Consolidation 

Our wide range of waterborne dispersions, built on thermoplastic, self-crosslinking and thermosetting polymers, will help you optimize performance and value in consolidation processes. Our polymers are APEO and solvent free.  The range of Formaldehyde free1 polymers can help you meet sustainable requirements and are ideal for consolidation applications.

 

Consolidation benefits :

  • Heat sealable with excellent fiber bonding properties
  • Soft to Medium handle
  • High Hydrophobic to hydrophilic range
  • Alkali resistance
  • Thermo-dimensional stability
  • Good balance between tensile strength and resiliency
