
Solubility – Evaporation rate – Boiling point – Flash point and flammability – Toxicity – Other physical and chemical properties of thinners such as density, color, moisture content – Light refraction coefficient and percentage of non-volatiles Appropriate should be taken into consideration.
In the formulation of paints, the resins used are mainly polymeric and organic and have no crystalline structure. These materials are dissolved in thinners and the concentration of solution depends on the type of resin and thinner and the percentage of these materials.
Thinner’s flash point is important because it determines the severity of the fire risk. Whether in storage, shipment, or when using thinners, the thinner flash point should be taken into account. Thinners are not only environmentally hazardous to humans but also to the environment.
They carry natural oils and cause skin damage and absorption through the skin. Another factor in recognizing the color thinner is that it is one of their most important characteristics and reflects the purity, purity and purity of their dishes. Thinner color is especially important in the formulation of white and light colors.
Thinner and its applications , thinner can be used to clean the equipment and tools you have used. Thinners can be mixed to reduce the color viscosity so that it can be used in spray paint applicators. Another important application that most people are not aware of is that the thinner can be used to prevent the color from hardening after opening the product door.
