The spunlace processing technology has made breakthroughs. PGI's Miratec spunlace nonwovens and Freudonberg's Evolon spunlace nonwovens are a new generation of spunlace products that can replace textiles and knitwear. The broad market prospects and development directions of the law have 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 performance. Time will tell people whether Miratec fabrics can open up a vast market in the field of durable textiles they target, and prices may be a major factor to consider. The limited samples exhibited by PGI are different from those currently produced in any nonwovens industry. In fact, the term nonwovens is not used to describe this product, which is innovative in the way webs are formed and finished. Prior to PGI's Chicoby, J&J researched and patented in 1996, "the support for fabric forming equipment using a diverging laser drilling process." It is reasonable to believe that it is this technology that makes the shape of the Miratec product almost replicate the pattern of most three-dimensional textiles. This patent teaches that by moving a laser beam at a fixed point of the forming drum according to a preset scanning image, the laser beam can engrave a pattern on the forming drum, a plurality of peaks, peaks, valleys, holes, and the like. After the spunlace, the pattern on the forming drum is transferred to the spunlace nonwoven fabric, so that the spunlaced nonwoven fabric exhibits the style of the textile. Miratec products not only have this advantage, but also have high strength in the vertical and horizontal directions, and the products can also have real elasticity. Obviously, finishing plays a key role. PGI claims the new technology is Apex technology. Mirarec fabrics are oriented to the durable textile market, while disposable nonwovens produced by Apex technology are called Miraalace (hot rolling process) and can also be used to present a variety of patterns. PGI began production of Miratec spunlace nonwovens at the end of 1998. In 2000, the company started production of the Miratec production line with two sides and three blades. PGI has partnered with its customer, Johnson Controls Ltd., to expand the use of Miratec spunlace nonwovens from furniture and home furnishings to automotive interior panels.
Nike non-woven sweatshirt
Nike has launched 75% recycled polyester fiber and used PGI's Apec spunlace technology to make sleeveless low-neck sweatshirts, which is a major advancement in nonwovens. It is stitched with ultrasonic welding and has the function of adjusting temperature.
Freudenberg NOnwovens, the world's largest nonwovens manufacturer (Germany), launched a new spunbond filament micro-danned spunlace nonwoven under the trade name Evolon in February 2000. It consists of a single yarn containing spinning, web forming and spunlace. Pipeline production. This proprietary process is the third major technological breakthrough in nonwovens production (the company claims to produce the first staple fiber nonwovens in 1948 and the first spunbond process in 1965). Hermann Eidel, General Manager and Chairman of Freudenberg, said: “The one-step production process of the fabric is comparable to the multi-step scale process required for woven and knitted fabrics. This feature plus the Evolo nonwoven production process includes compounding from polymer slicing. Filament, after forming a net, splitting the composite fiber by high-pressure spunlace process (each composite fiber can be split into several smooth microfibers) and simultaneously consolidating (tangling) the fiber, and finally producing 0.05dtex-2.5dtex micro Nonwoven fabric of fibers. It is said that the polymer in the process filament has a higher molecular orientation than conventional microfibers. Evolo spunlaced nonwoven fabric can withstand conventional water washing, which is higher in all directions. Tensile strength, high tear resistance, and good drape and feel. Evolo nonwovens are expected to target a wide range of durable and disposable products, especially in the apparel market where traditional textiles dominate. Sportswear, casual wear and overalls for adults and children, such as 70g/m2 - 150g/m2 Evolo spunlace nonwovens can be used for T-shirts and sportswear.
Freudenberg currently has an Evolo pilot plant in operation, which said it will start an industrial production line at the Colmar plant in France in the summer of 2000 and plans to start production of an Evolo line in 2002.
