Chemical substance used to bind the input materials in the organic coating and provide adhesion of the coating film to the application surface as a rigid and continuous film. Binders commonly have polymeric structures, while, less commonly, they may have oligomeric or monomeric structures.
Amount of solvent-free binder present in 100 units of wet paint or binder solution.
Binders produced by stable dispersion of solid polymer particles, primarily, natural and synthetic rubber in water.
The ratio by weight of pigment content to solid binder content in paint formulation. See Also Solid binder content
Alkali metal silicates like sodium and potassium silicates have limited use as inorganic paint binder. Furthermore, ethyl silicate is used as a binder in anti-corrosive paints, especially in high corrosion resistant zinc-rich primers.
