Applications & Features
- Coated fabrics
- Conveyer belts
Vulcabond™ liquid bonding agents are used in PVC plastisols when coating onto polyester and nylon fibers to make PVC coated fabrics for the construction and transportation industries. Cotton fibers which have a rough open surface, make it easy for plastisol to penetrate and give a good mechanical adhesion. In contrast, polyester and nylon fibers are made up of bundles of smooth filaments, often in a close weave construction, which make mechanical adhesion without the use of a bonding agent ineffective – this is where Vulcabond™ products excel.
For optimal performance the Vulcabond™ products are added at the final stage of plastisol mixing. These products are manufactured in both non-phthalate and phthalate plasticizers according to individual requirements. The Valtris product range contains some of the most reliable and reputable products in the industry evolving from several decades of development and production experience.
