Paint can be described as a liquid material capable of being applied or spread over a solid surface on which it subsequently dries or hardens to form a continuous, adherent, film. Paints basically consist of three major components and many additives which are included in minor quantities. The major components are:
- Binder (also called vehicle, medium, resin, film or polymer)
- Pigment and extender
Of these, only the first two forms the final dry paint film. Solvent is necessary only to aid paint application and the initial film formation, but inevitably, some solvent is always retained in practice depending upon the level of ventilation.
Binders are the film forming components of paint which determine the principal characteristics of the coating, both physical and chemical. Paints are generally named after their binder component (e.g. epoxy paints, chlorinated rubber paints, alkyd paints, etc.). The binder forms a permanent continuous film which is responsible for adhesion to the surface and which will contribute to the overall resistance of the coating to the environment. Binders used in the manufacture of paints fall into two classes, thermo set and thermoplastic. A thermo set coating when dry will be chemically different from the paint in the can. Thermo set coatings are not affected by solvents once cured.
With a Thermoplastic coating, the dry film and the wet paint differ only in solvent content and chemically, these remain essentially the same. If the solvent originally used is applied to a thermoplastic coating, it will soften and can be re-dissolved in that solvent.
Cross-linked (thermo set) coatings
These coatings are usually supplied in two separate packs which are mixed together immediately before application. In liquid paints where solvent is involved, drying is considered a two stage process. Both stages actually occur together but at different rates.
Stage One: Solvent is lost from the film by evaporation and the film becomes dry to touch.
Stage Two: The film progressively becomes more chemically complex by one of the following four methods:
1) Reaction with atmospheric oxygen, known as oxidation.
2) Reaction with an added chemical curing agent.
3) Reaction with water (moisture in the atmosphere).
4) Artificial heating.
This transformation in the paint is known as drying or curing. The films formed by the above methods are chemically different from the original binders and will not re-dissolve in their original solvent.
TYPES OF RESINS
These resins are particularly important and their development for use as binders was one of the most significant advances in anti-corrosion coating technology. The rate of cross-linking or curing is dependent on temperature. Below 5°C the curing rate of standard epoxies is considerably reduced and to obtain optimal film properties full cure is essential. Epoxies with special curing agents will cure or set at temperatures down to –5°C. It is essential that the coating manufacturer’s recommendations on application temperatures are strictly followed, to ensure that the coatings are effective in service.
The choice of curing agent is very important as with the base, this determines the properties of the film. There is a wide choice of both resins and curing agents which allows for formulation of products to suit most applications. Epoxies are used in both underwater and above water situations and show good resistance to many marine environments, including cathodic protection utilizing zinc or other anodes, but they have a tendency to chalk in sunlight. This process occurs when the binder is degraded by ultra violet light to produce a loose and friable surface, with the pigment particles remaining on the surface.
These are polymers formed by reaction between hydroxyl compounds and compounds containing isocyanates. In two-pack systems a special polyether or polyester resin with free hydroxyl groups is reacted with a high molecular weight isocyanate curing agent. A possible problem with these materials is their water sensitivity on storage and on application. Transport and storage should be in strict compliance with the manufacturers’ recommendations. Due to their poor curing properties at low temperatures manufacturers’ recommendations must be followed during application.
Polyurethane resins have excellent chemical and solvent resistance and are superior to standard epoxies in acid resistance. Epoxies are more resistant to alkaline than polyurethanes. Polyurethane finish coats are very hard and have extremely good gloss, gloss retention, and can be formulated to be non-yellowing. However in some instances, they can be difficult to overcoat after ageing and require very clean surfaces for optimum adhesion. Because of the isocyanate curing agent, there is also a potential health hazard when sprayed which can be overcome with the appropriate protective equipment.
Alkyd resins are formed by the reaction between a special organic acid (e.g. phthalic acid), a special alcohol (e.g. glycerolor pentaerythritol) and a vegetable oil or its fatty acids. The final properties of the alkyd depend on the percentage of oil(termed ‘oil length’) and also on the alcohol and organic acid used. Alkyds are not resistant to acids or alkalis and many of the modifications given below are aimed at improving this weakness, however, none provide complete resistance. Alkyd resins can be further modified with different resins for specific purposes.
These types comprise the silicates which are almost always used in conjunction with zinc dust. There are water-based inorganic silicates based on lithium, potassium, or sodium silicate and solvent based inorganic silicates normally based on ethyl silicate. Coatings based on these resins are very hard, corrosion resistant and temperature resistant. They require a good standard of surface preparation and are often repaired using organic coatings. The zinc in the inorganic resins can dissolve under acid or alkali conditions, but the coatings perform well under neutral and are often used as tank coatings
Anti Corrosive Paint:
Anti-corrosion refers to the protection of metal surfaces from corroding in high-risk (corrosive) environments. Corrosion resistant coatings protect metal components against degradation due to moisture, salt spray, oxidation or exposure to a variety of environmental or industrial chemicals. Anti-corrosion coating allows for added protection of metal surfaces and acts as a barrier to inhibit the contact between chemical compounds or corrosive materials
When metallic materials are put into corrosive environments, they tend to have chemical reactions with the air and/or water. The effects of corrosion become evident on the surfaces of these materials. For example, after putting a piece of iron into a corrosive atmosphere for an extended period, it starts rusting due to oxygen interaction with water on the surface of the piece of iron.
Metal equipment lacking any preventive (anti-corrosive) measures may become rusted both inside and out, depending upon atmospheric conditions and how much of that equipment is exposed to the air. There are a number of methods for preventing corrosion, especially in marine applications. Anti-corrosion measures are of particular importance in environments where high humidity, mist, and salt are factors.
Corrosion resistant coatings protect metal components against degradation due to moisture, salt spray, oxidation or exposure to a variety of environmental or industrial chemicals. The anticorrosive paints impede or obstruct the corrosion by reducing the direct access of air and water to the metal. Anti corrosion coating allows added protection of metal surfaces and acts as a barrier to inhibit the contact between chemical compounds or corrosive materials.
Anti corrosive paint is a composition of corrosion resistant pigments such as zinc chromate, lead chromate, zinc oxide, zinc dust, zinc chromate, or red lead. Linseed oil is used as a binder in the anti corrosive paint.
Properties of Anti Corrosive Paint:
Anti corrosive paints should have quick drying and hardening properties. It has good abrasion resistance, good rust prevention, water resistance and good impact resistance. It is a cheap and long lasting corrosion protection.
Anti corrosive Paints are applied on metallic surfaces. It is also applied on ferrous metal, cast iron and steel surfaces. Anti corrosive paints are used for preservation of structural steel work against acid fumes and adverse weather conditions. It protects the metal components against degradation due to moisture, salt spray, oxidation or exposure to various weather conditions and industrial chemicals. There are majorly used in Oil and Gas Facilities, Industrial Facilities, Commercial and Residential Facilities to preserve them from corrosion attack.
Application of Anti Corrosive Paint:
- Paints are mixed thoroughly before use. It can be applied with a brush, a roller or a sprayer.
- Anti corrosive Paints are not ready to use. You have to add solvents (white spirit or other benzene) before the application. If you don’t add thinner in the paint, there are chances of appearance of various defects on finished paint walls.
Benefits of Anti-Corrosion Coatings
Coatings with anti-corrosive properties ensure metal components have the longest possible lifespan. Because metal components run in harsh applications.

Water proofing in buildings is the formation of an impervious barrier over surfaces of foundations, roofs, walls and other structural members of building to prevent water penetrations through these surfaces. The building surfaces are made water-resistant and sometimes waterproof.
Applications of Waterproofing are in the following type of structures Water Treatment Plants, All kinds Roof, Sewage, Treatment Plants, Bridges, Dams, Railway & Subway Systems, Marine Cargo Ports & Docks, River Locks/Channels & Concrete Decks, Parking Structures & Lots, Tunnels, Building Foundations, Balconies, Bathrooms, Swimming pools, Water tanks, etc.
Commonly used materials for waterproofing in building is cementious material, bituminous material, liquid waterproofing membrane and polyurethane liquid membrane etc.
TYPES OF WATERPROOFING METHODS FOR BUILDINGS
The following waterproofing methods are commonly used in construction:
1 CEMENTITIOUS WATERPROOFING
2 LIQUID WATERPROOFING MEMBRANE
3 BITUMINOUS MEMBRANE
4 BITUMINOUS COATING
5 POLYURETHANE LIQUID MEMBRANE
1. Cementitious Waterproofing Method
Cementitious is a highly flexible, polymer-modified cement membrane, which can be easily applied by brushing or with spray equipment for larger applications. It is the easiest method of waterproofing in construction. The materials for cementitious waterproofing are easily available, and they’re easy to mix and apply.
2. Liquid Waterproofing Membrane Method
Liquid membrane is a thin coating which consists of usually a primer coat and two coats of top coats which are applied by spray, roller, or trowel. It offers more flexibility than the cementitious types of waterproofing.
The liquid cures into a rubbery coating on the wall. The elongation properties of the coating can reach as high as 280%. The durability of the waterproofing coating depends on what type of polymer the manufacturer use for the making of the liquid waterproofing.
Liquid Waterproofing Membrane is highly resistant to aggressive soils and soluble salts providing an effective continuous barrier and protection against water borne damage. It is ideally suited as a vapour / salt barrier to building facades behind granite, marble, stone cladding, and curtain wall elements.
Liquid waterproofing membrane can be of spray-applied liquid membrane composed of polymer-modified asphalt.
3. Bituminous Coating Waterproofing Method
Bituminous coating is a type of coating used for waterproofing and flexible protective coat in accordance with its formulation and polymerization grade. Its flexibility and protection against water can be influenced by the polymer grade as well as reinforcement of fiber.
Bituminous coating is also called asphalt coating. The most common applications of bituminous coatings include areas that are beneath screed wet. It is an excellent protective coating and waterproofing agent, especially on surfaces such as concrete foundations.
Bituminous coating is made of bitumen based materials and it is not suitable for expose to sunlight. It becomes very brittle and fragile when long exposure to the sunlight unless it is modified with more flexible material such as polyurethane or acrylic based polymers.
The flexibility of the finished products always depends on the solid content of the polymer added to the bitumen.
4. Bituminous Membrane Waterproofing Method
Bituminous membrane waterproofing is a popular method used for low-sloped roofs due to their proven performance. Bituminous waterproofing membrane have torch on membrane and self-adhesive membrane.
Self-adhesive compounds comprise asphalt, polymers and filler; additionally, certain resins and oils may be added to improve adhesion characteristics. The self-adhesive type has low shelf life as bonding properties of the membrane reduces with time.
Torch on membrane have exposed and covered types. Exposed membrane often has mineral granular aggregate to withstand the wear and tear of the weathering and the other types of membrane, contractor need to apply one protective screed to prevent the puncture of the membrane.
5. Polyurethane Liquid Membrane Waterproofing Method
Polyurethane liquid membrane method of waterproofing is used for the flat roof area and exposed to weathering. This waterproofing method is expensive.
Polyurethane Liquid Membrane can offer higher flexibility. Polyurethane is very sensitive to moisture content present, therefore before application, one has to be very careful evaluating the moisture content of the concrete slab, otherwise peeling or de-bonding of membranes may happen after some time.

- Mono-ethylene Glycol (MEG)
- Di-ethylene Glycol (DEG)
- Tri-ethylene Glycol (TEG).
- Diethanolamine (DEA)
Xylene is a clear, colorless, sweet-smelling solution of three aromatic hydrocarbon isomers produced from crude oil through a process called alkylation. Xylene consists of three distinct isomers: paraxylene, orthoxylene and metaxylene. Xylene is both naturally occurring and manmade, and is widely used as a solvent in the leather, rubber and printing industries. Other applications of xylene include chemical intermediates, and high-motor and aviation gasoline blending agents. Xylene is also used in breathing devices (inhalers) for administering artificial respiration because of its intoxicating properties. In small doses, it produces euphoria and disinhibition, but it also causes dizziness and hallucinations.
Xylene is a raw material in the production of a monomer (a simple compound with molecules that join together to form polymers) called terephthalic acid. Terephthalic acid is used in the manufacture of polymers (naturally occurring or synthetic compounds consisting of large molecules). It is a good cleaning agent for silicon wafers and steel. It is also used to sterilize many substances. Xylene is used as a feedstock in the production of petrol. It is also found in small proportions in gasoline and jet fuel.
Xylene is one of the most copiously produced chemicals in the United States. It is extensively used as a thinner and solvent in paints, varnishes, adhesives and inks. A xylene mixture can be used to thin lacquers (a black resinous substance used a natural varnish) when slower drying is desired. Xylene is often used as a solvent in pesticides products.
Applications of Paraxylene
Paraxylene is one of the isomers of xylene. It is a colorless, volatile liquid. Paraxylene is a very important raw material in the preparation of PET (polyethylene terephthalate) chips, which are extensively used in packing industries, for example, for mineral water and carbonated soft drink bottles. Paraxylene is also used in the manufacture of PTA (purified terephthalic acid), which is a basic petrochemical used in the textile industry for making polyester.
Use in Histology
Xylene is used in histology to clean tissue for the preparation of paraffin wax. It is also used to prepare very thin slice of tissues for microscopic examination by making them hydrophobic (i.e. lacking affinity for water) so a coverslip can be used.
The majority (more than 90 percent) of mixed xylene isomers is used for blending into petrol and gasoline, and the rest in different solvent applications for the printing industry, pharmaceuticals, perfumes, fabricated items and pesticide formulations, to name a few. Xylene is also used in the preparation of individual isomers, which are often used in making certain types of plastics
MONOETHYLENE GLYCOL (MEG)
Monoethylene glycol (MEG) is an important raw material for industrial applications. A primary use of MEG is in the manufacture of polyester (PET) resins, films and fibers. In addition, MEG is important in the production of antifreezes, coolants, aircraft anti-icer and deicers and solvents.
These applications are vital to the manufacture of a wide variety of products, including:
- Deicing fluids
- Heat transfer fluids
- Automotive antifreeze and coolants
- Water-based adhesives
- Latex paints and asphalt emulsions
- Electrolytic capacitors
- Textile fibers
Ethylene glycol (monoethylene glycol) in its pure form, it is an odorless, colorless,
syrupy liquid with a sweet taste.
Production of Ethylene Glycol
Ethylene glycol is produced from ethylene, via the intermediate ethylene oxide
Ethylene oxide reacts with water to produce ethylene glycol according to the chemical equation
C2H4O + H2O → HOCH2CH2OH
This reaction can be catalyzed by either acids or bases, or can occur at neutral pH under elevated temperatures. The highest yields of ethylene glycol occur at acidic or neutral pH with a large excess of water. Under these conditions, ethylene glycol yields of 90% can be achieved. The major byproducts are the ethylene glycol oligomers diethylene glycol, triethylene glycol, and tetraethylene glycol.
DIETHYLENE GLYCOL (DEG)
Diethylene glycol (DEG) is an organic compound with the formula (HOCH2CH2)2O. It is a colorless, practically odorless, poisonous, and hygroscopic liquid with a sweetish taste. It is miscible in w Diethylene glycol (DEG) ater, alcohol, ether, acetone, and ethylene glycol. DEG is a widely used solvent
Diethylene glycol is used in the manufacture of saturated and unsaturated polyester resins, polyurethanes, and plasticizers. DEG is used as a building block in organic synthesis, e.g. of morpholine and 1,4-dioxane. It is a solvent for nitrocellulose, resins, dyes, oils, and other organic compounds. It is a humectant for tobacco, cork, printing ink, and glue. It is also a component in brake fluid, lubricants, wallpaper strippers, artificial fog and haze solutions, and heating/cooking fuel. In personal care products (e.g. skin cream and lotions, deodorants), DEG is often replaced by selected diethylene glycol ethers. A dilute solution of diethylene glycol can also be used as a cryoprotectant; however, ethylene glycolis much more commonly used
TRIETHYLENE GLYCOL, TEG
Triethylene glycol, TEG, or triglycol is a colorless odorless viscous liquid with molecular formula HOCH2CH2OCH2CH2OCH2CH2OH. It is used as a plasticizer for vinyl polymers. It is also used in air sanitizer products, such as “Oust” or “Clean and Pure”. When aerosolized it acts as a disinfectant. Glycols are also used as liquid desiccants for natural gas and in air conditioningsystems. It is an additive for hydraulic fluids and brake fluids and is used as a base for “smoke machine” fluid in the entertainment industry.
TEG is used by the oil and gas industry to “dehydrate” natural gas. It may also be used to dehydrate other gases, including CO2, H2S, and other oxygenated gases. It is necessary to dry natural gas to a certain point, as humidity in natural gas can cause pipelines to freeze, and create other problems for end users of the natural gas. Triethylene glycol is placed into contact with natural gas, and strips the water out of the gas. Triethylene glycol is heated to a high temperature and put through a condensing system, which removes the water as waste and reclaims the TEG for continuous reuse within the system. The waste TEG produced by this process has been found to contain enough benzene to be classified as hazardous waste (benzene concentration greater than 0.5 mg/L).
Triethylene glycol is well established as a relatively mild disinfectant toward a variety of bacteria, influenza A viruses and spores of Penicillium notatum fungi. However, its exceptionally low toxicity, broad materials compatibility, and low odor combined with its antimicrobial properties indicates that it approaches the ideal for air disinfection purposes in occupied spaces
DIETHANOLAMINE (DEA OR DEOA)
Diethanolamine (DEA or DEOA) is a colorless, viscous liquid organic chemical compound that is both a secondary amine and a dialcohol. According to the International Agency for Research, the compound is a suspected carcinogen to humans. The hydrophilic liquid is used as a surfactant as well as a corrosion inhibitor. DEA is also used to remove hydrogen sulfide from natural gas.
Diethanolamine is widely used to prepare diethanolamides and diethanolamine salts of long-chain fatty acids that are formulated into soaps and surfactants used in liquid laundry and dishwashing detergents, cosmetics, shampoos, and hair conditioners. Diethanolamine is also extensively used in textile processing, as well as industrial gas purification to remove acid gases. It is an anticorrosion agent in metalworking fluids, and in preparations of agricultural chemicals.
DEA is an oily, colorless liquid or solid white crystals and has a slight rotten fish or ammonia odor. It is very soluble in water and ethanol, and slightly soluble in ethyl ether and benzene.
Like all Ethanolamines, Diethanolamine is produced industrially exclusively by the reaction of ethylene oxide with excess ammonia.
