There is a growing interest to shift from solvent borne systems to waterborne systems due to the environmental as well legislation reasons. However, the change is not always straightforward and often new technologies are needed in order to obtain the same performance as with solvent borne systems.

Exilva (cellulose fibrils) is a new performance enhancer for waterborne paints and coatings. Its unique combination of characteristics from water soluble polymers and insoluble fibrils gives you a very versatile and efficient alternative to technologies currently available. Exilva secures high viscosity at rest, giving good stability, as well as offering shear thinning behaviour and rapid viscosity build-up, which prevents sag during application. The high inertness, compatibility and chemical stability of Exilva opens up new possibilities for waterborne paints and coatings, especially for the more demanding formulations.
