Air-Drying

Air-Drying is the process of drying paint by exposing it to air at normal temperatures. Water-borne paint uses air drying as opposed to standard solvent based paints, which may use heat to facilitate drying. Water-borne paints are relatively new to the U.S. market but have been used for years in other parts of the world.
