A New Era of Softness
These next generation mBrace™ softness additive masterbatches are multifaceted and represent a significant advancement over existing offerings. The new line features enhanced haptics, offering a wide range of textures that include silky, super silky, cottony, and slick sensations. This achievement delivers the perfect balance between drape and stiffness, providing a silky texture, enhancing smoothness, promoting dryness and coolness, and imparting a cotton-like feel. Americhem’s commitment to innovation ensures that customers can precisely tailor the softness attributes tailoring to the desired coefficient of friction in their end products. Moreover, these masterbatches offer a cost effective solution, with reduced volatility and enhanced thermal stability at high processing temperatures of ≥ 300oC, outperforming traditional slip agents commonly used in the industry (See Figure 1). This leads to improved processing efficiency by avoiding plate-out-related issues and ensures preservation of the active ingredient throughout the manufacturing process.
Innovation Driven by Market Trends
Consumer preferences are evolving rapidly, and Americhem's innovative product line empowers customers to meet these changes. Backed by research to meet a growing desire for different levels of softness, Americhem’s technologies seamlessly integrate with other functionalities to enhance fabric performance. Whether pairing softness with hydrophilic/antistatic properties, integrating antimicrobial attributes for odor resistance, or offering hydrophobic capabilities for moisture repellency, the mBrace™ product line can be customized to meet your needs.
