Ahlstrom is a high performance materials company, partnering with leading businesses around the world to help them stay ahead. Our products and technologies arc backed by worldwide production facilities.

In 2010, Ahlstrom's net sales amounted to EUR 1.9 billion.

Ahlstrom continues to focus on strategic growth in its value added businesses and geographically focus growth on Asia. In 2010 Ahlstrom acquired a transportation filtration plant in China and announced a joint venture for making crepe papers in China. Additionally, net sales rose by 47% in the Asia-Pacific region. Customers in the region are supported by Ahlstrom's expanding platform of manufacturing sites and sales offices.


Sustainable Future

For Ahlstrom, sustainability means a balance between economic, social and environmental responsibility. Our Code of business conduct forms the basis of our corporate responsibility. This means that Ahlstrom supports sustainability from raw material sourcing to end-use applications.

BioWeb[TM] is just one of Ahlstrom's sustainable offerings thanks to an investment in a spunmelt infusion line in Chirnside, Scotland. BioWeb[TM] is a silky, fine filament web made from biopolymer Polylactic acid (PLA). Using this 100% renewable biopolymer ensures BioWeb[TM] provides an option for tea marketers who want to improve their sustainable options.

Ahlstrom's diverse range of green wiping fabrics helps to support a more sustainable environment. No other manufacturer offers so many easy and innovative ways to produce environmentally friendly wipes for baby, homecare, personal care and industrial applications. Our sustainable offerings include biodegradable, dispersible or reusable wiping fabrics integrated with natural or recycled materials.

Single-use medical substrates are the responsible choice fight against infections, designed for health care applications such as surgical drapes and gowns, face masks, sterilization wraps and other infection control products. Choosing a single-use substrate rather than a reusable one is an environmentally responsible choice, as a Life Cycle Assessment has proven a lower Environmental Burden Index (EBI) compared to reusable linens, saving large amounts or water and energy forlaundering.

Among key filtration innovations are Ahlstrom's Disruptor[R] and Disruptor[R] PAC, high performance water filtration media that rival UF and MF membrane filters in terms of retention and efficiency. Disruptor[R] and Disruptor[R] PAC technologies can be used to reduce or remove a wide range of contaminants from water: viruses and bacteria, chlorine, iodine, iron, lead, tin, copper and membrane biofouling contaminants. Applications include beverage manufacturing, pharmaceutical make up water, point of use and point of entry filters. Disruptor[R] and Disruptor[R] PAC have received several awards for innovativeness as they provide sparkling clear water without objectionable tastes or odors.

Ahlstrom EasyLife[TM] nonwovens offer the most comprehensive range of substrates for the global walkover market. Ahlstrom EasyLife[TM] nonwovens range has been enhanced to provide new 3D opportunities for designers.

With their unique textures and suitability for high quality printing, they've opened up endless opportunities for creative exploration. In addition their ease of hanging and removal outstrips anything else on the market - as evidenced by a number of global manufacturers and distributors. Mater-ials are based on a mix of natural and synthetic fibers and their textile like touch is an important factor in consumer choice. The portfolio now covers the entire walkover spectrum--with unrivaled performance.

System Solutions For Nonwovens

ANDRITZ has successfully entered the nonwovens industry by joining two well established companies--Kusters and Perfojet. The innovative technologies of both companies complement one another ideally in excellent process solutions for a great variety of applications.

ANDRITZ is one of the world's leading suppliers of technologies for the nonwovens industry'. Its key competencies lie in wetlaid, spunlace, spunbond and spunjet technologies.

Long years of experience in the hands of Kusters and Perfojet form the foundation of the ANDRITZ technology. By uniting forces in engineering and process development, ANDRITZ can provide unrivalled expertise to the benefits of their customers. Complete lines, rebuilds, upgrades and automation are part of the portfolio, as well as business with individual machines. The nonwoven excellence brand stands for certified high-quality performance from forming to finishing, top-class service and prompt, smooth project execution.

As one of the pioneers in hydroentanglement, ANDRITZ Perfojet now has more than 160 machines and complete production lines in operation worldwide. Perfojet's expertise in the spunlace industry has lead to the development of the spunjet process. This new technology is particularly suitable for technical applications such as geotextiles, roofing, synthetic leather and many more. Spunjet fabrics unite the strength of spunbond and the softness of spunlace.

ANDRITZ Kusters looks back on an equally successful history in innovative calendering and wet finishing processes: more than 2500 calenders and 24,000 deflection controlled rolls sold to the nonwovens and textile industries. Innovation awards (such as the INDEX award in 2005 and 2008) underline the achievements in continuous research and development to meet the demands of the market.


Today, the trend in the spunlaid industry is moving towards lightweight webs in high-speed production. With the neXline finish, ANDRITZ for the first time combines all technologies from bonding to finishing. The new complete process solution begins with the twin thermobonding calender and includes dosing, application of low add-on, drying, and process control.


Also the wetlaid nonwovens technology is increasingly gaining importance and offers almost infinite options for the development of new and innovative products from a great variety of fibers: natural and synthetic fibers but also carbon, microglass, aramid, and many more manmade fibers. Thus, it is possible to produce filter material that features temperature resistance, chemical resistance, controlled porosity, high tensile strength or static and anti-static character. ANDRITZ is now able to offer wetlaid lines with hydroentanglement units. The product range includes mono-material wetlaid nonwovens without any chemical additives, nor using thermal bonding; in addition, layers of different fiber types can be entangled with each other.

Two Technical Centers Dedicated To Nonwovens

With state-of-the-art installations at the Technical Centers in Krefeld (Germany) and Montbonnot (France), ANDRITZ expert process engineers work as partners to nonwovens producers in product development. Evaluation of new processes and the definition of parameters for product guarantees are another main focus. The Technical Center in Montbonnot has complete spunlace and spunjet pilot lines, whereas the Krefeld site is equipped with a wetlaid pilot line, production and pilot calenders, as well as various wet finishing machines.

Lenzing fibers. Excellence in nonwovens.

The Lenzing Group is an international group of companies with headquarters in Austria, production sites in all major markets and a global network of sales offices. With more than seven decades of experience Lenzing is the key supplier of man-made cellulose fibers to the nonwovens industry. The unique combination of consistent customer focus and leadership in quality, innovation and technology is the foundation for the success of the company.


In 2010 the Lenzing Group set the course for the future dynamic expansion of its fiber production capacity. The expansion program responds to the growing demand for man-made cellulosic fibers and will further secure Lenzing's leading world market position.

With fibers made from the renewable resource wood, the company has a natural advantage in offering sustainable products. The cellulosic origin of Lenzing Viscose[R] and TENCEL[R] combines sustainability with natural functionality. Lenzing fibers are pure, soft and highly absorbent. Hence, they are ideally suited for sensitive applications such as wipes, hygiene or medical products. Beyond this, Lenzing fibers are tailored to provide optimized performance in technical applications. After use, Lenzing Viscose[R] and TENCEL[R] can biodegrade fully - Nature returns to nature.
