Electrostatic nonwovens demand increasing in Japan.

Electrostatic Nonwovens Demand Increasing In Japan

The demand for electrically charged nonwovens is gradually increasing in Japan, with the main applications in air filtration, such as home air cleaners, air conditioners, automotive cabin air cleaners and building air conditioners. Seven producers--Toray, Mitsui Petrochemical, Sumitomo 3M, Toyobo, Japan Vilene, Kuraray and Asahi Chemical--are currently involved in the market. Melt blown, spunbond, thermal bond and needlepunch nonwovens are all technologies used, as well as some using electrically charged film that is divided into fibers.
