Americhem Europe will introduce a new softening additive, containing hydrophilic properties under the company's Mbrace product line at ITMA 2015 in hall 8, stand F 105.

A press release stated that the product is a hydrophilic softening technology that can be used as a stand-alone masterbatch or can be combined with colour and other additives to provide a cost-effective, multi-attribute masterbatch.

“This new Mbrace product was developed specifically with the European customer in mind,” Michael Frisch, Americhem's technical director for EMEA said.

“It is fully REACH compliant and offers breakthrough hydrophilic properties that impart a softening effect on nonwovens products,” Robert Laurent, product designer (Films and Nonwovens) at Americhem added.

According to Americhem, the Mbrace hydrophilic softener is customisable, allowing nonwovens producers to set their desired softness levels.

It further added that it is ideal for any nonwoven application where softness and hydrophilicity are desired, including health and hygiene products, apparel, medical products, battings and backings, packaging and upholstery.

Mbrace is part of Americhem's larger Nvision line of masterbatches for nonwovens, featuring higher dispersion quality, unmatched color control, lower pack pressure rise and the virtual elimination of die face buildup. (AR)
