BASF to present new product developments at INDEX

Sustainability will be BASF's central topic at the INDEX 2008 in Geneva. Between April 15 and 18 the company will present new product developments and applications for fiber bonding and superabsorbents. BASF is again addressing its customers in the hygiene and nonwovens industry and all companies that need environmentally friendly fiber bonding agents and liquid absorbing polymers for their products.

Dispersions for fiber bonding – innovations for nonwovens:
This year, an exhibition focus for binders for fiber bonding will be the eco-friendly reactive resins of the Acrodur brand which can be used as binders for natural fiber moldings, glass and synthetic fiber nonwovens.

The latest application example that proofs the exceptional capabilities of this product class, are the highly environmentally friendly cork floorings of Portuguese group Amorim, the world's biggest producer of cork products. These products have a higher eco-efficiency than compatible vinyl tiles and floating wood parquet, as shown by a recent Eco-Efficiency Analysis carried out by BASF in collaboration with Amorim.

Acronal brand acrylate dispersions are an additional focus. Along with the established applications for polyester and glass nonwovens, they can also be used to bind cellulosic substrates. Cellulosic filters produced with Acronal e.g. display low water absorption, high wet and internal bond strength and are particularly robust.

Binders for fibrous materials in the forms of dispersions or reactive resins have become an indispensable feature of everyday life. They bind numerous products that simplify our lives in a wide variety of ways. As nonwoven fabrics they make roofing membranes tearproof and ductile, and kitchen towels highly absorbent. Grit and paper are made into abrasive materials and cellulose substrates into filter paper for air or oil filters. Besides these technical applications, binders are also used in consumer nonwovens, for example to manufacture kitchen towels and nonwoven materials for diapers.
