Orcocryl FRM™ is a high glass transition temperature acrylic polymer emulsion designed for improving firmness of hand in nonionic and anionic pigment padding systems where PVA usage is not possible.
|Appearance||Milky white emulsion|
|Film||Clear, hard, non-tacky|
|pH||4.0 – 4.5|
- Improved hand without loss of fastness
- Compatibility with many chemical systems
- The addition of formaldehyde type cross-linkers to improve hand is not necessary
- Less tendency than PVA’s to build up on pad rolls and cans
Depending on hand desired and base binder being used, it is recommended to add 20% to 25% Orcocryl FRM™ on the weight of pigment binder being used as a starting formulation.
Padding and curing should be done as usual.
