emulsion

 [e-mul´shun]
a mixture of two immiscible liquids, one being dispersed throughout the other in small droplets; a colloid system in which both the dispersed phase and the dispersion medium are liquids. Margarine, cold cream, and various medicated ointments are emulsions. In some emulsions the suspended particles tend to join together and settle out; hence the container must be shaken each time the emulsion is used.
film emulsion a dehydrated gel emulsion of light- or radiation-sensitive silver halide that is applied to a suitable base.

e·mul·sion

(ē-mŭl'shŭn),
A system containing two immiscible liquids in which one is dispersed, in the form of small globules (internal phase), throughout the other (external phase) (for example, oil in water [milk] or water in oil [mayonnaise]).
[Mod. L. fr. e-mulgeo, pp. -mulsus, to milk or drain out]

However, for the remaining four systems (SD, SK, SX, and SR), the difference is very significant: for dry substrate, the drying of the painted mortar is always quite similar to that of the unpainted mortar but for wet substrate, the drying of the painted mortar is much slower and the influence of the four silicate systems becomes quite close (similar, in several cases) to that of the reference emulsion paint.
