Copolymer from National Starch Strengthens Nonwoven Wipes

November 11, 2005

Executives at Bridgewater, NJ-based National Starch & Chemical said the company’s Dur-O-Set Elite Ultra copolymer generates nonwoven wet wipes with nearly 60% higher wet strength than when using conventional EVA technology.

Trials involving manufacturing 60-gram-per-square-meter, 1-millimiter, air-laid fabrics, performed in Horsens, Denmark, verified the higher wet strength results. More info: (800) 797-4992; Fax: (609) 409-5699; E-mail:; Website:
