Nonwoven lamination – the perfect combination of functionality and aesthetics
Nonwoven lamination is a process in which a nonwoven fabric is bonded to another layer of material. In our case, with a backing fabric coated on the reverse side. The nonwoven material can be natural fibers, synthetic fibers, or a combination of both.
The lamination process can be done by various methods, such as thermal bonding or the application of adhesives to form a composite. In this process, the nonwoven material is firmly bonded to the other layer, the fabric.
Nonwoven lamination offers several advantages, including:
Improved strength and stability: laminating the nonwoven with another layer increases the strength and stability of the material. The laminated nonwoven becomes more robust and resistant to mechanical stress.
Improved barrier properties: Depending on the type of laminated layer, the nonwoven material can be given additional barrier properties, such as moisture absorption, insulation effect with regard to acoustics and heat transmission, protection against chemical substances, heat or UV protection.
Improved look and feel: nonwoven lamination makes it possible to give the nonwoven material an aesthetically pleasing look and feel. This allows the material to be used in a variety of applications.
Extended application possibilities: Laminating the nonwoven with other layers opens up new application possibilities. The laminated nonwoven can be used in areas such as coverings, tents, automotive, medical products, construction and more.
This is a versatile process that expands the properties and applications of nonwovens. It enables the production of materials with improved performance properties and opens up new areas of application in various industries – a product of our HEYcover range
