Americhem Expands Nonwoven Softening Technology Portfolio

Published 03/19/2019

CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio (March 19, 2019) – Americhem, a globally recognized designer and manufacturer of custom color masterbatch, functional additives, engineered compounds and performance technologies, is expanding its additive softening technology platform. Its mBraceTM products provide an enhanced soft feel while offering efficient processing with extremely low volatiles. Most of the mBraceTM line can be used as a single additive package or combined with color for an all- encompassing concentrate solution.

The mBraceTM line of masterbatches is multifaceted and engineered to offer brand owners customizability to their desired softness level in polypropylene applications. Americhem continues to broaden its formulations for nonwovens; improving softness and drapability.

“Hygienic and medical drapery manufacturers have been looking for a cost-efficient way to bring a silky, soft touch to their products. The end user prefers a soft feel directly on their skin as opposed to an article that is stiff, noisy, and feels like plastic. You will feel the difference in the product with our mBraceTM,” commented Robert Baldy, Market Manager at Americhem.

Americhem will be highlighting this technology at the Idea19 Show in Miami FL, booth #1732.
