Tape casting

Low viscosity Tylose® grades are used in moderate concentrations for this application. There they act as a film forming agent and prevent sedimentation of solid particles in the tape casting slip. Tylose® has good compatibility with plasticisers and makes flexible, ceramic films possible.
