Hand-Modifier

Application Description

“Hand” or handle refers to the feel of the fabric, which is a critical property in most textile applications. Hand is closely related to the Tg of the emulsion polymer that is used in the formulated compound. A lower Tg tends to impart a softer feel as well as improving drape behavior while a high Tg emulsion will impart stiffness. MCP can offer products that will modify by stiffening or softening the textile material. When appropriate, a unique or custom polymer can be developed to provide very specific properties.
