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.
Benefits of Acronal® 2434
- Particularly suitable for nonwovens made of synthetic fibers such as polyester
- Compatible with other cross-linking systems such as melamine and urea resins
- Can easily be applied with regular foulard systems
Jürgen Pfister, Vice President Dispersions for Adhesives & Fiber Bonding Europe said, “Acronal 2434
is another high-performance binder that we offer to our customers in the nonwovens industry. 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.”
The innovative binder complements the comprehensive BASF product portfolio of dispersions and resins, which is going to be presented at booth 2427 at the Index fair in Geneva on April 4 to 7, 2017.
