AMAZE XT film former is an anionic polymer, supplied as an off-white powder. Multi-functional, it serves as both the fixative and the thickener/suspending agent for gels and other styling aids. AMAZE XT film former provides unprecedented hold under highly humid conditions without being tacky or flaking. It is easy to use, as it disperses quickly in water and does not require neutralization, resulting in as much as an 80% reduction in manufacturing time compared to traditional gel systems.
