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 integrated with wash-proof flame protection – made from material that is flame-resistant or non-flammable (to be used as a coating carrier).

Available Product Modifications

Each application area of our Norafin Protective Line has a certain requirement profile as well as special norms whose compliance are an essential pre-condition for the use of our nonwovens in the final product. By modifying one or more parameters, materials can be exactly adapted to the customers’ specifications.

Get an overview of the wide range of configuration and customization options for our nonwovens. We are at your side and provide personal advice to identify the modifications that are best suited to fully meet your requirements. Contact us right away.

Fibers & Fiber Blends

We use high-quality fibers and fiber blends for 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 with low weights that offer a high level of comfort & protection.


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.


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

Wash Resistance

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

Norafin KOMANDA® represents a range of sophisticated, high-quality materials that meet market demands for a lightweight, reusable, strong, and breathable technical textile, especially in the field of heat-protective clothing.

Customized Cutting and Packing

On our cutting machines, we can cut roll widths from 0.1 m to 2.4 m max.

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


We offer our customers in-house as well as external aftertreatment options for the manufactured rolled goods. Among others, the following properties can be achieved:

  • antistatic
  • wind and water repellent
  • chemical resistance to many acids, oils, alcohol, salts, and alkalis
  • highly visible; excellent visibility in daylight
    • application according to EN ISO 20471 and/or ANSI/ISEA 107
  • flame-retardant, protection against flash fire
    • application according to EN ISO 14116 and/or ASTM F2733
  • subsequent processing steps such as stitching and sewing
