Micronised polyamide rheology modifier for high-solids and solvent-free systems
Product overview
CRAYVALLAC® OPTIMA is a high performance, micronised amide wax rheology modifier suitable for high-solids and solvent-free applications recommended for its ease of activation and smooth viscosity recovery (good levelling). CRAYVALLAC® OPTIMA overcomes those difficulties which exist with hydrogenated castor oil based rheology modifiers e.g. seeding and false-body without the need of increasing the temperature of activation. Its smooth viscosity recovery will help to achieve high film thickness without compromising a good levelling.
