Curran® – coatings additive from sustainable resources

We are delighted to formally announce our representation of Cellucomp, a dynamic and innovative material science company based in Scotland. Curran® is a novel material developed from the extraction of nano-cellulose fibres of root vegetables, which offers film enhancing properties for paints and coatings.

Curran® can be described as a high performance co-binder for waterborne systems, which brings enhanced mechanical strength and water resistance to the coating film.  Its unique properties result in formulations with significantly increased crack resistance yet much reduced solvent content and improved drying, open-time and application properties.
