    ​Do you mean the Capacryl line?  I'm not aware of any sources in the US, sorry.

    Caparol is a German paint company but does not appear to be a specific product.

    Ah, French and not German. That is why we could not find it. The product is a poly vinyl acetate dispersion. I have now seen a few high PVC grounds bound in similar binders. We have a contact from Sennelier (actually Savoir Faire who represents and distributes a group of French art materials manufacturers in the states) who fields questions about these products on MITRA
