Several commercial paints are deployed for diverse operational requirements in the painting industry. Paint provides the primary functions such as improving the surface appearance and facilitating surface safety when exposed to the physical environment such as water, air, sunlight, etc., in vast proportions worldwide. Therefore, it is essential to examine the commercial paints using different laboratory techniques before they can be optimized and generalized for various industrial and domestic purposes. Material components and the structural analysis of the paint have been performed in the present work. The elemental compositions were obtained based on the EDX and X-ray diffraction techniques. EDX techniques are found to be useful for elemental composition. In the present research, the crystalline characteristic of the paint was also examined using diffraction peak analysis through the XRD technique. Classification of paints, accomplished using these laboratory techniques, has been categorized into several types, such as synthetic, organic, inorganic, and metallic paints.
