Fibre and fabric technologies
The properties of the nonwoven material can be modified using finishes, for example, to make the fabric more hydrophilic.
We provide a range of finishes for the staple fibres and for the fabrics in order to provide lubrication, antistatic and hydrophilic properties. As each customer has unique requirements in terms of processing and the properties of their end nonwoven fabric, we’d be pleased to talk to you about your specific needs.
As synthetic fibres tend to be poor conductors of electricity, friction during processing can cause a buildup of static charge, potentially resulting in a variety of processing problems. Our range of anti-static additives can we used to treat nonwovens to reduce the buildup of static electricity.
Lubricants are used in fibre production, texturing and processing. Lubrication is required to reduce the friction and subsequent wear of the fibre and machinery. Our lubricants are used in nonwoven processing to help reduce fibre-fibre and fibre-metal friction.
Synthetic fibres can often be hydrophobic upon manufacturing, meaning it is difficult for water to pass through the nonwoven, Our durable finishes can improve the hydrophilic tendencies of nonwoven fibres and increase the strike-through.
