Synopsis

There is a known tendency for microspheres to float to the surface, and they can also settle if they have a higher density. The addition of cellulose fibrils with a spider web like 3D network of non-soluble micro fibers can capture and hold microspheres, thus preventing the floating or settling of microspheres in formulation.

Cellulose fibrils are known to strengthen coating films, being shear thinning when applied and showing high viscosity at rest. High viscosity at rest is the key keeping microspheres in suspension, physically disabling the spheres of floating to the surface.
Cellulose fibrils capability to stabilize and protect density-reducing fillers till use, capability for crush strength, effects on thermal conductivity and in can stability to prevent premature surface drying and prevent microspheres being destroyed before use are technical potentials to handle certain challenges in the industry.
