Fibrillated fibers of micron order physically capture cement particles and fillers to suppress sedimentation during water dispersion, resulting in beautiful and durable surfaces.
- Cement Boards
Deterioration and collapse resistant
Interaction of urethane hydrogen bonds and Fybrel® increases chemical and mechanical strength while prolonging initial elasticity.
- Urethane foam
Thixotropic agent (viscosity modifier)
Fibrillated fibers disperse particles in paints and coating agents to prevent sagging by physical entanglement.
- Paints and pigments
By adding fibrillated fibers during the manufacture of adhesives, wettability and adhesive strength can be maintained while controlling viscosity.
By combining Fybrel® with pulp and conductive particles, fibrillated fibers complement conductive particles for uniformed dispersal.
- Conductive paper
Pore size control
By combining Fybrel® with pulp or nonwoven fibers, pore diameter of porous material can be controlled.
- Airlaid nonwovens
- Oil blotters
By adding Fybrel® during papermaking processes, heat sealing of paper becomes possible allowing thermal bonding of paper products or paper and film products.
- Paper/plastic film
- Paper/film seal
By mixing Fybrel® with pulp or cotton, thermoforming while retaining characteristics of paper or cotton is possible.
- Molded paper
- Embossed paper
- Cotton puffs
