Advanced Sulfopolyesters

November 30, -0001

Kingsport, TN-based Eastman Chemical Company has introduced Eastman AQ Polymers, advanced, high-performance water-dispersible sulfopolyesters for use in nonwoven hygiene app­lications.     Eastman AQ polymers enable the production of environmentally friendly nonwoven materials that readily disperse in water but do not break down upon contact with body fluids.

The ionic formulation of the polymers allows the sulfopolyesters to begin breaking down in water-rich and compost environments without dispersing in body fluids, a feature that allows the material to perform in hygiene applications while remaining recyclable.
