This series offers multiple solutions that improve fiber-to-fiber adhesion. This improved binding of fibers creates a better structure for applications such as laid or woven scrim and pre-pregs.
Manufacturers of pre-preg fabric and multilayer systems combining woven and nonwoven materials can use these grades to increase lubricity and slip, and facilitate tow spreading of fibers in technical textile production. They are also used as over-sizing to improve release, drape, and fabric processability.
This technology promotes the adhesion between fibers and polymeric matrices helping to improve various functional or mechanical properties. This increased fiber-to-matrix adhesion is beneficial to pre-preg fabric for composites and multilayer systems that combine woven and nonwoven materials.
This group of emulsions operates at elevated temperatures without degradation and can withstand more thermal cycling operations. In addition, they provide heat resistance during primary and secondary processing and impart heat resistance in end-use applications, which make them ideal for use in braided three-dimensional structures for thermal insulation.
Products in this series are designed to provide excellent wet-out and strong surface adhesion to fabrics. They impart performance benefits, including chemical resistance, water resistance, and hydrophobicity under humid conditions to fabrics, wovens, and non-wovens.
Products in this series boost ink adhesion for improved print receptivity and minimal color bleed. Fabrics that are over-printed for decoration and branding; or with identification codes where legibility is essential can benefit from these solutions.
Fabrics, nonwovens, and pre-pregs that need to be stacked or rolled without sticking together are ideal applications for these grades due to their anti-block properties, which improve interlayer release and stack-ability for finished products.
