In emulsion systems, high molecular weight monoesters (> C-60) like those of carnauba, are popular for their film forming and barrier properties.These monoesters have been difficult to stabilize, but this is no longer the case using EC-80. This unique new product allows the formulator to add functionality, improve film thickness, and increase water resistance.
