For anyone hoping to achieve the best results in fibre bonding needs to have the correct combination of additives and bonding agents. Defoamers such as FoamStar® assist greatly in achieving tailor-made feature profiles, and the same also goes for various hydropalate types as wetting agents. Other options include dispersing agents and rheology auxiliaries, such as the Dispex® and Rheovis® types distributed by BTC. Both additives enable a diluting effect allowing a particularly low viscosity to be achieved
For optimum processing of non-woven fabrics, it is critical to have just the right combination of additives and dispersions. At Hofer Vliesstofftage, from 5th to 6th of November, BTC and BASF SE will demonstrate together their expertise in the area of polymer dispersion for fibre bonding. BTC's innovative and smart solutions in the field of non-woven fabrics are aimed at making their customers' products more efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly. The performance will be accompanied by a presentation from BASF expert Dr. Bernd Hövel on Thursday morning on the right selection of additives and binding agents for fibre binding.
The Hofer Vliesstofftage are the key meeting points for the industry when it comes to the current state of technology in relation to non-woven fabrics. Expert panels discuss new developments, refinement methods and production processes. It's all about the scientific exchange as well as the exchange of experience between industry and research. Last year, it was not only the conference breaking a new record with more than 400 visitors, but also the trade exhibition with 72 presentation stands. Just as in the previous year, non-woven fabric production in Europe has increased once again, this time by 1.9 percent. The organizers of the Vliesstofftage emphasise that the German textile industry in particular represents “the highest standard of quality” and is characterised by “individual initiative and a wealth of ideas”.
The ecologically compatible reactive resins of the Acrodur® brand still constitute a core component in the area of dispersion for fibre bonding. The water-based acrylic resin is an environmentally compatible single-component system with extraordinary bonding properties. In contrast to classic reactive resins, the only by-product of the curing process is water. Acrodur® is therefore a good example of BTC's objective to present a portfolio of ecofriendly, efficient and cost-effective solutions.
