Formaldehyde-free binders

Green success stories

In addition to bio-based raw materials, we have addressed the second major market need: formaldehyde-free binders for nonwoven applications. We have formaldehyde free product families that deliver excellent properties and we are looking to expand the scope of these green success stories.

Commitment to R&D excellence

For Nonwoven & Specialties, the introduction of formaldehyde-free binders represents yet another area where diligent research has yielded great results – and it is but one recent example of our commitment to R&D excellence.
