Versagel MD Series are fast-drying and transfer-resistant gels. The gelled Isododecane (C12 isoparaffin) of Versagel® MD provides a highly volatile emollient with a light, non-greasy and low residue skin feel. These gels are an ideal vehicle for delivering pigments and other solid materials in quick-set/fast-dry anhydrous applications. With a low viscosity and density, Versagel MD products have high spreadability and are used as a film former for applications that require transfer resistance.
