Basic Information

EPOSTAR™ MV are acrylic-based, crosslinked, perfectly spherical fine particles with an average particle diameter of 2 – 10 μm, which have been developed using Nippon Shokubai’s proprietary technology. EPOSTAR™ MV is highly rated for having excellent heat resistance, solvent resistance, and dispersibility, and for applications in light diffusion agents and anti-blocking agents of various films.
