Danaklon Promoting Five New Fibers

Research efforts at Danish fiber producer Danaklon, Varde, have apparently resulted in the development of fibers capable of outdistancing the machinery capability to process them.

Danaklon's new "Hy-Speed" fiber allows for nonwoven production speeds of up to 200 meters a minute. The ramifications of this, including the need for faster processing equipment, are immediately apparent, marketing manager Erik Grann Gammelgaard recently told NONWOVENS INDUSTRY. "The market acceptance of these new fibers means a new generation of nonwovens machinery must be developed to match the processability of the fiber," he said. "In addition, in the future pricing of fibers will be of a relative nature because the performance of Danaklon fibers has a positive implication for the customer's production economy."

Following a significant capacity expansion in 1990, an extensive product development program resulted in five new fiber introductions in 1991: Danaklon Hy-Speed; Danaklon "AL-Thermal", which serves as a binder fiber in air laids; Danaklon ES-C bicomponent fibers that offer both softness and strength; Danaklon "Hy-Medical", the first cardable thermal bondable polyethylene fiber, it can also be radiation sterilized; Danaklon "Hy-Strength" fibers, which result in nonwoven strength 20% higher than other polypropylene fibers.
