Coatings Ingredients

Wetting Agents / Wet Edge Enhancers

Wetting agents / wet edge enhancers are added to paints and coatings formulations to reduce the surface tension and facilitate uniform wetting of the surface. Wetting agents also prevent formation of defects while the coating cures and even after drying. Various anionic, cationic and nonionic surfactants, polymers, silicones and waxes are commercially available as wetting agents.
