Protection in challenging situations

Norafin supplies the industry with highly engineered and functional nonwovens, which are a reliable protection for humans, animals, and objects against heat and flame exposure.

We meet this demand with products constructed using inherently flame resistant protection. Protection will not stop by repeated wear and laundering.

Each application area of our Norafin Protective Line has a certain requirement. Special norms and industry standards whose compliance are an essential the use of our nonwovens in the final product. By modifying one or more parameters, materials can be exactly adapted to the customers’ specifications.

Fibers & Fiber Blends

We use high-quality, advanced technical fibers and fiber blends within our nonwovens. These include meta- and para-aramids, polyimide amides, UHMW-PE, or oxidized polyacrylonitrile.

Process Technology & Weight

Our two process technologies, spunlacing and needlepunching, enable us to offer our customers products with a wide spectrum of weights, from 30 g/m² to 800 g/m².

Especially in the field of protective clothing, we can produce lightweight, high-quality materials that provide a high level of comfort & protection.

Structures

Our Norafin 3D PERFORMANCE® material, with its embossed structure, provides improved insulation and increased comfort.

Other possible structures are flat, fine, coarse as well as extra-coarse apertured.

Multilayer Nonwoven Constructions

Multilayered material constructions allow different functions to be combined in one textile. In this process, two nonwovens with different properties are combined into a firmly bonded special textile using spunlace technology. The two functional layers can differ not only in terms of their structure or raw material, two-color variants are also possible.

Colors

We can produce our materials in different colors upon customer request.

Wash Resistance

Norafin KOMANDA® nonwovens can withstand many industrial washings, making them durable and sustainable.

The result is high-quality materials that meet Market and Industry demands for a lightweight, reusable, strong, and breathable technical textile, especially in the field of heat and flame protective clothing.

Customized Cutting and Packing

Norafin's line of protective nonwovens can come in roll widths from 0.1 m to 2.4 m max.

Our nonwovens can also be easily processed in the subsequent finishing process.
