CINCINNATI, Ohio — April 25, 2023 — Michelman, a global developer and manufacturer of environmentally friendly advanced materials for industry, will spotlight its formulated surface treatment capabilities at Techtextil North America 2023. With its Unyte® brand of water-based emulsions as the foundation, Michelman develops formulated systems designed to meet specific application requirements.
Unyte is a versatile family of water-based technologies used by technical textile and pre-preg fabric manufacturers to improve processing and performance attributes such as adhesion, binding, chemical and heat resistance, water resistance, water repellency, print receptivity, and anti-blocking. This suite of products is sourced and manufactured in the USA and is suitable for woven and nonwoven materials. It can be used in industries and applications including military, ballistics, medical, automotive, construction fabrics, and upholstery.
Steve Bassetti, Michelman’s director, Global Marketing, noted: “We offer a variety of Unyte formulations, and each can be tailored to meet specific requirements. For example, we regularly work with technical textile manufacturers who are trying to eliminate Substances of Concern (SoCs) such as formaldehyde, fluorine, and PFAS from their products without sacrificing performance and processability. Formulations are tested, retested, and customized using various raw materials to help them reach their ultimate goals. As a company whose mission is Innovating a Sustainable Future, we take pride in helping our customers eliminate these substances. It’s beneficial to all when we can help customers reduce their environmental impact.”
Michelman will exhibit in booth #2411 at Techtextil North America 2023. The show will take place May 10-12, 2023, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
