Special Nonwovens that Protect

Our nonwovens offer the right solution for the most demanding requirements. They come in a wide variety of compositions: sometimes particularly soft to provide the necessary comfort, sometimes particularly stretch-resistant to withstand greater loads, they can be reinforced with scrim to prevent damage, or designed to be flame resistant to meet certain protective standards.

Thanks to our three-dimensional fiber design and Norafin's spunlacing, our materials show a distinctive dimensional stability in all directions. For special areas and applications, we also offer traditional needlepunch capabilities.
