Singapore, October 28, 2011 – Huntsman Corporation’s Advanced Materials and Textile Effects divisions will jointly host a booth at the upcoming Filtration 2011 Conference in Chicago, USA. The increasing demand for clean air and water is drawing large numbers of professionals to the filter industry, and innovative technologies and superior technical support from the two Huntsman Divisions will be showcased at this event.

Highlights from Huntsman on display:
- Technologies that improve filter performance, increase filter longevity and enhance filter durability
- Products that are safe, effective and sustainable
- Epoxy resins, adhesives, fluorochemicals, elastomers, flame retardants and antimicrobials

Huntsman Advanced Materials is probably best known for their high-performance Araldite® epoxy resins which are renowned for their ability to deliver the ultimate in chemical and heat resistance. Through novel use of proprietary surfactant and dispersion capability, Huntsman has been able to put epoxies into water and thereby open up new application areas in non-traditional spaces, such as saturants and coatings in non-wovens and fiber sizing.  By bringing this technology to the market and combining this strength with our years of experience in textile effects, we are able to bring fast and affordable high performance solutions to our customers.

Huntsman Textile Effects’ PHOBOL® fluorochemical repellents provide superior repellency against oil and water based substances to improve filter performance, chemical and water resistance, durability and even abrasion resistance. 

FLOVAN® flame retardants provide a sustainable option for enhanced flammability protection.  A phosphorus based finish, it provides a sustainable option for users and its usage allows for lower add-on levels to improve cost effectiveness without sacrificing performance.
