For the first time in nearly 50 years of company history, pely-tex will exhibit its hygiene nonwovens at IDEA in Boston. At booth 1249, the northern German family owned company will present its product portfolio consisting of calendared and air through bonded staple fiber nonwovens in various colors.
Also scheduled for the booth are product samples of chemically bonded viscose nonwovens as well as cotton with a patented diamond design.
With this exhibition, things have come full circle for pely-tex: The company was founded with the purchase of a nonwovens line from the U.S. 50 years ago. The exhibition team is looking forward to its first appearance outside of Europe. Pely-tex has already established its first collaborations with U.S. companies.
As a smaller medium-sized enterprise, the manufacturer scores high with flexibility, customer orientation and quality.
Pely-tex will present its entire product portfolio at the fair. This doesn’t include only the soft topsheets for feminine hygiene or incontinence products; there will also be several solid and soft engraving patterns for various hygienic or wiping applications available.
The nonwoven fabrics are not only made of 100% polypropylene fibers. The nonwovens made for wipes are made of fiber blends of polypropylene and viscose, cotton or bamboo fibers. Fabrics also do not always need to be white. Especially for the professional cleaning market, nonwovens are produced in different colors. Fibers in blue, pink, yellow and green are frequently processed at pely-tex, and other colors are also possible.
For three years, the northern German company has owned an omega through air oven. Whether producing particularly soft topsheets, acquisition layers for incontinence products or technical nonwovens for filtration as well as medical applications, thanks to the wide variety of bi-component fibers, the application possibilities are numerous. Furthermore, pely-tex produces chemical bonded nonwovens. Based on viscose or polyester fibers, widely different applications are served. The application range of chemical bonded nonwovens is extremely wide—from colorful household cleaning cloths, nonwovens for milk filtration systems to sealable nonwoven fabrics for food products.
Pely-tex employs more than 75 well-motivated and experienced people in the factory in Wahlstedt/Schleswig-Holstein, and the company is on a growth course. At the company’s only site northeastern of Hamburg, a new thermal bonding line for polypropylene and polyester fibers was put into operation recently.
