Rovene® 4489

CARBOXYLATED STYRENE-BUTADIENE EMULSION

Product Description

Rovene® 4489 is a low VOC carboxylated styrene-butadiene copolymer emulsion that has a  rm hand with excellent strength properties.

Rovene 4489 is recommended for carpet applications that require excellent strength properties. Rovene 4489 can be compounded to high solids using calcium carbonate, clays and alumina trihydrate as llers; sodium polyacrylate thickeners are commonly used to obtain the required application viscosity.

Rovene 4489 imparts good wet/dry tensile strength, and has good adhesion to a wide variety of surfaces. is adhesion contributes to the good tuft binds and excellent delaminations in carpet applications. Rovene 4489 is a low VOC containing latex that is crosslinkable with external crosslinkers.
