Low-Cost Engineered Properties for Non- Wovens, Films, and Laminates

A suite of nonwoven technologies offers low-cost mechanical processes that impart specific engineered properties to commodity-priced nonwovens, films, and laminates, and even to non-polymeric materials. A wide range of textures, controllable permeability, aperturing, multilayer composites, elasticity without elastic chemistry, and other features comprises various aspects of the suite. Many of the technologies operate at room temperature, without adhesives, and are suitable to high-speed lines (in excess of 500 FPM). They are compatible with production lines that may need to start and stop.

They enhance the performance of low-cost materials — adding strength, puncture resistance, stretch, texture, permeability, and more — in ways that melt-based systems can achieve. They open potential new markets such as a new category of disposable fabric home goods (sheets, curtains, and pillows), new packaging options, and agricultural products.
