The line is designed for optimal production of both Hygiene and Medical fabrics as SAAF continues to increase sales in both its core markets and will complement the present two Reicofil lines, a 4.2m SMMMS
and a 3.2m SSMMS.
45" (1150mm); electrostatically enhanced media; calendering of various plastic nonwovens, width 6"-61" (150-1500 mm); single or multilayer MS, SMS, SMMS and SMMMS
composites up to 7 layers; Unique halar/polypropylene laminates; meltblown weight range 0.05-24oz/yd2 (2.5-800g/m2); options: colored, multi-component, wettable; high loft up to 2 inch (50mm); meets UL 94 standard, GMP, USPVI, FDA, NSF 51 as applicable; colored media such as yellow, gray, black and green; process development services of customer materials; contract manufacturing or Toll converting of customer materials; special applications with additives; cost effective commercialization of pilot programs to industrial scale.
The first is a 3.2 meter SSMMS Reicofil 3 machine and the second is a 4.2 meter SMMMS
By combining the treatment line with a 4.2m SMMMS
line and a 3.2m SSMMS, designed with medical fabrics in mind, SAAF can offer total flexibility across line width and product types for both Medical and Hygiene customers, thereby ensuring optimum value is achieved for the end user whether in untreated, antistatic or fully Alcohol repellent/Antistatic products.
Polypropylene filament nonwovens include spunbonded, SMS and SMMMS
In June 2007, Fiberweb shut down two production lines--a narrow SMS line and a narrow spunbond line--in Washougal, WA and closed an SMMMS
barrier line, a spunbond line and a portion of a pilot line in Simpsonville.
