Aricel PC-6A


Aricel PC-6A is a liquid, partially methylated melamine resin.


Aricel PC-6A is a waterborne resin that can be used to crosslink hydroxy-functional polymers in formulations used for nonwoven binders and textile finishing. In most cases, Aricel PC-6A provides adequate cure response without the addition of a strong acid catalyst. To promote cure at lower bake temperatures, the use of a blocked acid catalyst is recommended.


In nonwovens and textile finishing, Aricel PC-6A yields firm, resilient finishes that are highly abrasion and solvent resistant. Aricel PC-6A can also be employed to improve the wash and crock fastness of textile printing applications. Additionally, Aricel PC-6A offers good formulated stability and adequate cure response at temperatures below 160 °C.
