Simacryl EPS-02 is recommended in particular for the production of toe puff fabrics for shoes and boots, because it yields a coherent film only at high temperatures. The textile material impregnated with Simacryl EPS-02 is still soft and flexible after drying at 100-140 °C .The toe puffs punched out of this material have to be treated with a suitable solvent, eg. Acetone, ethyl acetate, methylene chloride, toluene, or xylene. The solvent swells the polymer particles to such degree that they form a coherent film on evaporation of the solvent.
It is recommended to store Simacryl® EPS-02 in sealed packages and keep it above 5°C to protect it from freezing.
Simacryl EPS-02 is an aqueous dispersion of a styrene-type polymer with a colourless,transparent and tack free film. Simacryl EPS-02 is readily compatible with most anionic and nonionic dispersions. It is also readily compatible with chalk, kaolin and titanium dioxide which should be pasted with water and ground before incorporated.
