Coating additives are special solutions that are added to paints to enhance their performance and quality. Coating additives enhance wettability, gloss control, anti-chipping and dispersion of solids, anti-catering, and provide UV protection to paint coatings. Additives are used in small quantity but they have a huge influence on coating and application properties. When additives are used at the right time, in the right order, and at the right level they help improve the appearance and durability of coatings, the efficiency of the manufacturing process, sustainability of formulations and flow of paints and inks.

Based on functions, the coating additives market is segmented into rheology modifiers, wetting and dispersion agents, biocides, and anti- foaming agents. The change in the structure or flow of materials due to external stress to improve the thickness and viscosity of coated surfaces is related to Rheology modification. Anti-foaming process is used to reduce or prevents the formation of foam on paint films or coatings. Other functions of these additives include leveling, drying, surface modification, and anti-sagging, among others.
