AGC Chemicals Americas Releases AsahiGuard AG-E600 Repellent For Nonwovens

Exton, Pa.-based fluoropolymer resin and specialty chemicals company AGC Chemicals Americas Inc. has released AsahiGuard AG-E600, a perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA)-free water-, oil- and alcohol-repellent finish for high-performance nonwovens used in medical, industrial and consumer applications.

The finish is based on a patented short-chain C6 fluorinated polymer technology that offers a reduced environmental impact compared to long-chain C8 chemistries. AGC reports that AsahiGuard AG-E600 is nonflammable and is compatible with auxiliaries from preceding production steps.
