Developing technology, creating solutions

At Fiberweb® Technical Nonwovens, research and development are at the core of our strategic focus.  Fiberweb’s Research and Development department is continually improving existing product performance, optimizing manufacturing efficiencies and developing the next generation of nonwoven fabric solutions for tomorrow’s applications.


Fiberweb's commitment to advancing the technology and production processes of nonwoven fabrics stems from our dedication to creating long-term solutions for our customers.  It's this partnership with our customers that spurs on many of our R&D efforts.  Exploring new technology platforms and production techniques and applying them in the product development process gives Fiberweb Technical Nonwovens the opportunity to create improved product solutions that enable our customers to stay at the forefront of their industries.
