DIZZOLV ion-sensitive dispersible binder for flushable wipes

By Tim Wright | January 6, 2014

Kimberly-Clark is making their patented, ion-sensitive binder technology available for license to third parties for use in flushable products. DIZZOLV dispersible binder is an ion-sensitive chemistry that enables wet wipes to be flushable. DIZZOLV technology is a commercially proven, ion-sensitive acrylate binder that provides strength to the wipe by bonding to the basesheet in the presence of salt. After the wipe is disposed of in the wastewater stream, the salt is diluted, causing the binder to swell and the wipe to weaken, aiding flushability. Potential applications for DIZZOLV technology include perineal hygiene; moist toilet wipes; incontinence care; deodorant, intimate and feminine wipes; skin care and general purpose personal cleaning wipes; and surface care cleaning wipes.
