An aqueous emulsion for enhancing green strength of industrial ceramic parts. This product is provided as a ready-to-use water-based emulsion, with no dissolution required. Due to its low viscosity relative to other binders, the product can be used to prepare slurries at higher powder loadings. Unlike other water-based binders, spray-dried powders incorporating this product in their composition are highly insensitive to changes in humidity. Scrap containing this product can be reslurried and reused.
