Biocides – The Lifeline Of Paints

Biocides are being used in paints to enhance their longevity and to maintain their quality.  Biocide additives have been designed to keep bacteria from spoiling paints during storage or to keep fungi and algae from growing on the applied paints. The market for biocides in paints will continue to grow due to the switch from solvent based to water based paints as they are not hazardous for human health and environment and also due to growing demand for water-based paints with biocides that minimizes fungal and algae growth. However, replacement of traditional biocides based on chlorine and formaldehyde with environmentally friendly biocides adds to the costs of paint production.

Paints are any liquids or liquefiable or mastic compositions which on application to a substrate in a thin layer will convert into a solid film. They are most commonly used to protect color or provide texture to objects. An industrial coating is a paint or coating defined by its protective, rather than its aesthetic properties, although it can provide both. The most common use of industrial coatings is for corrosion control of steel structures such as offshore platforms, bridges and underground pipelines.
