Nonwoven Technologies for Diverse Applications

Converting Capabilities

Nonwovens manufactured by Fiberweb® are produced as roll goods, however a range of converting technologies are also available to ensure fabric fit and function meet the ultimate needs of our customers.

 

Converting Capabilities

  • Slitting  Fiberweb rewinds and slits an array of materials, mostly nonwovens, to the width, length, core size and other specific requirements of the customer.
  • Calendering / Laminating  Both flat calendaring and point-bonding are available to create custom composite fabrics, using heat and pressure to combine and bond two or more layers together.  
  • Sonic Welding  Fiberweb also offers ultra-sonic welding, an alternate method of laminating two or more layers of fabric together by ultra-sonic frequencies.  This technology is also utilized to make extremely wide-width fabrics.
  • Printing  Two-color flexographic printing is available to customize fabric to customer specification.
  • Sewing  Fiberweb offers industrial sewing capabilities, with the ability to sew several layers of heavy-weight fabric together.  
  • Coating  Fiberweb has aqueous surface treatment and extrusion coating capabilities to develop the next generation innovative coated products.
  • Recycling  Fiberweb uses manufacturing by-products that would otherwise be discarded or sent to the landfill and coverts them into usable goods for resale in niche markets.
