IFF continually invest in their nitrocellulose range to support ever evolving production processes

Nitrocellulose polymers are cellulose esters, derived from natural wood or cotton linters. IFF offers three different particle morphologies of WALSRODER™ Nitrocellulose – standard grades, free-flowing and chips. They are available in an array of viscosities and dampening agents or plasticizers.

Where can nitrocellulose be used?

Walsroder™ nitrocellulose and Walsroder™ NC-chips are predominantly used as binders in printing inks, nail varnishes, blotting membranes, leather coatings and wood coatings, but also in a wide variety of other coating applications. Our sales team are available to assist you in selecting the choice of Walsroder™ nitrocellulose products that best fits your needs.
