National Nonwovens has installed a 2.4 meter airlaid needlepunch nonwoven line strategically located in a contained, cleanroom environment. Production on the line is currently focused on, but is not limited to, the manufacturing of medical products. It is fully equipped with state-of-the-art electronics to control temperature, humidity, dusting and contamination, which are necessary for advanced wound care, medical devices and patient-care products.
