EXILVA IN COATINGS

A powerful and green little helper to your coating issues

Exilva is a Microfibrillar / Microfibrillated Cellulose (MFC) for paint and coatings systems. It is suitable where shear thinning and high viscosity recovery rate are critical to performance. Exilva shows superior barrier properties, giving the finished paint improved durability characteristics and is therefore as applicable to outdoor paints as to indoor paints, as well as industrial coatings. Exilva is a product with highly efficient dosage recommendations. Adding very small amounts quickly achieves the required properties for rheology, surface performance and stability.

Exilva for Coating application systems

Exilva is typically used in the following waterborne systems:

  • Acrylic paints and coatings
  • Epoxy paints and coatings
  • Polyurethane paints and coatings
  • Vinyl Acetate Emulsion paints and coatings

Advantages from Exilva:

  • Improved spraying through very fast viscosity recovery and excellent anti-sag properties
  • Improved dispersion and anti-settling of particles
  • Improved syneresis in your paint and coating products
  • Improved mud-crack resistance and barrier properties
  • Simplified material handling through versatility and robustness – stable in extreme environments including pH (2-12), temperature (20-100 °C) and shear
  • 100% natural and infinitely sustainable – improving your environmental profile
