Non-woven fabrics are randomly oriented fibres, bonded together chemically, mechanically or by other means but without using a weaving technique. In the production of nonwoven fabrics, seizing agents are being used, where Tylose® serves as a rheology modifier. Tylose® is also used to prevent settling in dispersions of wet laid processes.
Tylose® H grades with a high viscosity level are recommended for this application.
Tylose® has numerous advantageous properties such as thickening, water retention, adhesion, binding, plasticising, film forming, gelling and surface tension modifying. Utilising these properties makes Tylose® a highly suitable additive for many applications.
