They work together perfectly to help you reach your formulation goals. SAIB is an effective thickening agent and plasticizer, while CAB works as an excellent film former, creating a smooth and continuous coating. Together, they improve shine and strengthen nails for a better polish experience.
The low solution viscosity of Eastman SAIB allows excellent flow-out on nail surfaces. With proper formulation, they provide a combination of good flexibility and film hardness. The inclusion of 10 to 20% SAIB (based on total solids) in fluid coatings has resulted in improvements in glass and adhesion.
With the perfect combination of CAB and SAIB, your top coat will have a smoother application (even over a wet later), a glossier finish, and improved hardness for a longer lasting, more beautiful manicure.
CAB and SAIB create a fast drying solution that helps prevent marring. Together, they help create shine, prevent dullness, and provide light resistance for a long lasting gel polish.
