Main Grades

DIAFORMER™Z‐631
  • Excellent moisture resistance and easy washing-off performance at shampoo
  • Suitability for hair foam
  • Stable and creamy foam forming that easily smooths the hair
  • Flexible and elastic feel
  • Outstanding maintainability
DIAFORMER™Z‐632
  • Excellent moisture resistance and easy washing-off performance at shampoo
  • Suitability for hair foam
  • Stable and creamy foam forming that easily smooths the hair
  • Flexible and elastic feel
  • Outstanding maintainability
DIAFORMER™Z‐651
  • Excellent moisture resistance and easy washing-off performance at shampoo
  • Suitability for hair gel
  • Excellent gel transparency and preservation stability
  • Flexible and elastic feel
  • Outstanding maintainability
  • Natural hair-styling without flaking
  • Moisture resistant and long-lasting styling without stickiness even under high humidity
  • Easily washing-off performance because of the highly soluble film property
  • Prevention of tangled hair and dust adhesion caused by excellent anti-static properties
  • Good workability beause of no need for dissolution and neutralization
  • Excellent compatibility with other polymers and additives

Film Properties

Compared with common hair fixative polymers, DIAFORMER™ is excellent in its antistatic property (surface resistance), lack of sticky feel, and minimal flaking.
Since DIAFORMER™ has good film solubility, it can be washed out easily with shampoo.
