- Basic information
KEMIBESTO™ is dried and fluffed polyolefin synthetic pulp 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.
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.
KEMIBESTO™'s multi-branch structure affords uniform dispersion and superb particle entrapment in nano-silica particles, diatomaceous earth, bentonite, glass fiber etc.
KEMIBESTO™ is a polyolefin and therefore has high resistance to acids and alkali.
