[IPA] The Hidden Helper in Paints

As we spend more time at home due to the spread of COVID-19,
interests in DIY home decoration is increasing to change the atmosphere in the house.
Painting would be one of the applications that can easily upgrade the ambience.

The paints we use are mixed with resin, the main component, solvents and hardeners that allow it to quickly dissolve and dry,
color-determining pigments, and additives to complement other functions.

IPA (Isopropyl alcohol) produced by LG Chem has excellent solvent properties, which helps to dissolve pigments and resins and controls the appropriate viscosity when painting.
It is also harmless to the human body and has strong evaporative properties, so residues don't remain after painting. It's a hidden helper that plays its part discreetly.

In addition, IPA(Isopropyl Alcohol) dissolves nonpolar substances and easily evaporates without leaving stains, which allows it to be applied widely as a cleaning solution for IT products such as semiconductors and LCDs.
