South Korean Firm Launches Hybrid Products

September 2, 2008

NTpia uses Fleissner technology to add hydroentanglement to nanowebs.

South Korea NTpia, a manufacturer of products combining nanoweb with spunbond and trico-knit substrates, has unveiled a new range of hybrid hydroentanglement fabrics, using the latest nanotechnology. The latest innovation follows two years of work with Fleissner including the recent installation of  a Fleissner AquaJet spunlace line.

NTpia’s main line, Advanced Nano textile, is a nonwoven, designed to absorb sweat very quickly from the body, while aramid-fiber products are used for industrial high-temperature filtration.

The Fleissner AquaJet offers a 3.6m working width for a two-layer product of medium weight, consisting of an electrospun nanoweb and a splittable polyester web. The bonding process is said to be environmentally friendly, as it only uses water, which is then recycled.
