Flexible Solutions for everyday situations

Our nonwovens are used in a wide variety of special applications. The advantages of technical textiles are clear: They offer more flexibility in terms of their processing, as they are adaptable and drape well, while they offer high strength and durability at the same time. Additionally, their properties are modifiable and can be adapted to the individual requirements of any application.

Our technologies, the waterjet as well as the needlepunching process, allow us to produce high-performance nonwovens for industrial use as well as to process natural fibers without adding chemical binders. Further functionalization by means of finishes as well as the combination with other fiber types or textile applications are also possible.

Outstanding Performance Features of our Nonwovens:

  • dimensional stability in all directions (isotropic fiber orientation)
  • insulating (from extreme temperatures or electricity)
  • conducts water or electricity
  • durable & long-lasting
  • seamless joining of nonwoven materials by hydro-splicing (EP2554504A1 and US9309080B2)
  • sustainable through multiple use or biodegradability
  • absorbent
  • pleatable
  • chemical & solvent resistant

Some industries require even more specific performance features:

Industry & Construction
  • depending on requirements: sometimes stiff and robust, sometimes soft and light, sometimes fire-resistant, sometimes flame-retardant
  • increased comfort thanks to ambient noise reduction (sound-absorbing)
  • lightweight product solutions
  • high strength, uniform surface structure
  • good drapability to cover edges and corners; good adaptation to molds
  • breathable and odorless
  • 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
  • increased protection against corrosion
  • improved resistance to discoloration and decomposition by UV radiation
  • high surface quality
  • reduced reinforcement print-through
  • no surface penetration of the reinforcing fibers
  • homogeneity across the entire width of the fabric
  • improved wear and impact resistance
  • good processing properties

Environment

Around the world, our filter media improve air and water quality and help protect the environment from hazardous emissions every day. Our nonwovens for filtration demonstrate their performance with the following properties:  

  • high material density, resulting in denser pores and uniform pore distribution
  • homogeneity of the surface allows for an easier dedusting and increased filter efficiency
  • improved efficiency of spunlaced nonwovens with lower area densities compared to spunbonded nonwovens (weight range between 180 g/m² and 350 g/m²)
  • no perforation of the nonwoven in the spunlacing process; fibers are not exposed to mechanical stresses
  • long service life due to high mechanical strength, stiffness, and pleating stability
  • energy-saving due to low differential pressure increase and significantly higher air permeability
  • abrasion resistance
  • 2-layer technology: integration of metallic layers possible
  • spunlaced filter media for ideal:
    • filtration efficiency vs. flow rates
    • surface and fine filtration
    • very dense structures
  • needlepunched filter media for ideal:
    • depth filtration
    • high dust-holding capacity
    • voluminous structures
