Sewing a nonwoven polypropylene fabric to our nonwovens.
Finishing treatment given to the surface of the nonwoven fabric that gives it a smooth appearance.
Compacting the fiber to give a nonwoven a desired thickness.
Fibre clusters are a ball-shaped material, generally used as cushion and sofa backrest filling among many other applications.
Crimp refers to waves or bends in the fibre, per unit length. It gives cohesion and volume to the fiber and facilitates carding.
Decitex (dtex) is a unit that determines the proportion of fibers, that is, the weight (in grams), of 1000m of thread or filament.
An elongated material that can be spun into wires, lines or ropes or disposed in layers. It is a polymer that serves as raw material to manufacture paper, felt or nonwoven fabrics.
- Siliconized fibres
Fibres that have a silicone coating, giving sliding properties to nonwovens. Silicone enhances the touch and comfort of nonwoven fabrics.
- Thermobonding fibre
Thermobonding or bicomponent fibre acts as a binder, allowing the nonwoven tissue to stay connected once it is carded. It is manufactured from two polyesters with different melting points - 110ºC and 230ºC. The outside melts at a lower temperature than the core, allowing the fiber to connect to each other.
Chemical compound formed by macromolecules.
The section is the interior or profile of a fibre filament. Nonwoven fabrics can have solid or hollow sections.
Nonwovens are veils composed of interlocked or bonded fibers.
