ELASTICIZER CB-LF is a very low foaming additive for guar type gums that enhances their leg forming characteristics without adversely effecting the viscosity of the hydrated gum. This leg forming characteristic, or elasticity, greatly reduces the occurrence of breaks in the gum layer.
Normal usage is 1/2 to 4 grams per liter depending on gum viscosity, desired styling affects and the quantity of gum applied to the substrate. The addition of ELASTICIZER CB-LF generally reduces the quantity of gum that is required on the fabric. The order of addition varies from mill to mill but usually it is added just prior to hydration.
