An emulsion is a form of paint and the main difference from normal paint is that instead of being dissolved in water, the binding polymers are just spread in it. When it is applied to a wall, the water evaporates and the binding polymers stick to the wall. In an emulsion pain there are many components including Co-polymer binder that can make up to 15 to 30 percent of the mass of emulsion. 20 % of mass comes from the white pigment put into the emulsion while the colored pigment is just between zero to five percent of mass. Then there are extenders added to emulsions that make up 15-25% of the mass. It also has a high water content that can be as high as 50 5 in some emulsions. The final components of emulsions are the additives.
