Biobased Multifunctional additive for paints

Description of my product

The JRS Rettenmaier additives, based on cellulose, are natural, environmentally friendly and multifunctional. The name of the range of these additives is ARBOCEL. ARBOCEL is a cellulose powder or fiber used for chemical building products. ARBOCEL is water insoluble and available in various grades differing in their length, thickness, purity ... The advantages of ARBOCEL cellulose powders or fibers for paints or coatings: 1) Reinforcing agent: reduction of the film tension and of cracking, increase of the wet scrub resistance and of the mechanical reinforcement 2) Rheology agent: pseudo plastic or structure viscous behavior, patter resistance increased, anti-sagging, easy application by spraying 3) Matting agent: micro-rough surface with sheen reduction. The higher the ARBOCEL quantity, the stronger the matting effect. Can be used also in transparent application 4) Lightweight filler: density approx. 1,3g/cm3, dosage recommendation: 2 parts of water for 1 part of ARBOCEL to obtain the same workability 5) Possibility to increase the open time due to the transport of liquid in the fiber 6) Uniform drying: no skin formation during the drying ARBOCEL can be used for interior/exterior paints, sprayable or structural paints. That is why different grades are available. We have developed innovative ARBOCEL grades like ARBOCEL fiber-gel with viscosity at high shear, stabilizing effect for pigments and fillers without increasing too much the viscosity and a thixotropic behavior.
