Decorative Coating additives are chemical formulations of solvents and other polymers, which when applied to a surface result into a thin layer that is decorative. Decorative coatings include paints, drying oils and varnishes, synthetic clear coatings, and other products whose primary function is to protect the surface of an object from the environment. These products can also enhance the aesthetic appeal of an object by accentuating its surface features. The main factors owing to the innovation of various additives in this industry include high processing costs, legislation issues with Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), sustainability and the desire for more ecofriendly products. There are different technologies and materials that are used for achieving this objective; UV curing decorative coatings is one important evolution in this field.
