Rovene 4170 is a self-crosslinking, carboxylated styrene-butadiene emulsion that has a medium- firm hand with outstanding strength properties. This binder is especially suited for various textile and coating applications where flexibility with toughness and water resistance are required. It also accepts high filler loads of calcium carbonate, clays and alumina trihydrate and still retains excellent tensile strength.
Rovene 4170 is further crosslinkable with external crosslinking agents which will improve solvent resistance of treated substrates.
The hydrophobic nature of Rovene 4170 makes it useful as a primary binder for industrial and household floor care and scrub pads as well as for bonding wet wipes, industrial wipes and filters.
