Air drying describes a product that naturally dries primarily because of its exposure to the air at room temperature.

This is different to other products that might need heating or those that dry independently from the air. Air drying, although commonly used to describe paints, can also be used for glues, fillers and other products.

Air drying works by means of evaporation and/or dissipation, where particles move from high concentration to low. Because of this, for the best result with air drying paint or other products, allowance for ventilation is key.

This not only allows it to dry faster but also helps stop a build-up of potentially harmful substances that are evaporated. The time taken for a product to air dry will depend on the product used, the air temperature and the humidity of the area. Air drying products are the ideal choice for home decoration and renovation due to their time and labour reducing properties.
