Paint Components

The resin is the film-forming component that identifies the paint. A variety of resins and polymers (materials that will undergo reaction to form a resin) are used in paints. The formulation of a paint material and the particular chemicals used are influenced by the particular resin or resin combination used. The blend of resin (sometimes referred to as the binder) and solvent is sometimes referred to as the paint vehicle.
