Over the course of the history of “paint” (as with joint compounds), there have been thousands of producers of paint and even more formulations, each with several dozens of ingredients. Original paint formulations were based on readily available, natural plant-based oils, one or more organic solvent, emulsifiers, pigments and driers. Today most paint is “latex” or more accurately, water-based rather than oil-based, and the amount of VOCs (volatile organic content) has been drastically reduced for environmental reasons. While oil based paints have not completely gone away,now both attapulgite and silica to the oil base paint market, water based paints & coatings dominate all major architectural coatings markets.
