Anti-skinning agents’ mechanism is related to the prevention of coating crust in paint drying that defines the polymerization process of paint and drier effect. General anti-skinning agents add amount in terms of total amount of paint for 0.1~0.3% while add amount of varnish should be controlled around 0.25%. The increasing use of methylethylketoxime (MEKO) skinning agent in alkyd-based paints used for printing inks, industrial wood, pigment dispersions, and general industrial end-uses to prevent skinning factor are fueling the growth of Middle East & Africa anti-skinning agents market. The factor which is restricting to use anti-skinning agents is the increase in drying time due to anti-oxidant property. Dosage should be carefully optimized to attain right level of anti-skinning activity and drying time. Skinning in the paint film after application is also disadvantageous. Excessively rapid drying of the surface of the paint prevents the lower film layers from drying evenly because they are shielded from oxygen, which is prevented from sufficiently penetrating into and dispersing within the paint film. This can lead among other things to flow problems in the paint film, adhesion problems, or insufficiently hard films. Middle East and Africa Anti-Skinning Agents in Paints market is surging owing to frequent acquisitions and launchings by the market players. For instance, the company named Brochers has developed an oxime-free anti-skinning agent, which have anti-oxidant properties similar to oximes and phenols, and are non-hazardous substitutions for them.
