Published on 2021-04-26. Author : SpecialChem

LANXESS_Kallo_Glass_fiber_plantLANXESS expands its unique Trixene Aqua range of water-based blocked isocyanate dispersions. The product family now includes new grades, specifically designed to expand the application areas and meet more demanding customer needs.

The New Adhesion Promoter

Trixene Aqua BI 120 expands the outstanding performance as adhesion promoter of Aqua BI 220, enabling formulators to use it in a wide pH range and further enhancing soft handle. This is beneficial in textile processing where the products can be used e.g. for hydrophobic resins applied in the water proof treatment, for breathable fabrics, and for silk screen printing to improve the prints’ resistance to wash cycles.

Crosslinker Developed by Fiber Sizing Tech.

Trixene Aqua BI 202 is born by LANXESS’ continuous focus on fiber sizing technologies, whereas the formulator can benefit from its combination with Witcobond polyurethane dispersions. The use of Aqua BI 202 can improve strength of the chopped glass strands and impart composites higher mechanical, flexural properties, as well as improve impact resistance.

Glass fibers are used for the formulation of high-performance engineering plastics, e.g. polyamide- and PBT-based composites. Such glass-fiber reinforced plastics are indispensable in the automotive and civil engineering industries, among others.
