Anti-sag Agent

Last updated: February 27, 2019

What Does Anti-sag Agent Mean?

An anti-sag agent is a chemical substance that is added to a surface or mixed with a coating to prevent weakening of the coat due to gravity. The weakening due to gravitational forces is known as sagging.


Corrosionpedia Explains Anti-sag Agent

Anti-sag agents are particularly useful for those applications that use dense coating paints because they are more affected by gravity. Anti-sag agents help prolong the coating's lifetime during and after application by preventing the coating from falling away from the corrosion prone surface to be protected.
