Celanese to Present Vinyl-based Emulsions at Index 11

Published on 2011-04-14. Author : SpecialChem

Dallas -- Celanese, a global leader in vinyl-based emulsion technology, will present its comprehensive portfolio of products for chemically bonded nonwovens at Index, the world's leading nonwovens exhibition in Geneva, Switzerland. Company representatives will discuss options in emulsion technology to help the nonwoven producer negotiate today's demanding manufacturing environment at stand #2351.

Celanese's waterborne emulsions act as the primary bonding agent and also offer functional properties for airlaid, drylaid carded, wetlaid nonwovens and paper. "In today's challenging manufacturing environment with raw material price escalation and consumer demand for high performance goods, nonwoven producers and their customers in the value chain are requesting alternatives to traditional chemistries such as SBR and pure acrylics. With vinyl chemistries such as vinyl acetate/ethylene (VAE), we can offer cost effective value and high performance to chemically bonded nonwovens from disposables through durables," said Peter Zeimentz, marketing segment manager.

Celanese's product line is anchored by the Dur-O-Set® Elite Ultra family of emulsions. The flagship product, Elite Ultra, is known for its high wet strength and cost in use advantages and is a leader in nonwoven wipes. Elite Ultra Soft offers significant absorption in addition to its soft hand feel and high wet strength. Elite 20 and its complimentary Acrylate based alternative - Vinacryl® 4333 - offer the right blend of strength and fluid management properties for use in medical nonwovens.
