Smart Spun rPET for nonwovens

March 20, 2014

Kilop USA, Inc, a minority- and woman-owned business, has introduced Smart Spun, a 100% recycled PET fiber specifically designed for the high-speed demands of nonwovens carding equipment. This US-produced fiber is available with certification of the post-consumer supply chain and is available in 1.2 and 1.5 denier staple fiber size. Recognizing the demanding value expectations of the nonwovens industry, Smart Spun is competitively priced so it isn’t cost prohibitive like other recycled fibers says the company. Kilop expects to see broad acceptance, especially in the industrial spunlace wipes markets, where customers are looking for an environmentally friendly solution to fiber needs.
