BASF claims its new low-emission Acrodur Power 2750 X binder, helps produce cost-efficient lightweight composites with integrated functions and a higher share of natural fibres. The product is designed for the production of natural fibre composites for automotive lightweight applications, such as interior car door panels or shelves.
The company says this provides a low-emission alternative to formaldehyde-based reactive resins and gives natural fibre composites high mechanical stability. It also offers thermoplastic processability. Environmentally-friendly this water-based binder does not release any organic substances during processing nor as part of the final product.
