PrimaLoft® Bio™ spunlace nonwoven fibers tried out on the ANDRITZ pilot line to test its commercial potential
ANDRITZ has tried the first-ever biodegradable* PET 1,4 den spunlace nonwoven fiber on their carded and Jetlace hydro-entanglement process. Production trials were done on the ANDRITZ Perfojet pilot line in Montbonnot, France.
ANDRITZ produced nonwoven spunlace fabrics from 35 to 50 gsm, with 100% PET PrimaLoft® Bio™ fiber. As a result, the fibers are confirmed processing by the ANDRITZ spunlace systems as other standard PET fibers.
