BASF proposed to divest its DMA3 production assets at Ludwigshafen (Germany), Ciba's entire EEA synthetic dry strength agent business and Ciba's global bismuth vanadate business; regarding indanthrone blue, Ciba's know-how of the finishing line, all supply contracts, customer lists and inventories; Ciba's SA business (and the PVAc - polyvinyl acetate and AA - all acrylate businesses) in the EEA at Kaipiainen (Finland); for HALS, Ciba's entire Chimassorb 119 FL business, including the Chimassorb 119 FL production assets, relevant know-how and customer lists; and for UV filters, BASF committed to conclude a UV filter licence agreement, giving third-party access to the technology behind Tinosorb S (a UV filter patented and currently solely produced by Ciba).
The specific product segments analyzed are Binders, Defoamers, Sizes, Wet-Strength Agents, Dry Strength Additives, Pitch and Deposit Control Agents, Retention & Drainage Aids, and Biocides.
The data also suggest that the PU adhesive recipe or formula should be modified to have both high dry strength and high wood failure.
Very few or no melt bonds are provided between the melt-blown microfibers and the particulate super-absorbent material, is such that the storage layer has a wet-strength of at least 40% of the dry strength, as measured in the machine direction.
SAPC will be the exclusive supplier of PPD's internal sizing, wet and dry strength, tissue and towel, pulp mill and process chemical portfolios.
The sand mixture then was tested for moisture, compactibility, green strength, dry strength, friability, cone jolt, permeability and specimen weight using AFS sand test guidelines.
These researchers hypothesised that (i) clay fiocculation and the subsequent decrease in the number of contact points between particles reduce soil dry strength, and (ii) bonding of flocs at contact points is expected to increase soil strength.
For adhesive performance, not only are dry strength values important, but also wet strength is important for testing the durability of the bond, particularly because wood moisture contents vary considerably depending upon the exposure conditions (Frihart 2009).
Features and benefits of the new dispersible wipe include excellent dry strength, high absorbency, cloth-like feel, surface cleaning and prevention of cross contamination.
