Valida is a natural and biodegradable thickener based on fibrillated cellulose (also known as microfibrillated or nanofibrillated cellulose) that thickens via a 3D network of hydrogen-bonded fibres. Valida offers unique benefits compared to conventional cellulosic thickeners and is used in coatings, inks and adhesives for improved stability and water retention. In contrast to conventional cellulose, it is non-water soluble, stable to electrolytes and provides thickening from pH 1 to 13.
In concrete, Valida reduces bleeding, and segregation and provides reinforcement.
