“The results we have seen with our fibers so far have been very pleasing,” says Fiberpartner CEO Thomas Wittrup. “The technology we have used in the fiber production process will enable Fiberpartner to deliver reliably to our global clients.”
Owing to the fact that airlaid technology has its roots in Denmark, Fiberpartner consulted with leading airlaid experts while developing its range of bicomponent fibers. This ensured that the fibers performed effectively in production, and established good strength and bulk in the nonwoven material. Fiberpartner’s range of fibers includes polyester and polypropylene types of bicomponent fibers, engineered to meet the current demand of the airlaid industry, especially when bonding to fluff pulp. The raw materials used in the fibers have been modified to achieve top performance.
“We are confident that these short cut bicomponent fibers will enable us to enter the airlaid market, which has been dominated by only a few bicomponent fiber suppliers to date,” says Wittrup.
