Exilva – proudly presented by Borregaard, the World's most advanced biorefinery.
Exilva is a new type of bio-based additive, tailored to improve performance in waterborne and polar product systems. Its novel nature gives it rheological and mechanical functionalities.LEARN MORE ABOUT EXILVA
Borregaard’s innovative product Exilva microfibrillated cellulose, not only offers rheology modification, but also a long list of other advantages in a material that demonstrates high efficacy and robustness in harsh environments.LEARN MORE ABOUT MULTIFUNCTIONALITY
Exilva is a pre-activated product, available as a 2% suspension or a 10% paste. Based on our proprietary technology, Borregaard has developed the P-series and the F-series to suit applications with a wide variety of demands.EXPLORE PRODUCT CHARACTERISTICS
Borregaard has constructed the world’s first commercial-scale production facility for microfibrillated cellulose. Since 2016, Exilva has been produced at the production plant in Sarpsborg, Norway.LEARN MORE ABOUT THE PRODUCTION
Exilva is all-natural and has a low carbon footprint. It is a nano/microfibrillated product sourced from Norwegian and Swedish forests that are managed in a sustainable and eco-friendly mannerLEARN MORE ABOUT SUSTAINABILITY
Microfibrillated cellulose can be extremely effective when dispersed properly in the formulation. Pay attention to influence of mixing time, shear rates and tip speed.LEARN MORE ABOUT DISPERSION
By adding Exilva to your product, you should find features and benefits like:
High yield stress giving improved stability of water borne or polar solvent systems at low shear
Extreme shear thinning with very fast viscosity recovery provides benefits during applying of water borne or polar solvent systems.
Very high surface area provides substantial binding benefits and film forming of high strength films
Exilva is a completely natural and bio-based Microfibrillated cellulose that improves rheology and stability, as well as enhancing structure in your product formulations. Exilva increases your formulation efficiency, reduces your CO2 footprint and creates exciting opportunities for innovation.
