LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY: BASF presents a new aqueous acrylic binder for nonwovens meeting high thermo-dimensional stability requirements, Acronal 2434. The binder is particularly suitable for nonwovens that are used for construction and abrasive applications.
The innovative binder complements the comprehensive BASF product portfolio of dispersions and resins.
Dimensionally stable nonwovens
With Acronal 2434, BASF offers a self-cross-linking acrylic dispersion that lends nonwovens that are exposed to thermal strain high levels of mechanical stability. The binder is particularly suitable for nonwovens made of synthetic fibres such as polyester. The newly developed product is compatible with other cross-linking systems such as melamine and urea resins. In addition, it can easily be applied to regular foulard systems.
“Acronal 2434 is another high-performance binder that we offer to our customers in the nonwovens industry,” said Jurgen Pfister, vice president dispersions for adhesives & fibre bonding Europe.
“Primarily when it comes to nonwovens that are exposed to high levels of thermal and mechanical strain, our novel acrylic dispersion delivers outstanding effects. With this innovative and sustainable binder, we have found a solution that is targeted towards the needs of our customers. This way, we can help our customers to be successful,” added Pfister.
