Processes impart lowcost engineered properties for nonwovens, films, and laminates; enhance performance and use less of lowcost material.
"A suite of nonwoven technologies proven on realworld manufacturing lines offers lowcost/lowcapital mechanical processes to impart specific engineered properties to commodity priced nonwovens, films, and laminates, and even to nonpolymeric materials. A wide range of textures, controllable permeability, aperturing, multilayer composites, elasticity without elastic chemistry, and a host of other features comprise various aspects of the suite. The techniques have proven themselves on production lines and those of its worldwide strategic partners both financially and from an engineering standpoint. Many of the technologies operate at room temperature, without adhesives, and are suitable to highspeed lines (in excess of 500 FPM). They are compatible with production lines that may need to start and stop. They enhance the performance of lowcost materials adding strength, puncture resistance, stretch, texture, permeability, and more in ways that not even meltbased systems using higher cost materials can achieve. They open potential new markets such as a new category of disposable fabric home goods (sheets, curtains, pillows), new packaging options, and agricultural products that don't currently exist. Market estimates for nonwoven rollgoods anticipate an over 40% increase within four years, according to US and EU industry trade groups. New markets opened by these manufacturing technologies could increase even that.
