GOLDEN Wetting Aid Wetting Aid (formerly Wetting Agent) is a concentrated additive used to reduce surface tension of the water in acrylic emulsion, thereby increasing the slickness and flow of the paint. It is effective for achieving rich stains on a porous surface. Wetting Aid contains no binder and should only be used properly diluted per product instructions
GOLDEN Wetting Aid is a concentrated surfactant. A surfactant is a liquid, “surface-active” acrylic paint ingredient that reduces the surface tension of a waterborne product such acrylic paint, thus improving wetting and increasing the flow of acrylic waterborne paints. Most acrylic paints, mediums and other products contain low levels of surfactants, but as water is added into the paints, the need to add additional surfactant increases.
