CRAYVALLAC® ANTISETTLE CVP is a micronised hydrogenated castor oil rheology modifier for solvent-based and solvent-free systems. CRAYVALLAC® ANTISETTLE CVP particles are converted during formulation to an interacting network of fiber like particles. It is this network that gives rise to the final coating’s shear thinning rheology. This shear-thinning characteristic provides a very high viscosity under the low shear rates associated with sedimentation, and a low viscosity at the much higher application shear rates. The net result is excellent control of sedimentation combined with ease of application.In addition to coatings applications, CRAYVALLAC® ANTISETTLE CVP has also been used successfully in a multitude of other applications.
