Description :
Curran® is a material produced by extraction of nano-cellulose fibres from root vegetables such as carrots and sugar beet, suitable for use in a variety of end applications.

Curran® has a unique set of features and benefits that make it a valuable option for paint coating formulators looking for solutions to rheology, application and film performance challenges. Combined with its renewable and environmentally friendly nature, this makes Curran® a great choice for companies developing Eco-friendly paints and coatings.

Properties of Curran® allow the production of composites. Bio-composites based on Curran® can be based on a variety of conventional resins such as epoxy, polyurethane and acrylics.

Curran® has been shown to improve rheological behaviour and enhance flexural strength in concrete.

The benefits of a green rheology modifier for Oil & Gas drilling are well appreciated. Combined with other materials Curran contributes to overall performance in a range of operations.

Other applications for Curran® include paper production, food production and in pharmaceuticals.
