Substances that have the ability to permanently bind materials together are called binders. They are necessary to create durable connections between materials in many industries, such as: construction (e.g. cement and gypsum), painting (e.g. adhesives), printing, industry, or crafts (e.g. as soldering paste).
The choice of a proper binder depends on the type of the components which are to be bound, as well as on requirements for strength, flexibility, abrasion and other properties. Binders in printing inks are designed to wet the pigment, improve the rheological properties of the ink, and bind the pigment to the substrate. On the other hand, those used in paints and varnishes most often act as emulsions.
