Turkish nonwovens producer Mogul will begin operating a new spunlace line by March 2010, marking the company's first entry into fiber technologies and hydroentanglement. The new line will be able to make 6000 tons of 3.2 meter, 30-80 gsm nonwovens from fibers including Tencel, viscose, PET, PLA and PP as well as bleached cotton. Target markets include wet wipes, cosmetic applications, fem care and baby diapers, dust wipes, hair towels used in coiffeurs, medical bandages/gauzes and, to some degree, filtration andautomotive. The line will be installed at a new building built at Mogul’s second location in the third industrial zone of Gaziantep, Turkey.
