Today, needle punched and non-woven product is no longer simply a thick hard fabrics and industrial fabrics of high weight, various thinner, softer and more efficient Needle punched product fabric production lines are quick update, which is Needle punched product techniques in durable products and disposable products in the field opens the door to new markets. At the same time, Needle punched product nonwovens in wet and dry filtration filter media applications have found their market Needle punched product non-woven technology is becoming the industry ‘s most sought-after technologies.
Achieve thinner fabric while ensuring quality levels
Needle punched product has been towards more lightweight materials technology direction, as technology continues to be implemented in Needle punched product thinner fabric while maintaining the same level of quality , the technology will continue to expand.
Norafin niche applications is the core of the Swiss company’s development strategy, of which Needle punched product is the main operative part of the production of this goal.
“Now we see that in order to compete with other non -woven fabric, lightweight quick access to more markets, Needle punched product has been towards more lightweight materials technology direction, however, gram weight of the product if Needle punched product reduced too much, and its quality is will decline. “Eveline Salem Norafin Swiss company marketing manager, said ,” We are working to improve the capacity of Needle punched product nonwovens or fluffy, currently this approach has made great progress in some areas, such as the cotton market and car interior materials market etc. In other words, if Needle punched product techniques continue to achieve thinner fabric while maintaining the same level of quality, the technology will continue to develop. ”
“A few years ago, companies use a production line to serve multiple market today , due to the breadth and diversity of the structure of demand in the market, our product line will be gradually refined Needle punched product according to market demand, the future can provide a lot of new usable refined material . “Eveline said many increase production, improve the surface quality and technological achievements regularity and efficiency of the production line Needle punched product products, Needle punched product has put inferior materials and processing techniques from a ” poor technique ” converted into a modern high technology , high-performance process . Today, it serves as the most important short- fiber reinforcement technology already used in many fields.
Alphastar dielectric improve the efficiency of air filters
Alphastar triboelectric media , mixing techniques using a unique fiber by carding and needling felt cloth uniform texture is formed, which is designed to maximize the use of a low resistance air filter efficiency.
Some people think that the filtration industry ‘s fastest-growing non -woven material and most diverse market, and Needle punched product technique is the main source of filter material technology, now Hollingsworth & Vose Company, Lydall company , DelStar company and Ahlstrom companies are relying on Needle punched product techniques help expand their media products.
United States DelStar technology company, for example, recently launched a Alphastar friction dielectric fibers of the material using a unique hybrid technology, carded and needle felt cloth to form a uniform texture. “This is designed to maximize the use of low resistance air filter efficiency.” Marjorie Wilcox DelStar public relations manager, said , “Electrostatic adsorption properties of both positive and negative particles , improves the mechanical properties of the filter media .”
Compared to other non -woven fabric technology , Needle punched product nonwovens uniform texture and resistance based on the efficiency of the role of improving the performance , Needle punched product cloth high bulkiness also increased dust holding capacity of the material . Currently , Alphastar dielectric friction is specifically designed for air filtration applications , but intend to DelStar application of this technology to other composite products , such as friction try Alphastar Delnet porous dielectric film and a composite pressure to the wound care products medical Stratex provide absorption layer , or Alphastar dielectric friction with his production company made Naltex biplane network combined fuel filter material.
Wilcox noted that , according to the industry ‘s assessment, Needle punched product market every year, higher growth rates. In addition to growth in its existing markets , such as automotive, carpets, furniture and geotextiles, latest technology also makes Needle punched product more durable cloth , thinner, more flexible and more like textiles, these advantages as it has won a number of new markets.
Thermofit expected to replace the car with polypropylene composites
Thermofit thermoplastic technology combines acoustic and non- acoustic properties of fiber-reinforced thermoplastics . At the same time, the material can also be applied with color and is expected to expand to automotive exterior materials market, and then replace the car at the bottom of the glass / polypropylene composite materials.
One of the areas of needle punched and non-woven products made considerable progress in the automotive industry is the car carpet, in addition, we can also see nonwovens applications in car audio market.
British Needle punched product NSC Nonwoven cloth manufacturer ‘s Thermofit thermoplastic technology combines acoustic and non- acoustic properties of fiber-reinforced thermoplastics. At the same time , the material can also be applied with color and is expected to expand to automotive exterior materials market , and then replace the car at the bottom of the glass / polypropylene composite materials.
Despite the economic crisis , NSC company executives still predict Needle punched product products will continue to grow in the automotive industry, “Although our automotive businesses affected by the global economic crisis, but the car market is a field with many potential growth, Needle punched product non-woven cloth so that automotive suppliers to reduce the cost and increase fiber production efficiency, while not reducing the quality and uniformity of the momentum is still full. “NSC Nonwoven Soares De Carvahlo company spokesman said.
