Breakthrough progress in spunlace processing technology, PGI's Miratec Spunlaced Nonwovens and Freudonberg's Evolon Spunlaced Nonwovens are next-generation spunlace products capable of replacing textiles and knitwear. The broad market prospects and development directions of the Law made the best comments, opening up a new market with great potential for Spunlace technology.
PGI's Miratec fabrics are the most innovative development of spunlace nonwovens, both conceptually and in terms of performance. Time will tell people whether Miratec fabrics can create a broad market for the durable textiles they target, and the price may be a major factor to consider. The limited samples displayed by PGI Company are different from any current non-woven industrial products. In fact, the term non-woven fabric has not been used to describe this product. The product has been innovative in the way of web forming and finishing. Prior to PGI's Chicobit Company, J&J Corporation studied and applied for a patent in 1996, namely "Processing Fabric Supporting Devices with a Divergent Laser Drilling Process". There is reason to believe that it is this technology that makes the shape of the Miratec product almost replicate the texture organization of most three-dimensional textiles. This patent tells people to move the laser beam at a certain fixed point of the forming drum according to a preset scan image, and the laser beam can sculpt the pattern on the forming drum, with multiple peaks, valleys, holes, and the like. After hydroentangling, the pattern on the forming drum is transferred to the spunlace nonwoven fabric, making the spunlace nonwoven fabric exhibit a textile style. Miratec products not only have this advantage, but also have high strength in vertical and horizontal directions, and the products can also have real elasticity. Obviously, finishing plays a key role. PGI claims that the new technology is Apex technology. Mirarec fabrics are aimed at the durable textile market, while the disposable polyester nonwovens produced by Apex Technology are called Miralace (hot rolling process) and can also exhibit various patterns. PGI started producing Miratec Spunlace Nonwovens at the end of 1998. In 2000, the company launched the Miratec production line on both sides. PGI and its customer Johnson Controls Co., Ltd. have established partnerships to make Miratec spunlace non-woven fabrics for applications ranging from furniture and home décor to interior trim panels.
Nike Non-woven Sweatshirt
Nike has launched a 75% recycled polyester fiber and uses PGI's Apec Spunlace technology to make a sleeveless low-necked sweatshirt. This is a major advancement in the apparel of non-woven fabrics. Ultrasonic welding suture, and has the function of temperature adjustment.
Freudenberg NOnwovens (Germany), the world's largest manufacturer of nonwoven fabrics, launched a new type of spunbonded filament microdenier non-woven spunbonded nonwoven fabric with the name Evolon in February 2000. It consists of spinning, webbing and spunlace. Assembly line production. This proprietary process is the third major technological breakthrough in nonwovens production (the company claims to have produced the first staple fiber nonwovens in 1948 and the first spunbond process in 1965). Hermann Eidel, general manager and chairman of Freudenberg, said: “The fabric's one-step production process is comparable to the multi-step scale process needed for woven and knitted fabrics. This feature, plus the Evolo nonwovens production process, includes compounding from polymer chips. Filaments, after web formation, split the composite fibers by high-pressure hydroentanglement process (each composite fiber can be split into several smooth microfibers) and at the same time, the fiber web is consolidated (entangled), and finally the microfibers containing 0.05dtex-2.5dtex are produced. Fibre nonwovens are said to have a higher molecular orientation of the polymers in the process filaments than conventional microfibres.Evolo spunlace nonwovens can withstand conventional laundering and are high in all directions Tensile strength, high tear resistance, and good drape and feel.Evolo nonwovens are expected to target a wide range of durable goods and disposable products markets, especially the apparel market dominated by traditional textiles, including Adults and children's sportswear, casual clothes, work clothes, etc. Evolo spunlace nonwovens, for example 70g/m2 to 150g/m2, can be used for T-shirts and sportswear.
Freudenberg currently has an Evolo pilot production line in operation. The company said that it will start an industrial production line at the Colmar plant in France in the summer of 2000, and plans to re-launch an Evolo production line in 2002.
