Automotive textile applications include tufted carpet, molded nonwoven fabric, hoodliner, and stiffener panels. When used in a formulation, emulsion polymers impart strength, tuft bind, abrasion resistance, and moldability. Styrene-butadiene and Styrene-acrylic emulsion polymers can be used to provide excellent water, oil and solvent resistance to the textile. MCP also offers high glass transition emulsion polymers for moldable nonwoven fabrics that are used for trunk liners and underhood applications.
Rovene 6065 is a styrene-acrylic polymer that is a tough, durable nonwoven binder intended to provide improved stiffness and strength.
Rovene 6066 is a styrene-acrylic emulsion polymer specifically designed for formulation of binder systems for moldable and self supporting composites.
