Meltblown Nanofiber Technology

November 30, -0001

A licensing agreement was recently signed between NonWoven Technologies, Inc. (NTI), Oyster Bay, NY, and Arthur G. Russell (AGR), Bristol, CT. AGR was given sole exclusivity for the right of use to NTI's breakthrough, patented high speed meltblown nanofiber technology.

"The agreement between us is an excellent match of partnering. NTI's breakthrough in high speed meltblown nanofiber technology and AGR's 60+ years of building automated equipment puts us in a unique position in the industry," said Tony Fabbricante, president of NTI. "Since 83% of finish products are less than 15 inches wide, our three-row, 15-inch line will out-produce a one-meter line by a 40% output. One of our goals is to sell these narrow lines at affordable prices for companies to develop and make their own roll goods."

The new technology makes nonwovens that have 20% more throughputs per commercial orifice size. The fabrics contains more orifices per linear inch than competing fabrics and these orifices are as small as 0.0002 inches. Executives expect to create a one- to three-meter, 500 m/min line on which to make this material. It will target insulation, geotextile and hotmelt applications. Other capabilities will include bicomponent fibers, binano fibers, spunbonding and hydro/air entanglement.
