Fiberpartner To Introduce New Products At INDEX

April 10, 2011

Company showcases range of polyester fibers in solid, hollow and low melts, bico and polypropylene.

Fiberpartner will launch several new products at INDEX.

A polypropylene short cut fiber developed for applications such as wetlaid and mixing in concrete. The fibers are available from 1.5-100 dm and 3-150 mm cut with a number of finishes and packaging according to requirements.

 


Solid polyester fibers are available in 3.6 and 15 den, and produced from a mixture of virgin PET resin and recycled post consumer bottle flakes—this high quality, yet competitive polyester fiber is made especially for nonwoven products. The fiber can be delivered with a dry finish for good resilience in high loft wadding, or with regular finish for needlepunched applications.


“The mixture of virgin and recycled PET material is ensuring stabile quality and whiteness without the use of optical brightners,” said ThomasWittrup, owner of Fiberpartner. “Recently, the market for PET post consumer bottles has been very unstable. We have experienced supply and quality issues in 100% recycled polyester fibers, which is why we are confident with this mixed fiber,” said Mr.Wittrup.
