Mondi Belcoat is answering the market demand for customized breathable membranes with the installation of a new modular air dryer, enabling the plant to include the extrusion coating of hydrophilic polymers on nonwovens in their portfolio.

�The new polydryer supports a continuous production process of moisture sensitive polymers, ranging from master batches to breathable monolithic polymers and polyester,� said Jurgen Van der Donck, managing director of Mondi Belcoat. �This upgrade significantly increases the speed of our process, resulting in higher capacity and improved efficiency, while at the same time creating economies of scale for individual customer applications,� he said.

According to the company, customers benefit from this upgrade for all applications for which optimum barrier control and breathability are key requirements � including breathable roofing membranes with UV stability, mattress covers as well as medical disposable products such as drapes and gowns.
