Manufacturing of oil based paints

  • Manufacture is environmentally harmful.

  • Paint has three main components

    • Pigment gives it color

    • resin makes the pigment stick when the paint is applied and forms a solid layer of paint. (petrochemicals)

    • solvent keeps the paint in liquid form and evaporates once the paint is exposed to air.
