LINES FOR SUSTAINABLE NONWOVENS

Production lines for sustainable nonwovens

Conscious consumers are increasingly turning to environmentally friendly produkts. Trützschler Nonwovens supports the development of sustainable nonwovens with different approaches. They all have in common  that only fiber material based on renewable resources is used and is bonded without the use of chemical binders. The result are high-quality, 100% biodegradable nonwovens.

Line characteristic:

Typical web weights: 30 to 120 gsm for production lines without a crosslapper; up to 400 gsm for crosslapped nonwovens
Fasern: cotton, natural fibers, regenerated cellulose fibers, pulp
Configurations: various solutions for carded/spunlaced and wet-laid/spunlaced nonwovens
Typical end products: superior dry and wet wipes; also cotton wound care products and cotton pads


Producing nonwovens from natural fibers

Flax, hemp, linen, jute – all these natural fibers can also be used for wipes. Natural fibers are often oliophilic, they easily absorb oils and fats. This property makes them the ideal raw material for industrial wipes.


Proven concepts for cotton nonwovens

Production lines for wipes from viscose or lyocell fibers

Regenerated cellulose fibers' origin is plantation wood. Native trees such as beech are used as well as eucalyptus or even bamboo. Since viscose and lyocell are industrially produced fibers, they are more regular in length and cross-section than natural fibers and thus easier to process.


WLS and CP lines for pulp-based nonwovens

NBSK pulp from softwood is used in papermaking. In combination with regenerated cellulose fibers, soft, voluminous and absorbent nonwovens are created. Their (wet) strength can be varied. The short pulp fibers are wet-laid - this is where our cooperation partner Voith comes into play. Voith's formers are responsible for fiber preparation and web forming. Afther that the web is bonded with the AquaJet, dried and wound up.
