Additives for Paints & Coatings

Borregaard offers bio-based, sustainable and innovative thickener and dispersant additives for multiple water-based paint, ink and coating systems. 

Borregaard's Exilva® Microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) is a completely natural and infinitely sustainable, multifunctional low shear thickener with minimal impact on mid and high shear.

Exilva can help customers solve typical challenges related to formulating waterborne coatings and replace current synthetic additives to reduce the CO2 footprint and increase bio-based content in their products. These challenges include:

  • Mud-cracking
  • Sedimentation
  • Settling
  • Syneresis
  • Sag & levelling
  • Low strength
  • Low shear viscosity

Borregaard’s sustainable dispersants are used in a wide range of applications to modify the rheology of aqueous systems for both organic and inorganic pigments, like carbon black, iron oxides and titanium dioxide.

Our lignin biopolymers help you increase milling efficiency and solids loading of water-based systems. These bio-based dispersants control the rheology of your pigments for paint systems and inks for textile printing. They offer good viscosity control by modifying dispersion rheology when used alone or in combination with other dispersants.
