Airlay Technology

November 30, -0001

Cormatex’s latest development in nonwovens technology is a new Airlay System where the aerodynamic formation of the web allows replacing the traditional mechanical processes that use card and crosslapper, in most existing nonwovens applications. Thanks to an innovative Pressure Control System, this new machine is able to form a fiber web that is ready for needlepunching or thermal bonding processes, with an extremely accurate evenness both longitudinally and across the whole width of the machine.

The extreme flexibility of its technology guarantees the production of new nonwoven products by using different kinds of raw materials (traditional nonwoven fibers as well as non conventional materials such as flax, jute, sugar cane, coconut fiber, regenerated cotton, foam polyurethane and glass fiber) with a wide weight range for the final product (from around 150 grams up to three kilos per square meter).
