Archroma, a specialty chemicals company, has launched Appretan NTR, a break-through water-based textile coating binder based on renewable natural ingredients. Archroma’s businesses, brand & performance textile specialties; packaging & paper specialties; and coatings, adhesives, sealants, deliver performance and colour solutions to meet customers’ needs.

The new product, Appretan NTR, a water-based textile coating binder developed for applications such as tea bags, coffee filters or capsules, uses a natural, renewable raw material that is widely available near the production site of Lamotte, France, where Appretan NTR is produced, the company said in a press release.

The new binder was developed following these principles. About one third of Appretan NTR’s active content is based on a polysaccharide from renewable raw materials, allowing a reduction in the use of fossil fuel based resources without compromising performance. Appretan NTR does not contain biocides or alkylphenolethoxylates (APEO) and does not release formaldehyde. It has been designed so that the optimum properties can be achieved without additional curing step at high temperature compared to the industry standard process, thus helping to save significant energy for textile producers and the planet.

Initially developed for the chemical bonding of non-wovens for technical textiles and coating, Appretan NTR displays excellent film forming properties and very hydrophobic behaviour. In addition, the unique chemistry of this binder makes it resistant to water, mild solvents, oil and fat, and it also provides an increase in dry and wet tensile strength. Appretan NTR can also be applied in combination with other crosslinkers.

Using Archroma’s best-in-class knowledge of food contact regulations, Appretan NTR has also been tailored for customers who operate in the highly regulated, growing market of hot liquid filtration. Appretan NTR complies with global food contact standards, such as FDA 176 -170, BfR XXXVI and BfR XXXVI/1, which certifies the suitability of the end-product even in conditions such as immersion in boiling water.

“Appretan NTR represents a break-through in the area of coating binders, demonstrating again that it is possible to challenge the status quo and to create chemistry that is gentler on the environment. We are proud to bring to the industry a new generation of binders that relies more on the natural and safe materials that surround us and less on classical petroleum based raw materials, helping to minimise our dependence on fossil fuel resources,” Damien Corpet, global head of product and technology innovation, binders and reactive resins, at Archroma said.
