Spunbond Nonwoven systems

FET has now built up an enviable track record in spunbond technology with equipment in the field covering a range of specialist applications.

What are Spunbond systems?

Although the processes are very similar, the key physical difference between the spunbond and meltblowing process is in the die assembly. In the meltblown process, hot air converges with the fibre as it emerges from the die, whereas in the spunbond process the hot air is at a cross flow to the emerging fibre. The result is that spunbond webs contain courser fibres which are stronger and less bulky than their meltspun counterparts.

Spunbond nonwovens are widely utilised by various industries, especially the medical, personal care and hygiene sectors, as an affordable disposable alternative to traditional textiles.

FET Spunbond equipment can be tailored to precise client requirements and is available for small batch production, pilot and laboratory applications. Spunbond can also be combined with meltspun technology to enable Composite nonwoven systems.

Benefits of Spunbond technology

These properties of Spunbond nonwovens provide a number of benefits:

  • Absorbency, washability and liquid repellence
  • Softness, cushioning and strength
  • Bacterial barrier and sterility
  • Resilience and stretch
