Polymer emulsions play an important part in the manufacture of technical papers. They are used to impart strength, tear resistance and durability. Certain technical papers applications require stringent performance characteristics. For example, jean labels require wash durability while a gasket used in engine components requires chemical resistance and controlled swell. Contact a MCP representative to discuss specific application requirements.
Rovene 4602 is a soft carboxylated styrene-butadiene emulsion with excellent strength properties. It is designed for use in wet end paper applications where superior heat stability in the final product is required.
