The NEXIVA® brand comprises spray-dried polymeric binders for use as binders in architectural coatings as well as paints, adhesives, nonwovens, carpet, sealant and paper applications.
The technology is suitable for manufacturing interior wall paints in either liquid or powder form. These dispersible polymer powders allow the formulation of paints without the addition of biocides and offer key advantages when it comes to storing and transporting paints.
