  • Improved hand without loss of fastness

  • The addition of formaldehyde type cross-linkers to improve hand is not necessary

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.
