Imerys has designed FiberLink to enable the amount of resin used in nonwoven production to be substantially reduced.
FiberLink allows up to 40% weight loading into the polymer. Tailored particle size distribution means the addition of Fiberlink will not cause disruption to the manufacturing process by increasing pressure build up or by causing blockages. FiberLink can increase the line speed and reduce processing temperature due to the higher thermal conductivity of the polymer mineral composite.
The addition of FiberLink technology provides savings by reducing raw material and process costs. The final FiberLink nonwoven product retains key functional properties such as air permeability and absorbency and gains improvements in opacity and filtration efficiency.
