Hydrophobic Concentrates

November 30, -0001

Polyvel, Hammonton, NJ, has introduced the VH103-S and VH103-M Hydrophobic Concentrates, which are melt additives for polypropylene nonwoven processes. VH103-S and VH103-M concentrates impart alcohol repellency to nonwoven polypropylene fabrics, making them useful in medical, hygiene and construction applications.  The concentrates are designed for uniform melt mixing in fiber extruders and are more cost effective than topically applied repellents.  Telephone: 609-567-0080; Fax: 609-567-9522; Email:; Web: www.­­­­­
