  • Thixotropy
  • Viscosity control
  • Dispersion
  • Particle entrapment
  • Mouldability
  • Embossibility
  • Surface smoothness

Overview

KEMIBESTO is dried and fluffed polyolefin synthetic pulp (SWP) with multi-branch fibers that disperses readily in water or organic solvents. It is used for a broad range of applications such as thixo-agents and viscosity agents in coatings, adhesives and sealants, dispersion and particle entrapment in inorganic fillers, and binding agents in quasi-fiber products.

Properties

Thixotropy/Viscosity control

KEMIBESTO has superb thixotropic properties when added to various coatings, adhesives and sealants. Because of its multi-branch structure (trunks of tens of microns, branches and leaves of microns), KEMIBESTO effectively adheres to each other and to other materials. It has high thickening properties which can be realized with smaller amounts than inorganic fibers or silica thickening agents.

Dispersion/Particle entrapment

KEMIBESTO's multi-branch structure affords uniform dispersion and superb particle entrapment in nano-silica particles, diatomaceous earth, bentonite, glass fiber etc.

Chemical resistance

KEMIBESTO is a polyolefin and therefore has high resistance to acids and alkali.

Usage

Various coatings, adhesives, sealants and water-proof, putty, FRP, dryformed board, repair mortar and inorganic filler compound materials
