Special Nonwovens that Protect Everything

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, sometimes reinforced with scrim to prevent damage, or sometimes fire-resistant to meet certain guidelines.

Thanks to our three-dimensional fiber design and subsequent spunlacing, our materials show a distinctive dimensional stability in all directions. For special areas and applications, we also offer traditional needle bonding.

Outstanding Performance Features of our Nonwovens

  • improved insulation and high resistance to heat
  • high-quality heat protection for single and multi-layer product solutions
  • industrially washable
  • isotropic fiber orientation for dimensional stability in all directions
  • durable and long-lasting product solutions

  • fire-blocking and flame-retardant properties according to various industry standards such as EN 45545-2, FAR 25-853, or 16 CFR part 1633 and others
Violent Impact
  • ballistic properties according to standard STANAG 2920
  • stab protection according to standard HOSDB, NIJ, VPAM, EN388 and others - protection against knives and spikes; cut and puncture resistance
