, the Binders and Additives Committee of the TAPPI NET (Nonwovens Engineers and Technologists) Division would like to invite you to participate in a free webinar. The webinar is designed as an introduction to butadiene as a monomer used as a component part to generate emulsion polymer binders and will cover four areas:
  • Learning about butadine as a monomer - including from where we obtain this material and the markets to which it is used
  • Investigating how butadiene is polymerized - including homopolymer properties, the most commonly used comonomers, and the benefits butadiene provides
  • Reviewing the markets into which butadiene containing emulsion copolymers are used
  • Understanding the contribution butadiene containing emulsion copolymer make to nonwoven applications - including choosing a latex, the benefits and versatility of butadiene copolymers, standard formulations and application techniques, interaction with aminoplasts and novalacs, and formaldehyde free binder systems using butadiene.

The presentation will focus on points one through three for the first half of the presentation with the remainder dedicated to the consideration of butadiene based latex binders for nonwovens.
