Valida fibrillated cellulose for enhanced stabilisation, thixotropy and open time

Valida is a unique fibrillated cellulose that forms an extensive 3D network in water via a combination of hydrogen-bonding and mechanical entanglement. Able to stabilise both solid particles and oil droplets in suspension, Valida improves in-can stability, reduces cracking during drying, and adjusts open time in addition to imparting thixotropy. 

Learn more about the benefits of Valida in the below video from SAPPI.
