Creating Curran®, an innovative paint additive that prevents cracking using food processing by-products.

CelluComp is a material science company producing Curran® - a nano-fibre product made from agri-food waste streams from root crop. As a mechanical enhancer with thickening properties, this product can be used to improve properties in many different products, such as paints and coatings and concrete.

As a renewable, bio-based product with no Volatile Organic Compounds, Curran® has attracted considerable interest from companies looking for a more sustainable approach to manufacturing and a reduced reliance on petrochemical products. Given the significant level of interest and wide range of possible applications for Curran®, CelluComp is a company with high growth potential both in Scotland and internationally. They are looking to create around 15 jobs at the facility in Glenrothes.
