Mallard Creek Polymers introduces acrylic polymer emulsions and natural/synthetic hybrids for nonwovens applications

June 28, 2013

Mallard Creek Polymers, Inc. (MCP) continues to develop its product line of acrylic polymer emulsions to meet market demands. Also, the company has introduced a new line of natural/synthetic hybrids to align with market sustainability initiatives. Nonwoven manufacturers continue to seek binders that can help in the design of their new products.

Mallard Creek Polymers has recently commercialized Rovene 6014, Rovene 6015 and Rovene 6065 to complement its line of acrylic polymer emulsions, styrene-acrylic latexes, and styrene-butadiene products. The company says these products demonstrate MCP’s ability to cross-pollinate technology from other markets and to customize products to meet single user requirements. MCP continues to expand the portfolio of products, aggressively pursuing nitrile and vinyl acetate-based chemistry while introducing these acrylic/styrene-acrylics.

The company says it understands that nonwoven manufacturers prefer to work with ‘one-stop shops’ when seeking solutions to their product development needs. The R&D organization of the company is able to assist clients in cross-linking chemistry, product application, and nonwoven testing to facilitate application work and commercialization.

These new products and most of the company’s key products are highlighted in the new Latex Products for Nonwovens selection guide. This guide describes products available for nonwovens, including formaldehyde-free systems and self-crosslinking products. As manufacturers seek innovation in articles that use adhesive binders, MCP’s approach to developing its acrylic polymer emulsions ‘one customer at a time’ should fit well with the changing demands in the market. Details on these products and others can be obtained from the Technical Data Sheets and in the Nonwovens Selection Guides. For more information, visit
