A guide to fibers for nonwovens.


a special annual feature detailing the fibers available to the nonwovens industry from the major U.S., European and Japanese suppliers This sixth annual Guide To Fibers For Nonwovens is the only comprehensive listing from most of the major suppliers to the nonwovens industry. It represents an ambitious attempt by NONWOVENS INDUSTRY to put all in one place the information needed by our readers, the users of these fibers. It deals exclusively with our industry; general purpose fibers not designed for the manufacture of nonwovens are not included.

All fibers are listed by company. The fiber type, trade name, denier, cut length (inches or millimeters), breaking/elongation (%), specific gravity and tensile strength (grams per denier) are listed in most cases. Some of the specialty fibers required their own categories; these are marked at the top of each column as they occur. The properties and/or end uses for the products, as explained by the fiber producers themselves, are supplied as well. In addition, the company address and phone number are also included; each company should be contacted for further information on any fiber listed. [Tabular Data Omitted]
