Haas Nonwovens will represent the Slovenian company smartMelamine at IDEA. The company officially started making meltblown nonwovens made from melamine in September 2018. These nonwovens combine the outstanding porperites of melamine with the benefits of meltblown and the result is a material that belongs to a class of high performance materials. The material does not burn shrink or melt and remains stable at high temperatures and is UV-resistant. It acts as an excellent thermal and acoustic insulator and is well suited for filtration due to the fine fibers and its chemical resistance.
smartMelamin is nearing commercialization of products for different applications in the fields of thermal and acoustic insulation for transportation, workwear, hot gas filtration and construction.
smartMELAMINE is a joint venture of the German TITK Group based in Rudolstadt and the listed company Melamine d.d. based in Kočevje (SLO), has invested €10 million in the development of the production plant during the past 2 years. The individual components of the 100-meter-long production line were supplied by German and Slovenian machine-builders. The manufacturing process developed by TITK combines textile and chemical processes ingeniously.
