From the fibre to the nonwoven.
Large bales of compacted milled fibres mark the start of nonwoven fibre production. The individual fibres produce an homogeneous mix which is spread out to form a fibrous web of even thickness. These webs are layered until the desired specific weight is achieved. The layers are formed into a nonwoven by a series of compacting stages. Compacting occurs mechanically and/or thermally or chemically. In needle-punching, hooked needles are pushed through the layers of fibres so that the fibres connect to one another. Thermal strengthening takes place by heating in an oven, chemical strengthening by spraying with dye or binders.
We use the following production processes for the formation of the nonwoven:
Mechanical carding process
The nonwoven is compacted mechanically and/or thermally or chemically.
Raw materials used: Polyester fibres PES (incl. bi-component fibres, polyester (PP), polyacrylonitrile (PAN), polyamide (PA), viscose (CV). In addition, oxPAN fibres and recycled fibres are used.
We manufacture material thickness of 2 – 300 mm and grammages of 100 g/m² – 4,000 g/m². Our speciality is multilayer and thick nonwovens, as well as combinations of foam and nonwoven.
We manufacture them as
prototype manufacturing by cutter for pre-series or small series
On request, our nonwovens can be laminated and padded with numerous materials and can be made self-adhesive.
