Celanese Launches VAE Emulsions For Nonwovens

DALLAS & SULZBACH, GERMANY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Celanese Corporation (NYSE: CE), a global technology and specialty materials company and a global leader in vinyl acetate ethylene (VAE) emulsion polymers, today announces the European region re-launch of its industry-leading line of Elite Ultra dispersions for use in nonwovens, specialty papers and other associated industries. The result is the new Vinamul® Elite 15 with firmer hand, and Vinamul® Elite 25 with softer hand for use in wipes, tabletop and hygiene applications.

The newly released products offer lower odor through a reduction in total volatile organic compounds (VOCs), higher solids content, and a potential for carbon dioxide reduction versus older generation products. Both Vinamul Elite products still feature high dry and wet tensile strength, good absorbency and are APE-surfactant free.

“In collaboration with our customers to find fresh, innovative solutions that meet their product development needs, Celanese identified a solution for higher solids in the emulsion and responded with the Vinamul Elite series,” said Peter Zeimentz, segment manager for the Celanese emulsion polymers business.

A whitepaper on the new products called “Vinamul® Elite 15 and Elite 25: Next Generation Vinyl Acetate Ethylene Copolymer Dispersions for Nonwoven Construction,” is available for download at www.celanese.com (http://info.celanese.com/next-generation-elite-bonding-technology-whitepaper-download).

These new Vinamul Elite products will be available throughout Europe, the Middle East and North Africa.
