VINNAPAS®: Nonwovens & Technical textiles

Modern Binders for Nonwovens and Technical Textiles

WACKER offers you a versatile and technically mature portfolio of polymer binders that is continually being expanded. The latest examples are efficient low-odor VINNAPAS® VAE copolymer dispersions that are stabilized without the use of APE-based surfactants. The program for technical nonwovens and textiles is rounded off with VINNOL® (E-VC) copolymer dispersions (see those products).

Effects:

VINNAPAS® VAE dispersions give nonwovens from WACKER some important properties:

  • Excellent wet and dry strength
  • Pleasant feel
  • Good shape-retention
  • High absorbency
  • Solvent resistance
  • Excellent heat-sealability

In technical textiles, VINNOL® E-VC dispersions impart primarily the following characteristics:

  • Excellent flame-retardancy
  • Dimensional stability
  • Abrasion and wash-resistance
  • Excellent heat-sealability
  • Tear strength
  • Stiffness and pleatability

Main applications:

  • Tableware (Napkins)
  • Wet wipes
  • Feminine hygiene articles
  • Technical nonwovens and textiles (air filters for ventilation systems and the automotive sector.)

Processing:

VINNAPAS® dispersions can be easily and effectively applied by all conventional meth-ods:

  • Impregnation
  • Spraying
  • Foaming
