Clariant's Textile Business, the leading supplier of chemicals and dyes for the textile industry, is taking visitors to its Techtextil 2009 stand on a voyage of discovery. The company is launching new products that give the technological and ecological edge to technical textiles customers. Fast-moving sectors such as mobiltech, buildtech/hometech and medtech/ indutech are the focus and customers will benefit from solution-based and sector-specific offerings.

The new products build on Clariant's broad portfolio and strong chemical expertise which provides customers with a head start in new product development. Clariant's tailor-made approach to market trends and in-depth understanding of customer needs means faster product development and shorter time to market. Highlights among the various products being introduced at Techtextil 2009 include: Mobiltech Appretan E4950 liquid - the latest addition to Clariant's Appretan E Series of low emissive, ultra-low formaldehyde dispersions, developed in line with its commitment to provide ecologically-friendly solutions to the market.

Appretan E4950 liq is a hard, anionic acrylate dispersion with ultra-low formaldehyde levels of < 16="" ppm="" on="" the="" substrate="" according="" to="" japan="" law="" 112.="" the="" polymer="" dispersion's="" thermoset="" properties="" and="" its="" high="" hot="" tensile="" strength="" allow="" mechanical="" performance="" to="" be="" maintained="" even="" at="" elevated="" temperatures,="" which="" qualifies="" it="" as="" an="" environmentally-friendly="" alternative="" to="" melamine="" or="" phenol="" resins="" commonly="" used="" in="" the="" industry.="" in="" addition,="" textiles="" treated="" with="" appretan="" e4950="" liq="" achieve="" good="" resistance="" to="" water,="" solvents="" and="" chemicals="" resulting="" in="" high-performance="" materials="" e.g.="" for="" molding="">

This combination of high performance and ultra-low formaldehyde levels is a novel achievement for this particular industry. Buildtech/Hometech With Sanitized+ TH 27-24 liquid Clariant launches a new high concentrated multiple effect agent that keeps textiles permanently fresh. In combination with selected additives Sanitized TH 27-24 liq provides durable hygiene function and material protection against bacteria, odor, mildew and dust mites.

It can be used for mattresses, bedding, carpets and for home textiles such as furniture, and wall coverings, but also for technical textiles used by the construction industry, or outdoor fabrics as awnings and garden furnishings. Fabrics treated with Sanitized are dermatological safe. Sanitized complies with key EU and UK ecological standards for product safety including UK Allergy, Oeko-Tex Standard 100, classes I-IV, and bluesign.

Appretan E6870 liquid makes its debut at Techtextil as another ultra-low formaldehyde dispersion which offers excellent binding properties combined with excellent water and solvent/chemical resistance for nonwoven materials. Application examples include glass veils used in building panels in the construction sector. Indutech/Medtech Clariant's state-of-the-art, new PFOA-free (below limit of detection) barrier function repellent for nonwovens – Nuva N2116 liquid – belongs to a new generation of novel ecological, low emissive fluorocarbons with a cross-over of performance and cost saving benefits. It is ideal for medical nonwoven which need to provide a high barrier profile, resistance to alcohol and solvents, as well as oil repellency.
