Resin For Spunbond Nonwovens

January 9, 2006

Basell has developed a new resin, Moplen RP1669, which adds a soft touch and cloth-like feel to nonwoven materials for hygienic, personal care and medical apparel applications. Moplen RP1669 is an innovative copolymer based on Basell’s state-of-the-art Spherizone polypropylene technology.

Due to its fluidity (MFR 25) and narrow molecular mass distribution, Moplen RP1669 resin can allow for the production of fine denier titre combined with excellent spinnability at standard productivity levels on all spunbond technologies. The material’s nonwoven mechanical properties are comparable to a standard homopolymer grade.
