The TAPPI NET division continues their webinar series with two presentations: Protective Textiles and Crosslinking Resin Chemistry for Nonwoven and Paper Applications
TAPPINET
The Binders & Additives Committee presents Crosslinking Resin Chemistry for Nonwoven & Paper Applications on August 19 at 12 p.m. EST hosted by John Jacquin New Business Development Manager at Ineos Melamines. This presentation will focus on the chemistry of thermoset resin crosslinkers used in nonwoven and paper applications. In particular, amino resins, including urea-formaldehyde and melamine-formaldehyde resins, as well as phenol-formaldehyde resins will be discussed. The key attributes of crosslinking the latex resin will be reviewed. The general advantages and disadvantages of the thermoset systems with respect to binding and coating applications will be compared.

The second webinar, Protective Textiles, will be presented by Dr. Seshadri Ramkumar of Texas Tech University on Friday, September 5 at noon EST. Protective textiles is an important category within technical textiles. This sector is a growth industry even in developed economies and is R&D intensive. The webinar will provide a basic understanding of the use of fibrous materials as protective materials. Recent developments in this field such as nonwoven based defense PPE and decontamination wipes will be discussed. In addition to protection, the need for comfort for users emphasizes the use of lightweight nonwovens in developing protective textiles.

The Nonwovens Division offers these webinars free of charge to give the audience a glimpse of the activities that take place within the division committees and to preview some exciting content available at the NETInc (Innovative Nonwovens Conference) each spring. For more details about TAPPI and the nonwovens division visit www.tappi.org.
