    VP/VA copolymer comes in several different grades - which one did you use?
    you’ll get better and more consistent results using a more hydrophobic polymer, e.g. un-neutralised Amphomer
    also, regarding your silica dimethyl silylate, what is the surface area per gram, and how does that compare to Aerosil R 812 S? (the value should be in the technical documents)
