Nonwovens wetlace systems
neXline wetlace systems create eco-friendly nonwovens products
ANDRITZ is the only company providing complete wetlace systems from stock preparation to drying and winding from a single source. All components ideally complement each other to ensure a stable and high-quality production process.
Hydroentanglement of wetlaid sheets allows the production of binder-free wetlaid nonwovens. When hydroentanglement is applied to wetlaid sheets containing artificial and synthetic fibers - either pure or in blends - the economics are often improved and the mechanical properties are remarkably enhanced. This results in stronger and bulkier products. Fully biodegradable nonwovens can be produced without chemical additives or thermal bonding.
Wetlace nonwoven production is carried out in four steps in the neXline system:
Fibers and water are mixed in the correct proportions.
The suspension is distributed homogeneously over the full forming width.
The web formed is bonded by water jets.
The wetlaced fabric is dried and batched.
