PARTNER WITH ARCHROMA’S SPECIAL AGENTS
Our dispersions have been known and valued by customers for many years, whether in coating, spraying, foaming, lamination or impregnation.
With today’s ecological challenges in focus, our products are water-based and solvent-free*, covering a variety of base polymers and different effects. Ranging from soft to hard, from elastic to rigid, from hydrophilic to hydrophobic, impermeable to breathable, they allow tailor-made solutions for customer-specific requirements.
Our most newly developed range, the Appretan® E polymer series, is a range of ultra low formaldehyde polymer dispersions for the production of textiles that are expected to comply with the limit values of formaldehyde as defined by Oeko-Tex®2 Standard 100. Appretan® E polymer dispersions are self-crosslinking to achieve a high level of performance in technical applications.
