Polymers for Nonwovens


Synthetic latex polymers are used in the production of nonwovens to achieve the chemical bonding of the fibrous structure. They are used to overcome the limitations of nonwovens in properties such as structure, stiffness, strength, and dry cleaning capability. Synthetic latex polymers are selected on the basis of cost and performance characteristics like strength, durability, and compatibility with additives.

MCP makes binders suitable for application by froth, spray and saturation processes, with properties optimized for desired material penetration. Other polymer characteristics can be tailored to provide the required level of hand or flexibility. Acrylic polymer emulsions maintain whiteness upon UV exposure, while carboxylated styrene-butadiene binders are tough, yet flexible and provide outstanding wet strength.
